    Publix plans back on track

    Plans for a new Indian Land supermarket are back on track after Lancaster County Council moved forward Tuesday with an ordinance it tabled only a week before. 

    Progress on a proposed Publix grocery store halted briefly at the end of January after council tabled an ordinance to rezone several acres of land where it would be built. The store is planned to become the first tenant at the former site of Roy Hardin Park, at 8357 Collins Rd in Indian Land. 

  • Family Promise making a difference

    Family Promise has had a drastic impact on Lancaster County. For nearly two years now, Lancaster area churches have reached out to homeless families in an effort to give them a lift.
    Family Promise is a pioneering nonprofit organization dedicated to helping America’s low-income families secure lasting independence. Some 161 affiliates and 130,000 volunteers spanning 41 states provide annual assistance to more than 45,000 citizens.
    In 1988, the program went national and moved into communities across the nation, including Lancaster.

  • Back-row view of state spending problems

    One of us is a Democrat and one of us is a Republican. But more important than party affiliation is a  commitment to responsible and honest government in our state. That’s why we have joined together to condemn the recent action of the Budget and Control Board to approve deficit spending by South Carolina agencies.

  • Protect the votes of those who protect our freedom to vote

    Although there’s no way to adequately express our thanks to the men and women who have made sacrifices in defending our nation, South Carolinians have always believed in doing our part to return the favor.
    I dare say that nowhere in America, nowhere in the world, will you find more patriotic citizens than right here in South Carolina – people who understand that freedom comes at great cost, and who offer their gratitude and support to those who serve.
