  • Free chamber workshop for small businesses

    A law went in effect last year that requires all South Carolina employers to take additional steps to verify employment eligibility for newly hired employees.

    Private employers with 100 or more employees were required to have the new steps in place last year. Private employers with less than 100 employees are required to be in compliance by July 1.

    To be in compliance, an employer must follow three steps that include:

    • Complete and maintain Form I-9.

  • A true Southern lady

    If you were in downtown Lancaster on Feb. 6, 1999, you probably haven’t forgotten an event significant to local history.

    Just over a year later, on May 21, 2000, the beautifully restored and enhanced home was dedicated by former Gov. Jim Hodges as Kilburnie, the Inn at Craig Farm.
