“It was a very difficult decision to leave Bainbridge and The Post-Searchlight,” Schuver said. “I have made some great friends and have enjoyed being a part of this wonderful community for two years. At the same time, I am quite excited about the challenges and opportunities that are ahead for me in Atmore.”

I am sure he will do the same in Atmore, he will be missed in Bainbridge.”
