  • Letter: Praying for peace this Christmas

    I am writing because I am praying that this Christmas there will be peace in the world in God’s time.
    I think about all the hatred, which I believe is being fueled by President Trump. Some say he knows he is doing this, while others say he doesn’t realize it. Let’s get real people – he knows. But only God can change a hardened heart. I believe this is what’s wrong with him.

  • Letter: Facts to consider in assessing VTIL

    Just a few facts to set the record straight and provide a proper perspective to those of us living in the proposed Town of Indian Land.
    ◆ After almost two years of hard work and thousands of volunteer hours – totally self funded – Voters for a Town of Indian Land submitted the Town of Indian Land incorporation package to the S.C. secretary of state last May.
    ◆ The state’s Joint Legislative Committee for Municipal Incorporation did not hold the first of two hearings on the plan until Aug. 18.

  • Letter: SCCL HOA fees are not out of line

    I reside in Sun City and read with interest Merrel Wilkenfeld’s Dec. 8 letter “Sun City dweller is feeling gouged.”
    Anyone who purchased a home here should never have assumed the HOA fee would remain the same. I do not think that $42 in 11 years is out of line. Ours is one of the cheapest around, and we get a lot for our money.
    However, if you do not utilize the amenities, perhaps you did move to the wrong neighborhood.

  • Letter: Help by standing up for abused kids

    The season of giving is upon us, and there is no better gift than giving back to your community.
    Being a volunteer with the Cass Elias McCarter Guardian ad Litem Program allows you to give a short amount of your time to an abused and neglected child in Lancaster County all year round. The joy you will receive knowing you made a difference in the life of a child is priceless.

  • Letter: Tanner to vote yes on IL incorporation

    I am continually being asked my position on Indian Land incorporating. I am voting yes.
    The last straw for me was Lancaster County Planning Commission changing its meeting hours to 6 p.m. That was the last slap in the face from Lancaster County. This change was made so Indian Land residents will find it almost impossible to attend the meetings and speak out for our community.

  • Letter: Both parties have backed predators

    Sen. John Conyers is stepping down from office after living off the taxpayers’ dime for over 50 years. Now we will have to pay his pension, which probably makes my pension look like a tip.
    How about not only Congress, but their staff using taxpayers’ money to settle lawsuits against them? I never thought to ask for that at my union contract meetings.

  • Letter: Sun City dweller is feeling gouged

    I read your Nov. 26 article with interest regarding Indian Land jobs and skyrocketing income.
    We purchased our home in Sun City 10½ years ago for cash after selling our home in Raintree (N.C.) after 24-plus years.
    In all these years, I have always felt gouged at the Water Department since two seniors (wife and myself) pay on average $60 per month for water. Our home in Charlotte was almost twice the size, three children still lived with us then and the water was about half the cost.

  • Letter: Transplant will vote no to incorporation

    I read with dismay the news about the Indian Land incorporation initiative. I am relocating with my family from Pennsylvania to South Carolina for the warm weather, nice people and especially the low taxes and low cost of living.

  • Letter: New post office should be in center of IL

    Regarding the new U.S. post office in the 29707 ZIP code – the area known as Indian Land.
    Postal officials were quoted as saying they have listened to the people and have moved the location of the new 29707 post office west of Lowe’s near S.C. 160.
    I don’t believe they listen too good.  
    Why do we need a new post office only a few miles from the Fort Mill 29715 post office? Why do we want it close to the North Carolina state line?

  • Letter: Not all social media news is ‘fake’

    I feel compelled to tell you that I really enjoy the paper.
    The article in the Nov. 8 edition about James Elliott “Willy” Williams was fantastic for this Veterans Day edition. Truly a local hero.
