  • Man charged with attempted murder

    Jesef Williams
    KERSHAW – The arrest of a shooting suspect led deputies to a loaded gun and other stolen property.  
    The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office has charged Curtis Javon Sowell, 22, of 638 Kershaw Country Club Road, Apt. 3C, Kershaw, with attempted murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime and conspiracy.   

  • Arson aftermath

    Jesef Williams
    Locals described the feeling as that of a funeral.  
    Many people cried and others watched in shock as fire tore through the roof of the historic Lancaster County Courthouse during the early morning hours of Aug. 4, 2008.
    Then, less than two months later, the community learned that a Lancaster teen had been arrested in connection with that blaze, as well as a fire on Aug. 7, 2008, at the 6th Circuit Solicitor’s Office on nearby West Dunlap Street.

  • Paying cost of plastic

    Jesef Williams
    Credit cards have become so common that many people frown when an establishment doesn’t accept them for payment.
    Lately, staff at Kershaw Town Hall have been met with confused looks and several questions when customers find out they can’t use their card to pay a bill or fine.
    Officials are now looking to change that. Town Council voted 6-0 at its Monday meeting to begin the process to accept credit and debit cards as a method of payment. Councilman Randy Seegars was absent.

  • A legacy of compassion

    Reece Murphy
    When Brooklyn Springs Elementary School Principal Gwen Hinson-Minor talks about her career in education, her eyes light up and it’s obvious she’s a woman who loves children and helping them learn.
    Still, after 37 years in the field, the last five at the helm at BSE, the popular educator says it’s time to move on – come June 30, she’s handing over her keys and starting a new career as a retiree. And that makes her eyes light up, too.

  • Unity in the Community Saturday

    Jesef Williams
    The event has become sort of legendary for the hundreds of Lancaster County residents and others who come to experience a lot of fish, fellowship and fun.
    It’s called Unity in the Community, and the 15th annual installment of this festival will be from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday on Main Street in downtown Lancaster.
    The Lancaster Fatherhood Project, which sponsors the event, said the purpose is to simply provide a day where the community can gather for fun, entertainment and even some enlightenment.

  • Pass the Helmet a success

    Reece Murphy
    Members of the Indian Land Volunteer Fire Department raised twice as much money as they’d hoped for during a Make-A-Wish fundraiser for a local teen last month.
    IL firefighters held the Fill the Helmet event for Grayson Thomas on May 21 at Food Lion in Indian Land and the intersection of Shelley Mullis Road and U.S. 521.
    The 14-year-old suffers from Duchenne muscular dystrophy, which is usually fatal by the late 20s or early 30s.

  • Coroner’s Office donates computer to Chesterfield

    Special to The Lancaster News
    CHERAW – The Chesterfield County Coroner’s Office recently benefited from the Lancaster County Coroner’s Office’s good fortune. Christy Sexton, an administrative assistant for Lancaster County Coroner Mike Morris, won a drawing for a free Coroner ME computer system at the S.C. Coroner’s Convention held at Myrtle Beach recently.
