Kaye Adams Phillips, 54, of Covington, died Dec. 5 at Emory University Hospital. Born in Fulton County in 1953, she retired from AT&T with 25 years of service. Mrs. Phillips was a seven-and-one-half-year liver transplant survivor and a very active member of Covington First Baptist Church and Pairs and Spares Sunday school class. Mrs. Phillips was a devoted daughter, wife and mother and loved cooking and home decorating. She was preceded in death by father Herman P. Adams.
At the request of Covington Police Chief Stacey Cotton, the Covington City Council voted to table the second reading of an ordinance which would make it legal for convicted felons to work in establishments serving alcohol two years after their conviction date.
With the official announcement of the host cities for the 2008 Tour de Georgia on Wednesday by event organizers, local suspicions were confirmed - the city of Covington will not be hosting a stage race next year.
