SEASIDE — Micah Newsome, his girlfriend and two Boston terriers drove from Augusta, Georgia, to Seaside in the midst of the pandemic last summer.
“It was a joint decision. She has family in Washington County and we both like the area,” said Newsome, Seaside’s assistant library director. “We both applied for jobs before moving, and planned to move if either of us was offered a position. We were fortunate enough to both be offered positions. We’re living with family in Washington County right now, so that was our deciding factor.”
