  • Accident victim grateful for help

    We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude for the many acts of kindness shown during the motorcycle accident that occurred on Jan. 25, on Great Falls Highway. Thanks for the prompt response shown by the owner of  Tire Depot, EMS workers, fire departments, bystanders and a special thanks to Malcolm Benson for praying with me as I was pinned under the car.
    Thanks to The Lancaster News for your exemplary coverage of the accident, which helped me to engage the community in prayer on my behalf.

  • Robinson family grateful for support

    The family of Rose Dunlap Robinson would like to thank everyone who extended their love, prayers and donations during the “love benefit” program sponsored by the First Washington Baptist Church family.

  • We want better access not worse

    A pair of bills being debated in the S.C. House illustrate the ongoing tension between those who would open government up for all to see and those who seek to close its doors to pesky outsiders.
    The first would outrageously clamp the door firmly shut on a wide swath of law enforcement records. The second would helpfully ease the path for citizens who seek to learn more about their government.

  • S.C. Legislature and lobbyist – free lunch

    Recently, I did a column about lobbyists and the S.C. Legislature, and from what I hear, it created quite a stir.
    Folks were outraged that there were so many lobbyists making so much money to influence our elected officials. This column is about how they do their lobbying business over free food and liquor.

  • 2012 chamber awards reflect county’s pride

    We are Lancaster! pride was prevalent at the annual Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce’s recent annual meeting.
    The evening was a festive occasion, with the highlight, a source of pride in our community, the annual awards.
    A host of honorees reflect the “we care” attitude in Lancaster County.
    The Chamber’s coveted Volunteer of the Year Award was presented to Tommy Cauthen, of Cauthen Motors.
    Cauthen is a fixture at community events often working behind the scenes, but his tireless effort is to make the event a success.

  • Indian Land could become Cherry Road

    Yes sir, “We are Lancaster.” As one of our folks in Indian Land says. “We are the most confusing place.”
    All I can say is, “Honey, I was born in this confusing place 79 years ago and it’s still confusing.”  Growing up, I quickly found out that it was just as far up the road to Mr. Pettus’s Cotton Gin as it was down the road from his  cotton gin.

  • Writer shares thoughts on Lancaster residents

    A couple of thoughts about some folks in Lancaster County:
    u I’m wondering how it’s working out at Lancaster County EMS since Lanny Bernard and Donald Hyatt left a year ago. I guess someone thought it was better to put someone else in charge. Now that person is gone. What’s the deal there?

  • Seniors appreciate shoeboxes

    I would like to say a special thank you to everyone who donated gifts to the “Shoebox for Seniors” project in December 2011. The project is sponsored each year by the Lancaster County Council on Aging.
