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...

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’...
In the next few months, city council has some important decisions to address. Probably the most important is selecting a new city manager for the City of Clinton. But before we can do that, we must decide on the appropriate method to go about hiring our new manager. One method would be to allow the...
Laurens County and its vicinity is a beautiful place to hike! If you don’t know, don’t just take my word for it, go see for yourself! There are some good trails to hike here close to home, and there’s no need to wait for National Trails Day on June 3rd to start exploring. Take the Enoree Passage of...
  “There’s a lot of pressure on those guys over there.” That was the sad response of someone close to the athletic department at Presbyterian College when told last Wednesday that Gregg Nibert had resigned as men’s basketball coach. Presidents have come and gone from PC since Nibert took the head...
