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...
  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. It was on Hwy 76 near Metal Masters, and she was the first first-responder on the scene. I am getting this word second-hand,...
