  • HINZMAN OK AT QB
    Making the transition from tailback to quarterback has not been that difficult for Caleb Hinzman.
    His older brother, Noah, made the same transition.
    Both can run. But when the necessity is there to pass the football, they do that as well.

    There is a certain irony about today. The whole weekend, actually.
    Today is Labor Day, a day set aside to recognize the achievements -- economic and social -- of our country’s workers.
    A brief history of the holiday on the U.S. Department of Labor’s website tells us the day was created by the labor movement in America. Eventually, state governments picked up the banner, passing ordinances in the 1880s to recognize the day. That led to a more organized movement to get state legislation passed in recognition of laborers’ achievements, and in February 1887, Oregon was the first state to pass a law recognizing Labor Day.

    Carolina! Clemson!
    Clemson! Carolina!

    Some of you have probably already geared up, ready to make your attack and tell us just how biased we are. At no other time of year, not even the political season, do we hear claims the likes of which we hear during football season. In fact, the claims about our bias make me think the crew at MSNBC, CNN, CBS and FOX have it easy.
    Granted, there are quite a few folks in the office who have garnet and black running through their veins, but that stands to reason. Clemson is not known for spitting out too many journalists anymore than Carolina is known for spitting out agriculturists and engineers -- although, both probably have their fair share of students who have extensively studied one form of agriculture, cannabis. Still, the truth is the newspaper has a healthy crop of Clemson fans.

    There is more afoot than an exchange of pleasantries and jovial back-patting between the leadership of Greenwood city and county. That was evident, but was made more clearly evident during last week’s State of the City and County address hosted by the Greenwood Chamber. And it is more than just encouraging. It is to be lauded, it is to be nurtured.
    We are not suggesting the city and county have been sworn enemies; there is no likening their relationship to that of Israel and Palestine, for example. But the truth is the city and county did, in years past, operate as though they shared no borders and no common purpose. The truth also is that there was a distinct and noticeable shift from that position. Truly, this is a good time for Greenwood as a whole.
