  Statement by Frank Knapp, Jr., co-chair of Businesses for Responsible Tax Reform and President & CEO of the South Carolina Small Business Chamber of Commerce, on President Trump’s comments about cutting safety-net programs to reduce the federal deficit    Washington, D.C. — The president’s...
  Sometimes a columnist has a lot on their minds and a column becomes a smorgasbord of thoughts. Taxes Are you as sick of taxes as I am? We used to say, “a penny for your thoughts.” I’m sure if government could figure out a way, they’d tax you for those thoughts. When you vote for president in...
  The editor,   Beware of increased taxes and loss of property rights. There are certain groups in Laurens County that are trying to start zoning again as part of land use planning. Land use planning can be good and necessary for development and progress. A study can indicate where to place...
  We’re not really sure how - Grace of God, we suspect - but the new trees and gazebo at Martha Dendy Park were unscathed by the Jan. 11 micro-burst. All around, especially near Friendship AME Church Cemetery, Jefferson Street and Beauregard Street, and Airport Road, older trees were snapped, power...
