CORNER: A shorts and T-shirt kinda guy

Since you asked, let me give you another retirement update. Last time, I told you I have shaved everyday since I retired (except Saturdays, which don’t count). That has continued.

Another thing – I officially retired June 16. I have not had on a pair of long pants since. I’m a shorts and t-shirt kind of guy. I went to a meeting last week at City Hall (you may know it as the M.S. Bailey Municipal Center – brought to you by M.S. Bailey and Son, Bankers).

It explains why so many of us died Sept. 11, 2001 trying to get into the Twin Towers. It explains why journalists want to be war correspondents. It explains why I have applied to my publisher for hazardous duty, county council pay.

Set ‘em up. Knock em down, oh, never mind.


I have no quantifiable evidence of this at all, so I’m just going to say it. Bowling is bouncing back.

That fact, if it is a fact, offers a unique opportunity for Clinton. We have a bowling alley. As best I remember, it’s owned by somebody in Connecticut, and since we are not Greenville, we don’t have bowling. Even though, we have a bowling alley.

Mental Health agency provides multiple “access points” for people who need help


Mental health services for the seven-county region that includes Laurens County are forging a partnership with Presbyterian College’s newest program.

PC is bringing on-line in the coming year a Physician Assistant Program, and training through the clinics of the Beckman Center for Mental Health could be a component of that advanced medical training.
