Christ Temple Church invites you to
New Year's Eve at the Trailhead

Here's Wishing You the
Happiest of New Years!
Inside each of us is a purpose. This purpose is aching to be found, to get out and to make our family, our community and / or our world a better place.

For the year 2021, my wish is for each of us to discover that purpose and to enjoy the journey towards its fulfillment.

Today, we (the City), have a problem with traffic. The streets of downtown were laid out almost 100 years (1813) before the invention of the automobile. The streets of New Covington (from St. Tammany Parish Hospital to Collins Blvd.) were laid out in 1887. During the early 20th century cars were small and rare (see nighttime picture above). Today almost 15,000 people drive into and out of Covington each weekday.
We now have reached a point where there are more vehicles than street.
Patience is a virtue.

Utility bill auto-draft from your checking account eliminates multiple steps for your utility billing clerks ... which makes city hall more efficient. 
That's a good thing.
