  • Writer questions costs of projects

    I would like to thank Will Tindal for his column, “Emperor has no clothes.” Taxpayers need to know what is going on with their money.
    County Council needs to remember where they came from before they give our tax dollars away. I was at the action council meeting on March 7 and overheard Keith Tunnel, president of Lancaster County Economic Development Corp., patting himself on the back about Lancaster County having four projects going on at the same time. He said this has never happened before. I never heard about what it cost taxpayers.

  • Honest debate not an option anymore

    In Ken Blinko’s recent letter, he said that I call the left “disgusting” and “insane” shutting down debate right away. Yes, the word “disgusting” was used, but in regard to when the left came right out, without any facts, and blamed conservatives for the Arizona shooting. Sorry, but the word fits when you do something like that.
    As for the word “insane,” I didn’t call the left insane, though many would, I used it in the context of them trying to connect the incident to Sarah Palin, the Tea Party and such.

  • Old-fashioned still beautiful

    It was sad to read that the flower beds in front of City Hall on South Catawba Street must be removed. Many of us recall, through the years, the hours Jo Williams spent lovingly caring for the beds and roses. She devoted much of her life to the beautification and historical preservation of Lancaster.
    I hope that some of the roses she planted, or at least one, can be retained and displayed in memory of Jo Williams, the “Rose Lady.”
    Old-fashioned is still beautiful!

  • My weekend with Alexa

    I had the pleasure of attending a special choir performance where my granddaughter Alexa Haynes sang in the S.C. Honor Choir.
    Her mother, Kathi Haynes, and I traveled with her to Charleston at the Convention Center. I was very proud of Alexa. This was Alexa’s second year auditioning and receiving the honor to participate in this event.
    The Elementary Division of the S.C. Music Educators Association on Feb. 5, presented the S.C. Honor Choir for their annual invitational Honor Choir Performance.

  • Prinicipal thanks community for support

    I want to offer sincere appreciation to the local media, area churches, businesses and the community of Indian Land for your generosity and support.
    The students and staff of Indian Land Middle School are fortunate to work and learn in such a caring community and our success is a direct reflection of the partnerships we have created and share.  

  • Rising gas prices impacts cost of everything

    You know for the past few years I have been sharing some of my growing-up experiences with readers of The Lancaster News.
    Now it is time for me to share a few grown-up thoughts. Recently, I made a couple of business trips, which covered the area from Greenwood, Clinton, Ware Shoals and Waterloo down to Aiken, Graniteville, Bath, Lexington and North Augusta. That is a lot of territory. I saw numerous closed textile plants and some businesses with boarded windows.

  • Student seeks help with school projec

    My name is Lucy Barragan. I am a fifth-grade student at Napa Valley Language Academy in Napa, Calif.  My class is doing state reports and I have chosen your beautiful state, South Carolina, to feature in my report. I would like to get pamphlets, post cards, souvenirs or anything that can be useful information about South Carolina.

  • What I can do to help

    As a young leader at school, I can always be kind and respectful to my friends and teachers. I pick my friends based on whether or not they are nice, not because of their color. I have friends of all races. Dr. King wanted everyone to be treated the same, no matter what color they are.

  • Becoming a great leader

    As a young leader at my school and church, I can be kind and respectful to everyone. Once a month, I help serve food to the homeless at my church. I know that Dr. King cared about the poor and hungry.
    My family donates toys and food during the holidays to shelters. This makes me happy because other children will have food to eat and new toys to play with.
    I am a member of the Multicultural Committee at school, where I learn about other cultures and religions.
