  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...
Ask any college senior where the best jobs are, and you'll probably hear a list of coastal metropolises: New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco.  But economic development data tell a different story.  Smaller cities away from the coasts are the true hotbeds of economic activity today, thanks to their...
  What’s stopping us from dreaming?   We received an e-mail notice about an event coming to the convention center in tiny Richburg, South Carolina, recently and it just set us off on dreaming.  The event is this: Rural Strong Expo, Richburg, SC, SBA, USDA Rural Development Bring Small Business...
  Don’t Sprint, Run the Marathon if you’re going to take away this title   You’re going to have to change a lot more than venue and number of events to make us lose this title.

  Boy, I would hate to be you. I would hate to be you if you turned down the chance to advertise in Horizon. You missed the chance to have your message presented on a worldwide stage. Our Horizon section is always great, a multiple award-winner at the state level.  This year, it’s super great....
  To better treat patients, hospitals should keep the family close   Loneliness is as hazardous to one's health as smoking a pack a day, new research suggests. Oddly enough, people in the hospital are at particular risk of becoming lonely.  Doctors, nurses and support staff may poke and prod them...
  If South Carolina Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt is really interested in assisting rural areas with economic development, he can start right outside of Clinton. He can ask Gov. Henry McMaster to read a letter from Clinton and act on its request. He can facilitate the move of the South Carolina...
  EDITORIAL: A Policy Before A Purchase     Before Laurens County spends $16,000 on body cameras for detention officers, it needs to write and adopt a clear-cut policy on when, or if, it makes the footage taken by the cameras available to the public. Body cam footage is not a public document in...
