For almost fifty years, Joel P. Smith served as editor and publisher of the Eufaula Tribune, the newspaper of record in Eufaula in southeast Alabama. For much of that time, week after week, he wrote his “Candid Comments” column, which traced the often-intersecting history of Eufaula and Smith’s own life. In the selections from “Candid Comments” collected in this volume, Smith ranges from Eufaula’s “top ten characters” to the history of the Chattahoochee River, from the Tribune’s initial support of Governor George Wallace until it ceased to endorse him, and from marriage and fatherhood to press junkets in Egypt and Cuba.
