  It has been anything but a smooth walk these past few years for the Laurens County Trails Association to realize its goals of fitness and profit from a trails system to compliment that of neighboring Greenville. Just as a reminder, from their website, here’s what the group seeks to accomplish:...
  EDITORIAL: We encourage Laurens County to move with all haste to have EMS service back in Clinton.  The safety of our citizens is of paramount importance to this newspaper. Having Laurens County EMS service for eastern Laurens County anchored in Joanna, instead of Clinton, is unacceptable. There...
  In sports, it’s called a rebuilding year. Clinton High Athletics looks at it as re-loading. Last Tuesday’s 2019 Winter/Spring Sports Awards Ceremony in the Red Devil gym showcased what Clinton High School is losing. Its Athletics Director Dr. Nickie Templeton is leaving to become an assistant...
Kudos to Main St. Clinton and The City of Clinton for staging a very successful Rhythm on the Rails festival. You can usually tell things are going well when the featured performer is getting good feedback – Lee Roy Parnell seemed to be enjoying himself singing and playing for an appreciative crowd...
  OUR VIEW: Pay a Rebate.   The City of Clinton is going to receive a windfall of between $1.8 million and $1.9 million from its electrical provider. We know this because Laurens is going to get it, too. The Laurens CPW board (Commission of Public Works) talked about it May 13. The same provider...
  Kudos to Presbyterian College for another very successful Commencement. Hundreds of visitors experienced Clinton on May 10-11 - we hope they were enticed to return, like May 17-18 for Rhythm on the Rails. The schedule for Commencement Friday was action-packed, and we were able to make it to most...
  EDITORIAL: Bring Back the Derby   Now that Presbyterian College is going to hire a new athletics director, it’s time to have serious discussions about the Blue Hose playing football against the Newberry College Wolves. This coming season would have been ideal - Newberry is at North Greenville...
  EDITORIAL: Pray for us, we need it   Kudos to Pastor Kenny Moore and the congregation of Davidson Street Baptist Church for a fine National Day of Prayer May 2 observance. Moving the observance to evening perhaps gave some people a better chance to attend (it used to be a City of Clinton, mid-day...
  The scariest thing about the May 1 #SCforEd March on Columbia is the mobilization of South Carolina teachers. Lawmakers are complaining about the temerity of leaving the plantation to participate in a MLK-style march for attention. It’s right there in the Bill of Rights - the redress of...
Nothing is more infuriating to us than people who prey on seniors. People who try to get something, basically, for nothing. Oh sure, it takes time to sit on the phone and scam people, and as they say time is money - but, really, get a real job! This is an advisory from the South Carolina Department...
