  • Don’t miss the IL Fall Festival on Saturday

    It’s almost show time for the seventh annual Indian Land Fall into Fun Festival and third annual S.C. Championship Chili Cookoff.
    Saturday’s festival promises to be a lot of fun for everyone from toddlers to teens and older folks, all for a good cause.
    “This is the biggest fundraiser for the Indian Land Rotary Club, and what we do with the funds is give back, mostly to the local Indian Land community,” Indian Land Rotary Club President Dr. Adam Cooper said.

  • Harris will take a positive stand for all residents

    I am a Lancaster resident and I want to point out a few facts about the  two candidates running for the District 3 City Council seat – Jackie Harris and Linda Blackmon-Brace.
    The question of where Blackmon-Brace lives – Rose Lane or Arch Street – has been addressed in stories in this newspaper. There is no question where Harris lives. She lives on Springs Street. Harris is trustful.

  • Harris will make effective community leader

    Congratulations to city residents living in District 3. It was a pleasure to hear that Jackie Harris has decided to run for a City Council seat. She has the skills and talent to be an effective community leader.
    I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Jackie Harris for almost 20 years. Initially as a co-worker at the Lancaster Children’s Home, she’s continued to be a close friend. Whether we’re discussing a child’s case or a Sunday school lesson, the compassion and support are there.

  • Coach Crenshaw shines in the Four-Star chance

    Remember last spring when the four Lancaster County athletic booster clubs came together for a fundraiser to benefit all four county schools?
    The event, billed as the Four Star Raffle, was a success off the bat, raising money for the four schools’ athletic programs.
    During the night, one of the Buford High School auction items was a chance to be an honorary BHS football coach during a Jackets’ home game.

  • Don’t vote for party; vote for best person to do the job

    There are only 46 days until Election Day, Nov. 6, 2012. There are a lot of exciting races going on in South Carolina and the finish line will be late into the night.
    As seen in Columbia and in Washington, D.C., politicians go along to get along. Some like to shake up the standard of politics as usual while others will not make waves for fear of repercussions in their own political careers.

  • World peace possible, one country at a time

    On Sept. 22, 2006, my letter “Methods of religious conversions similar,” was published in The Lancaster News. Back then all the rage was over comments Pope Benedict made during a speech about Muhammad. Six years later, with current events in mind, it seems like déjà vu.

  • Nutrition and exercise important for seniors

    Several months ago, my staff participated in a health and wellness event in Columbia. Hundreds of active seniors gathered to attend classes and watch cooking and exercise demonstrations to learn more about the importance of proper nutrition and remaining fit.
    In the United States, heart disease remains the leading cause of death, but through preventative measures such as eating healthy and staying active, proper nutrition choices along with exercise can help lower your risk for many chronic diseases associated with aging.
