It was a week when sports editor Robert Howey was on vacation and I was attempting to cover for him. From across the counter, she gave me all the pertinent information about the upcoming scholarship fund- raiser golf tournament.
I was writing down the who, what, when, why and where when she stopped mid-sentence. I glanced up from my notepad. Her eyes were filled with tears. Then I recognized the name. The scholarship was in honor of her son, who died in a bicycle accident in downtown Charleston. He had just graduated from Clemson and was working in the port city.
