EDITORIAL: The City of Clinton provides the building, pays for the utilities and takes care of big-ticket maintenance items. Laurens County provides the staff and books (to include audio books, videos, periodicals, computers, etc.). We’re talking about the Clinton Public Library, of course, the...
  Another local example of a complex governing problem is what to do about electric rates in Clinton. We had said before and we’ll repeat – electric rates in Clinton won’t be reduced by any measure unless the cost of something else – water, property taxes, etc. – is increased a corresponding amount...
  Governing is hard. At times, it’s difficult to the point of a standstill. President Trump has found – and admitted – that healthcare is difficult. Republicans in Congress are stymied by the prospect of “fixing” health care in America. But it’s all going to be OK. A Texas congressman has...
  The editor: In response to the editorial posted March 14, dedicated to the dislike of myself by you, I have to disagree.  I am a public servant.  A politician tells you what he believes he wants you to hear.  A public servant tells you what you need to hear.  I am open and will always be honest...
  The editor: The genocide of the disadvantaged and those in poor health has begun.  Over 22 million people are being singled out to be denied decent health care.  The current GOP bill eliminates $460 billion in taxes now being paid by drug manufacturers, medical equipment manufacturers, insurers,...
  In Genesis 2:18, God says about Adam, “It is not good for the man to be alone.  I will make a helper suitable for him.”  Thus man and woman, husband and wife, under the leadership of God have been designed to fight together in the battles of life. To be a helper is not a second-hand title, nor is...
  Many great things are happening in Laurens County School District 56 and across the county. Often the long-trudge from December to April is fraught with malaise, apathy, and an overall drudgery; however, we have been most fortunate to have had a banner year in the district. Most recently, we have...
  The editor: The demand for natural gas continues to grow across the country, and specifically here in South Carolina. Growth in the Palmetto State is being driven by more natural gas usage by residents, local businesses, and industry than any other period in our history.  Our state desires access...
Laurens County Council Chairman Joe Wood continues to be an embarrassment. At the very least, he continues to embarrass our county. He should be embarrassed himself, but he probably isn’t. He has shown he doesn’t care – or at least he doesn’t want to know – what people think about actions County...
Let’s say, at some point in the future, another student decides to chase a fellow student with a knife/book bag/stick in the Laurens school district. Further, let’s say a third student videos the encounter on a cell phone. The video clearly shows what each student did. One of them broke the law and...
