  • No progress being made on skate park

    I’m Dustin Owens and I have been trying to get a skate park open here in Lancaster. It has been almost an entire year since I started going to council meetings. Guess what? Nothing has been done because the city of Lancaster refuses to put in any effort. They tell me the same excuse over and over again.

  • Community shows support for Chandler

    On Jan. 21, Mane Street Hair Designers hosted an event at the University of South Carolina Lancaster to remember, honor and celebrate the life of Judy Chandler and her many contributions to the  community.
    My staff and I are humbled by the outpouring of support from sponsors, entertainers, other salons, local businesses and countless individuals – all who helped make this a very special evening.
    I have never been more proud to live in Lancaster. This is truly a very special place, where people care about each other.

  • It’s Christmas event, not the date, that’s important

    What’s with Minister James Hewett IV in his letter, “Christmas is not in the Scripture?”
    He tells us that the word “Mass” (with a capital M) means death. Let’s start with the Webster’s II University Dictionary: “Mass – the celebration of the Eucharist in Roman Catholic and some Protestant churches.”
    The word “mass” has many meanings, but not one being “death.”

  • Seniors grateful for Christmas shoe boxes

    The Heath Springs Lunch Bunch (Council on Aging), Mount Calvary Outreach, Heath Springs and Kershaw community seniors would like to thank the Hillside Class of 1970 for making each of us so happy and thankful for the lovely Christmas shoe box gifts.
    Our sincere thanks for your kindness, as well as the many valuable items in each box. We pray for your continued success in all your undertakings.

  • We plan to stay in Lancaster, encourage its growth

    We moved to Lancaster less than a year ago. Obviously, we disagree with the CNN report, recognize it to be a negative to growth, but also think it makes some valid points. Lancaster is a great, quiet, cost-effective place to live.  
    But if you want 21st-century amenities, then you often need to leave town.
    Local shopping is basically over-run by a Walmart, while we let Main Street and other shopping centers remain with excessive empty spaces.

  • Jobs bill doesn’t cut Social Security, Medicare

     Politicians and their supporters often get the facts regarding complicated bills muddled, and deliver misleading information to the public.
    In a letter supporting U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney’s opposition to the American Jobs Act, Nicholas Pasquine states that the bill cuts $175 billion annually out of Social Security and Medicare.

  • Lancaster team supports Santorum for presiden

    One Republican candidate has gathered a lot of support here in Lancaster County.
    Former Sen. Rick Santorum has the most impressive support team list of any candidate. These volunteers have all expressed that it is Santorum’s consistency, experience, conservatism, faith and leadership that have played a very large role in why they all have chosen to stand behind the senator as their pick for the Republican preferential primary Jan. 21.
    Here is the Lancaster County for Rick Santorum team:
    u State chair – S.C. Sen. Greg Gregory

  • Do not underestimate S.C; it can choose leaders

    South Carolina has always been the first in the South to lead. We have never allowed other states to dictate our resolve and we have always been ready to defend it.
    One need only to remember the American Revolution, when the British thought South Carolina would be an easy fight:
    Ten British ships with 318 cannon opened fire on a tiny fort in Charleston called Fort Moultrie.
    Inside were just 344 Continental soldiers with a handful of militia, 30 cannons and a number of South Carolina’s best sharpshooters.

  • Romney has not served this nation well

    I would urge anyone who is considering voting for Mitt Romney to go online and watch the video describing his time as CEO of a private equity firm that bought up and sold off small plants and factories (go to www.winningourfuture.com ).

  • Congress needs to do what’s best for country, not itself

    As our society becomes more apathetic, due to our government looking out for themselves and not the people of the United States, we will see the country and society become less able to handle or solve its problems.
    I just read that the “Super Committee” couldn’t come to an agreement on what or where to cut spending to get to the $1.2 trillion they were expected to achieve, so they just go on to say they can’t settle this and walk away from their responsibility to the country.
