  • McClancy sues county on zoning

    McClancy Seasoning Co., whose rezoning request for an expansion project was rejected by the county council in December, has sued Lancaster County, demanding that it allow the expansion or pay to relocate the company.
    McClancy has been located at 182 Spice Road in Indian Land, just off U.S. 521, since 1984. It wants its property rezoned as light industrial so it can expand its current manufacturing plant with an 80- by 240-foot addition.

  • Senior Lifestyles: A ministry endures

    The Rev. W.C. Wallace enjoys sitting in a back porch chair in his bedroom slippers.
    But on any given Sunday, he’ll swap them for dress shoes and step behind a pulpit to talk about Jesus.
    For more than four decades, he has served congregations in the Lancaster area, as a full-time, interim or substitute preacher, a calling that he will continue to answer.
    “I guess I’ve been to three-quarters of the churches in the Moriah Baptist Association,” he said, laughing.

    Roof leaks that sprang up this past winter in the city of Lancaster’s 15th Street Center have buckled flooring on the top level, but have not damaged any equipment yet.  
    Now the city is trying to get the leaks repaired before any more damage is done.
    “Water always follows the path of least resistance,” said City Administrator Flip Hutfles. “What’s happened is that a couple of days after a rain, it comes through the insulation and then shows up in places.”

  • McCoy campaign ‘terrible nightmare’

    Calling Billy McCoy’s run for sheriff a “terrible nightmare,” a volunteer is breaking away from McCoy and campaign manager Malcolm Little, recounting a strange three weeks of being pulled into a plagiarism scandal.
