Robin L. Miller, an attorney with Spears, Moore, Rebman and Williams, has been named clerk and master by Chancellor Jeff Atherton and Chancellor-Elect Pam McNutt Fleenor.

Ms. Miller is expected to be sworn in on Sept. 9 to replace the retiring Lee Akers, whose last day is Sept. 8.

The clerk and master handles probate matters and oversees the 27 employees in the office that serves Chancery Court.

Attorney Miller was previously with the Gearhiser Peters law firm.

There were 17 applicants for the post.

Those were cut to 5-6 finalists, Mr. Akers said, for consideration by the chancellors.

He said, "I first met Robin Miller while handling a case in Federal Court in 1990. She is a well-educated, bright lawyer. She has extensive litigation and probate experience. I think she will do an excellent job."

Mr. Akers will be honored in the County Courthouse rotunda at noon on Aug. 29 along with retiring Chancellor Frank Brown and retiring court officer of 29 years, Jesse Potter.

Mr. Akers has served in the post since 1996.

The current pay of the clerk and master, which is set by the state, is $106,016.

Roy Exum: The Gold & Ivory Tablecloth

Not long ago, in my morning reading, I happened across an obscure tale about a special tablecloth. And, as things like this are more and more wont to do, I was instantly blessed by this story. As I tracked down its origin, I learned it originally appeared in a 1954 edition of Reader’s Digest. Written by the Rev. Howard C. Schade, who at the time was the pastor of the First Reformed ...
