    It was Friday, about 7:30 p.m., when Greg Bowers got the call.
    Dozens of cars were suddenly stalling moments after their drivers had filled up a little after 5 p.m. at Murphy’s Express, a gas station located along S.C. 9 Bypass. Some never made it past the pumps, while others had sputtered at different spots along the road.

    When Robbie Dunn first built his ranch on a stretch of land off Old Church Road more than a dozen years ago, it was supposed to be a sanctuary for his family and their five horses.
    Nestled near Andrew Jackson State Park, the 10-acre site was meant to be a safe place for his parents to live and for their various horses to roam.
    But Dunn said those dreams were shattered Saturday when he found one of their beloved horses shot to death in a field on his land.

  • 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.
