  • Kershaw about ready to seek bids for new town hall

    KERSHAW – The town of Kershaw has secured the services of a bond attorney to review its financial records and take that information to get proposals from banks on a loan to finance its new town hall.

    Paul Dillingham of the Spencer law firm in Rock Hill has finished his review and is representing the town in its pursuit of a loan.

    Once Dillingham has a final figure on how much the town wants to borrow, he will send the town's financial information to at least three banks and let them offer loan packages. Council will then vote on which one to accept.

  • Soccer coach teaches true sportsmanship

    Over the past few years, I believe that the Lancaster Recreation Department would agree with me in saying that soccer has become one of the fastest growing sports in this area. With this growth have come many exciting opportunities for the youth of this area. My daughter, who has played soccer for the last five years, has had the unique fortune to be a part of one such experience.

    This year Lancaster organized a Futbol club to promote youth soccer at a higher level. My 11-year-old has been fortunate enough to be a member of this club in its opening season.

  • Boy rams car into home

    Details are still sketchy about a bizarre incident last week in which a car sped into a mobile home on Cambridge Drive in the Smoke Rise community.

    Pam Jeffers came home April 22 to see the front left corner of her trailer severely damaged. Neighbors say a boy was driving a 1999 Ford Crown Victoria that ran off the road, cut through the yard and rammed into the front left corner of the home.

    Jeffers' brother had been asleep in his room on that side of the home. He was the only person in the home at the time. He said the impact felt as if a hurricane or earthquake had hit.

  • Outdoor burning may be banned

    County Council may douse outdoor burning to ensure that the county meets air quality standards.

    County Administrator Steve Willis said he recently learned from S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control officials that Lancaster and Anderson counties have been designated by the Environmental Protection Agency as "areas of concern." This means the counties may fail to meet air-quality standards in the newly adopted 2008 ozone standards.

  • Actress enjoying limelight

    INDIAN LAND – An Indian Land actress hopes to be hitting the big time soon.

    Catherine Trail delivers her first performance in a principal role in "Death, Taxes and Chocolate!," a dark comedy.

    The small-scale independent movie was filmed in Wilmington, N.C., in January.

    Now, it has been selected by a jury to be screened at the very large-scale New York and Los Angeles International Independent Film Festivals.

  • Old IL ZIP code expires July 1

    Lancaster County Auditor Cheryl Morgan wants to remind Indian Land residents to change their addresses to reflect the community's new ZIP code.

    The old Indian Land ZIP code, 29715, expires July 1. The area shared the ZIP with the Fort Mill area in York County.

    Last year, Indian Land was issued a ZIP code of its own, 29707, although it's still listed as a Fort Mill ZIP.

  • SMH honors its volunteers

    Thursday was a special night for the volunteers of Springs Memorial Hospital – a tribute to their many hours of service at the hospital in a variety of ways.

    The 131 volunteers gave more than 22,000 hours of their time in the past year in a variety of capacities, said hospital officials. Many worked at the hospital's busy front desk or gift shop, or provided help in the hospital's many units, such as being liaisons between staff and patients' families in the surgical care unit.

  • We need new attitude about water

    In the past year, we’ve been reminded more than once what an important resource the Catawba River is – not only to us in Lancaster County, but to residents of many counties in both South Carolina and North Carolina.

    First there was the drought that took hold last summer and brought water-use restrictions to communities in both Carolinas that draw water from the Catawba. Then there were the water wars that erupted between North and South Carolina after the cities of Concord and Kannapolis in North Carolina proposed to draw 10 million gallons a day from the river.
