  • Study seeks to help jobless

    More training and better job placement for unemployed workers, as well as improved communication between local organizations, are all recommendations from the county’s first workforce study. 

    The $20,000 study, commissioned by Lancaster County Council last fall to address unemployment and help find ways to put people back to work, was recently completed by Greenville-based marketing research and workforce development agency 10-x Group. 

  • White Oak's red rose

    In the last 47 years, Joyce Weathersby has seen more than most as a nurse at Marion Sims Hospital, Grace White Nursing Home, Springs Memorial Hospital and White Oak Manor.
    Given that, it’s hard to get anything over on, or past her.
    Weathersby hesitantly agreed to a “going-away” party several weeks ago when she announced her retirement.
    That eliminated any chance of friends, family, co-workers and well-wishers surprising her at White Oak Manor on Wednesday afternoon.
    Well, maybe not.

  • Justice for All

    It took thousands of cubic yards of concrete, hundreds of thousands of bricks and several miles of electrical cables, but the county’s new courthouse is almost ready to open.

    Chad Catledge and Danny Mullis, the men behind the scenes of the courthouse construction, updated Lancaster County Council on Tuesday night about the building’s progress and what is still left to do. 

  • Remember When;I'll take a dime store any day

    Bless Pete, these super stores sure are something.They have stuff scattered all over the place. From cabbages to carpet tacks with aspirin thrown in for good measure, they have it.
    To be truthful, these “supercenters” try to fool us. They will move merchandise around so we have to walk every aisle to find the headache remedies.
    Other times, they just flat forget to restock our favorites. Here’s the issue as I see it; not even the folks who work in ’em can tell you where the soy sauce is stocked.

  • Don’t forget to vote in election on Tuesday

    Senate District 16 voters will see these candidates on their ballots on Tuesday:
    u Republican Greg Gregory of Lancaster
    u Democrat Keith Brann of Fort Mill
