Fourth of July

The Covington News - - OPINION -

We are grate­ful that the long hol­i­day weekend passed, and de­spite all the people and ac­tiv­i­ties oc­cur­ring with the Fourth of July fes­tiv­i­ties, there were no ma­jor re­ports of in­juries as­so­ci­ated with bev­er­age con­sump­tion, fire­work ex­hi­bi­tions or rowdy be­hav­ior.

This is in part due to the ef­forts of many folks in Cov­ing­ton, Por­terdale and Ox­ford who spent hours in­sur­ing that their com­mu­ni­ties had planned ac­tiv­i­ties that pro­vided plenty to do for fam­i­lies, and that is the key word: fam­i­lies.

The ex­tra money spent in Cov­ing­ton for fire­works seems to have paid off as one of the largest crowds ever gath­ered around the Square to en­joy the fes­tiv­i­ties.

It’s events like this that help make our com­mu­ni­ties a de­sired place for folks to live and pros­per.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to our New­ton all-stars who af­ter beat­ing an all-star group from Athens, again reign as District Cham­pi­ons.

We salute head coach Brian Digby and his fel­low coaches, and we wish the play­ers the very best as they travel to Warner Robins to com­pete for the state cham­pi­onship.
