    I believe Rick Scoppe just took over as SE there. Good guy.

    Cox has its three North Carolina properties - Greenville, Rocky Mount and Elizabeth City - for sale.

    Freedom is stable - at least as of this posting. Stay tuned, though ... who knows anymore?

    Last I heard, he was based in Columbia covering the Gamecocks for The Greenville News and his wife worked with the editorial pages at The State.

    They've been in Columbia a long time. Cindy, Rick's wife, used to be a government reporter for The State. She was a good one. I ddn't know Rick had switched over to sports. Is it true that he's the new SE in Jville? I was surprised by that post since I didn't think he'd ever leave Columbia.

    I knew nothing of Rick moving to Jacksonville until I saw the post. If he is moving to the Old North State, he must be working a notice.

    Last day was this Thursday. Didn't cover the Gamecocks game on Saturday.

    Good. For. Him. He's headed close to home. A great move for him and a good hire for the NC folks.
