  • Earls signs with SCC

    Well, by now, some of you have heard the talk around town, so I guess I need to let the cat out of the bag. I never thought I would say this, but this is the final installment of my column, From Left Field. As of Nov. 24, I will not be working full-time at The Springfield Sun anymore. Starting in December, I will begin employment at St. Catharine College as Director of Communications. While there may be a few people out there glad to see me leave the sports scene in Washington County (you know who you are!), I am both happy and sad.
