A Moment From MB: Talkin' the #COV, the home county & TPC; The Road Ahead ; Odds & Ends

Greetings, Dear Reader, and I hope this post finds you well. It's been awhile since we've had a tête-à-tête. 

So, in the past two weeks I've put out pieces on the financials of both the City of Covington & Newton Co. Both are concerning. Both are based on audited information & were pulled directly from the governmental entity's own paperwork, but yet, somehow...magically, my information is "not accurate." 

Well, frankly, I call B.S. 

I'm more of a facts & data type of fella, you can keep the rhetoric & guh'mint doublespeak to yourselves. 

But the big thing is this: as I was mentioning to a good friend of mine (and fellow fan of freedom & one of the advertising supporters of TPC), "it's not like it's gonna do anything anyway." This stuff gets put out there. The minority of folks who actually care about it react with disdain - as well they should - and then...nothing ever seems to happen. 

It seems disheartening, but it's really just the way of the world, friends, and that's okay. We "...beat on, boats against the current." 

As some of you may have noticed, TPC has been rather post-heavy here recently. In fact, this is the 5th post in about 25 hours. 

Why the increase?  

I'd set a goal, as Editor of this publication, for 40 posts in the month of April, since we announced the ramping up our content. And by gosh, I wanted to hit that goal. With the "Past Piedmont Chronicles" that's got hit at around 11:55, we're gonna meet that goal. "I love it when a plan comes together!" 

As for the road ahead, it's just to keep doin' what were doin'. And it is we - our contributing writers, guest columnists, local advertisers, friends of the program, but most importantly you - the reader. And thank you for that. 

Speaking of contributors, as you may have seen - Alisa Brown has come on board as our Nature Correspondent. And we had two guest correspondents recently as well - my lovely bride, Mrs. Ann McCart, and The Professor - Adriane Ivey. 

Look for the newest print edition of The Chronicles on Friday, May the 3rd. 

And keep an eye out for Kayla's Corner, the Music Minute & another edition of the TPC Report, all coming to you later this week. 

As always, thank you for reading. 

Your Friend, 

MB McCart
