It might be a conspiracy.   I am not one for conspiracy theories. I believe COVID-19 is real, and I believe the Twin Towers actually were destroyed by jet fuel. That being said, I also believe this: There are radical factions of antifa, Black Lives Matter, the Black Panthers, Aryan Nation, the...
  While I am sympathetic to the all lives matter crowd, I just cannot find agreement there. All lives matter is a reaction to the current Black Lives Matter Movement in response to the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and others. A powerful symbol, The Noose, has reappeared in the wake of...
Vic's View: When the agitators are gone -- 101 Laurens County Coronavirus cases.     Pretty soon, the professional rioters and foreign agitators are going to go back to their countries and back under the rock from which they crawled - and we will be left with our same world. Things will get re-...
VIC'S VIEW: Looking ahead, our governor’s future.     When “this thing” is all over with, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster will be in line for a position in President Trump’s Second-Term Cabinet. Mr. McMaster has done everything the President has instructed during the COVID-19 crisis. Mr....
  This is a very difficult time for a special section.     Coming up at the end of May is our annual Veterans’ Tribute Section. That makes my deadline May 8. In this “trying times”, as all the TV ads say, I’m not really sure how I’m going to write a veterans’ section. I don’t want to interview...
  Human Kindness.     Today, I am donating my space to Connie Post and her daughter, Cadence, of Laurens, and to a special person they met.   Autism Awareness Win Today! I had to go to the Dollar Tree for some necessities today (for real) and Michael was at work and the rest of the teens asleep and...
Words on a page are chilling, but something we’ve come to expect. The numbers are just figures written side-by-side - we’ve been conditioned just to take them for granted. South Carolina’s unsafe secondary roads are going to claim lives. Add in the wicked weather we’ve been having lately, and the...
  I try not to let a lot of North Carolina stuff seep into the pages of The Clinton Chronicle. To do so would not be in keeping with our 2020 Theme - Clinton First. But I thought this was really interesting - how four counties have come together to promote a trail. You know, trails are very...
So, what does this mean, Clinton First?     We are emphasizing Clinton as our theme for this pivotal year - 2020. We, meaning our Clinton community, are poised to undertake projects; but right now we need some successes. For me, that means extending this invitation: Presbyterian College writes a...
  Mid-February it will be eight years for me here at The Clinton Chronicle. And in all that time, and in the 20 years before that I spent in Newberry, and the eight years before that I spent in Florence, and in two turns at The Index in Greenwood, I never, not even once, took a picture at a...
