VIC: Tired of it? That’s when it gets you.

More info on our WEB - - on the coronavirus --  the file is 33 pages now.


The greatest challenge this nation faces now, after the election, is getting rid of the coronavirus. Our economy is re-opened, but every savvy businessperson knows, a business is no good if everybody’s sick.

Too sick to work.

Too sick to buy. 

Publisher: I know who holds the future and my hand

By Brian Whitmore/Publisher
Many things about tomorrow
I don't seem to understand
But I know who holds tomorrow
And I know who holds my hand
- Ira Stanphill
This morning you may know the results of the election. This column was written before the election.
So how do you write an election day column without knowing the results?

VIC'S VIEW: The Law and Order FBI, and Justice

NOW THAT’S MORE LIKE IT - The FBI and the United States Department of Justice, taking down right-wing extremists.

When federal forces from the Department of Homeland Security arrived in Portland to defend a federal courthouse there, I said their time could be better spent infiltrating the left-wing and right-wing extremists who nearly have created a racial conflict in the United States.

Publisher: Presidential debate — embrace the madness

“Are you not entertained.”
That’s one of my favorite quotes from the movie “Gladiator.”
The first presidential debate could have taken place at the Roman Colosseum.
Chris Wallace the moderator was like a Roman Emperor giving a thumbs up or thumbs down, but ultimately having no power to stop the carnage.
President Donald J. Trump and challenger Joe Biden were the gladiators.
And we the people couldn’t look away.
And yes, I was entertained.

Publisher: Fast-forwarding through life

By Brian Whitmore/Publisher
The other week, I received an award at a virtual awards ceremony.
The award was mailed. I watched the South Carolina Press Association ceremony online.
Most years, I get to go to Greenville, Columbia or Charleston and enjoy a fancy chicken meal, while dining with colleagues. We sit through a lengthy awards presentation, offering loud applause when our newspaper’s name comes up.

Publisher: Nellie Ann Whitmore — a life well lived

By Brian Whitmore/Publisher
Nellie Ann Faulkner Whitmore, 83, passed away while she was sleeping, discovered by the morning shift at NHC Laurens on Sept. 21. For eight years she struggled with dementia and debilitating arthritis that led to immobility.
She was and is my Mama.
They say that most people get their name in the paper twice, when they are born and when they die. But Mama got her name in the paper a few more times, because her son was a journalist.

Publisher: Jesus is bigger than our politics

By Brian Whitmore/Publisher
He controls the course of world events; he removes kings and sets up other kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars. – Daniel 2:21
I hate it when politicians use the Bible to divide.
I hate it when Christian leaders use politics to divide.
Jesus Christ sacrificed himself on the cross and defeated death by rising from the grave, so we ALL can become ONE in Him.

Publisher: Don’t force opinions – live and let live

By Brian Whitmore/Publisher
Live and let live.
That’s what my father taught me.
Tolerate others opinions, so they will tolerate your own.
But the world is increasingly more divided with each day.
I myself just want to be left alone. I believe most people want to be left alone.
Yet, some want to control others. They want to stir the pot. They are always negative — narcissists that get their kicks from aggravating others.
