  • Memorial Day time to honor, pay tribute

    In her letter to the editor, Cheryl Rutledge touts the bravery of her grandfather, father and two brothers. She is obviously very proud of them. Their military duties run the gamut – from World War II, Vietnam, Desert Storm and Iraq.

    Now is the perfect time to recognize them and the other men and women who have served in our military throughout the world. Tomorrow is Memorial Day. A day set aside to pay tribute and honor those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.

  • Daniel is 'caring, honest, compassionate'

    My name is Mary Phillips. I am the aunt of Daniel Workman, who is 10 years old and attends Erwin Elementary. Daniel was recently baptized at White Springs Baptist Church.

    Recently, while I was shopping for groceries at Wal-Mart, Daniel and my daughter, Karli, were in the game room playing.

    After checking out, I went to the game room to get them and Daniel was standing beside the huge bubble gum machine. Daniel said he couldn’t go then because he was guarding the machine. It seems the back had come off of the machine and piles of quarters were in full view.

  • 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.

    Continental Tire will move 300 employees from its Charlotte headquarters to the 75,000-square foot building in McMillan Business Park in Indian Land.

  • 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.

    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.
