  • Column: Outreach Project thanks supporters for helping foster kids, many others

    The Lancaster County Outreach Project and Lancaster County DSS want to thank our many community supporters for all they did to make 2017 a success.

    It was quite a year. We feel lucky to have so many new partnerships, new opportunities to impact the community, new ideas implemented and donations received.

    Here are some of the year’s highlights.

  • I slam down the phone and stomp out of the newsroom

    I slam the phone down, grab my coat and storm out of the newsroom.

    Another gatekeeper has just told me that someone I desperately need to talk to is “unavailable.”

    Well, what’s new?

    I just have to laugh at how ridiculous this is. Again my job being made difficult because I’m blocked from getting information from public officials.

  • Letter: Misleading Indian Land signs are promising voters too much

    The vote on incorporating the town of Indian Land has been set for Tuesday, March 27. The vote will be yes or no.

    Please try and get the facts. I personally don’t understand what the facts are on why a group wants me to vote yes. My opinion: It started with someone being denied a zoning permit. 

    I have called the state and some elected officials, and here is what I got from them. The county of Lancaster will not lower your taxes. 

  • Column: Let’s look at IL town vote through lens of our history

    With Indian Land and the Panhandle growing so rapidly, it is now home to many newcomers from all over the country.
    I am constantly meeting transplants from the Midwest and Northeast. They have a lot of questions about this incorporation vote on March 27, and they don’t know a lot about the history of our region.
