Vacation is over, way too soon


A Column by the Editor
web posted June 22, 2009
COLUMN – Vacation is over and it is good to be back home. Although, I will say that I miss the cool days, and even cooler nights, in the mountains of North Carolina over the past week. Returning home from highs in the 70’s to attend the Peach Festival on Saturday with temperatures reaching triple digits was quite a drastic change for my body to adjust to so rapidly. As we got to the bottom of the mountain Friday morning and temperatures were already in the high 90’s I radioed back to my lovely bride who was following behind, “let’s go back up."

Alas, we trudged southward as we made our way back to beautiful, yet hot, Edgefield County.

It was a very relaxing and well deserved vacation. I spent time with our family as we traveled over to the Highlands a few times, played golf in the great mountain air with my son-in-law, relaxed on one of the decks of our condos with a great cigar, or just playing games in the evenings with our children. 

It was a great change of pace from the grueling hours worked the rest of the year managing, reporting, and editing EdgefieldDaily.com on a daily basis. I would like to thank writers James Wise, Pastor Stacy Williams, and Tim Crane for their contributions during this time away from the home front as well as Mike Rosier.

I would especially like to thank our readers for your continued support during this time. Your traffic to EdgefieldDaily.com continued to set a near record pace for the month of June in spite of a scaled back production of stories and coverage.

So, it’s back to the grind of on the scene coverage of events, tailing the criminal element in our county, following local politics as only EdgefieldDaily.com can do, and any other major breaking story as it comes along.

Just think, it’s only 356 days (and counting) until vacation next year.
