  The editor: Recently an ordinance banning the tethering of dogs in the City Of Clinton was presented to our city council. This ordinance restricted the tying of dogs for more than 2 hours per day or during inclement weather or when the owner is not around to provide supervision. There were a few...
  So, I was not eavesdropping, but when you talk on your phone at Chick-fil-A as if it were your own private office, but loudly enough that everyone in the room can hear every word (which may actually be the point), you shouldn't be surprised if someone listens – and then writes about it later. I...
  In less than a week’s time our nation, and our community, will have an election. A chance for you, each and every one of you, to make your voice heard regarding several key issues. You will determine on Tuesday who leads our country, who is your voice in Washington and in Columbia, and who the...
  Being needy was the motivation for many of the things that I have been involved in, in my life.  And joining the National Guard is no exception.  The $2.50 I would get for attending a two-hour Monday-night drill was enough motivation for me.  Never in my wildest dreams, would I have ever thought...

The editor: I feel compelled to respond to the recent rash of complaints of proposed new chicken houses being built in Laurens County. First of all, I do not expect to change anyone’s mind. Most people have strong opinions on this subject, but I think facts should outweigh emotion. My family has...
  The Book of Matthew in the Bible tells the story of Jesus. The Hurricane of Matthew is the story of destruction and death and, like the story of Jesus, it’s still being told. Laurens County was spared for the most part. There were a few scattered power outages and a few trees fell and we had some...
  140 years ago, a very pivotal backroom agreement changed the course of American history, especially for African Americans.  In 1876, the outcome of the presidential race rested upon the disputed tabulation of votes in Florida, Louisiana, and South Carolina. Each state submitted two sets of...
  Many of you have read or seen the book by Dr. Seuss Oh the Places You’ll Go! Terri loves this book and made sure our girls had it and, more importantly, internalized it. One of my favorite lines from the book is, ““Kid, you'll move mountains.” I know I hope we equip our children to do so. It is a...
