All of us can think of ways in which men of national prominence have benefitted us: FDR and providing jobs, JFK and inventing new materials for the moon program which we use daily, MLK for making the principles of our Constitution a part of everyday life for everyone. It is rare, however, to benefit in our own life from someone you know locally, such as your next-door neighbor. Harold Corbin has been just such a man. The legacy of the institutions and ongoing functions for which he is responsible was well reviewed in last week’s News and Shopping Guide, and the inspiring music his sons provided was enjoyed by several hundred just this past Saturday at Holly Springs Baptist Church. This tribute reflects how Harold’s love of being a Maconian carried over to everyone, even a brand new arrival.
