An Invitation (our view).           OK, so, now it’s our turn. Coming off a very successful Squealin’ on the Square the first weekend of October in Laurens, our area gets to show off again this weekend with Rhythm on the Rails in Clinton. The festival celebrates Clinton’s historic and current role...
OUR VIEW: Anniversaries.     First off let us say, Squealin’ on the Square was great. Not one complaint did we hear - and that’s not easy, managing that amount of people in a confined space. Activities were everywhere, and the Laurens Rotary Club was like a carnival barker, interesting people in...
View from the Corner Office.     We unloaded the U-Haul trailer on a Monday morning. It was packed to the gills with boxes filled with books. There were a few pieces of office furniture, a couple lamps, some art to hang on the walls, a few do-dads to set about. The Pastor’s office was the big one...
Birthdays, horror, & COVID oh my!     Last Wednesday, October 6, I turned 28. Months in advance I requested to take the day off so my sister and I could do something fun to celebrate. But things don’t always go the way we planned them… This little thing called COVID – maybe you’ve heard of it...
Journalism.     You’ve got to loved a retired journalist. Ernie Segars, who did such great work at The Clinton Chronicle, then retired as Laurens County Administrator, and now writes an occasional column for The Laurens County Advertiser, comes to mind. Segars, in retirement, is chairman of a local...
LETTER: The problem is the continuing disturbance by outdoor partying at Presbyterian College.         The editor, This might be a second futile attempt to find someone interested in correcting a situation that is out of hand. I tried to address this with City Counsel, but nothing has changed.  ...
EDITORIAL: The Human Factor.   Laurens County will have $13 Million to spend from the federal COVID-19 relief fund. A Committee-of-the-Whole of the Laurens County Council will meet to decide how the money is to be allocated. At the State level, some of this money has been proposed for the widening...
  I remember sitting at a gas station here recently and I saw a man asking for money as people left the store. I sat in my car for a while and watched because I was intrigued as to how many people would just give him money.  After about the third person gave him money, he quietly counted it and...
Something to Talk About   The inscription on Lady Liberty, standing in New York Harbor reads, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me: I lift my lamp beside the golden...
OUR VIEW: City Manager.       Just as we did when Thomas Higgs became the Laurens County Administrator, we are offering unsolicited advice to Rebecca Vance as she becomes the Interim City Manager for the City of Clinton. People managing is the same, of course, but there are different challenges in...
