Kayla's Corner: 148 Strong

Keeping an Eye on Covington & Beyond

Hey, y'all! Hope everybody's doing great out there!

Well, the past week has been a roller coaster of emotions for us here in Covington & Newton Co. One of our protectors - CPD officer Matt Cooper - was shot in the line of duty. By all accounts, Mr. Cooper is a great, great man. A husband, a father, a public servant. As horrendous as that shooting was, our community's response was nothing short of amazing! Like so many others, I've never been prouder to be from Covington. So heere's what's going on this week in town, and most of it is related to Officer Cooper. "Let's all be 148 Strong!"
