Publisher: Driving in Laurens County, not for the faint of heart

By Brian Whitmore/Publisher
 
Many people in Laurens County can’t drive.
I know this comes as a shock.
 
We have a lot of people on Laurens County roads. The population of the county is 67,493 (2019). The majority of those drive and that’s a lot of people on an infrastructure of roads that, well, could have been designed better.
 
The majority of my commute is on a road suited for one and a half cars, not two. You have to slow down when you meet oncoming traffic.
 

Terrorism

Vic’s View:  Immediate Action Required

 

 

Congress should pass a bill -- H.R. 89 - immediately. It allows terrorists to be deported.

The United States Department of Justice has a verified list of 300 people who are terrorists. They attacked the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021. And so, they should fall under the provisions of this ought-to-be federal law:

Kelly's Corner: The time I escaped a serial killer

My sister and I have gone on many adventures together, most of them your typical sister outings – going to the mall, movies, grabbing a bite to eat. But I never, in a million years, thought I would live to tell the tale of how we escaped the hands of The Columbia Killer. I’m all for a good game, but The Columbia Killer had a different kind of game in mind. We don’t know how we ended up in his basement, but we could hear the thunder and lightning rumbling above us. To make matters worse, the storm knocked the power out.

A lifetime of memories....

By Kelly Duncan

My Mama always told us that when the good Lord was ready to call her home, she would be ready. Well, on Jan. 14 with my Daddy, brother, sister and I by her side, the Lord called her home. How am I doing? Alright, I guess. I’d be lying if I said it’s been easy dealing with the loss of my Mama because it hasn’t. I’ve already been to her grave too many times to count to “see” her (there’s a good chance I’ll go there today) and I find myself constantly looking through photos and other memories I’ve saved from our adventures together.

 

Publisher: Hunting for second vehicle in expensive times

By BRIAN WHITMORE/Publisher
 
My father, Harvey, taught me a love for automobiles. And he taught me how to look for and study automobiles.
 
Daddy taught me brand loyalty — love all things Ford. Although, I also am fond of  Jeeps.
 
He taught me to love NASCAR — all things Bill Elliott.
 
Remember before the Internet, when new car dealers gave out the booklets on each vehicle. Daddy would read and study those.
