Opinion: The Annual American Whitewash.         These days is it a mistake to bring up the storied practices of racism in the United States. The identification and labeling of the plain view prejudice and nefarious dog whistles calling back to histories of white privilege nostalgia are frequently...
No one is more happy to put 2021 in the past than me.        It was quite possibly the hardest and worst year for my family and I. And although my siblings and I are all grown adults, we’ve each had to do a little extra growing up in 2021. We’ve continued to navigate the unexpected loss of our Mama...
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...
  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...

Last Wednesday, October 6, I turned 28. Months in advance I requested to take the day off so my sister and I could do something fun to celebrate. But things don’t always go the way we planned them… This little thing called COVID – maybe you’ve heard of it – decided to wreak havoc on my sister’s...
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...
When the Godly Get the Blues.       Good and godly people become depressed. Sadly, the Christian community does not always have a box for it. Instead, we subtly think that if someone follows Christ, every day with Jesus should be sweeter than the day before.For years I have changed one line in the...
Vaccines; Yay or Nay.    Polio and Smallpox were eradicated through vaccines. I am sure other diseases have been either eliminated or reduced in severity due to modern medicines, measles, mumps and rubella to name a few. The question I propose is this: Will the Covid virus be eradicated by this...
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...
