    On behalf of the Lancaster County Outreach Project and Lancaster County Partners for Youth, I’d like to thank the community so much for whole-heartedly embracing the Outreach Project since it started two years ago.

    Editor’s note: Lancaster resident Bill Craig wrote the following letter to members of Lancaster County Council.
    I hope you and other members of Lancaster County Council read Will Tindal’s guest column, “Emperor has no clothes,” in the March 9 edition of The Lancaster News.

  • Mound of garbage won’t improve our economy

    There has been much written concerning Griffin Brothers Enterprises and its proposal for a solid waste landfill on the site on Mineral Mining Road where they already have an industrial landfill.
    One of their proposed enticements to Lancaster County officials was the olive branch of a $20 million investment and the promise of creating 15-20 permanent jobs for Lancaster residents at minimum wages mostly.
    Imagine, Lancaster residents being the proud owners of $20 million worth of household garbage and lots of that hauled in from North Carolina.

    I had the pleasure of attending a special choir performance where my granddaughter Alexa Haynes sang in the S.C. Honor Choir.

  • IL Middle School shows its character

    Indian Land Middle School has character and it has the awards to prove it.
    IL Middle School was recently selected as a S.C. School of Character for the second consecutive year.
    The School of Character designation is presented by the S.C. Department of Education for outstanding school climate and academic performance.
    The school’s latest award is special in that Indian Land Middle was the only state school to earn the prestigious honor.
    The School of Character designation is good for three years before the school must reapply.

  • Mulvaney explains what government shutdown means

    There’s been a lot of talk recently in political circles about a possible “government shutdown.” I thought it would be a good idea to explain what is really going on, why we are even discussing a shutdown and what that means for you.

  • Rising gas prices impacts cost of everything

    You know for the past few years I have been sharing some of my growing-up experiences with readers of The Lancaster News.
    Now it is time for me to share a few grown-up thoughts. Recently, I made a couple of business trips, which covered the area from Greenwood, Clinton, Ware Shoals and Waterloo down to Aiken, Graniteville, Bath, Lexington and North Augusta. That is a lot of territory. I saw numerous closed textile plants and some businesses with boarded windows.
