Editorial

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...
Our website - MyClintonNews.com - is heavy on the left. No, not the political left. The left side of the navigation bar has Home, Breaking News and Sports - three core functions of any newspaper worth anything. Home is the articles in feature display.

  EDITORIAL: Rural SC - we’re bouncing back   We think the City of Clinton should immediately re-invest the money coming in from the sale of the spec building at the Commerce 26 site in another spec building. Immediately - as in, right away. An announcement this week details the sale of the current...
EDITORIAL - We applaud the five members of the District 56 Board of Trustees who, last Wednesday night, made the decision to devote $1.4 million of public money to the upgrading of Wilder Stadium. Even as private funds were being solicited for a grand plan to bring Wilder Stadium into the 20th...
Editorial - Clinton residents and people charged every day with making the city a better place in which to live and work all bemoan the fact that young professionals and those in management positions here don’t live here. Virtually none of the professors of the PC School of Pharmacy live in Laurens...
  Clinton High School has a history of quality – some would say outstanding -- coaching in all sports. When you think of Red Devil coaches, the name Keith Richardson immediately comes to mind with 200+ wins and six state championships. We would submit and advance the argument that Clovis Simmons’...
