The downtown Covington office of BB&T is getting a bit of a facelift just in time for the holiday season, with greenery adorning the courthouse and lamp posts around the Square in preparation for the traditional tree lighting Thursday. Kevin Laird of Laird Painting in McDonough said he and his father will be working about a week on restoring and repainting the exterior of the old building.
