Summer is a great time to tackle many jobs around the house. Here are a few ideas of things to get done before summer ends and the fall and winter weather is back upon us. - It may seem strange, but now is a great time to have your furnace serviced. Problems found now can be budgeted for and scheduled ahead of time - this is much better than finding out your furnace won't come when the first chilly night arrives.

If you had a bank that credited your account each morning with $86,400 - what would you do? Well, you do have such a bank.. time. Every morning it credits you with 86,400 second. Every night it rules off as (4 comments)

The Covington Days Festival will be held at a new location site this year. The festival has been held at the Covington MultiCare Clinic grounds for the past several years. But Covington MultiCare is expanding, so the festival is being moved to Cedar Heights Middle School.
The parade will once again travel along Kent Kangley, but this year it will begin at Jenkins Creek Elementary and end at Cedar Heights Middle School. If you are out and about on Saturday, know that the portion of Kent Kangley between the two schools will be closed (0 comments)
