The editor: My wife and I live in Charleston, but for 27 years Clinton was our home. We still love the town and have many dear and cherished friends there. We have long thought of The Clinton Chronicle as one of Clinton's most precious treasures. Judi and I have been subscribers over many long...
It is the graduation season. High school graduates are either preparing to go off to college, enter the workforce, or continue their search for their respective purposes in life. College graduates are preparing to execute the knowledge embodied in their degrees or to try to secure employment to...
Students from an early age are taught to value the Constitution and the essential, enumerated freedoms of the First Amendment, most notably for this particular column: the freedom of expression and freedom of the press (from excessive legislative oversight or prohibition). We too often take for...
Bird song is beautiful, even when it comes too early in the spring through open windows. In springtime, we not only feel, see, and smell the world surging to life—as temperatures warm, trees bud, and flowers bloom—but we can also hear it coming to life each day in bird song.

The Republicans in the U.S. House celebrated with Bud Light. The House Democrats, showing a stunning amount of immaturity, serenaded the victors with a song used by winners of athletic events.

This week has been a wonderful time for Terri and me. It’s not often you get the chance to see both of your children graduate in two days. Such was the case this past Friday and Saturday as we witnessed Katie, our older daughter, graduate from the Arnold School of Public Health at the University of...
What animal might the average Clinton resident use to describe Clinton City Manager Frank Stovall, whose last day is Friday? He has referred to himself as a lame duck more than once since announcing March 6 he is leaving to return to his home state of Virginia. And that is certainly accurate. All...
I’ve called Clinton home for over 15 years now. I met my wife here, made friends here, invested myself in this community, and both of my children were born here in Laurens County.
