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...
  Boy, I would hate to be you. I would hate to be you if you turned down the chance to advertise in Horizon. You missed the chance to have your message presented on a worldwide stage. Our Horizon section is always great, a multiple award-winner at the state level.  This year, it’s super great....
  To better treat patients, hospitals should keep the family close   Loneliness is as hazardous to one's health as smoking a pack a day, new research suggests. Oddly enough, people in the hospital are at particular risk of becoming lonely.  Doctors, nurses and support staff may poke and prod them...
  If South Carolina Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt is really interested in assisting rural areas with economic development, he can start right outside of Clinton. He can ask Gov. Henry McMaster to read a letter from Clinton and act on its request. He can facilitate the move of the South Carolina...

  Fewer and fewer employers are offering health benefits.  In 2001, 68 percent of firms sponsored health plans. Last year, that share dropped to 53 percent.   Part of the problem is that insurance premiums have soared, pricing many employers out of the market. For businesses with fewer than 200...
  As the New Year begins, we have several congratulations to dispense. The year passed, 2018, has seen the Laurens County community lose many valuable members, and others have faced significant challenges.
