Bluffton reporter to be newest Beaufort County magistrate

Richard Brooks has been in the news writing business as a reporter for 30 years — much of which was for the then Beaufort Gazette and currently at Bluffton Today.

But Saturday will be his last day as a reporter, after that he'll be joining the "honorable" ranks as a Beaufort County magistrate.

You can read more about this tale of the odd in Brooks' column at Bluffton Today and a more news oriented piece at The Island Packet.
