EDITORIAL: We are Thankful.   So many times in this age of distancing and quarantining we fail to understand that we have much to be thankful for in our nation. It must have been similar that first Thanksgiving - a colony on the brink of extinction wondering what tomorrow would bring. From where...
EDITORIAL: A Museum? A Way Forward?   Historic-tourism in Laurens County will take a giant step forward this summer when The Witherspoon Building new home of the Laurens County Museum opens for business. A “soft opening” was staged this past Sunday, and there are concrete plans for having the...
    Anyone interested in and eligible to donate blood is urged to do so this Friday (Oct. 23) at a Blood Connection drive sponsored by the City of Clinton. Any time there is a medical emergency in the nation - and Coronavirus/COVID-19 certainly applies - blood donations drop off. It’s only logical...
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. A federal court changed a key provision in how we vote. The United States Supreme Court has changed it back. From our hard-working friends at the...
Finally. Finally, finally, we played some football. Yes, we’ve had pre-season and jamborees, but there’s really nothing like that playing it “for real”. COVID-19 stopped it from being played in August - truth be told, we like September even better. CHS protocols were in place and working well at...

OUR VIEW: Be a good neighbor, wear a mask.     COVID-19 isn’t going away anytime soon. Shutting down the economy a second time isn’t an option. The compromise — wear a mask when you can’t social distance. Masks are encouraged by the Cities of Clinton and Laurens and by Laurens County. The Chronicle...
  EDITORIAL: A good job by District 56.     Governor Henry McMaster says now that he would prefer it if School Districts would re-open on Sept. 8. This came two days after District 56 laid out a comprehensive plan to restart on Aug. 24. So, teachers - again - have to rely on the old reliable, “...
  Our View: Capital Initiative would benefit Clinton.     The Capital Initiative, a 1-cent addition to the county sales tax would give Clinton a shot in the arm. Three projects of the 16 that will be before Laurens County Voters on the Nov. 3, 2020 ballot will be inside the Clinton city limits....
