A FAN OF THE RIVER CITY NEWS AT FACEBOOK SHARED THIS WITH US:
"I was doing some research today on a recent article I read. After coming home and downloading some pics I took I found this." -'David Klein
Might as well have a laught about it!
This is the article 'David Klein referenced: The Circus On Madison Avenue/Larry Gross in which a former CityBeat columnist writes about his new life in Covington which usually only includes a trip to the Walgreens on Madison Avenue to buy cigarettes and then maybe a spell on the bus stop benches to chat with the locals.
THE WEEK THAT WAS...
Did you see the one about the poor planning of the Arts District back in 2005? The River City News obtained exclusively two memos from City Hall that indicate that the current city staff is forced to deal with several mistakes made by the previous administration. If you have followed the Arts District story, these details will shock you.
The River City News also shared photos of the USS Nightmare being towed from Newport back to Cincinnati where it serves as an eyesore to residents of Covington's Botany Hills. That neighborhood's association president, Ray Kingsbury wrote to The RC News, "The Botany Hills Neighborhood Association tried to get the USS Nightmare moved last year. Cov city has NO leverage. Frequently visited or not." The Nightmare is owned by the Bernstein Family who also own the Mike Fink, another abandoned boat/eyesore on Covington's riverfront.

EVEN HOMELESS FISH LIVE IN COVINGTON'S WELCOME HOUSE
From the wonderful organization on Pike Street, "We have a special guest staying in the Welcome House Emergency Shelter... because when a pet's owner is homeless, so is the pet. A 10-year-old boy living in shelter recently won the pet at a school carnival. A woman working at the shelter was kind enough to donate a tank for the boy to use. The fish and the tank are now in the shelter office but the young owner stops by to see his pet frequently and feeds him every night. The other children also enjoying seeing the fish. The boy is living in the shelter with his mom and three siblings. They've been here 93 days."
