KELLY: Suggestions from a bookworm.

By Kelly Duncan

In last month’s column, I scratched the surface on some of my favorite books growing up. I figured for this month, what better way to follow that up than by sharing some of my favorite books I’ve read as an adult? Some of my favorites are classics that you might have read in high school, while others are more recent releases that I’ve read. 

VIC’s View: We don’t care how you did it in Michigan.

So here’s what not to do - use Covid money to give yourself a Bonus.

A Michigan county council did just that - now they are giving it back. Laurens County has $6 million of its $13 million of COVID-19 local relief money sitting in the bank. The council is figuring out what to do with it - here’s a “not-to” suggestion.

Press On: The Holy Bible is truth in message and detail

By Brian Whitmore/Publisher
 
Is the Bible inerrant, infallible or both?
 
A pastor told me not long ago that he’d rather use the term infallible than inerrant when referring to the Bible. I didn’t think much about it at the time; after all, don’t those words mean the same thing? Well, yes and no.
 
Inerrant means there are no errors in the Bible.
 
Infallible means there can be no errors in the Bible.
 
Same, right?
 

VIC: Maybe, The Reason?

We are all struggling to make sense of why Presbyterian College would discontinue the contract of football head coach Tommy Spangler. Maybe it’s as simple as this, from the conservative publication “National Review:”

VIC: Human Trafficking Statistics

 

Anyone who is concerned about the on-going human trafficking horror in this nation should be aware of a new report about the subject.

Upstate South Carolina is an area that should be concerned because we live on the I-85 Corridor. Atlanta is listed as one of the nation’s worst human trafficking cities, by attorneys of the Neal Davis Law Firm — a respected criminal defense law firm based in the Houston area.

Press On: I choose peace

By Brian Whitmore
 
“If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”
– Romans 12:18
 
I like peace. I hate strife.
 
Sometimes Christians are put in situations where they must make a stand. This usually causes conflict.
 
A Christian should get no joy from conflict. Stirring the pot is not the path to righteousness. Peace should always be our goal.
 

Publisher: Driving in Laurens County, not for the faint of heart

By Brian Whitmore/Publisher
 
Many people in Laurens County can’t drive.
I know this comes as a shock.
 
We have a lot of people on Laurens County roads. The population of the county is 67,493 (2019). The majority of those drive and that’s a lot of people on an infrastructure of roads that, well, could have been designed better.
 
The majority of my commute is on a road suited for one and a half cars, not two. You have to slow down when you meet oncoming traffic.
