  The editor: Hang Up Your Guns… Do you remember seeing the old western movies where the sheriff had people check-in their guns while in town? They did so because it seemed to create a safer and more civilized environment for all citizens.  Now we have legislators calling for “open carry” laws and...
  Another strange vote at the April 3 meeting of Clinton City Council. Approval of minutes at most public meetings is perfunctory. School District 56 board of trustees has been known, in the past, to get bogged down in spelling and grammar – them being educators and all. City council, too, has...
  Seemingly forgotten in much of the social media buzz about three national championships by three South Carolina colleges in less than 12 months is the fourth national title – captured by Presbyterian College. The Blue Hose won because they are the Blue Hose. Fox Sports held a College Basketball...
During the last few months I have been spending some time researching the status of education in South Carolina. This research lead to a study by the U. S. News & World Report stating how South Carolina ranks last in education. The answer to the above question is “yes”. I was disappointed, but...
The most important event in all of history. Or the biggest hoax of all. One of those statements describes the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Christians world-wide will celebrate, as they have for 2000 years, on Easter weekend. What do Josh McDowell, Lee Strobel, and C.S. Lewis share in common? All...

Jeff Duncan: “President Trump’s airstrike in Syria appears to have been targeted, proportional, and entirely appropriate given recent events. Where President Obama failed to enforce his own ‘red line’ in regards to the use of chemical weapons, President Trump’s decision to act in the national...
EDITORIAL: Charles Blackmon is right. This truly is David vs. Goliath. In 2016, the South Carolina Farm Bureau Federation spent about $150,000 on lobbying and the Poultry Foundation spent about $140,000. That’s nearly $300,000 in one year to keep legislators friendly to farming. Farming has its...
Several days ago I opened the paper and headed to the opinion page, my favorite section. After reading the headlines, skimming the sports page, and pausing over the obits, I focus most of my time on the editorials. One headline caught my eye: “A conservative case for funding arts programs.” This...
Clinton City Council, by a unanimous vote at its March 20 meeting, took action that violates city code and, most likely, is against state law and in violation of council’s contract with outgoing City Manager Frank Stovall. Council voted to enact a hiring freeze in all city departments except the...
