Editorial

Saying Nothing, our view.         We set a dangerous precedent when we allow our law enforcement to say nothing. That was the case with the unfortunate death of a local woman, Kalah Shannon Gary, at the hands of the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office. Its statement about the shooting death for which...
Our View -- Needed at Presbyterian: A law enforcement probe.       We believe the City of Clinton Police Department should request a State Law Enforcement Division investigation into what happened at Bailey Memorial Stadium on Friday, February 11. The investigation should start with statement(s)...
A STORY OF FAITH.               “Yes, Virginia”     Eight-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon wrote a letter to the editor of New York’s Sun, and the quick response was printed as an unsigned editorial Sept. 21, 1897. The work of veteran newsman Francis Pharcellus Church has since become history’s most...
PC’s Embarrassment.         Just when Presbyterian College was basking in the positive press of inaugurating a young and vibrant president, Kevin Kelley had to come along. The Football Head Coach quit Saturday morning, telling people by Twitter that his team had a great offense and he appreciated...
  OUR VIEW: Come to the Events.       We certainly encourage everyone to come out and participate in Christmas activities in and around our communities this week - and in the coming weeks. Keep on the lookout for activities in your child’s schools and attend if and when you can. We hope employers...
Our View: A Modest Request.           We respectfully ask that the Clinton City Council release a set of goals. These were discussed Oct. 18 in yet another called session of the council, designed as a work session on goals setting. A representative of the SC Municipal Association wrote them on...
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...
