  • Wreck victim, family grateful for help

    I want to say thank you to our fire department, ambulance service and rescue service people. Their fast response and great work saved the life of our granddaughter, Amber McManus.
    She was in a wreck on Dec. 1, 2010. They prepared her to be airlifted to CMC on the scene. They wasted no time to get her ready. It was a great job.

  • County needs to fix all roads – not just IL

    I am writing to complain about the condition of Taxahaw Road in Lancaster and Kershaw counties. This road runs from S.C. 903 in Lancaster across to S.C. 265 in Kershaw. I have lived off of Taxahaw Road for the past 20 years and it has always been in bad shape.
    Other than a few tar patches now and then by the S.C. Department of Transportation, there has not been anything done to this road to significantly improve it.
    Ever since the last major accumulation of snow in this area, this road has been in worse shape than ever.

  • Indian Land – let your voice be heard

    Melvin Threatt said in the story, “Mulvaney backing Gregory at Sun City,” in the Feb. 4 edition of The Lancaster News that Sun City was the place to be if you are a candidate. Threatt, who organized the event at Sun City, went on to say, “If you want votes, this is where you should be.”
    Mr. Threatt, I must say that I am an Indian Land native, and I also hope, that I am a voice for many Indian Land natives.

  • Lancaster needs Gregory in redistricting battle

    A recent writer stated he was “mystified” why Greg Gregory wanted to run for Senate again. Perhaps he would be interested to know that every 10 years after the census is taken, the lines for Senate districts are redrawn based on changes in population.

  • Carnes wants to change dynamics of S.C. Senate

  • Elyse’s death should not be forgotten

    This letter is in response to the letter to the editor, “No Need to Bring up Previous Fatalities.”   I am Susan Hardin, mother of the late Elyse Rebecca Hardin. The car crash that took Elyse’slife has been mentioned in several articles since her death. I would first like to state that I speak only for our family. I would never be so disrespectful as to speak for the other families who have also lost a child. They continue to be in our thoughts and prayers daily.

  • Landfill opponent appreciates support

    I would like to thank everyone who had any part in helping us get where we are in the Mining Road Solid Waste Landfill process. We still need your prayers and support because the landfill process is not over by any means.
    The landfill will mess up a beautiful view from the White Bluff Church front porch. It will eventually cause the eastern part of Lancaster to die because we already have a maximum-security prison and a gold mine that has bought thousands of acres of land. No one wants to live in such an environment.

  • We need new leadership in Senate

    Brian Carnes is a successful small-businessman, and I think those who make it in the business world are the real leaders and voices of our state and country. They know how to take a risk and build upon it.
    They have the common sense to make right decisions when serving in government, not just the politically correct decisions to get re-elected again and again or move up the food chain as many in office have done.

  • Carnes will represent District 16 well

    I am so happy that Brian Carnes is running for the S.C. Senate District 16 seat. It is time to get a new face in Columbia. 

    We need someone who will actually care about the people they serve and I truly believe that Brian is that person.

    Brian is a person of integrity, a team player and a person with a strong and proven work ethic. He has been representing the people in District 16 very well already, serving as a school board member for eight years, as a local firefighter and as a local small business owner. 

  • Annexation will impact property values

    Many residents from the Partridge Hill and Forest Hills neighborhoods turned out to comment at the recent Lancaster City Planning Commission meeting. Once again, St. Katherine Properties has applied for annexation into the city with a zoning of R-10.
