PUBLISHER: Clinton City Council — Time to lead.     By Brian Whitmore   Covering Clinton City Council’s meeting on Monday was like watching the Atlanta Falcons — you start out with high expectations, but in the end nothing is accomplished.   Hey, it’s government. Sometimes it’s better when they don...
  I stood at my senior seminar in front of my liberal, progressive professors and presented my research on liberal bias in mainstream media. That was in 1995 and somehow I passed and received a degree in communications from USC Upstate. A conservative journalist entered a field that slants to the...
  Brace yourself.   You’re about to read some good things about President Donald J. Trump in a newspaper.   I’ll refer to our President as President Trump in this column, not just Trump. It’s disrespectful to the office to just use a leader’s last name.   I’ll have to lead with a disclaimer....
  Remember as a kid that thrill you got when you found an Easter egg. I’ve got that feeling again. My family and I are now geocachers.   Geocaching (noun, jee•ow•ka•shuhng): the recreation activity of hunting for and finding hidden objects by means of GPS coordinates posted on a website.   I first...
"I'm proud as anyone That's where I come from.”   - Mac McAnally (Back Where I Come From)     Community used to grow up around a mill. Now it’s anywhere Dollar General locates. I grew up in a small town (population 665), just 17 miles from Clinton — Enoree, South Carolina. Yes, it has a Dollar...

Laurens County is trashy. Yes, I said it. Don’t act offended. You know it’s true. I hate that it is trashy. I take pride in where I live. Unfortunately, others don’t. Most every road and street is trashed. WLBG 860AM Laurens had a Facebook post in February asking, “What is the most littered road or...
Build the wall. Yes. I said it — that taboo phrase that conservatives can’t say without being ripped on social media and called a racist. I lock my doors every night. It’s not because I hate the people on the outside, it’s because I love the people on the inside of my home more than I love the...
  Now is the time for New Year’s Resolutions. Nobody ever wants to gain weight and be broke. Now those are resolutions I can keep. Losing weight, saving money, making new friends, finding a new job or hobby, finding love and travel are on every list, according to Offers.com — they surveyed 1,000...
  EDITORIAL: A Christmas Message   Prince of Peace   “For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders.  And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” – Isaiah 9:6   Prince of Peace.
