    Anne Landires was on her way home from Walmart in Tega Cay last July when she got the phone call, a horrifying end to what had been a pleasantly routine summer day.
    On the other end of the line was her mother, Deb Omans, calling near frantic from Landires’ home in Indian Land’s Arlington neighborhood. She’d been outside with the grandkids, Tanner, 5, and Tessa, 8, as they played in the front yard.

     Residents in the Forest Hills and Partridge Hill subdivisions got their wish Tuesday night.
    Dozens of those residents packed Lancaster City Hall to voice their concerns about an annexation request that would bring 121 acres of land into the city.
    St. Katherine Properties, which owns the land, had requested a residential zoning classification of R-10, which requires 10,000 square feet per lot. That’s opposed to an R-15, which requires 15,000 square feet per lot.
