  • Letter: Murphy supports Blackmon in auditor’s runoff

    I would like to encourage everyone to please get out and vote in the primary runoff election for the county auditor’s race on Tuesday, June 28.

  • Letter: Backing Hunter Wallace in runoff for auditor

    Cheryl Morgan is retiring as auditor for Lancaster County. I would like to thank her for her many years of service in that capacity. She served long and well and has certainly earned her time of retirement.
    It is a comfort to know that Susan Hunter Wallace is running for the position of auditor. She has been a county employee for the past 14 years and has served in the auditor’s office the last six years as deputy auditor. I feel that she is well qualified and will oversee this position in an efficient and respectful manner if elected.

  • Letter: Environmental worries about Haile Gold Mine

    Mick Mulvaney needs to be voted out of office for his participation in allowing the Haile Gold Mine permits to desecrate Lancaster County.
    They are currently pumping our groundwater out via 30 wells. This great amount of water not only affects people who rely on wells, but will affect the Lancaster County Water and Sewer District.
    The company’s extensive use of chemicals has the great potential for eventually ruining the land. Oceana Gold has a history of this in other countries.

  • Letter: Sheriff’s office helps S.C. Special Olympics

    We were excited to accept a donation from the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office to the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics South Carolina.
    The sheriff’s office held its annual Chick-fil-A “sit” on June 1, raising more than $7,000.

  • Letter: Lions’ broom sale helps county’s children

    The Lancaster Lions Club would like to thank Lancaster County Schools for allowing us to test the sight and hearing of elementary school children within the district.
    So far in 2016, we have tested 1,760 kindergartners to fifth graders for sight and found 284 students required follow-up with an optometrist due to various abnormalities. We tested 671 students’ hearing, and 25 were recommended to follow-up with an audiologist.
    We are proud to serve the residents of Lancaster County and look forward to the future.

  • Letter: Endorsing Susan Hunter Wallace for auditor

    Mrs. Cheryl Morgan is retiring as auditor for Lancaster County. I would like to thank her for her many years of service in that capacity. She served long and well and has certainly earned her time of retirement.
    It is a comfort to know that Mrs. Susan Hunter Wallace is running for the position of auditor.

  • LETTER: Wallace: Consider my hands-on experience as deputy auditor
  • LETTER: Murphy: Spent half my life serving Lancaster County's citizens

    Editor’s note: At the beginning of primary campaign season, we offered candidates a chance to write one letter to the editor before the June 14 vote explaining why they should be elected. In the race for Lancaster County auditor, we ran a letter from Allen Blackmon June 1. Below are letters from the other two candidates in the race. This will be the last opinion page items on the local election before Tuesday’s voting.

  • Letter: Thanks to all who helped make candidates forum a success

    The 2016 Before You Vote Candidates Forum on May 26 at Inspiration Ministries/Cross Ridge was a great success.
    We want to thank all the Indian Land residents who took this opportunity to meet and listen to the candidates. I am sure they went  home with new information to help them vote on June 14.
    Rick Jiran, vice president of communications with Duke Power, was a fantastic moderator. Thank you and we want you back.  
    The Rev. David Bender of Faith Presbyterian Church, thank you  for a moving invocation.

  • Letter: Opponent’s attack on Mulvaney at forum not appreciated

    I have just come from the candidates forum in Indian Land. While it was very informative, all of the candidates with one exception were civil.
    The man running against Congressman Mick Mulvaney decided his time was best suited to make personal attacks.
    I do not appreciate this type of campaign.
