  • Letter: Sincere prayers for Parkers, Howards

    This letter is to the families of Bobby Parker Sr. and Mayor John Howard.
    To the Parker family, know that you are in my prayers. God bless you all in this time of loss.
    To the family of Mayor Howard, may God put angels around him and grant him a full and speedy recovery. He is in my prayers also.

  • Letter: VTIL going after too much farmland

    On Saturday, Feb. 10, my wife and I took a ride down to the southern end of Indian Land. Since we live near 160 and 521, we pretty much covered the length of Indian Land.
    We drove around the area up and down a number of side roads to get a feel of what Voters for a Town of Indian Land wants to incorporate. It is appalling the amount of farmland they want to include in the town.
    We understand it is about 40 square miles of the 58 square miles they want to include, but you don’t realize how much this is until you see it.

  • Letter: Valentine visits to VA hospital

    This Valentine’s Day, many S.C. veterans who fought to preserve our freedoms will be hospitalized, receiving the medical care they earned, but separated from the homes and communities they defended. 
    No one should be alone on Valentine’s Day, and with the help of our grateful community, no veteran has to be.

  • Letter: Let’s all pray for Mayor Howard

    I am writing this letter for myself and all other citizens of Lancaster, to express the thoughts and prayers that are in all our hearts regarding Mayor John Howard.
    We all know John’s illness is taking a toll on him. I am asking each citizen to add their own private prayers on behalf of John, asking God to watch over him and help him recover from this illness.
    Thank you.

  • Letter: Logic questioned on banning guns

    Every time someone is shot and killed, there is a hue and cry to ban guns. But no one ever says anything about banning liquor when someone is killed by a drunk driver.
    On another matter, if they are convicted, the parents of the 13 children tortured in California should be lined up before a firing squad and eliminated.

  • Letter: Let’s celebrate progress, plan future

    Since we were first brought to these shores, African-Americans have played a vital role in the history of our nation. There have been incredibly hard times, and there have been giant steps forward.
    Black History Month is no longer simply about where we have been, but also to remind ourselves of where we can go in the future.
    We stand on the shoulders of giants, not just Dr. King or Rosa Parks, but the Friendship Nine, Jo Ann Robinson, and Mary Moultrie as well. In the darkest  times, they taught us all what it truly means to be an American.

  • Letter: Regional apartment manager thanks Lancaster firefighters

    I am a regional manager for Pendergraph Management, and I manage apartment properties in North and South Carolina.

    On Jan. 2, I received a call from the company that monitors our fire-sprinkler alarms, saying we had an alarm going off at one of our Lancaster complexes.

  • Letter: Misleading Indian Land signs are promising voters too much

    The vote on incorporating the town of Indian Land has been set for Tuesday, March 27. The vote will be yes or no.

    Please try and get the facts. I personally don’t understand what the facts are on why a group wants me to vote yes. My opinion: It started with someone being denied a zoning permit. 

    I have called the state and some elected officials, and here is what I got from them. The county of Lancaster will not lower your taxes. 

  • Letter: Council on Aging thanks donors to Shoebox for Seniors

    Thanks to all the churches and individuals who participated in the Shoebox for Seniors project in December. This project, sponsored by the Lancaster County Council on Aging, was another success story!
    We received enough gifts again this year to send out to our home-delivered-meal clients, and we also were able to give gifts to our group-dining clients during our annual Christmas party held at each of our sites.

  • Letter: Becoming a town won’t solve Indian Land’s growth issues

    My family lives in Indian Land, and I know many of the people promoting the incorporation of Indian Land.
    I appreciate the efforts they have undertaken. However, I enthusiastically oppose incorporation. My reasons are pretty simple:
    Incorporation will not reduce school overcrowding. The Lancaster County School District runs the schools, not the county. The school system is separate from the county now, and it will continue to be separate after any incorporation. Having a town changes nothing with the schools.
