“Sadness beyond words”
Oconee County Councilman Archie Barron has died. Council Chairman Joel Thrift says Barron died at 4:30 yesterday afternoon at Oconee Medical Center. An announcement is to be made this morning as to the status of tonight’s regularly scheduled council meeting. Barron’s death is being mourned. And one of his admirers tells 96.3/WGOG NEWS her reaction is “sadness beyond words.” Barron this year was completing his first, four-year term as the councilman representating the Seneca area.
