With Evans Town Center Park opening this weekend in advance of Friday’s concert by homegrown stars Lady Antebellum, this is a great opportunity for Columbia County to be in the spotlight.
Yet right in the midst of the planning, the county’s greatest booster has quit. Beda Johnson, who for five years has been at the helm of the county’s Convention and Visitors Bureau, resigned this past week.
No one’s talking about the details, but overenthusiasm regarding that concert and its performers likely has a lot to do with it. It seems there are just too many cooks in the kitchen.
