Letter: Stop treating students like criminals

Posted by | March 26, 2018 1:53 pm

Last week, while in Manning, I was shocked to see that Clarendon County School District 2 is still using the Sheriff’s Department headquarters as a school bus stop (for over a decade now)!

Our students who attend the alternative school aren’t criminals! If they were, they would be expelled or arrested and sent to the Department of Juvenile Justice.… Read the rest

One of my best friends is going to be 67 years old in a month. We’ve been friends for almost 40 years. Throughout those years we’ve given and received business advice to each other. Some of it was good and some maybe not so good. It has been helpful to have someone to discuss business decisions with. Decisions don’t have to be big either. Do you think I should go to the party? It is just a help for a little advice or just a nudge toward doing something. The other day we were talking about doing something. It wasn’t… Read the rest
