  • Primary runoff Tuesday

    All registered Lancaster County voters may vote in the Republican primary runoffs Tuesday.

    The June 28 runoffs, like the June 14 primaries, will be open elections to determine the GOP winners of the Lancaster County Council District 1 seat and county auditor’s post. 

  • ‘Working Revival’

    Fifty people from across the state, plus one from Alabama, took a week out of their summer vacation to work on local homes during Lancaster’s 13th annual Salkehatchie camp.

    The campers invested $230 each into building supplies, travel expenses and food to help renovate four Lancaster homes at no cost to their owners. 

  • Ansley Park issues complicated

    If there has been one common refrain among Indian Land residents concerned with the effects of growth on their community it is this: Lancaster County officials allow developers to do what they want without regard for the community’s best interests.

    Recently, those concerns have revolved around Ansley Park, a 309-home residential project that is the latest attempt to develop a portion of an 11-year-old mixed-use planned development district between Henry Harris Road and U.S. 521.

  • Column: Wilt throws support behind Stroble

    Iclearly lost the Republican primary election on June 14, running behind both Terry Graham and Melvin Stroble. I can accept this result, but it leaves me with the question of how to respond to my supporters asking for my recommendation as to which candidate to support in the runoff election on June 28.

  • Column: Graham seeks your vote in runoff

    Iam Terry Graham and I am running for Lancaster County Council District 1.  
    I would like to thank all the voters who voted in the primary on June 14.
    I received 46.1 percent of the vote, and the second place candidate received 22.42 percent. My support was broad-based, from both new and old residents. However, because I did not reach the 50 percent plus one threshold, there must be a runoff on June 28.

  • Column: Blackmon touts his experience, ideas

    In running for the Lancaster County Auditor’s Office, I have greatly appreciated the warm hospitality shown by so many and appreciate their concerns for a modernized auditor’s office, which truly puts taxpayers first. My background of success at managing operations for a large and growing construction company, senior management roles in the state Department of Revenue and record of community service has given me the ability to manage the auditor’s office, while bringing needed reforms and planning for future growth.

  • Christian Services yard sale way to grow ministry

    Hidden Treasures is aptly named.
    From furniture, dishes and knick-knacks to barely used prom dresses and gently used dress clothes, there are bargains galore every day at the Christian Services thrift store on Great Falls Highway.
    But those offerings will grow outside the walls this weekend.
    The agency that helps feed the county’s hungry families is holding a rent-a-space yard sale from 7 a.m. to noon Saturday. Cost is a $20 donation per 10-by-10-foot space.

  • Remember When: Scary Stuff

    To tell the truth, I ain’t scared, ‘cepting when I hear noises coming from places where they ought not to.
    Me and Mama, as usual, went to the Parr Picture Show for Jackpot Night and the movie was one of them good old Charlie Chan ones about ghosts inside of an old castle. Boy, I sat on the edge of my seat until the picture was over.
    You know, on the walk home, it seemed that there were a lot more shadows along the tree-lined walkway. Oh well, it was still too early for bedtime, so I turned on the radio and some scary stories were being broadcast.

  • Bounty Night at speedway Saturday

    This Saturday night is Bounty Night and Bonus Money at Lancaster Super Speedway.
    Speedway owner Doug McManus put up a $100 bounty on the Bakers (Andrew and Brandy) in the Montgomery Towing Super Stock Division.
    Then two more sponsors stepped up and put up more bounty money on the Bakers. Swankyville and Rocky's Electric have put up $100 each to any driver who can beat the Bakers this Saturday night, for a total bounty of $300.
