  • County loses every time council bribes company

    County loses every time council bribes company
    Editor’s note: Lancaster resident Bill Craig wrote the following letter to members of Lancaster County Council.
    I hope you and other members of Lancaster County Council read Will Tindal’s guest column, “Emperor has no clothes,” in the March 9 edition of The Lancaster News.

  • 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.

  • Indian Land pride on display April 2-9

    The first Indian Land Community Clean-up Week set for April 2-9 is a hands-on opportunity to teach children (and folks of all ages) civic responsibility. Indian Land’s scenic byways have become increasingly littered by uncovered garbage trucks, windblown trash from construction sites, loading docks, unsecured recyclables and illegal dumping.

  • Mulvaney not practicing what he preaches

    I find it interesting that Representative “Mick” Mulvaney decided to take advantage of the health care available to congressional members.
    This plan is heavily subsidized with broad choices, generous provisions and low premiums.  
    This is available at lower rates because it has about 8 million policyholders nationwide.
    This situation reflects the unfairness and uncaring attitude that has been demonstrated by many politicians, most of whom are members of the Republican Party.

  • Volatile statements could incite criminal acts

    In a recent letter to shareholders, Warren Buffet, Berkshire Hathaway chairman, said he has some money to spend on new assets for his company. He reported he has $38 billion in cash to invest.
    “Our elephant gun has been reloaded and my trigger finger is itchy,” Buffet said.
    What can the man mean by making such a volatile statement that could incite serious criminal activity?
    Sarah Palin made a similar comment about targeting Congressional districts and she was unmercifully attacked by the liberal media.
