    Jewelry stolen at Folk Art Show

    The recent Folk Art Show and sale at the University of South Carolina at Lancaster was a great success. There was an abundance of art, food and music. Everyone had a great time and it was well organized. There are definitely a large number of people in the area interested in folk art and plenty of talented artists to quench one’s appetite for some unique art forms.

  • Kershaw Parade Committee grateful for help

    On behalf of the Parade Committee of the Kershaw Chamber of Commerce, we would like to thank  everyone involved for making the Kershaw Christmas Parade a success this year. Without each of you who worked and participated, this event would not have happened.  Each entry this year was so special and well thought out. We want to commend you for a job well done and we look forward to working to with you again next year.

    We want to thank Operation Rudolph and Larry Catledge for their participation and all this organization has done to help so many children in our community.

  • Recovery process will not be quick

    South Carolina is the last to go into a recession and the last to go out. That was what S.C. Chamber of Commerce President Otis Rawl Jr. told those attending a recent legislative breakfast at the Bradley Arts & Sciences building at the University of South Carolina of Lancaster.

    Rep. Jimmy Neal, Senator-elect Mick Mulvaney and U.S. Congressman John Spratt echoed Rawl’s sentiments.

    The legislators shared similar concerns about the economy and what needed to be done to recover from what has been billed the worst recession since World War II.

  • Crawford deserves medal for fair play

    Van Wyck native and former Indian Land High School state track champion Shawn Crawford has displayed a flamboyant style during his highly successful track and field career.

    The day he signed with Clemson University to run track for the Tigers in the media center at the old Indian Land High School, Crawford donned a University of North Carolina basketball jersey.

  • Santa Train great gift to county

    For many years, Santa Claus has traveled by his much touted sleigh and reindeer, led by Rudolph, “the red nosed” one. But through the generosity of the Lancaster and Chester Railway, headquartered in Lancaster, this year Santa arrived in Heath Springs by a unique method, one he enjoyed along with lots of other folks. Santa Clans arrived on an L&C train.

  • Always tell your loved ones how much they mean to you

    The hardest part of life is losing your child. Our hearts go out to anyone who has ever lost a child.

  • We need to find solution to economic problems

    Lancaster County used to have it all. Now everything is slowly going away. For example, there used to be a skating rink, now there isn’t. The same can be said for jobs, companies and entertainment. It all is dulling out and going away. Lancaster is nothing now, compared to what it used to be 15-20 years ago. More and more of the younger people aren’t going to have much to stay here for in the job, business and entertainment area. For many young people, the only ties here are family and friends.

  • Obama, his family, our country need our prayers

    The Rev. Steve Stewart found it necessary to let the public know in an editorial column that he is not a racist. He backed this statement up by saying that he voted for Alan Keyes, a black candidate who ran as an independent. This is a problem for me because I believe in the famous Mark Twain quote, “All that glitters is not gold.”

    Why couldn’t the reverend just say what he had to say without bringing up Obama’s ethnicity? Rev. Stewart said that America has turned its back on God; he never mentioned how he came to that conclusion.
