  OUR VIEW: Pay a Rebate.   The City of Clinton is going to receive a windfall of between $1.8 million and $1.9 million from its electrical provider. We know this because Laurens is going to get it, too. The Laurens CPW board (Commission of Public Works) talked about it May 13. The same provider...
  Kudos to Presbyterian College for another very successful Commencement. Hundreds of visitors experienced Clinton on May 10-11 - we hope they were enticed to return, like May 17-18 for Rhythm on the Rails. The schedule for Commencement Friday was action-packed, and we were able to make it to most...
  EDITORIAL: Bring Back the Derby   Now that Presbyterian College is going to hire a new athletics director, it’s time to have serious discussions about the Blue Hose playing football against the Newberry College Wolves. This coming season would have been ideal - Newberry is at North Greenville...
  EDITORIAL: Pray for us, we need it   Kudos to Pastor Kenny Moore and the congregation of Davidson Street Baptist Church for a fine National Day of Prayer May 2 observance. Moving the observance to evening perhaps gave some people a better chance to attend (it used to be a City of Clinton, mid-day...
  The scariest thing about the May 1 #SCforEd March on Columbia is the mobilization of South Carolina teachers. Lawmakers are complaining about the temerity of leaving the plantation to participate in a MLK-style march for attention. It’s right there in the Bill of Rights - the redress of...
Nothing is more infuriating to us than people who prey on seniors. People who try to get something, basically, for nothing. Oh sure, it takes time to sit on the phone and scam people, and as they say time is money - but, really, get a real job! This is an advisory from the South Carolina Department...
Ask any college senior where the best jobs are, and you'll probably hear a list of coastal metropolises: New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco.  But economic development data tell a different story.  Smaller cities away from the coasts are the true hotbeds of economic activity today, thanks to their...
  What’s stopping us from dreaming?   We received an e-mail notice about an event coming to the convention center in tiny Richburg, South Carolina, recently and it just set us off on dreaming.  The event is this: Rural Strong Expo, Richburg, SC, SBA, USDA Rural Development Bring Small Business...
  Don’t Sprint, Run the Marathon if you’re going to take away this title   You’re going to have to change a lot more than venue and number of events to make us lose this title. For the 17th consecutive year, Clinton Middle School (and its predecessor Bell Street Middle School) is the South Carolina...
THE WAY WE SEE IT: Jail Deaths & Prayer In Schools   Deaths in custody should always be publicly reported, and in a timely manner. We do not have the where-with-all to make that happen, but it certainly should be a state law, mandated to everyone. Facebook would be OK. The Laurens County...
