  • Democratic Party inclusive for more than 40 years

    In his letter to the editor, Charles Bundy compared and contrasted the openness of the S.C. Republican Party toward African-Americans to the openness of the S.C. Democratic Party to this same group.

    I must respond to that letter because from my experience there is nothing to contrast and compare.

  • Lady Bruins notch tennis, volleyball wins

    The Lancaster Lady Bruins tennis team defeated Fort Mill 5-1 Thursday afternoon at Fort Mill High.

    The LHS girls continue to win the close matches and are showing strong finishing touches in difficult final sets.

    Lindsey Hegler won the first singles, 6-0, 6-2 completely dominating FM’s No. 1 player.

    Sara Hicks won the second singles, 7-6, 7-6 defeating a very experienced senior in a close match.

    Morgan Gardner won the third singles, 7-5, 6-4, winning in convincing manner the last two games to capture the final set.

  • Laborers driving force behind economy

    Tomorrow is Labor Day. For many workers (those lucky enough to have jobs), it’s a holiday. But not so much for those who provide law enforcement and emergency medical services.

    Schools and government offices are also closed. It’s summer’s last hurrah. The extended weekend means cookouts, picnics and last-minute getaways.

  • Wright makes world more beautiful

    Take a ride down Meeting Street. Drive slowly as you approach Market Street. Look right at the back and side yard of the house on that corner. I don’t know who lives there, but I have taken notice of the yard in my times passing. It brightens my day.

    I am assuming a gentleman lives there as he is the only one I have seen outside. He has taken an unnoticed spot and turned it into an interesting lovely garden that shows creativity and imagination.

  • Tri-County Coaches honor football stars

    The Tri-County Football Coaches Association honored a host of athletes for their play to open the 2010 high school football season.

    Winners for week two in Division 1 are South Pointe’s Tay Hicklin (offensive player), J.D. Clowney (defensive player) and James Jackson (special teams). Other winners are Chad Burris (Northwestern, offensive lineman of the week), and Rock Hill’s Tre McCullough, offensive lineman of the week. Mitchell Jeter of Rock Hill won defensive lineman of the week.

  • Vols charge, clip Devils

    Andrew Jackson, on an emotional night, rallied from an 18-14 halftime deficit with determination and stout defense to defeat Great Falls, 35-18 at Volunteer Stadium on Friday night.

    The win marked the first victory for AJ interim coach David Moore, who took over late last spring.

    The win also came on the day Dr. Peter Barry, husband of AJ principal Mary Barry, died. Barry was a Lancaster County school board member and a history instructor at USCL.

  • Powerful Cyclones dash Bruins' hopes

     The weather word in the last week has centered on Atlantic Ocean hurricanes, but for the Lancaster Bruins a Piedmont Cyclone put a hurting on LHS on Friday night.

    The unbeaten Chester Cyclones, the No. 5 team in Class AAA, were just too strong for the 1-1 Bruins, who dropped a 49-25 loss at CHS.

    The Cycs’ pivotal sequence came on a lightning-quick touchdown to close the first half and a scoring drive to open the second half.

  • Candidate seeks to revamp City Council's role

    My name is Derek Smith and I am running for City Council District 5. Many of you do not know me, so I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce myself. I was born and raised in Lancaster. I graduated from Lancaster High School and also graduated from the University of South Carolina at Lancaster. Living in the area for all this time has given me a unique opportunity to see and learn our community and also recognize the problems I want to address as a council member.

  • What has Congressman does for us lately?

    I just read with great interest how a few people think that someone who has been in Congress for 27 years should go back.

    If  John Spratt hasn’t accomplished his goals by now, it is time to retire.

    I worked for 18 years for a U.S. congressman in Pennsylvania and we scheduled monthly town meetings in all parts of our district.

  • Newspaper should give fair and balanced view

    I wholeheartedly agree with The Lancaster News staff when they state that voters must educate themselves about the candidates running for the mayor’s race.

    In doing so, I caution readers not to use the newspaper’s Our View section as its primary source of information due to the unbalanced slant that it occasionally places on issues.

    If the staff and writers are unwilling and unable to write a fair and unbalanced view, it is in my opinion, that they should do more in-depth coverage of the story and keep their thoughts and views to themselves.
