  • A few candidates embrace Internet in '08 campaign

    It used to be that the only way political candidates could reach a large audience was to spend their days walking door to door, meeting voters where they lived.

    But in a world where social network Web sites such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter have become the quickest ways to reach an audience, candidates in local elections have turned to emerging technology to reach even more potential voters.

    BUFORD - The Friday night lights in Buford hosted the McBee Panthers this week and the visitors went home the victors with an 18-0 win.

    It was homecoming night for the Yellow Jackets, as Jordan Boone took home the crown. The night quickly became bitter-sweet for the host Jackets, however, as they were blanked by the Panthers 18-0.

    The Panthers posted their first points on the night with 6:54 remaining in the first quarter when MHS ace running back Justin Bristow toted the football into the end zone from two yards out.

  • Humane Society still exists

    You may have heard recently that the Humane Society of Lancaster County Inc. has dissolved. Several of the members of the board of directors voted to dissolve and indeed are at this time actively pursuing that. But this is not the wish of the entire board.

    The Humane Society of Lancaster is still operating and continues our pledge to place the health and welfare of these endangered pets and that we will work with animal control officers and with the county government to assure that we can save as many as possible.

  • Legislators should be fighting for local jobs

    Have you heard of regionalism? This is the newest threat to border counties like Lancaster and York, and it benefits North Carolina businesses at our expense. And Mick Mulvaney, with his Charlotte-based development company, and close ties to Charlotte business, is not doing anything to fight for us here in South Carolina.

  • Cancer no respecter

    A heart-shaped balloon was attached to her wheelchair. The balloon signified her effort to raise money for cancer research.

    She logs the donation amount and the donor’s name in a spiral notebook she keeps in her room at the nursing home.

    October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the facility had launched a month-long fundraising campaign for cancer research. The building was adorned in pink. Displayed on the hallway wall were the names of cancer victims written on pink paper. They included family members of the residents and staff and the patients.

  • Curry considers jobs top priority for city

    In my 17 years with the Lancaster City Council, we have faced the most difficult challenge this community has confronted in recent memory. When asked what my biggest priority would be should I keep my council seat in the upcoming election, I would say it’s jobs.

    With plant closings in our area, you see the long lines at the S.C. Employment Security Commission, which is right next door to where I work. It’s always on my mind as I know people are hurting financially right now.
