  • Maintaining our roads essential to economy

    In his most recent column, Mr. J.R. Wilt objects to the county road maintenance fee being increased by $5, from $25 to $30. I strongly disagree. Lancaster County residents have complained about the poor condition of our roads for years. While this increase will not improve the condition of our state-maintained roads, it will improve the condition of our county-maintained roads.
    I support the proposed road maintenance fee increase, and I encourage all residents of Lancaster County to do the same. For the record, my home is located on a state-maintained road.

  • McDonald: Thanks for support

    As I complete my final days as principal of Indian Land Middle School and we close another school year, I wanted to take the opportunity thank you for the many years of support provided to Indian Land Middle School – specifically the students and staff – and to me. For the last six years, I have had the honor to serve as the first principal of ILMS and while there were challenges, there have been so many more amazing moments of celebration.
