    Four men were arrested last week after a drug investigation uncovered illegal drugs at a local bar.

  • Hot days give way to cold dreams

    Me and Billy Pipkins stopped what we were doing to get a swallow of drinking water from the old hose pipe in the back yard. 

    We made sure to let it run a little before taking a sip and cooling off our faces. Boy is it hot! 

    Our toy guns, which we placed on an old box before stopping by the watering hole, were just too hot to handle. 

    Since it was too hot to play cowboys, we decided to mosey around for a while.

  • County fixes Edenmoor roads

    Indian Land – Jane Tanner didn’t expect to see any progress as she drove through the crumbling streets of the Edenmoor neighborhood last Tuesday. 

    Taking a few minutes to show a friend around the stalled residential development, located between Jim Wilson Road and S.C. 75 in Indian Land, Tanner had just finished examining the completed, but still vacant, recreation center. 

    The building, finished several years ago, now sits covered from roof to foundation in graffiti. 

  • Council to revise freeze on rezoning

    Lancaster County Council will discuss a change to its freeze on property rezonings in Indian Land at its Monday meeting. 

    Council recently imposed a moratorium on rezonings in the Panhandle area, though council members are considering an exemption for planned development districts. 

    County Administrator Steve Willis said the amendment is in response to a developer’s request to create a 100-acre PDD in the Indian Land area.

  • Animal rescue group moves into new home

    Friday was a good day for Paws in the Panhandle, as volunteers began moving into the organization’s new home base.

    Located at 10681 Barberville Road, the oak tree-shaded property includes a 121-year-old, three-bedroom home with more than enough room for expansion as the organization grows, Paws in the Panhandle founder Gloria Davey said. 

    The organization, dedicated to creating a no-kill animal shelter in Indian Land for Lancaster County, closed on the 3-acre property Thursday, Aug. 4.
