  • Mick gets his Walmart in Indian Land

    I’m writing this letter to let everyone in Lancaster County know how our millionaire state senator and candidate for U.S. Congress truly feels about you. I attended the grand opening of the new Lowes in Indian Land and spoke with our Sen. Mick Mulvaney, who was also there for the sawing of a 2x4.
    Our senator told me that now all he needs in Indian Land is a Walmart and he won’t have any reason to drive to Lancaster again.

  • Birchfield says jobs city's top concern

    Election Day is approaching very swiftly and I would like to tell you more about why I should be your choice for mayor of the city Lancaster.
    My name is Donnie Birchfield and I’ve been in Lancaster for 10 years when I married a local girl and relocated from North Carolina.
    I am now a local Baptist pastor and I understand how important first impressions are. I can relate to all types of people and have no problems listening and working together to improve our city.

  • Tillman is a common man with Christian morals

    Mr. Larry Honeycutt: You say you’re a Christian and your daughter, Cami, supports that measure by bashing Philip Tillman.
    Let us look at one issue for a moment. You are the councilman who supported the Blue Law amendment.
    There were several ministers pleading before County Council to keep the Blue Laws.

  • Take look at big picture before voting

    In recent weeks. U.S. Rep. John Spratt, like most liberal Democrats, has abandoned any hope of running for office on his record in Congress.
    He has resorted to personal attacks on his opponent in an effort to divert attention away from the real issues and the failures of the government which he has helped lead.
    Spratt is a Washington establishment politician who has represented the South Carolina 5th District since 1982.

  • Christian morals never left council

    My name is Cami H. Steen and I am one of Lancaster County Councilman Larry Honeycutt’s four daughters. My father is seeking re-election for District 4 County Council, which is my voting district.
    I would first like to say thank you to my father for all of his diligent work over these last four years. He loves Lancaster County and is truly committed to making it a better place to live – right now and for future generations. He is concerned for every citizen of Lancaster County and not just the people in his district.

  • Writer disputes Knapp’s assessment of Mulvaney

    I read with interest the editorial by Frank Knapp Jr., CEO of the S.C. Small Business Chamber of Commerce, that was published in the Oct, 15 edition of The Lancaster News.
    He slanted his article in such a manner that it appeared all South Carolina small business owners had been harmed by Sen. Mick Mulvaney’s decision to vote against legislation brought before both the House and Senate.

  • Usher a natural in his duties

    Jack Usher did his job with little fanfare, but his work as a 911
    dispatcher with the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office was outstanding.
    Usher, who first joined the department as a deputy, devoted half his life – 25 years – to law enforcement.
    Skills he learned as a deputy were used in his later years as a 911
    dispatcher at his post in the sheriff’s office.

  • Time to retire John Spratt

    I wish I could go back to bagging food at the Winn Dixie in Kershaw in 1965. Yes, in 1965 we had the Vietnam War hanging over us like an angry cloud. But we knew if we didn’t go to college we could work at Springs in Lancaster or DuPont in Camden or many other manufacturing jobs in the area. We knew we could feed the kids and raise our families because there were so many options for employment in Lancaster, Kershaw and surrounding counties.
