The differences between Baptists and Presbyterians

Around the same time I named Vic MacDonald as the editor, there was a string of several weeks without a Franklin’s Corner for you to read and be amused by. The two actions, while not related, led to widespread speculation I had retired.
To be clear, I haven’t retired and, at this point, I don’t have any concrete plans to do so. My retirement is closer than it’s ever been, but so is yours. For the time being, you have me here to help bring you the best darn newspaper in Clinton. Sorry.
Let’s move on.

Dancing with a memory

I came back to the newspaper business in 2011. For five years, I had been a teacher at Newberry High School. I almost went to Ninety Six, after finishing PACE, but a friend who was the assistant principal at NHS called to ask if I had signed a contract. I hadn’t - I became, instead, a Bulldog instructor.

Cruise on home, Ted

When Saturday is over and all the Republican know-it-alls go home, none will be more welcome to take the bus outta town than Ted Cruz. He has former governor turned App Trail hiker Mark Sanford campaigning for him and some Duck Dynasty guy campaigning for him in Saturday's First in the South Republican presidential preference primary. He had run a semi-respectable race - until Friday.

You can be the lucky winner of $4.5 million in Franklin Enterprise stock

Your attention please. Drum roll. Larry Franklin, publisher of The Clinton Chronicle, has announced he will match all of the Facebook stock that Mark Zuckerberg gave away just before Christmas.
Everyone who received Facebook stock from Zuckerberg will receive an equal number of shares in Franklin Enterprises, LLC. To receive the free FE stocks, the lucky Facebookers need only to turn in their Zuckerberg stock in person at 513 North Broad St., Clinton, SC, USA.
This is not a hoax, Franklin said to this columnist. It was on Good Morning America.

Mike Pitts back in the news again. Surprise, surprise

I gave it 24-hours of thought. I slept on it. After careful, thoughtful and prayerful consideration, I have concluded Rep. Mike Pitts has lost his freaking mind.
He wants the State of South Carolina to register journalists. Just TV and newspaper reporters, he told The State paper. If you think that sounds like a reasonable idea (Why shouldn’t they have to register? What makes them special?), you should break out your pocket-sized copy of the United States Constitution.
