COVINGTON, Ga. - Covington resident Hassan Fallah stands in front of The Covington News building with an American flag he purchased 25 years ago upon his arrival here from India. To celebrate his 25th year anniversary of American citizenship, he said he would take a run Saturday from Covington to the top of Stone Mountain and celebrate it with other friends and members of the Indian community.
"I've only lived in Covington since I've lived in America. Same house, same street, same city, and I'll probably die in Covington," Fallah said. "This is my city."
