  • 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.

  • I am writing in response to the letter to the editor written by Tierra Stewart. She wrote about the guest editorial written by the New Horizon Community Church pastor, Steve Stewart. It is obvious she does not know him. I am writing to her and the others who may not know him.

  • 25 years of Thanksgiving fellowship

    In 1983, members of the faith community in Liberty Hill decided they would hold an annual get together to celebrate Thanksgiving.  That was the beginning of a multi-cultural, multi-race, non-denominational event that culminating in hundreds of folks – African American, Caucasian and Native American – gathering at the Liberty Hill Community Center recently for the silver anniversary event.
