New Early County News columnist

Meet Len Robbins

Len Robbins Len Robbins The News is excited to introduce a new feature to our commentary pages — the weekly musings of our friend and fellow publisher Len Robbins of Homerville, Ga.

Over the last decade, no Georgia newspaper columnist has won as many writing awards as Len Robbins. His syndicated humor column is published in over 25 Georgia newspapers weekly.

“Robbins has more wisdom, analogies and witticisms than, well, Carter has pills and he’s not afraid to use them,” Gale Egar said of Robbins in the Valdosta Daily Times. “He only says what the rest of us are thinking.”

A compilation of his best columns, “The Greatest Book Ever Written About Cheese,” won Robbins a 2007 nomination as Georgia Author of the Year. Readers will find Robbins’ take on family life, living in a small town and Southern oddities to be amusing and often hysterical. Some of you will find yourselves online searching for that book about “cheese.”

A graduate of the University of Georgia and Clinch County High, he has been president of the Clinch County Chamber of Commerce, Lions Club and Athletic Booster Club and has been the radio “Voice of the Panthers” the last 18 years.

Robbins, the immediate past president of the Georgia Press Association, is editor and publisher of three South Georgia community newspapers, The Clinch County News, Lanier County Advocate and The Echols County Echo. He and his wife Jenny and three children live in Homerville, Ga.
