Well, start buying the Virginian Review. Every few months, Alleghany county has a drug round up (usually the same peeps over and over and over again. So, what to do around here is pretty obvious. The county is filled with drunks, pill heads (shooting up teens - adults in their 60's)cocaine cowboys, crackheads, and now popping up from Locust street to Fincastle...meth heads making shit out of two liter pop bottles! If you are new around here and want to look 20 years older than you are in about 18 months, well you've come to the right place! Not to mention the extremely high cancer rate in the area.

Yes but we all know that the high cancer rate comes from westvaco.So of corse the truth about that has to be ignored.What happened to that lawyer coming to Alleghany county to gather people to sue westvaco??

I would rather not buy the covington "news paper" if thats what someone calls news I can live without it.All it is is 2 pages of church ads,some BS that happened in another state and some more "filler" BS.Anything good or that would be considered real news is CONVIENTLY left out.Like when any "business" people in this area get caught doing anything it does not make the paper.Also the family that owns the "news paper" LOL I will not help to make them rich.

Yes Alleghany county is the little hick town that long ago sold itself for 50 pieces of silver to westvaco.The problem is that silver has turned to brass.Alleghany county has no other jobs thanks to westvaco and its total dominance and control of the area.Every thing that goes on in Alleghany county has to be to the benefit of westvaco without thought given to the countless people who live in this area that do not work there and need jobs and an income too.You look at other small towns close by they have built up but covington has not ask yourself why.

True westvaco does pretty much own the hole town, but unfortuantly i like living there especially in calaghan , back in the sticks . And i have even noticed that town has pretty much stayed the same , same old houses that has always been there

Staying the same is not a good thing especially when you are talking about towns or cities and jobs.When no new jobs are created that means people are going to leave the area to find work.When an area stays the same as in the case of Covington/Alleghany county things never improve, peoples quality of living never changes.Yes in Alleghany county things have never really changed in the last 30 years and as MOST people can see thats not a good thing.

true staying the same isn't always a good thing, But after working in downtown Roanoke it is always good to come home to something that isn't so clutered , but jobs are hard to find in town >

So cluttered??? There are many neighborhoods off williamson road that are not cluttered.There is just no way to compare Roanoke to Covington.One is a REAL city with jobs,stores,restaurants,and many other things to do.One is a dried up mud hole with nothing.

Everyone should complain about covington unless you are a DR or in some other profession in this town that makes a good wage.Why would anyone not complain about an area like this??? Sometimes if enough people complain it helps to improve things.When people stay silent nothing changes.
