  This quote from Georgia O’Keefe rounds out the on-line bio of Clinton High School Visual Arts Teacher Adri Jordan on the CHS website. Jordan and her students, Sydney Raber and Kaitey Threatt, recently completed 35 days of mural painting at a Clinton church. Dedication of their mural was Oct. 27,...
  Our friend Graham Duncan has made an, as usual, great analysis of small business and social media (The Chronicle, Nov. 6). I am adding a plug for traditional media. The Laurens County Chamber of Commerce has sponsored a free seminar for businesses on developing Facebook. As yet they have not made...
  One day it was there. The next, it wasn’t. Closure of the food pantry in the former Christ Central building in Joanna hit the struggling community just that quickly, a caller told me recently. The SC Empowerment Centre was in the former school; then, they weren’t. Their director Allen Lawson told...
  “No basis for the generalized fear of people with a mental illness”   Study: Less than one-third of mass violence  is caused by people with serious mental illness     The next time you hear someone say, “Mental illness is causing all these mass-casualty shootings,” you can say - with authority...
  Back in my days, I have to admit it, I was a sports parent. My three played sports - baseball, basketball, volleyball and swimming. I was a sandlot football and baseball player, and rec league basketball player in my days growing up on the Isle of Palms. Never good enough to go farther, much to...
  I’m so proud of my daughter I can hardly stand it. Our third born, Mary Elizabeth MacDonald, stopped the other day to treat the wounds of a person injured in a car wreck.

  Kudos to our friends at the Greater Greenville Mental Health Center for tackling the issue of childhood mental health. A recent open house was a very successful combination of superheroes and brain-health awareness. This description is one of 8 items listed in the most recent SC MHC Newsletter:...
  Sometimes it feels like there is an all-out war on women in this country. It mirrors the atrocities committed against women all over the world. Far from being “the weaker sex,” women have proven themselves to be capable leaders, accomplished scientists and stellar athletes. Yet, we always seem to...
  I never thought that this late in life I would be, again, Band Dad. In the spirit of total honesty (always the best policy) it’s really more like Band “Uncle” since our “adopted” niece, Reese, plays keyboard in the Ware Shoals band. We just finished two grueling trips to and from Batesburg and...
  The late George Michael is spinning in his grave. The Wham-singer recorded an ‘80s anthem, “Careless Whisper,” that was PG-13 rated. Now in the ‘10s a “whisper” is R-rated, or worse. The Ware Shoals Police Department is reporting that alleged activity within an online community called "Whisper"...
