  • 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.

  • 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.

    “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. 

  • Local youth have many opportunities in Lancaster

    Linda Blackmon-Brace

    I am so appreciative of The Lancaster News for listing all of the programs provided by various organizations within our community as tools of learning for our children. Because my focus was primarily on my own summer program during the last seven years, I was not aware of the vast resources available, free of charge, to our youth.
