  The List Of Disgrace: South Carolina is 5th, and no longer 1st in the disgrace list of states. Some will see this as progress, and will pat themselves on the back for passing new laws. We are not among those. The List Of Disgrace is now topped by Alaska. Shame. Shame, on those people for allowing...
  Should a person be disqualified from serving as city manager because he or she is “from here”? That is exactly what the Clinton City Council heard Sept. 18 from a city employee of 37 years experience. We are pretty sure that is illegal employment discrimination. “Place” discrimination is not far...
  It is a huge understatement to say about Clinton and Hurricane Irma, “We dodged a bullet.” Except for an unfortunate, house-wrecking tree-crash on Calvert Avenue, there was no major damage to the city as Irma transitioned from a hurricane to a tropical storm. Our brave utility crews patched our...

The City of Clinton clearly dodged a bullet recently when a car - traveling like a bullet - came the wrong way down Musgrove Street and came to rest near the railroad tracks. A slight miscalculation to the right, and we would have lost The Depot. Established by the late Lynn Cooper, The Depot is a...
Laurens County Council faces what could be its most important meeting ever this Tuesday. It needs to pass a budget - there’s no guarantee that’s going to happen - and it needs to mend some fences. The Aug. 22 meeting will be normal in terms of time and place - 5:30 p.m. in the council chambers of...
  It won’t happen, but wouldn’t it be great if Laurens County life could come to an absolute halt about 2 p.m. on Monday, August 21. That’s the day we lose the sun. Lose it for 2 minutes and 30 seconds anyway. It’s The Great American Eclipse. For people the age of this newspaper’s editor, it is a...
