Today's Opinions

  • Bundy ready to apply work ethic to council

    On Tuesday, June 12, the people of District 3 will go the polls to vote for their representative on County Council. In making this decision, they need to weigh out who is best able to analyze the complex issues coming before council, who is best able to manage the county’s budget needs and, ultimately, who will best serve as the representative of the entire District 3.
    I am running to be the person who represents District 3 on Lancaster County Council and would appreciate your support and your vote next Tuesday.

  • Kersey’s roots run deep in District 3

    It would be a great honor to serve as county councilman for Lancaster County District 3. My roots run deep in District 3. My grandmother, Levy Watts, was born in Oak Hill and my grandfather, Dwight Thompson Wright, was born and raised in Tradesville.
    My ancestors had a farm in the Oak Hill community for more than 100 years. My wife and I own that very farm today.
    During my four years on council (2005-2008):

  • Senate makes progress during spring session

    So far, this session of the S.C. General Assembly has been productive. I’m pleased with the progress that has been made on several fronts, including improving the structure of state government. Listed below are some issues, both large and small, that we have been addressing.
    Crush and run
    If you own an old car and it is stolen, chances are it’s heading to a scrap yard. Nine out of 10 cars stolen in South Carolina are eight years old or older. They can be sold to scrap dealers without proof of ownership.

  • Vote Carnes for experience

    On Tuesday, June 12, the residents of the northern part of Indian Land have a chance to participate in an historic event. We will be voting in the Republican primary to choose a county councilman to represent our growing area. (You can go to my website, www.carnesfor council.com, to see a map of the new district.) I would count it a privilege to receive your vote on that Tuesday.
    Remember, “Every vote counts; let your voice be heard!”

  • Vote Holt for ‘positive change’

    Indian Land voters in the newly created District 7 will have the opportunity next week to select their representative for Lancaster County Council.  Since no Democrat or independent candidate has filed for the newly created council seat, the winner of the Republican primary will almost certainly become our representative for the next four years. Regardless of your party affiliation (if you have one), you can request a Republican ballot on June 12.  It will not affect your ability to vote as you choose in future elections.  

  • Liberals are trying to take our freedoms

    Here we go. The Liberals are sinking their claws in. I moved to South Carolina 18 months ago. I grew up in Rhode Island and for 50 years I watched a once great place to live get destroyed by liberal views that are forced upon the citizens.

  • Habitat is grateful for assistance

    Habitat for Humanity of Lancaster County would like everyone to know how grateful we are for the wonderful community support we received for our first annual Holes for Homes Golf Tournament on April 26. With your help, we raised $4,800 to help us complete our renovation home located at Penny Street.

  • Festival organizers thankful for supporters

    On behalf of the city of Lancaster, I would like to say thank you to everyone who spent May 18 and 19 in our beautiful city at the third annual Red Rose Festival.
