Second-tier events help Performing Arts Series

The Performing Arts Series has been a popular event at the University of South Carolina Lancaster’s Bundy Auditorium.
Few can find little to complain about in the events, which have featured quality entertainment here sponsored by See Lancaster, SC, which oversees the PAS.
“The complaint I hear almost daily is the cost of tickets,” said Jimola Wade, who manages the Performing Arts Series. “Our community has spoken and I want them to know that I’m listening. I can’t change things overnight, but I’m working hard at it.”

Caregivers deserve special recognition

Caregivers play a special role in the lives of the ones they tend to each day.
Their tasks and challenges are great, sometimes outweighing the needed thanks.
That’s why those dedicated folks are special.
Recently a Lancaster caregiver, Karen Hoffman, was honored for her work as a caring caregiver.
Hoffman was presented the local Family Caregiver of the Year Award, an annual honor given by Homewatch Caregivers, which is an international provider of full-service home care, and co-sponsored by the National Family Caregivers Association.

Don’t forget lessons of 9/11

Ten years and the images are still as vivid as if it was only 10 minutes ago. The horrific sight of smoke billowing from the World Trade Center after terrorist-piloted suicide planes slammed into the buildings.
Then there was the damage at the seemingly impregnable Pentagon and the plane crash in the Pennsylvania field, which, if not for some civilian heroes, might have struck the U.S. Capitol and killed key national leaders.

Labor Day celebrates workers

For most of us, Monday will be a day off. It’s Labor Day, a federal holiday that celebrates the contributions of America’s 153.2 million workers. Schools will be closed, as will government offices, banks and many other businesses.

Labor Day’s roots extend back to Sept. 5, 1882, when American labor leader Peter J. McGuire organized the first parade of about 10,000 workers in New York City. The Carpenters and Joiners Union secretary was inspired after seeing a labor festival in Canada.

Don't forget about the residents of Edenmoor

The troubled Edenmoor development in Indian Land has been in the news regularly for the last few months. 

Many of the stories have been long and complicated because the issues surrounding the stalled development are complex, involving the county’s Forfeited Land Commission, developers, financiers, tax and bond sales and pending contracts. And much of what has taken place has been behind closed doors, making it even more difficult to make sense of what’s going on.

Cauthen served his community

Dennis Cauthen was trying to help fellow firefighter Randy White find the right word. White was describing how it felt for the Elgin Volunteer Fire Department to be one of several fire departments trying to save the blazing historic Lancaster County Courthouse that early Aug. 4 morning in 2008.
“Honored,” said Cauthen, fire chief. “We’re honored to have helped the city (of Lancaster) and other departments save the courthouse.”

Faris left her mark on Indian Land High

The start of the 2011-12 school term will feature David Shamble in the principal’s office at Indian Land High School. Shamble, a former assistant principal since 2007, is replacing Kathy Faris.

Faris, the IL principal for the last five years, resigned her post in mid-July, about a month before the start of the upcoming school term.

Shamble, who considers Faris his mentor,  will no doubt continue many of the initiatives she started. But he will also have his own  agenda for the Class AA high school.
