  • Indian Land needs its own post office

    In agreement with William Chick’s letter in the May 13 Carolina Gateway, Indian Land certainly needs it’s own post office instead of all these little stations they are opening up that cannot do the job of a real post office.

    Indian Land is growing fast between customers, new stores opening up, apartments and new homes. The Fort Mill post office cannot handle all of this and should not have to deliver to Indian Land.

  • Don’t we pay enough taxes already?

    Finding ways to tax must be a politician’s delight. During elections, they tell us they want to work to lower our taxes, but once in office they find ways to tax us more, and then try and explain to us why more money is needed. 

    Take impact fees: An impact  fee is a fee that is imposed by a local government on a new or proposed development project to pay for all or a portion of the costs of providing public services to the new development.

  • Roads, ethics, more top legislative agenda

    As the S.C. General Assembly approaches the end of the first year of the two-year session, much remains to be done. Finding additional funding for our roads, overhauling ethics laws and strengthening penalties for criminal domestic violence are the issues receiving the most attention.

    To date, though, resolution has yet to be reached on any. What follows will bring you up to speed on those issues as well as some others legislators are debating this year.

  • Our View: Congrats to the class of 2015

    Graduates from all four county high schools – Andrew Jackson, Buford, Indian Land and Lancaster, as well as Carolina Christian Academy – will cross stages to receive their diplomas today.

  • Noble column: Fix higher education so grads can dream big

    Back many years ago when I graduated from high school, my father made me a promise that changed my life and we should make the same promise to all of our children in South Carolina.
    As a callow youth with my brand-spanking-new diploma in hand, I was simply excited about graduating and looking forward to celebrating with my friends. But before things got too far out of hand, my father pulled me aside, looked me straight in the eye and made me a serious and solemn promise.
