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. But, make no mistake. If you don’t own an insurance company, you are not going to be better off if the U.S...
What can I offer my good friend Larry Franklin as he contemplates retirement in only a matter of weeks? Advice? I’m sure he’s already gotten plenty of that. Money? I don’t have any. Old whiskey and a long cigar? Well maybe we can share. I was in about my 13th month of contemplating the true meaning...
The first 100 days of the Trump presidency is now history. To listen to much of the mainstream media, which operates largely as a propaganda arm for the Left, you would think President Trump was a character off of The Muppet Show. Never before in my life has the media attempted to make a President...
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. As I prepare to move away to a new chapter in my life, I realize that there are going to be a lot of things I will miss...
The words still chill me. I don’t often leave movies quoting a script, but I may never forget this line. The movie was “Titanic;” I knew how the story ended, and it still rocked my world. After the iceberg, reports started coming in to the captain and his officers, who were meeting on the bridge....
Not too many Sundays ago, while waiting on my wife to grab something at the dollar store below the sub shop, two long time friends walked past our automobile and talked. I have known both of these friends for many years, and I still value their friendships. These two were Jacob Moore and Bonnie...
Clinton, Laurens County and Musgrove Mill Golf Club put their collective best foot forward last week in hosting the ACC men’s golf championship. From the City of Laurens trolley to a first-time-this-early Town Rhythms Saturday night. From team-specific celebrations in local homes to colorful...
I guess I met Larry Brock Franklin either at a Laurens County Council or hospital board meeting. That was back in the days when hospital board meetings were exciting (if there was such an animal), from a newspaper man's perspective. The board was in the process of trying to centralize the hospital’...
