  • Clearing the way

    Lancaster County Economic Development Corp.
    Site preparation has begun on the location of the future Lancaster Air-Rail Industrial Park.
    In December, Lancaster County Council and Lancaster City Council met on four separate occasions to see that a new business park be established in Lancaster County. The 101-acre park is located on S.C. 9 just east of the Chester County line.
    This park is unique in that it is located across the highway from the county airport and will be served by the Lancaster and Chester Railway. 

  • New laws delay start of tax season

    There’s been a delay to the start of the 2013 tax season. 

    Because of new federal legislation enacted Jan. 2 in response to the “fiscal cliff,” the Internal Revenue Service won’t begin processing individual income tax returns until Jan. 30. 

    In typical years, the process starts around the middle of the month. 

  • Bringing back The Patio drive-in

    Tim Moseley represents the past and the future of The Patio eatery in Lancaster. 

    Back in 1978, Moseley worked as a car hop at the popular drive-in restaurant at 1114 Great Falls Highway, on the southern end of town. It first opened in the 1940s.  

    Those were the days when business was booming. But after a few changes in ownership, the restaurant closed in 2006.

    Though the store officially opened at 6 a.m. Thursday, the franchise celebrated with its famous “First 100” promotion.

  • An alternative investment can lower your portfolio risk

    Money Talk

    C. David Tolson III

    When discussing asset allocation, most folks often think about the mixture between stocks, bonds and cash in their portfolio.  

    While this is not necessarily wrong thinking, asset allocation is more complicated than simply picking the appropriate pie-chart or Morningstar style box.

    As a financial advisor, I spend much of my time managing the risk associated with a client’s investments.
