  In the days following George H. W. Bush’s death, it was impossible to ignore the mood that settled over much of the country: a yearning for the civility, dignity and inclusiveness that the former president represented. It was a form of bipartisan nostalgia for a time when the nation seemed to...
On Friday, we saw this social media hash tag pop up: #InWebbWeTrust. All the good feelings are gone now. The up-beat-ness that we felt that day when we named a “native son” to the city’s highest profile sports position, vanished. Andrew Webb won’t be the head football coach at Clinton High School...
It started out as a labor of love. Two and a half years later, it turned into a 475-page labor and those involved dearly love it. “Discovering Laurens County, South Carolina, Volume III, Dramatic Changes, 1840-1900” hit the street in early December. Like the first two volumes, this edition is a...
In 1843, Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol, a story as real and relevant now as was when it was written. “This heartwarming story of repentance, redemption, and the transformative power of love and charity is especially poignant during the season of goodwill to all (Hudson Valley).”  I have...

  Heaven gained a couple good Georges last week. One of them was the 41st President of the United States. The other was my good friend, George Marshall. When I remember George Marshall, many things come to mind. Bucky’s BBQ. The Gamecocks. His laugh. His kindness. His sense of humor. His faith....
  If you ask for a piece of information and the people that have it say, “No,” do you get your 3 dollars back? That is my dilemma after I asked for a police video from the City of Clinton. The video in question is not covered by the state’s open records law, and just making the request carries with...
  COMMENTARY: I want to talk to my conservative friends. This nation is too divided, and we may not survive (literally) if we cannot come together. I don’t mean we have to agree. Diversity of ideas is our nation’s brilliance. The dialogue of different ideas is our strength. So, we don’t need...
