‘When in the Course of human events …’

City Hall closed Monday for Independence Day

COVINGTON, Ky. – Some 246 years ago come Monday, 56 courageous men signed a document making it adamantly clear that they, their families, and their neighbors had no intention of living under the overbearing rule of the British Empire an ocean way.

It was, colloquially speaking, a big “Buzz off!” missive to King George III.

We all know what happened next.

This weekend, before you grill hamburgers, swim, wave a flag, or shoot off fireworks, it’s worth reading that document: Declaration of Independence.

… which is to say, City Hall will be closed on Monday, the federal holiday, or Independence Day. We will reopen at 8 a.m. Tuesday.
