Four points to address in Hillary Clinton’s debt-free education plan.
Before I state anything I would like to point out that this debt-free plan appears to only cover tuition costs. Here are direct quotes from her plan found at Hillary.com, followed by my own translation of her comments. 1. “She will make a major investment in HBCUs, Minority-Serving Institutions and other low-cost, modest-endowment private schools so that these deserving students also benefit from the lower cost of college.”
Andrew Jackson, Buford and Indian Land high school seniors had the opportunity to apply to S.C. colleges for free this week during school hours.
Students could apply to 32 colleges, which included two- and four-year schools. Colleges offer students application fee waivers during the fall through SCCANGO, a campaign to promote a college-going culture.
Police are looking for the vandal or vandals who damaged 11 scarecrows displayed downtown this week for Crows on Main, an annual Halloween scarecrow competition.
Joe Timmons, events and promotions manager for the city of Lancaster, said the vandalism happened Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.
“We think it was somebody trying to be funny, but it’s not very funny,” Timmons said. “I think this is the first time it’s ever been this bad.”
CLEMSON – More Southeastern peaches will be grown organically thanks to a $1 million federal grant awarded to Clemson University.

If you’re planning to use the mail to vote absentee in the Nov. 8 general election, do it as soon as possible, Lancaster County elections officials said Thursday.
Hurricane Matthew and the U.S. Postal Service being closed Monday for Columbus Day have caused mail delays. As of Thursday, the county’s Voter Registration and Elections Office had not received any completed absentee ballots by mail.
Fire destroyed the popular Chester’s Cove Seafood Restaurant on Cochran Bypass in Chester late Wednesday night.
The Chester Fire Department responded to the call about 11:30 p.m., with the fire already well under way. Fire Chief Paul Caldwell said the building was a total loss. The fire’s cause is still under investigation.
I am disgusted with how Donald Trump is conducting his campaign.
I have watched him encourage people in the audience to physically attack protesters. I have watched him shake his hands, his body and make facial gestures to make fun of a disabled person. And when I saw women on stage wearing shirts asking Trump to touch private parts of their body, I was sick to my stomach.
And yet we have a Lancaster pastor claiming that as disgusted as he is with both Trump and Hillary Clinton, he will vote for Trump because he doesn’t want Clinton to be elected.
After working on the document for 20 months, the Lancaster County Planning Commission has sent the 54-page revised Unified Development Ordinance to county council with no recommendation, positive or negative.
The motion to approve the UDO, the document that spells out the county’s zoning and development regulations, received a 3-3 vote in the commission’s special meeting Monday night. It was the second such meeting in two months.
