  By Jack “Miles” Ventimiglia For National Newspaper Week October 6 - 12, 2019   Freedom of the press, of speech, of religion, of assembly and to petition the government are woven, like stars in the flag, into the fabric of the First Amendment. The blood of patriots is the seed of the Republic. The...
  EDITORIAL 10-2-19   Guest Editorial   The Joy of Politics        By Lee H. Hamilton   You’re probably chuckling already. Seriously? “The joy of politics”? That was pretty much the reaction I got the other day when, in the middle of a conversation about how confrontational, adversarial, and...
  I stood at my senior seminar in front of my liberal, progressive professors and presented my research on liberal bias in mainstream media. That was in 1995 and somehow I passed and received a degree in communications from USC Upstate. A conservative journalist entered a field that slants to the...
  School is generally regarded as preparation for college, career, and life. Academic classes provide the foundation and framework in the 3 R’s (Reading, [w]Riting, and [a]rithmetic); career and technology classes provide training and awareness of career options; and the overall school experience...

In all the hustle-bustle, take just a moment to reflect on what you can do to make Laurens County a caring community. One thing you can do has already passed, but...
  This is what “animal abuse” looks like! What would make someone take it upon themselves to put two small, pitiful, under-nourished puppies in our fenced-in backyard without asking or telling us about their intentions? It would have been bad enough to put two healthy puppies in our fence, but...
  EDITORIAL: Consider, The United Way    Your continued support of United Way of Laurens County truly is a shining example of a community helping itself. The member agencies, UW board members, staff and friends, and donor businesses celebrated that helpfulness Aug. 29 at Presbyterian College. Three...
