  • Indian Land home running on sunshine

    INDIAN LAND - Peter Manfre's power meter sometimes runs backwards.

    Manfre is working with York Electric Cooperative in a net metering project. He collects solar power at his home on Henry Harris Road. What solar energy his home doesn't use goes back onto the power grid to be used by other customers of the utility.

    Manfre's system has 24 panels that collect solar power. They work best on cold, clear fall days, he said. On a recent overcast, chilly day, the system was likely generating almost nothing, maybe 300 watts, he said.

  • Initial opinion of Mulvaney wrong

    I was disappointed when Mick Mulvaney won S.C. House District 45 in 2006. Today, I feel that it is necessary that I salute Mulvaney because he has proven my initial judgment wrong.

    All too often, we voters are left in the dark while lawmakers make decisions that affect us. We may get a newspaper article or a news segment to keep us informed. Yet, voters are usually left to wonder "what are those lawmakers thinking?"

    Mick, thank you for providing your constituents with an explanation of your voting record.
