Publisher: Living life to the fullest in 2020

And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. - Romans 8:28
 
2020 has been a rough year.
For 9 months, we've had the COVID-19 pandemic.
We've had floods, tornadoes and hurricanes.
My mother passed away in September.
In an election year, our nation is deeply divided by politics.
 
2020 has also been a great year.

VIC Column: Term Limits

When we talk about term limits, The Incumbents always say, “My term limit is every 4 years.” Or 2, or 6, depending on the office. Now, we have just passed a referendum on presidential incumbency, and those standing for election have some lessons to learn.

They have to learn how to be more relevant to their districts. 

VIC: Tired of it? That’s when it gets you.

More info on our WEB - MyClintonNews.com - on the coronavirus --  the file is 33 pages now.

 

The greatest challenge this nation faces now, after the election, is getting rid of the coronavirus. Our economy is re-opened, but every savvy businessperson knows, a business is no good if everybody’s sick.

Too sick to work.

Too sick to buy. 

Publisher: I know who holds the future and my hand

Many things about tomorrow
I don't seem to understand
But I know who holds tomorrow
And I know who holds my hand
- Ira Stanphill
 
This morning you may know the results of the election. This column was written before the election.
So how do you write an election day column without knowing the results?

VIC'S VIEW: The Law and Order FBI, and Justice

NOW THAT’S MORE LIKE IT - The FBI and the United States Department of Justice, taking down right-wing extremists.

When federal forces from the Department of Homeland Security arrived in Portland to defend a federal courthouse there, I said their time could be better spent infiltrating the left-wing and right-wing extremists who nearly have created a racial conflict in the United States.

Publisher: Presidential debate — embrace the madness

“Are you not entertained.”
 
That’s one of my favorite quotes from the movie “Gladiator.”
 
The first presidential debate could have taken place at the Roman Colosseum.
 
Chris Wallace the moderator was like a Roman Emperor giving a thumbs up or thumbs down, but ultimately having no power to stop the carnage.
 
President Donald J. Trump and challenger Joe Biden were the gladiators.
 
And we the people couldn’t look away.
 
And yes, I was entertained.

Publisher: Fast-forwarding through life

By Brian Whitmore/Publisher
 
The other week, I received an award at a virtual awards ceremony.
 
The award was mailed. I watched the South Carolina Press Association ceremony online.
 
Most years, I get to go to Greenville, Columbia or Charleston and enjoy a fancy chicken meal, while dining with colleagues. We sit through a lengthy awards presentation, offering loud applause when our newspaper’s name comes up.
 

Publisher: Nellie Ann Whitmore — a life well lived

By Brian Whitmore/Publisher
 
Nellie Ann Faulkner Whitmore, 83, passed away while she was sleeping, discovered by the morning shift at NHC Laurens on Sept. 21. For eight years she struggled with dementia and debilitating arthritis that led to immobility.
 
She was and is my Mama.
 
They say that most people get their name in the paper twice, when they are born and when they die. But Mama got her name in the paper a few more times, because her son was a journalist.
