  • Reimers letter: Give a shelter pet a foster home

    I have followed with much interest Gloria Davey’s fight for rezoning in order to build a “no-kill” pet shelter in Lancaster County.
    We all know the county-owned shelter is always overloaded and, consequently, more than 4,000 pets are euthanized there each year. I applaud Ms. Davey and her efforts to help find a solution for this. I would stand behind anyone trying to help the pets in whatever way they could.

  • Faile column: Chamber encourages you to vote on Nov. 6

     Jobs have been the No. 1 issue on every candidate’s mind during this year’s election. 

    The Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce co-sponsored two candidate forums this year on the campus of the University of South Carolina Lancaster featuring candidates of local races including Lancaster City Council, school board, Lancaster County council, sheriff, S.C. House District 44 and U.S. House District 5. In every race, jobs and the economy were at the forefront of the discussion. 

  • Coy column: House candidate seeking support from District 44 voters

     

    As you know, Jimmy Neal, longtime State House representative, will be retiring and his seat is up for election this November. 

    I made the decision in November 2011 to run for the District 44 State House seat and would like to share a bit of information about who I am and what my intentions are. 

  • Case column: Case makes his case for sheriff’s office

    would like to take this opportunity to speak with the residents of Lancaster County in regards to my candidacy for the office of Lancaster County sheriff. I am a lifelong resident of Lancaster County. After obtaining my high school diploma, I pursued an education in higher learning, where I obtained degrees in business and management. 

  • Faile column: Sheriff should be nonpartisan race

    Throughout the course of the campaign season, I have been asked why the sheriff’s race is a partisan election. It’s a good question, particularly when you consider that the sheriff is responsible for enforcing the laws, not just those passed by a particular political party. A sheriff does not make the law or adjudicate the law – a sheriff enforces the law.

  • Harper column: District 5 candidate focuses on jobs, property rights

     

     

    On Nov. 6, the residents of Lancaster County District 5 will select their representative for County Council. After owning businesses in Lancaster County for more than 30 years and serving on the Lancaster County Planning Commission, I understand the issues that face our county from both the private and public sectors.   

  • Sistare column: Lancaster County is moving forward

     

    Over the last four years, Lancaster County Council has made great strides in moving Lancaster County forward.

  • Deese letter: Harris a team player who will work for city’s District 3

    I am writing in support of Jackie Harris for Lancaster City Council District 3. 

    I have known Mrs. Harris for well over 20 years. She is a woman of integrity and dependability, as well as having a love for her community. She will work hard to make the best decisions for the city of Lancaster. She will be a team player and will work for the good of her district. Jackie Harris is the best candidate for this position and will be committed to serving the people of that area, along with helping others in this community. Please support Jackie Harris.
