  • S.C. exports are not as rosy as Mulvaney reports

    U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney’s recent article  (Sept. 7 Carolina Gateway) is yet another example of partisanship at its best.
    The dictionary defines the word “partisan” as “one exhibiting blind, prejudiced and unreasoning allegiance.” Our politicians are partisan at the expense of you and me and they have allegiance to only their party, again at our expense.

  • House members take real action on creating jobs

    On Sept. 8, President Barack Obama unveiled yet another stimulus plan, this one called the American Jobs Act. Like the Stimulus Act of 2009, his new $450 billion proposal seems more designed to satisfy the spending urges of the White House than to create jobs and real economic growth.

  • Attend job fair Saturday

    This Saturday residents of Lancaster County and the surrounding area will have an opportunity to attend a job fair from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Adult Education Center, formerly the Barr Street High School facility, at 610 E. Meeting St.

  • Lakeview Landing here before concrete plants

    Thank you, Indian Land residents, for your outpouring of support in our effort to have Thomas Concrete held to the letter of the law in Lancaster County. Your efforts forced their lawyers to alter their strategy and postpone the appeal date of Sept. 15 to Oct. 11 or possibly a circuit court hearing.

  • Our school district blessed to have talented teachers

    The late Pat Bufford. Robbie Lou Chesser. Mary Ester Faile. Tom McDuffie. Erlinda Broughton. Carolyn Jordan. Deborah Keenan. Jane Roscoe. Linda Easley.  Carolyn Petroski. Bob Bundy. Anne Seegars.
    These are the names of a few, and only of a few, of some of the most influential people ever to enter my life – teachers.
    These people taught me far more than algebra, English, history or chemistry.
    They helped develop my character, creativity, charisma and a craving for learning that persists today.

  • Second-tier events help Performing Arts Series

    The Performing Arts Series has been a popular event at the University of South Carolina Lancaster’s Bundy Auditorium.
    Few can find little to complain about in the events, which have featured quality entertainment here sponsored by See Lancaster, SC, which oversees the PAS.
    “The complaint I hear almost daily is the cost of tickets,” said Jimola Wade, who manages the Performing Arts Series. “Our community has spoken and I want them to know that I’m listening. I can’t change things overnight, but I’m working hard at it.”

  • County trying to suppress property owners’ rights

    County trying to suppress property owners’ rights

    Dear Friends of Indian Land, or enemies of business,

     I am writing this letter in reply to the insanity of a few who are trying to destroy local business and property owners in our community, relating to the zoning issue with the concrete plants in an industrial park. 

  • Neal, Legislature got it wrong on Amazon deal

    A  few months ago, the state of South Carolina was divided by  a fierce debate. Internet giant Amazon wanted to relocate to Lexington and bring thousands of new jobs to the area.
