  I learned from my parents most of the stuff that is important in life. They in turn learned that from their parents.         That’s how it works when you’ve got good parents. Among lots of wisdom they taught me, if I heard it once, I heard it a thousand times as I was growing up: “Tithe ten...
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...
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...
View from the Corner Office.     We unloaded the U-Haul trailer on a Monday morning. It was packed to the gills with boxes filled with books. There were a few pieces of office furniture, a couple lamps, some art to hang on the walls, a few do-dads to set about. The Pastor’s office was the big one...
Birthdays, horror, & COVID oh my!     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...
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...
