The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control would do well to heed the request of the Laurens County Legislative Delegation. We are sure the agency does not need a reminder, but they are among the people who control the purse strings. Delegates have asked DHEC officials to...
Vic's View: Big Foot goes lake-home shopping.       Today’s commentary is not original with me. It comes via Otis Driftwood on Facebook: Big Foot is shopping for a Lake Greenwood house. Otis and two buddies were trying out the fishing - shark fishing, apparently, from another post - and...
OUR VIEW, Good Job, Laurens.     Our County Seat, the City of Laurens, deserves a pat on the back for staging a successful Independence Weekend celebration on July 3. We also were in proximity to July 2 Lights on the Lake and July 3 Town of Ware Shoals fireworks and music festivities to celebrate...
Russ Dean: “You are loved. You are forgiven. So be at peace.”       When I started typing these words, I was sitting on the deck of my parents’ house at Lake Greenwood. They bought an 800-square-foot block cabin in 1977. My dad was a pastor with a parsonage, and my parents were interested in an...
OUR VIEW: This is getting embarrassing.       We do not pretend to know why people starve and mistreat animals. We don’t live in that world - we don’t want to live in that world. We thank God that there are law enforcement officers and humane treatment people who do live in that world....

Vic's View -- No, not “committed” - language matters.     The subject for today - again, not “the former guy” - is the taking of one’s own life. This is a portion of a guest writer article by Julia Park Tracey, appearing in the Huffington Post: “Our 21-year-old son died by suicide in 2019, a fact I...
As the elected officers of the South Carolina Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (SCAAP), we are writing to express our concerns for children as the pandemic continues.  Representing over 750 pediatricians statewide, we stand united with our AAP colleagues (over 67,000) nationally to...
CHARLESTON – Apparently all that matters is getting reelected, at any cost including loss of life. That is the message the SC Senate is sending now with the advancing of HB 3094, Open Carry with Permit. “In bypassing regular order, the Senate is refusing to acknowledge and address the dangers...
