  The Supreme Court recently heard arguments from a Maryland case involving a 40-foot cross that was constructed by the American Legion in 1925 as a memorial to veterans of the First World War. The original complaint came from the American Humanist Association in 2014, who argued that the cross...
  Sunshine your fundamental right   For government to be of, by and for the people it must be out in front of the people. The theme for Sunshine Week 2019 is simply, “It’s your right to know.” The reason it’s your right to know is that it’s your government. From the courthouse, to the statehouse to...
  An eclipse of SC's Sunshine laws   Remember the August 2017 solar eclipse that carved a path through South Carolina? Bright daylight gave way to shadows, which then gave way to total darkness. Within minutes, of course, a summer day was again put into the sun's bright light. Another eclipse seems...
Faithful readers will remember when I wrote, week after week, about My First Wife, My Current Wife, my kids and, most importantly, my grandkids. And, while I still have a wife, two kids and four outstanding grandkids, there are too many things that weigh on my small, overworked brain that keeps me...
I admit I am not a dancer. I just have two left feet and little gross motor coordination; however, I am aware of a dance move called the “Texas Two Step.” I am also aware of other connotations of the phrase: (1) jerking one’s car steering wheel into another lane with the expressed purpose of...

Most every road and street is trashed. WLBG 860AM Laurens had a Facebook post in February asking, “What is the most littered road or...
THE WAY WE SEE IT: Jail Deaths & Prayer In Schools   Deaths in custody should always be publicly reported, and in a timely manner. We do not have the where-with-all to make that happen, but it certainly should be a state law, mandated to everyone. Facebook would be OK. The Laurens County...
  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....
  Ralph Hendricks died last week. He was a month shy of his 102nd birthday. He still drove himself to work every morning. He still went to sporting events at Furman University, where he was a trustee emeritus. He still was treasurer of First Baptist Church, Simpsonville, a job he held for more than...
  Alas, it’s 43 years too late for me. Me, a high school graduate from Mt. Pleasant, SC, who went to college without a clue as to a work future. I remember like it was yesterday, walking from Brokaw to Carol Courts, to see if there was any room for me on The Indian staff. The first article I typed...
