  • Festival almost here

    INDIAN LAND – There is something planned for everyone at the third annual Fall into Fun Festival.

    The festival will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 4 at Indian Land Middle School. Proceeds from the festival will benefit the Del Webb Library at Indian Land, which is slated to open late this year or in early 2009.

    The festival has a change of venue this year, from Sun City Carolina Lakes to Indian Land Middle School. Organizers hope the new location will offer better parking and more visibility from U.S. 521, to draw in more attendance.

  • Powers Norrell best candidate for Senate

    I was born and raised in Lancaster. I now live in Columbia, but I keep up with what’s going on in my hometown. I would like to respond to Cindy Rodgers’ letter to the editor concerning the upcoming Senate race between Mandy Powers Norrell and Mick Mulvaney.

  • Writer questions real reason for shortage

    Well, the oil companies and the gas stations have found a way around being investigated for price gouging. I tried to get gas Wednesday night and every station I went to was either closed or roped off.

    It seems to be a coincidence that they are running out of gas just as Attorney General Henry McMaster started investigating gas stations for price gouging.

  • Panhandle stations face run on gas

    Facing long lines, closed gas stations and frayed nerves, many motorists have found it increasingly difficult to locate gas in Lancaster County, and it's possible shortages could last for at least another week.

    Gas stations in the Panhandle in particular have seen a run as motorists from Charlotte, where shortages have been severe, have crossed the stateline to fill up their tanks.

  • Group questions why program terminated

    We are concerned citizens. We would like to know why our group at Catawba Mental Health Center has been terminated.

    Our psychosocial rehabilitative group has been beneficial to us in preparing us to participate in the community and take better care of ourselves.

    We have enjoyed coming to the meetings two-five days a week. We are shocked and disappointed in changes being made in our services.

    We need services to prevent us from having too much time on our hands.

    This often leads to our being rehospitalized, which costs our state much more.

  • Mulvaney 'open, honest, willing to help'

    On Sept. 21, in a back room of the Lancaster County Library, a scary thing happened. S.C. Rep. and S.C. Senate hopeful, Mick Mulvaney walked into a room of parents of special needs children. This was actually very brave of Mulvaney since he does not have a child with a disability and may have not had a clue as to what the joys, struggles and hopes of these parents were.

  • Know all the facts before voting in November

    Here we are, fellow Americans. We are down to the final months to make our final decisions about who we are going to vote for president and vice president. I am writing because I care about my future, your future, the future of our friends and families, the future of our military and the future of the world.

    We all should know that each nation has an impact on the entire world in one way or another. We know that America has a powerful impact on the world.

  • Republican women shocked by Smith's letter on Palin and Norrell

    As Republican women, we suspect our vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin would cringe to know that her name was being used to try to promote a Democrat candidate as liberal as Mandy Powers Norrell. We would think her choice in this race would be an easy one – she would support Mick Mulvaney, the Republican candidate for State Senate, a true conservative reformer. We do, too.
