  • Guest Column: S.C. needs to defend Electoral College

    How should we elect the president of the United States?
    This was a settled question for most of American history, but today the system is under attack. A California-based campaign wants to throw out the old rules and replace them with a system that would benefit the biggest cities, dismiss small states like South Carolina and create new opportunities for stolen elections.

  • Guest Column: Public agencies in S.C. spend $1M to lobby state officials

    For the first half of this year, North Myrtle Beach agreed to pay a total of $120,000 to a lobbying firm to “work with” the legislature and governor’s office on the city’s behalf, including a push for a law allowing a local sales tax for infrastructure projects, according to a retainer agreement.

  • Guest Column: Senior year coincides with 9/11 anniversary

    At my house we are entering another senior year. As senior years go, I consider myself fairly experienced. I’ve relished in and endured a handful so far (if we’re counting my own and my husband’s). And that’s only high school. College is another story.
    But this senior year is special, and not just because my last and final child is (hopefully) graduating in the spring. This senior year is special because of what happened to all of us 18 years ago.

  • Retired Marine buys Leigh Ann’s

    After being run by a mother, and then her son, for almost 40 years, Lancaster institution Leigh Ann’s has found a new owner.
    But the popular downtown restaurant won’t be changing much from what regulars know and love, said Greg Lusk, who bought the business back in July and wants to continue its tradition of good food and great service.
    Lusk, an Indian Land resident who grew up in Austin, Texas, recently retired from the Marine Corps and discovered Leigh Ann’s when he started thinking about running his own restaurant.

  • Tales over ale at new IL brewery

    INDIAN LAND – David Tonkery started out brewing beer in his garage, but what began as a hobby for the brew-lover has now become a business.
    Lore Brewing Co. – David and Danielle Tonkery’s first business venture – is set to open early this fall and will be the first brewery to set up shop in Indian Land.  
    The couple, who moved to Indian Land in 2012, realized there was a market for the business in their hometown, which has experienced tremendous growth in the past few years and doesn’t seem to be slowing down.

  • Winderl captures first race win

    Saturday was a night to remember at Lancaster Motor Speedway, as four track legends were inducted into the LMS Hall of Fame, and driver Andy Winderl posted his first checkers.
    By far, the most popular inductee was Knox Bailey as drivers, fans, crew members and staff cheered him during his speech.

    INDIAN LAND – The York Cougars hit the road, looking for their first win of the season, the first win for Dean Boyd as York head coach, and revenge.
    The Class AAAA Cougars dropped a 14-9 home loss to the upstart Warriors last season, but York used a strong running game and tough defense to deny an ILHS repeat Friday night at Warrior Stadium.

  • Panel stays the same after misses of six

    Week three in the Picks was about one number – six.
    Six of the seven panelists each had six misses, a 14-6 showing for the week.
    That meant Picks leader Eric “The Red” Rowell kept his top spot for another week, with the rest of the panel holding their positions.
    Crazy fact was that among the six panelists who missed six each, they were off on different games in the list.
    Like the football bounces, all going in different ways.

  • Fort Mill foils Bruins, 24-14

    FORT MILL – Lancaster, at 0-3, hasn’t had the ball bounce its way much this season.
    Friday night at Fort Mill High School’s Bob Jones Stadium, it didn’t get better.
    “We had a little bit of luck, and we capitalized on it,” Fort Mill head coach Rob McNeely said after his Yellow Jackets notched a 24-14 win over Lancaster.
    Both teams entered at 0-2, but Fort Mill, making the most of its breaks, emerged the victor, and LHS the tough-luck victim.
