An Invitation (our view).           OK, so, now it’s our turn. Coming off a very successful Squealin’ on the Square the first weekend of October in Laurens, our area gets to show off again this weekend with Rhythm on the Rails in Clinton. The festival celebrates Clinton’s historic and current role...
OUR VIEW: Anniversaries.     First off let us say, Squealin’ on the Square was great. Not one complaint did we hear - and that’s not easy, managing that amount of people in a confined space. Activities were everywhere, and the Laurens Rotary Club was like a carnival barker, interesting people in...
Journalism.     You’ve got to loved a retired journalist. Ernie Segars, who did such great work at The Clinton Chronicle, then retired as Laurens County Administrator, and now writes an occasional column for The Laurens County Advertiser, comes to mind. Segars, in retirement, is chairman of a local...
EDITORIAL: The Human Factor.   Laurens County will have $13 Million to spend from the federal COVID-19 relief fund. A Committee-of-the-Whole of the Laurens County Council will meet to decide how the money is to be allocated. At the State level, some of this money has been proposed for the widening...
OUR VIEW: City Manager.       Just as we did when Thomas Higgs became the Laurens County Administrator, we are offering unsolicited advice to Rebecca Vance as she becomes the Interim City Manager for the City of Clinton. People managing is the same, of course, but there are different challenges in...
OUR VIEW: Expanding History.       Congratulations are in order to the Rosemont Preservation Society for earning a $350,000 SC Conservation Bank grant that allows for land purchase at the Waterloo historic site. It’s a bit “raw” right now; but brush cutting has been going on, so there could be a...
OUR VIEW: County Administrator.     Congratulations are in order for Thomas Higgs, the former interim city manager of Clinton, who now will be the Laurens County Administrator. In Clinton, he replaced former city manager Bill Ed Cannon, who retied without explanation. At the county level, Higgs...
The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control would do well to heed the request of the Laurens County Legislative Delegation. We are sure the agency does not need a reminder, but they are among the people who control the purse strings. Delegates have asked DHEC officials to...
OUR VIEW, Good Job, Laurens.     Our County Seat, the City of Laurens, deserves a pat on the back for staging a successful Independence Weekend celebration on July 3. We also were in proximity to July 2 Lights on the Lake and July 3 Town of Ware Shoals fireworks and music festivities to celebrate...
OUR VIEW: This is getting embarrassing.       We do not pretend to know why people starve and mistreat animals. We don’t live in that world - we don’t want to live in that world. We thank God that there are law enforcement officers and humane treatment people who do live in that world....
