  The Editor, The Laurens county council needs to revisit the spending habits of the past 15 years. They have allowed the personal enjoyment and welfare of a few to creep into the taxpayers' pockets.  Allow me to point out several practices of the wasteful spending of your dollars. Mrs. Anderson...
