small towns like this are close, but I believe this area is the worse. What would have to happen to wake these people up.

This place is a shit hole. Nothing to do. CF got more going on than this dump. At least you can go down there at night and see humans on main st. Sad here, I will agree. :(

Well, I don't know why anyone would get mad about saying that Covington is dead, it is. I would love nothing more than to see it do better, but it isn't. There is nothing here. Our streets are empty after dark, no where to dine, have a drink, etc. Its pathetic. As the other poster said, you can even visit Clifton and there are places to eat and mingle with other people, there is more traffic, etc. What is wrong with this place??? Our youth have no where to go. Gosh, I remember when I was young, the mall would be full of kids hanging out. This area is like a ghost town after dusk. Another thing, I find this area has become so unfriendly, especially being a small town, everyone is so rude here. Its just awful. I am depressed living here and I hope to leave this area myself here soon.

Sadly I relocated here years ago and quickly left due to a company leaving...I am thankful that happened. People were mean to us and our children. We tried very hard to be friendly and git involved and really made a sincere try. I was told by a few business owners that since I was not born here people will never like us... They were right. I think it's a beautiful area and had potential as a retirement destination and maybe travel and tourism industry? I do believe people's cold unchristian hearts need to wake up. Practice what you preach... The rest will follow.

Can't do no better because y'all hate it and won't help it. You run down or run out anything good that tries to move in. How many times y'all say you rather go to Roanoke anyways? It us what you made it.

Yeah I know, I remember when the hot dog house had a arcade, We had The Electric Connection (where salvation army store is) Whitey's had a putt putt, and even nothing else goto white sulfur to the go-cart race track. Now everything is gone, I look around and see the city planting trees, replacing lines, and I think "why"? No Jobs, most of the factory's have shut down, More Hotel's and gas stations popping up, It's chaos.

If you don't like it, LEAVE it! Be man or woman enough to sign your name or come to one of our damn meetings! I get so tired of hearing this crap! New York is less than 7 hours away, move there!

So let me get this striaght William (vice mayor) if that is who you are. You want us to come to these meetings for what? You yourself just said you are tired of hearing this crap. What do you think I'll say at one of these meetings? It's not crap, it's people that live here and some have been here for a very long time and you are telling them to move to New York? These are people that pay your paycheck idiot. You've taken our jobs, killed our schools, provided no real form of entertainment for our youth, but you want us to come to a meeting so you can hear more crap. Brilliant!!

Like I said, all you all do is raise hell but never come to the meetings or actively volunteer in your community to make it better! If you don't like the jobs we do on council, then run for the office! I'm sick and tired of all the negative people in Covington!

The hand your job over to someone else, because it's obvious you've given up on making a change.

2 and 2 don't make 18 idiot. Let me try a simplier way one that even a 10yr could understand. On here (this site alone)there are pissed off people in Covington complaining how bad Covington has gotten, If we all goto the meeting can we take a guess as to how our mood is going to be? SO WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE??? Make our community better? BRING SOME JOBS HERE IDIOT!!! If you are so sick and tired then step down from office and let someone with half a mind to do it. Cancel the cruse and step your ass outside once in awhile and look because there are alot of Negative people in Covington and you seem to be the cause of it. So maybe you need to move to New York if you are so sick of it.
