  • Local resident boycotts IL gas stations

    Indian Land residents are paying up to 17 cents more per gallon for gas than folks in Lancaster, Fort Mill (Valero charges $2.44), Rock Hill and even Tega Cay.

    When you ask the business owners at the S.C. 160/U.S. 521 and Marvin Road and Doby’s Bridge intersections why, they say to attract North Carolina customers.

    They don’t reduce prices to equal the other South Carolina communities. They only want to entice the North Carolina folks for profits while fleecing local residents. I would surmise that many of the South Carolina residents do not even know it.

  • P-31 offense paces wins

    After scoring one run in a 9-1 road loss to Pineville on Monday, Lancaster Post 31 senior team coach Tyler Anderson said he knew he had to make a switch to ignite the offense.

    Anderson has opted for live batting practice instead of the team taking its cuts in the batting cage.

    The result was 34 runs and a pair of wins in League V play over two nights.

    Lancaster clubbed Chester Post 27 18-6 on Wednesday night after drubbing Clover Post 38, 16-11 on Tuesday at Eggleton Field.

    Only two golfers advanced from the Settindown Creek Golf Club field to play the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, Cal., June 17-20.
