  Let’s plant more trees. Kudos are due the City of Clinton, and its planting partners, Clinton Canopy and the Agriculture Department of Clinton High School, for putting trees and plants all over the place. The latest adventure was in Clinton Mill Park, right beside Calvary Baptist Church, in one...
Police across South Carolina and America have spent millions of dollars on officer body cameras. But The New York Times just reported that a rigorous study released last week shows that these cameras have almost no effect on officer behavior. The 18-month study of more than 2,000 police officers in...
First of all, congratulations to Hoyt Hanvey Jewelers for their 45th year in the Clinton business community. They remodeled recently, and on Thursday, the result was revealed to Chamber of Commerce and City of Clinton representatives, and friends of the uptown business. This event can be considered...
  We are not really sure why Gov. Henry McMaster would go along with a no-press-allowed campaign appearance by President Trump last week in Greenville. Gov. McMaster is going to need all the press help he can get to fend off challenges by James Smith and Catherine Templeton - and perhaps others -...

We are not among those. The List Of Disgrace is now topped by Alaska. Shame. Shame, on those people for allowing...
  Should a person be disqualified from serving as city manager because he or she is “from here”? That is exactly what the Clinton City Council heard Sept. 18 from a city employee of 37 years experience. We are pretty sure that is illegal employment discrimination. “Place” discrimination is not far...
  It is a huge understatement to say about Clinton and Hurricane Irma, “We dodged a bullet.” Except for an unfortunate, house-wrecking tree-crash on Calvert Avenue, there was no major damage to the city as Irma transitioned from a hurricane to a tropical storm. Our brave utility crews patched our...
COMMENTARY: We are so mad we could spit. This is bad. This is really, really bad. This is pure-T bad. It's being cleaned up, so there won't be any criminal charges.
