EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is a reply to a letter posted about two roads in Clarendon County allegedly being impassable.
I live on a connecting road, Bream Avenue. It is just as bad.
I have signed two petitions to try and get the county to address the issue. Both were ignored. I have called and talked to the person in charge, (and) I was told that these streets are not on the list of county roads to be paved in the “foreseeable future.”
When the county does come out, all they do is scrape the road to try and level… Read the rest

I think their behavior is totally disrespectful and self-centered.
If they want to protest, they should do it on their own time. I don’t know of any businesses that would put up with employees acting this way during “company time.”
The NFL regulations clearly ban this sort of behavior, yet they are condoning it and encouraging it.
Plenty of players have tried to use their time in a game to bring attention to causes and have been fined for it.
The NFL is not behaving with consistency, and that in itself is unfair. Yet, that’s what these players say they… Read the rest

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following ran this summer in The Manning Times’ Rugged magazine.
Barry Hatfield is entering his eighth year as a coach and teacher at Laurence Manning Academy.
He just completed his fourth year as head coach of the varsity Swampcats baseball team by taking his players to their second State Championship title in two years.
“It’s challenging to go back-to-back,” said Athletic Director Robbie Briggs. “When you’re the defending champion, there’s a target on your back. Everyone wants to unseat the reigning State Champs.”
Hatfield wasn’t content to let his players – many of whom returned from the… Read the rest

Those darn efficiency experts will tell you that you can only do one job at a time. It makes a lot of sense: Your brain can only comprehend so much at one time. You’ve heard all the advice about focusing on the most important job first for maximum results.
It is too bad that we don’t believe it.
Saturdays this time of year seem to have overloaded our brains and our wallets, too. College football will strain our mental and financial resources.

If you’ve gotten an email from Netflix lately you might not want to click that link.
There’s a new phishing scam circling the web, and it’s targeting Netflix users. Scammers are targeting Netflix customers in an effort to get into people’s bank accounts.
Netflix users say they’ve been getting e-mails designed to look like they’ve been coming directly from the streaming service’s customer service. The email informs recipients their accounts have been disabled and their payment details need to be updated. It either asks for the information to be sent in an email or to click a link and “login”… Read the rest
