A statue honoring the fallen Confederate soldiers of Newton County sits in the middle of the Covington Square Park. The City Council approved changes on Monday in order to beautify the downtown park. The plans are to erect a gazebo for outdoor concerts, purchase additional park benches and allow the Whitfield-Murray Historical Society to install a historical marker. Those changes will go before the Newton County Board of Commissioners this month. (Staff photo: Julie Wells)
