Kelly -- Birthdays, horror, & COVID oh my!



Last Wednesday, October 6, I turned 28. Months in advance I requested to take the day off so my sister and I could do something fun to celebrate. But things don’t always go the way we planned them…

This little thing called COVID – maybe you’ve heard of it – decided to wreak havoc on my sister’s house. For the record, everyone is on the mend, slowly but surely.

Publisher: Celebrating 25 years in newspapers

By Brian Whitmore
In October 1996, Graham Williams — a mentor to me —hired me as a general assignment reporter for the now defunct Union Daily Times (Union, S.C.).

Now I celebrate my 25th anniversary as publisher of The Clinton Chronicle.
