  • 1964 the Tribute rocks the house @ USCL

    Nothing really changes the taste of grits, said Mark Benson as “John Lennon” during the 1964 the Tribute concert inside a raucous Bundy Auditorium at the University of South Carolina at Lancaster.
    Nothing really changes the Beatles, either, as the tribute band proved while rocking the house Saturday.

    It is no revelation that the fastest-growing area in Lancaster County is just north of Waxhaw Creek, what is known as the Panhandle. The proliferation of new housing developments, businesses and traffic is enough evidence. However, that fact was confirmed when the 2010 Census figures were released recently.

    The U.S. Census Bureau showed that Lancaster County was the fifth fastest-growing county in South Carolina. According to census data, Lancaster County’s official population is now 76,652, a jump from the 2000 population estimate of 61,351.
