Walt Reichert has left his post here as the editor of The Sentinel-News to sit on a bucket and feed chickens.
Some may call it retirement, but Walt would say it's a promotion - a reward for his many years as a teacher, writer and journalist.
Enjoy it, sir. You've earned it.
When I came to work here at the paper over four years ago, Walt was already dreaming of the day that he could forsake the daily grind and spend more time tending to the chickens, ducks, cows, and vegetables on his hobby farm near Simpsonville.
