Finding a home in another Butler
Published 12:00 am Saturday, January 31, 2004
Hello Greenville and Butler County. I have arrived. For those of you who may not know who I am, namely all of you, I am Rick Couch.
I have joined the wonderful staff of the Greenville Advocate to be your newest friendly neighborhood reporter.
However, before I get started I felt that it would be necessary to let you know a little bit about myself.

I am a very simple man.
I enjoy the simple things in life that give most Alabamians pleasure..
I have never met a fish that I did not want to catch.
I have never watched an Alabama football game that I felt was refereed fairly.
And yes, I am stupid enough to sit in a tree stand in freezing temperatures from time to time.
I am also a firm believer in the role of the local newspaper.
That is the number one reason that I am so thrilled to be one of the newest members of the Greenville Advocate family.
It is my hope that I will slowly, but surely become acquainted with each of you in order to do my part to further the community.
I believe that the hometown paper should feel like an old friend.
Through my work in the community I hope to quickly work into that role as well.
Your hometown is not so different from my own.
I grew up in Butler, Ala. where I learned many of the same values by which you were raised.
Among these values were hard work, and honesty.
I have carried these with me throughout my life and hope that they will become evident in everything that I do.
As Greenville grows, I hope to grow with it.
I hope to grow personally as well as professionally.
I feel that we have a great deal to offer each other.
That is why I am willing to do whatever it takes to help my new hometown in any way possible.
Though I am new to Greenville, the area is not new to me.
Through my many travels I became very familiar with several people from Butler County.
I have traveled to their homes where I was always welcomed with open arms.
Through this process I fell in love with the area.
For that reason when I saw an opportunity to start a career here I gave it my best shot.
Good fortune allowed me to accomplish just that.
Now that you know a little about me and how I arrived I hope that we can soon become good friends.
I can promise you that I will always do my best to keep you informed and entertained.
In return I hope to gain your friendship and trust.
