  • Council looking at a 60/40 split with school district

    County Council is considering collecting fees from developers that could go to the Lancaster County School District.

    Council has started talking about splitting fees it collects through development agreements for residential developers 60/40 with the school district. If the county collects $10,000 per home, $4,000 of that would go to the school district, for example.

  • Discovery school requires commitment

    In Wynette Burchfield’s letter, “Election is not a popularity contest,” in the April 27 edition of The Lancaster News, some statements were made that might give people the wrong impression of Discovery School.

  • ‘Prostitution free zones’ not way to combat problem

    OK, we admit it – we don’t quite get it. Lancaster County Council’s consideration of an ordinance that would declare three areas just outside the city of Lancaster as “prostitution-free zones” just doesn’t quite make sense to us.

    Prostitution-free zone? Who came up with phrase and concept? It’s something we’ve never heard of and, frankly, wouldn’t have thought Lancaster County needed.

  • Couple swim to safety after plane crashes into Catawba

    A local couple suffered no injuries Friday afternoon when their small airplane crash landed in the Catawba River at S.C. 9.

    Fort Lawn resident John Sedberry and his wife, Bobbie, had taken off from the Lancaster County Airport in a one-engine Glasair airplane. They were flying to Port St. Lucie, Fla.

    Millard Lipsey and two of his friends were fishing in a boat on the river when they saw the plane fly over the river and gradually start to descend.

    “We thought it was going to land, but it kept bouncing until it started sinking,” he said.

  • Poking fun of front porch nappers can haunt you later in life

    Growing up, I could never refrain from making glib comments about the things I saw.

    Several years ago, I made what I perceived to be, some cute remarks about Uncle Walter’s frequent snoring bouts in his front porch rocking chair.

    He would sit there with his eyes shut tight, drooping head and wide-open mouth sleeping away.

    More than once, I secretly wished that a housefly would glide in his open cavity with the precision of the B-17 Flying Fortresses from the movie reels that made it back to England after a successful bombing mission over Germany.

  • Mulvaney has experience we need in Senate

    I support S.C. Rep. Mick Mulvaney for the District 45 Senate seat. My experience with him has been consistently marked by his unbridled energy, enthusiasm and interest in his being a representative to all his constituents.

    Coupled with his energy, interest and enthusiasm is a forward-looking, fiscally conservative insight into the political process and the sometimes questionable practices by some of our lawmakers. For example, witness the recent back-door pay raise that Mulvaney helped defeat.

  • One day lawn mower thief will be caught

    To the brave team who took the John Deere mower from our yard, you should be ashamed. If you knew us, you would not have taken from us. We would have given you the shirt from our backs, but you would have known that, had you known us.

  • Writer doesn't like dog tethering bill

    I just read that the dog tethering bill passed the S.C. Senate. I am absolutely livid.

    How dare so many responsible dog owners be lumped into a bill that is geared to reduce dogfighting. This is totally against my rights. I understand that the government wants to rid the state of dogfighting, but this is unconstitutional.

    What about all of us who tether our dogs during the day and release them all night to guard our livestock? What about all of us who have our hunting dogs on trolley systems until the hunt? These are loved working dogs.

  • Don't leave victims in dark

    Can you name one person who has not been exposed to some type of violence? In today’s society it is normal for all of us to be exposed to some type of violence.

    Violence is displayed in or outside of your home. It is depicted through television, video games or simple everyday living. There is no escaping it.
