Not to worry, the members of the Clinton City Council are still on the council. They haven’t left town, following their controversial vote last week to allow beer sales at city-sanctioned festivals.
Three weeks ago, I wrote a column for this space in which I decried the state of soccer facilities for the Clinton High School soccer team. I mentioned the shoddy field conditions and the fact that balls kicked out of bounds often had to be retrieved from the woods.
I had a nice color picture of a Chapman soccer player trying to get a ball from among the trees.
Just so we are absolutely clear, I am not going to vote for anyone for governor who calls our South Carolina public schools “failed.” The latest to perpetuate that lie is Republican Catherine Templeton.
I consider Feb. 22, 2012, my starting day at The Clinton Chronicle. That’s the first issue to which I contributed articles. I can always tell when my anniversary is rolling around by Horizons, the first project that Larry Franklin had me working on even while I was still on board in Manning.
After school each day, my daughter Lydia, 5, comes to The Clinton Chronicle. She has her own office and a laptop from home. She watches cartoons and plays games on the Nick Junior and Disney Junior websites.
