THE SUNDAY EDITION
COVINGTON, KY * 4 DECEMBER 2011
CHAMPS TO BE HONORED IN LATONIA TODAY
Fresh off its first state championship in football, Holy Cross High School will celebrate with the community Sunday afternoon at 1:00PM in the school's gym on Church Street. The River City News will be there for all the excitement -- will you?
After defeating Glasgow with ease, 33 - 14, the Indians returned triumphantly after midnight to a rousing ovation from dedicated fans. The River City News was there. For photos of the team's return and for a moving interview with the school's principal, Clay Eifert, click the link below.
CURFEW: THE FINAL VOTE
Following months of debate and a public forum discussing the issue, Covington City Commission will vote Tuesday on whether to implement a curfew for school-age children inside the city. The move is supported by the police and by the superintendent of Covington schools. Much of the push back has come from parents that home-school their children.

COVINGTON'S RIVERFRONT IS TOPIC AGAIN
FROM THE CITY:
The Ohio Riverfront is important to Covington's future development, and we have an opportunity to shape what it will look like! Our neighbor to the north, Cincinnati, is making significant improvements to its riverfront, for public use/public recreational space, as well as for private developments like The Majestic Show Boat, the Montgomery Inn & Boathouse and the under-construction Christian Moerlein Lager House. At this Community Input Session, we will share how other communities have improved their riverfronts, what Covington's riverfront currently looks like, and how possible improvements can be made along the Ohio Riverfront.
MONDAY, DECEMBER 5 @ 6:00PM INSIDE COMMISSION CHAMBERS AT CITY HALL

JOHNNY DEPP'S CHRISTMAS SONG ATTACKED BY RIGHT WING
Kentucky native Johnny Depp has riled Focus on the Family and the Christian Coalition with a holiday recording:
Depp teamed up with Brit rockers Babybird to record The Jesus Stag Night Club, which tells a story o fa group of teenagers that hire a Jesus look-alike whom they convince to organize a “stag night”. When things go wrong, the Jesus look-alike (who likes to have a bit of the drink and drive the occasional stolen car) ends up dying and, somehow, learns that he actually is the REAL Jesus.
