  Every election, we tell people to vote. Every year, few actually do. Even when there is “a big turnout,” the number generally is a small fraction of the actual, eligible voters registered in Laurens County - or anywhere. There are signs that Tuesday’s General Election will buck that trend....
  The editor: Residents in the Mountville area, and the residents of Lisbon Road, have coexisted in harmony for many years. Our only and primary concern is the unrestricted placement of industrialized poultry complexes. The number of bindustrialized poultry facilities should be limited. Why is the...
  The editor: I am writing about an issue that has recently been addressed at the Clinton City Council meetings by advocates for an anti-tethering ordinance. Just to clarify what “tethering” or “chaining” a dog means, it is attaching a dog by a chain hooked to the dog’s collar and then attached to...
  The editor: I recently read about the benefits of living near an industrialized poultry complex. Since I was advised to let facts outweigh emotion and I live within one mile of one of the proposed sites, I researched poultry complexes in other states.
