  I don’t know about you, but I refuse to be caught up in the negativity that seems to be prevalent in the news — on television, in the newspapers, Facebook, Twitter, or any other media format. So today, I’m devoting my column to positive things that are happening right here in Clinton, South...
  For as many years as I can remember there has been one building that has stood out in our city. It stood out not because of its architecture or its beauty or the business which operated from this particular building. It stood out because of the condition of the building.  The roof had collapsed...
  The two questions I get asked most about are the South Broad Street water and sewer rehabilitation project and the removal of dilapidated and uninhabitable buildings from our city. For the past several years, the city has been focused on replacing water and sewer lines that have just outlived...
  At the March council meeting, our city manager, Mr. Bill Ed Cannon, asked council to consider not building a new unmanned welcome center at the intersection of Highway 76 and Broad Street. For those of you who may not be aware of this location, this would be in the parking lot of Industrial...
