WHATCHA GOT LORAN? After 54 years, Murray Poole is putting down the keyboard … his positive words and dedication to his subjects make him a true journalism legend

There are no ground rules for being a local hero, but the perfect model for that appellation in the Golden Isles would be Murray Poole, the long-time sports editor of The Brunswick News and contributing writer for Bulldawg Illustrated.

Murray is retiring after 54 years, leaving a void in press boxes and on sidelines throughout the state of Georgia.

The hometown paper, unless there are shenanigans suspected among the local politicians or at the sheriff’s office, wants to celebrate the good things in the community. Weddings, church socials, overachievers at the local school and the Rotary Club all get top billing from the official organ of the town and county.
