  • County rolls forward on Continental incentives

    To the disappointment of several former Continental Tire employees, a developer that will house the tire company's new headquarters in Indian Land is one step closer to receiving major incentives.

    County Council unanimously passed second reading Monday to approve a fee-in-lieu of taxes agreement with MacMillan Investments, which is leasing its building on S.C. 160 to Continental Tire.

  • We're all responsible for our actions

    I was sitting at home with my pit bull dog and was thinking about a lot of things. The television was off and the only sound I could hear was her breathing. I realized how many people have their own look at things – how we perceive, assume and anticipate things.

  • Senior Helpers opens

    INDIAN LAND Opening Senior Helpers is Seth Zamek's way of giving back, he said.

    When his mother-in-law suffered a broken hip after a fall, the family needed a professional caregiver, Zamek said.

    The experience left such an impression on Zamek and his wife, Jennie, that they decided to open their own Senior Helpers caregiving franchise after Jennie's mother died.

    Senior Helpers offers companion and personal in-home health-care services, primarily for the elderly, that range from one-hour to 24-hour care, Zamek said.

  • Springs Memorial lays off 43

    The local hospital is feeling the pinch of a slow local economy.

    Springs Memorial Hospital laid off 43 employees across a number of departments Monday. Sixteen positions are eliminated through attrition, meaning the posts are not being filled after they are vacated.

    The reduction in staff won't impact patient care, a news release from the hospital said.

  • No more patching of city lot

    For those who might be wondering, the mess at the Lancaster Fire Department is a sign of progress being made, not mayhem.

    The Lancaster Fire Department's station on Arch Street may appear dysfunctional, with only dirt and scaffolding in place of where pavement once was for trucks to drive over when headed to a call.

    But the current look is part of a $150,000 project that calls for a new parking lot and retaining wall that the city of Lancaster allocated in its 2007-08 budget.

    It's long overdue, said Lancaster Fire Chief Chris Nunnery.

  • 'Cancer thing' inspires AJ student to pursue medical career

    KERSHAW - Surviving brain cancer can bring not only a big sense of relief, but it can also inspire one to pursue a higher calling.

    For Riketa Williams, 17, a senior at Andrew Jackson High School, that has certainly been the case.

    Williams will graduate with a nearly 4.0 grade point average from the school and will attend Converse College in the fall to major in biochemistry. She wants to eventually become an obstetrician/gynecologist.

  • Sally Deese cooks by faith

    Sally Deese sat beneath the giant trees in her front yard on Monday that give her 40-acre Four Oaks Farm in the Camp Creek Community its name, watching two of her grandchildren play in a nearby swing.

  • Give some serious thought to 60/40 split

    It’s not rocket science. If you clearcut the land, build multi-housing developments and move people in, you are going to increase the need for services. Those services include adequate infrastructure – roads, utilities, etc. – more law enforcement and emergency medical services.

    And it’s a good bet that many of those moving into the new housing developments are children, children who need to be educated – in our schools that are already bursting at the seams.
