  • Accident bound to happen on Taxahaw Road

    I want to bring attention to something that is very obvious – Taxahaw Road needs to be paved. The road is an absolute disgrace, especially to those responsible for maintaining it. It is an absolute hazard for those who must travel it. I live off Taxahaw Road and have to travel it daily. Who knew that the simple act of driving down a road could turn into some kind of sick amusement park ride, full of swerves, holes and dodging pieces of asphalt?

  • Lancaster could lose Senate seat if Gregory not elected

    The special election to fill the S.C. Senate District 16 seat will be one of the most important for Lancaster County in recent history. In a few weeks, the General Assembly will begin the redistricting process and redraw the lines for all Senate districts. Currently, half of the district’s residents live in Lancaster and the other half are in York County. Our neighboring county has grown considerably since the last census and will likely gain a Senate seat.

  • Vote for Brann on April 12

    In my opinion, Keith Brann should be elected to serve as our senator for District 16. He has fresh new ideas that would benefit families that desperately need help in these troubled times.
    Mr. Brann supports government accountability, public education, tax reform and term limits.
    I appreciate the fact that he wants to eliminate the tax on clothing.
    This could help families put more food on the table for their children.

  • Indian Land Democratic Club endorses Brann

    The Indian Land Democratic Club is proud to announce its endorsement of Keith Brann for South Carolina Senate, District 16.
    Brann is running on a platform that includes business and job recruitment, tax reform, term limits, spending transparency, support for public education, green technology and open and accountable government.
    As a group of voters, we feel that it is important to elect qualified candidates to public office.

  • Taxpayers need list of incentives offered to new companies

    It’s getting harder and harder to believe anything that our Lancaster County Council says anymore. I’m out and about Lancaster County daily and it seems that other county residents have the same thoughts.
    As I read County Council Chairwoman Kathy Sistare’s column, I was trying to figure out which part was the truth and which wasn’t.

  • Tax day is an opportunity to reflect

     April 15 is a day many of us have come to dread – Tax Day. It’s the deadline for millions of Americans to file their taxes and turn over their hard-earned money to the government. Actually, the federal government extended this year’s tax deadline to April 18.

  • Writer upset about infant left in car

    This is an open letter to the woman who neglected her child at the Murphy gas station on the S.C. 9 Bypass about 5:30 p.m. on March 25. You were driving a green Honda.
    Did you even watch your infant when I was pumping gas and heard him/her screaming from the back seat while you were making your purchase inside the store?
    Did you notice when I looked for you and then when I finished pumping my gas I walked inside and saw you still at the counter while my son watched your car?

  • Couple praises work crew

    Recently, Lancaster County Maintenance Department, special projects, did some work on our road. The work crew spent about three weeks in March working on Leadoff Road replacing pipes in a creek bed under the road continuing onto our property.
    I would like to give John Robinson and his crew a pat on the back. They did an excellent job. We have some good hard workers there. I’m sure they don’t get the recognition they deserve, but this time they are. The guys also were very considerate of us as property owners.

  • Guardian ad Litem seeks volunteers

    In 2010, more than 9,000 South Carolina children were abused or neglected by their own families. The actual figure is probably much higher, as this number represents only those children involved in the family court system. There are cases of abuse or neglect in every county of the state.
    As caring and concerned citizens, we must do everything in our power to protect and nurture these vulnerable children. S.C. law requires a volunteer guardian ad litem be appointed for any child whose family is involved with the Department of Social Services through the family court system.

  • Great American Cleanup set for Saturday

    Indian Land’s participation in the Great American Cleanup kicks off on Saturday, as the Indian Land Community Clean-up Week begins. Volunteers will be throughout the Indian Land community during the week of April 2-9 picking up litter discarded on our local roads. Please slow down and drive carefully when you see volunteers.
