Best Local Columnist

Tommy Tomlinson, Charlotte Observer

Staff Pick

Tomlinson, who left his Observer gig in May, now joins the pantheon of Most Popular Columnists in Big O History, along with Kays Gary, Dot Jackson and Dannye Romine Powell (and funny-guy Doug Robarchek, another kind of columnist altogether). Tomlinson is a passionate, first-rate wordsmith who built a loyal, loving following by telling great stories packed with insight and, at his best, down-to-earth wisdom. We and many others already miss him terribly.
