Promise Neighborhood tackles 15 homes on Clinton Avenue

By Emily Pollok

Mary Esther Culvert swept her front porch last Wednesday after volunteers had finished stripping her house to prep it for painting.
A beaming smile spread across her face as she described the color she picked for the exterior of her home.
“I’m so overwhelmed with happiness and gratefulness,” said Culvert.
The Clinton Avenue resident was selected to have her home repaired and updated as part of Lancaster’s Promise Neighborhood project, which aims to improve the lives of residents in the Clinton Elementary attendance zone.

Time to vaccinate horses

From release 

COLUMBIA — A five-milligram mosquito can slay a 1,000-pound horse in a matter of days. All it needs is the right virus.

The horse can survive the attack. All it needs is the right vaccine at the right time.

Now is the right time.

“Last year in South Carolina, we had 10 cases of West Nile Virus in horses and another nine of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE),” said Sean Eastman, director of field services for the Animal Health Programs branch of Clemson University Livestock-Poultry Health.

Lancaster Democrat throws herself into statewide campaign

Norrell’s greatest skill: Connecting

By Hal Millard

Retired couple Carol Edens and Ed Epps chatted with Democratic gubernatorial candidate James Smith for a few minutes Wednesday at an Irish pub in Spartanburg.
Then Edens asked about “that 15-year-old girl” who was campaigning with him for lieutenant governor.
“Oh, she’s young,” Smith said. “But she’s a good egg, with an old soul.”
Smith moved on, and Mandy Powers Norrell sat down at their table with a bright, wide smile, locking eyes individually with the man and then the woman.

USDA lends Upper Palmetto Y $296,000 for Indian Land facility

By Kayla Vaughn

Indian Land is one step closer to getting its own YMCA.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced May 16 that it is loaning Upper Palmetto YMCA nearly $300,000 to help pay for a 74,000-square-foot YMCA, with an outdoor sports and play area on more than 15 acres.
The facility is expected to bring in more than 120 jobs, according to the USDA release.
Lancaster County Councilman Brian Carnes says the USDA loan may be enough to get the project moving in the right direction, but just buying the land could cost at least $1.5 million.

Buford cadets place flags on vets’ graves

‘It’s important to understand they risked everything for us’

By Greg Summers

Thursday classes ended at 11:30 a.m. for Buford High, but the learning continued for seven of its JROTC cadets.
They spent much of the midday under a baking sun placing American flags on the markers of military veterans buried at Lancaster’s Memorial Park in preparation for Sunday’s annual Memorial Day Ceremony. And they volunteered to do it.
The significance of the task wasn’t lost on 16-year-old Dakota “Blaze” Hegler.

Weed worse than kudzu? If you see it, call experts

Tom Hallman
Clemson University

CLEMSON – Just as the weather warms, they pop their ugly heads out of hiding. But thank goodness they do, because now is the best time to find them so they can be destroyed.
The flowers of cogongrass are in bloom now, helping the invasive weed resume its aggressive spread to new fields and forests. Left unchecked, cogongrass will form dense stands over large areas and choke out native plants, doing untold damage to local ecology and to farmers’ fields.
