The Covington News - - THE SECOND FRONT - Danielle Ever­son /The Cov­ing­ton News

County em­ploy­ees and com­mu­nity mem­bers vis­ited the New­ton County His­toric Court­house on Tues­day af­ter­noon to bid a farewell to out­go­ing Board of Com­mis­sion­ers Chair­man Kathy Mor­gan and board mem­bers Mort Ewing and Tim Flem­ing. Guests signed good-bye cards, en­joyed desserts and spoke with Mor­gan, Ewing and Flem­ing dur­ing the ca­sual re­cep­tion, where they were pre­sented with plaques for their ser­vice to the county. Mor­gan made his­tory in 2008 when she be­came the first fe­male county elected chair. Com­mis­sioner Ewing, who an­nounced he would not seek re-elec­tion with a let­ter to the board in Jan­uary, has com­pleted his 12th year as a com­mis­sioner for District 1. Flem­ing, who was a first-time elected of­fi­cial in 2008, is the son of former District 3 Com­mis­sioner Ester Flem­ing. He made a de­ci­sion not to seek re-elec­tion for the District 5 seat ear­lier this year.
