    It seems like a lot of journalists die pretty young. Not sure why or if it really has anything to do with the field at all, but it's sad.

    I didn't know Ronnie, but my condolences go out to his family and friends and those at the paper.

    Damn. I hate to hear that. I knew Ronnie on a professional, but not personal, basis. He did a great job of covering Catawba during the Bennett years and became infamous for passing out copies of his "The King is Dead" headlined paper after the Indians beat Carson-Newman. I will ceremonially lift a Cheerwine to him tonight.

    This is a devastating loss. Ronnie was a great friend and colleague. Our newspapers swap coverage where we overlap. It has been a very difficult weekend for me.

    Rest in peace, my friend.
