City of Covington, Welcome to the Year 1999!

Mosquito Abatement District #1

If (or rather when) you experience an inordinate amount of mosquitos in your neighborhood, please notify the St. Tammany Parish Mosquito Abatement District using their Service Reporting Form. A field biologist will visit your vicinity, track down the source(s) and then select the best approach (local larvicide, truck or plane) for controlling the problem.

One can also sign up to receive notifications via text, e-mail or phone call when treatment applications will occur in your area:

Next Week is Fiddle Week!

The devil bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat

And he laid that golden fiddle on the ground at Johnny's feet

Johnny said, "Devil, just come on back if you ever wanna try again

I done told you once you son of a gun, I'm the best that's ever been"

Memorial Day Observed

American Legion Post 16 hosted a wonderful and moving ceremony in remembrance of those soldiers that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Councilman-at-Large Larry Rolling represented the City with some sincere and heartfelt remarks.

If you've never attended this event, mark your calendar for Memorial Day 2024: 10:00am, Monday, May 27th, at the Justice Center.

It's a matter of perspective.

Covington Heritage Foundation

Veteran's Appreciation Luncheon

Following the ceremony, the Covington Heritage Foundation (CHF) hosts a reception for all veterans. Coastal Environmental Services provides BBQ chicken and jambalaya, Chef Pat Gallagher provides magnificent crawfish cakes and Zoe's Bakery provides a beautiful and delicious cake. Patriotic tunes filled the air from Kellen Meyers of the Covington High Talented Music program.

Councilman Mark Verret, chairperson of the CHF, handled the Master of Ceremony duties and distribution of door prizes. Good Stuff.

"If you're moving, you're doing it right"

Hello, "Swap Shop"
"Rick, I have some fresh yard eggs for sale and two used tires. One of the tires is in pretty good shape. I'll take $10 for the good one and $5 for the other one ... 892-7989."

The radio station WARB, home of Swap Shop, was located just past Covington High School on Hwy 190. It has been replaced with a new Swap Shop of sorts:

The ARB in WARB stands for Alfred Rhody Blossman. The Blossmans have been important to the Covington business community throughout the 19th, 20th and now 21st century.

Judge Alfred Rhody (1837 - 1921) is buried in Covington Cemetery #1 along with Dorothy Ellis "Blossman" Holland (1903 - 1991).

Today, many of us know Alfred R. Blossman III as "Trey" ... a former DJ at WARB who is always reluctant to share his views ; )
