  • Don't let Senate 16 race become a sideshow

    Time out! It’s time for some of you extremely passionate supporters in the intense District 16 state Senate race to pause for a minute (or two) and regain some perspective. Or, at least we think so.

  • Mulvaney wrong about York County Dems

    I read with amusement Mick Mulvaney’s statement that the York County Democratic Party used the Freedom of Information Act to request copies of his e-mails.

    I’m chair of the York County Democratic Party and that is news to me. If Mulvaney gets confused about things like this, one wonders what else he gets confused about?

    What is true is that we in York look forward to Mandy Powers Norrell being one of our state senators.

    We, like y’all, are proud of our public schools and can’t trust Mulvaney to be a good steward of them.

  • Mulvaney brings 'rare package of talent to legislature'

    I’ve been privileged to hold the S.C. Senate District 16 seat for 16 years. Now that my retirement is days away my thoughts turn to the question of who will fill the seat for the next term.

    Both candidates seeking this office are qualified. I’ve watched fondly as Mandy Powers Norrell, my former Sunday school pupil, grow from a young girl into a successful professional.

    She has run an impressive race for this office and could certainly do the job.

    Rep. Mick Mulvaney, however, brings a rare package of talent to the legislature.

  • City Council moves several projects forward

    Lancaster City Council voted Tuesday to move forward with several construction and improvement projects.

    The projects include a lease-purchase agreement to buy city equipment, funding to upgrade a lift station and to power a former Springs Global building.

    Council unanimously approved final reading of an ordinance that will provide the city with a lease-purchase agreement to buy new equipment.

    The proposed agreement, which totals $825,000, divides the requested equipment into two separate funds.

  • Shiloh Zion VFD celebrates 50 years of community service

    The Shiloh Zion Volunteer Fire Department has been a community hub for 50 years now.

  • Liens filed against developers

    INDIAN LAND – Edenmoor is apparently not paying its bills.

    According to information from the Lancaster County register of deeds office, three liens, totaling about $2.2 million, have been filed by contractors against Edenmoor.

    Edenmoor is an 800-acre development planned to have about 2,000 homes when complete. It is owned by Lawson's Bend LLC.

    GS Carolina handles development activity for Lawson's Bend, but does not have any ownership in Edenmoor, said GS Carolina development manager Sean Calloway.

  • Green, Sumner square off in City Council District 4

    Two-term Lancaster City Councilman Bill Sumner and political newcomer Tamara Green are vying for the District 4 seat in this year's city election.

    Election Day is Nov. 4.

    Tamara Green

    Green, 34, who was born and raised in Lancaster, said she decided to run after thinking about her passion and drive to help the people in her community. She lists safety as a chief concern.

  • We need people like Mulvaney in county

    These are very unsettling times. During these times we need strong leadership from our elected officials. Sen. Greg Gregory has provided this for the last 16 years. With his retirement, we will need to elect a strong conservative to lead us.

  • Katawba trust introduces director at annual meeting

    Austin Jenkins, Katawba Valley Land Trust's executive director, reflected on his lifelong passion for nature while introducing himself to the public last week.

    Jenkins remembers watching animals and insects while marveling at the different trees and plants while growing up in Camden. He believes that curiosity for nature has landed him in what he calls the perfect job.

    Jenkins, who recently became KVLT's first executive director, spoke during the trust's annual meeting, held Oct. 9 at the Carole Ray Dowling Center at the University of South Carolina at Lancaster.

  • Bad Christian attends Vigil Mass on Saturdays

    During the past few weeks, there have been letters to the editor criticizing Mick Mulvaney and his fellow Rotarians for cutting the grass along U.S. 521 on a Sunday morning.

    The letter writers implied that Mr. Mulvaney is not a “good Christian” because he was performing a community service on a Sunday morning rather than attending a church service.

    I assume the letter writers are unaware that Mr. Mulvaney and millions of other Roman Catholics in the United States attend Vigil Mass on Saturday in lieu of Sunday services.
