SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

Boy oh boy, the journalism Gods are looking down on you. You landed one of the most respected writers in Orange County in Fred Swegles. I’ve known him for years (we went to San Clemente High School together) and have admired him as long as I’ve known him. He is a fair, honest and a gifted writer. Congratulations to the SC Times, you scored a huge victory in Fred.
