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...
  There are few things more representative of spring than baseball (or softball)…allergies withstanding. If you have ever attended a Greenville Drive, Columbia Fireflies, USC Gamecocks, or Clemson Tiger game, you know the the time-honored, Harry Caray-inspired ritual around the 7th Inning Stretch…...
