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.

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…...
  I have had the privilege to live in multiple communities.  I have worked as a member of a large Upstate municipality and I have worked closely with leadership on all levels.  I have come to know that there are many types of leaders and leadership styles.  Some leaders and their models of...
  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?
