OUR VIEW: Spring Is Upon Us.     Activities and events are picking up - aiming toward a vision of the Fourth of July as a date of America’s new independence from the fear and sorrow of COVID-19. But as we start gathering again, let us be respectful of the fact that this illness has taken the lives...
OPINION -- 2026.   The Year 2026 will be here before we know it and, hopefully, it will be Covid free. The year is significant because now is the time to plan for what will be the 250th Anniversary of The Declaration of Independence, arguably, the most significant document in world history. The...
Another Horizon section is in the books for The Clinton Chronicle and we are expressing our appreciation to everyone who made it happen. Advertiser and subscribers keep the doors open and the lights on here so, obviously, a big “thank you” goes out to all of these who support The Chronicle. We have...
If the months since the November elections have shown us anything, it’s that the US is more deeply divided than we’ve experienced in a very long time. This has been building at least since the 1990s, starting in Congress and ultimately coming to be reflected in a polarized electorate, but it’s...

A very important decision A small story runs elsewhere in today’s issue of The Clinton Chronicle (Page 11), but its significance cannot be overstated.
