    VIC'S VIEW: Who has to die for us to care?     The rate of black deaths from the COVID-19 - Coronavirus is at genocide levels.   I read that 80 PERCENT of the deaths in Georgia are African-Americans. In South Carolina, some of the hardest hit smaller counties have substantial African-American...
Someone -- Please.; 2,232 cases - 48 deaths, DHEC estimates there will be 14 possible cases in Clinton (the governor has issued a new order -- attached).     Someone, please, pass this along to Governor Henry McMaster. People do not have to be showing symptoms to pass along the Coronavirus. The...
The Second Amendment Resolution.   I don’t own a gun. My wife owns guns - has for many years. These are safely secured in an undisclosed location in our home. This was done before our extended family brought their infants and toddlers into our home, but, now, it is even more imperative than before...
  Having turned 66 on Sunday, I am mindful of seeing some of my favorite rock artists in concert before they - uh - die. I’m mindful because of the deaths last month of Eddie Money at age 70 (The Money Man - “Take Me Home Tonight”) and Ric Ocasek at age 75 (The Cars - “You Might Think I’m Crazy”)....
  I have taken some criticism here for a defense of trees - cutting trees for profit, and expressing concern about companies that process trees. Truth is, because of a personal experience, I am skittish whenever I see a logging truck.  Regardless of our positions related to trees-for-profit, we all...
  VIC's View: Wasting Away - that’s somebody else   Against my better judgment I did not work the evening of April 25 and the daytime of April 26. It was not something I had planned, and when I was told I was going to miss work that Thursday night, I was a little annoyed. My faithful, but sometimes...
  I was privileged to see last Wednesday Elton John’s farewell tour performance in Columbia. Despite the mid-week show and getting home in the wee hours of Thursday (people our age are just too old for that) the Colonial was packed. For a guy over 70 (!). Same held true for last month’s Fleetwood...
  Alas, it’s 43 years too late for me. Me, a high school graduate from Mt. Pleasant, SC, who went to college without a clue as to a work future. I remember like it was yesterday, walking from Brokaw to Carol Courts, to see if there was any room for me on The Indian staff. The first article I typed...
  I cover this town. I’m interested in things that happen in Laurens, sure. I cover the Laurens County Council because, supposedly, it’s for all the county. Although, the county hasn’t helped us in Clinton hardly at all. We have spec buildings — they’re ours. We have a rec complex coming — it’s...
  It’s good to see that an independent commission is drawing lines for redistricting state house and senate seats in South Carolina. This is real election reform, as opposed to the “reform” of letting people vote by showing their driver’s license. What’s the point of having a voter registration...
