  • Stores help Indian Land second-graders

    On behalf of the Indian Land Elementary School second-grade class, Mrs. Blum, all of the staff at Indian Land and myself, Mary Pettus, we would like to thank Food Lion, Harris Teeter and Walmart for rallying around all of the holidays to support the Indian Land second-grade class.

  • Writer seeks info on Barr Street High

    As a graduate of the Barr Street High School Class of 1969, I am proud to see the position The Lancaster News has taken in regards to Black History Month (formerly Black History Week.)
    A few months ago a group of alumni from various classes, including myself, started a page on Facebook. It is called “Barr Street High.”

  • Time for county to revisit dog ordinances

    By Mary Reimers

  • As a nation we need to repent

    There was a time when America flourished, wealth beyond belief, it was the superpower of all nations. Our own government stated that there was so much money in Social Security, that it didn’t know what it was going to do with it.
    The economy was booming.
    But during the late 1960s, something went horribly wrong. The “Free Love” movement began and the morals of that generation plummeted.

  • No need to reveal deputies' name

    A recent story appeared on the front page, above the fold, of The Lancaster News, re-telling the story of a man being shot at the car wash on Lynwood Drive, but this time you added the names of the two deputies that had answered the 911 call. 

    Now was that necessary? A deputy sheriff is part of a team acting under the orders of the sheriff and other state laws in effect. The action taken by these two deputies certainly appeared to be within their area of responsibility. 

  • Taxahaw Road residents should demand new road

     

    We want to add our input to “County needs to fix all roads - not just Indian Land.” 

    The portion of Taxahaw Road between Antioch Baptist Church and the convenience site has been a terrible road ever since we have lived here. 

    During the 1980s, we operated Melco Cattle Co., and drew visitors from all of the United States. 

    Their first impression of Lancaster was how terrible the roads are. 

  • Residents seek help with Taxahaw Road

    I would like to comment on Paula Laney’s letter about the bad condition of Taxahaw Road. We have lived in the Taxahaw community for 18 years. 

    There has not been any work done on the road except fill some potholes. It was real bad when I came here. 

    Now they are so bad I don’t think they can be fixed. If people did not live on this road, it should be closed. But we must have a way to get out. We now go to Monroe for doctor visits and hospital care. We also do most of our shopping there.

  • McCoy will get things done for this community

    Recently, I noticed that U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney endorsed Greg Gregory for the S.C. Senate District 16 seat. I can say that I voted for Mulvaney in the last election; however I do not believe that this seat needs to be just handed off from one person to another.
    Gregory was a politician in Columbia for 16 years and then he quit. One quote Gregory said in The Lancaster News was, “The longer you are in, the less you pay attention to the people back home.”

  • Gregory has always placed principle over politics

    I have had the opportunity to work with the S.C. General Assembly for the better part of 40 years. Most of this time was spent with the Department of Natural Resources in the Division of Marine Resources. During that time, few members of the General Assembly demonstrated a greater commitment to wildlife, coastal marine and forestry conservation than Greg Gregory.
    His success in the hard-fought battle of wills in 2002 to protect the red drum fish from over-fishing is just one example of his legislative accomplishments.

  • McCoy will be faithful representative of his people

    Rob McCoy is the right man for the S.C. Senate District 16 seat. He has a common-sense approach for government, believing in the fair tax and term limits for serving in political positions.
