LOUISBURG -- We like to say news in this area is brought to you by The Franklin Times.
The truth, though, is that for the past 22 years, more likely than not, it was brought to you by Bobby Tharrington.
Tharrington, a county native, retired as one of this paper's longest tenured carriers.
"The thing I liked the most," Tharrington said, "was meeting all types of different people and dealing with them.
"I'm really going to miss seeing them and talking with them."
