Editor’s Note: Letters regarding the upcoming election will not be accepted after today.
This letter is in reference to the road on Hillcrest Drive.
Time has gone by, and we still have no road. We did get the rocks removed and a new drain pipe further up the road — thank God for that.
It’s a very disheartening situation. There has been a lot of paving and improvements all over town. Somehow we have been forgotten.
We have new trails, boat ramps, a new wall in Fairlawn, new sidewalks and new paving everywhere.
What can I say, we need a miracle.
I have, and others also, have lived here for 50 years, and it’s a long time to be skipped for something of less importance.
All of the work done throughout Covington looks great.
Back in April, I spent over $400 getting motor mounts on my car.
The road and creek are horrible.
Someone has a sign in their yard that says, “Don’t give up.”
With COVID-19 and all that we already deal with, we need a little hope and cooperation from those in charge.
That would be great.

It’s hard to believe how low some people in this town of Clifton Forge can be, so devious and mean, spreading vicious rumors about people that aren’t true.
This person was spreading around town that Jeff Irvine had COVID-19, which isn’t true.
This rumor came from one of Jeff Irvine’s competitors. They must have hit the panic button to stoop so low to spread lies about Jeff.
I received another flyer in the mail from two of his competitors — they both have businesses on Ridgeway. One of their wives runs a second-hand store, the other one puts roofs on houses. That doesn’t take much leadership skills to do that.
They say they have plans for a better Clifton Forge. Has anyone ever heard of these plans, or what they are going to do? Probably not, and you won’t hear from them until after the election, either.
These two are copying from the State and Federal election, before the election, they promise you the world and after the election, you don’t hear from them until the next election.
Oeltjen has already been on council for four years. Why hasn’t he been fighting to put his plans in motion?
My husband has put roofs on houses and other buildings and it doesn’t take a German scientist to do that.
If these two men are so great as their flyers say they are, why aren’t they in Washington, D.C., to help run the country that’s in trouble.
Stick with Jeff Irvine. He cares about the people here in Clifton Forge and goes out of his way to help anyone that has a problem.
