Blue and gold stars of Lancaster High School winter sports drew the spotlight, with the Class AAA state champion LHS girls basketball team leading the way on Wednesday, March 18 in the school’s auditorium.
The Lancaster County School District and University of South Carolina Lancaster are working on a possible expansion of their existing dual enrollment program that allows high school students to earn college credit.
The Feb. 25 rebuttal letter by James McManus, “Walker should run for vice president,” to Brooks Walkers’ Feb. 22 column, “Time to love country more than Obama,” is pathetic.
Because he has no facts on his side, Mr. McManus uses the old leftist alternative of vilifying anyone who disagrees with Obama as “hating the president.”
He says, “We can argue about the economy, employment and terrorism.”
My name is Chaundra Fletcher. I am a member of North Corner AME Zion Church in Lancaster. I am very active in social activities that involve the homeless, hungry and children.
I have worked in social services for the last eight years. During this time, I have learned much about the abuse and neglect of children, as well as victimization of women. I have also learned much about poverty.
It seems that the laws continue to change without any regard to those who are less fortunate. I would dare to say that many people today would be considered working poor.
I just can’t believe all the trash along the roads in Indian Land I saw this morning.
I’ve only seen one sign by Aldi about adopting a highway and stopping littering. What good is that?
The area along U.S. 521 has beautiful trees and shrubs and flowers and then you have tons of trash. This is not just along U.S. 521 either.
Lancaster County should place signs with $500 penalties for littering and strictly enforce it.
Recently, there have been a couple of columns in The Lancaster News and Carolina Gateway regarding the county budgeting process.
Mainly those concerns have dealt with funding for public safety (specifically for the sheriff, solicitor and public defender’s offices) and the appropriations and expenditures of excess funds from the 2013-14 budget. The implication was that these funds should be used for adding additional staff to these departments. I will be the first to state that these departments are a very important core function of government.
