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.).
That was my first newspaper job after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in communications from USC Spartanburg in 1995.
Now I celebrate my 25th anniversary as publisher of The Clinton Chronicle.

‘Helping people heal, helps me heal” 



By Vic MacDonald, Editor

Before we get too far away from Mental Health Awareness Month, I would like to share some information out of Myrtle Beach.

Press On: The Holy Bible is truth in message and detail

By Brian Whitmore/Publisher
Is the Bible inerrant, infallible or both?
A pastor told me not long ago that he’d rather use the term infallible than inerrant when referring to the Bible. I didn’t think much about it at the time; after all, don’t those words mean the same thing? Well, yes and no.

VIC: Human Trafficking Statistics


Anyone who is concerned about the on-going human trafficking horror in this nation should be aware of a new report about the subject.

Upstate South Carolina is an area that should be concerned because we live on the I-85 Corridor. Atlanta is listed as one of the nation’s worst human trafficking cities, by attorneys of the Neal Davis Law Firm — a respected criminal defense law firm based in the Houston area.

Press On: I choose peace

By Brian Whitmore
“If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”
– Romans 12:18
I like peace. I hate strife.
Sometimes Christians are put in situations where they must make a stand. This usually causes conflict.
A Christian should get no joy from conflict. Stirring the pot is not the path to righteousness. Peace should always be our goal.
