  • Ferguson letter: Lancaster High’s reasons to Relay

    Everyone has been touched by cancer, either through their own personal battle or through someone they love.
    In case you didn’t know, Relay for Life is a 12-hour festival that raises money for the American Cancer Society. The event is 12 hours because cancer never sleeps.
    Through the fun and games, lives are honored, survivors are lifted and memories are shared.

  • Hayes letter: McCain concert a fun night for residents

    Those of you who like R&B, contemporary rock and a little country rock missed a treat if you weren’t at Bradley Auditorium on Oct. 16. Edwin McCain never disappoints. He even has some new stories. His saxaphone player is excellent and is given ample solos during concerts.
    If McCain returns to Lancaster, I hope there will be a larger audience. It’s good to support the arts, but even better to support South Carolina artists.

  • Eudy letter: I'm no newbie to Lancaster County

    In reply to W.B. Evans’ letter to the editor titled, “Northerners seek to make Indian Land like home,” Mr. Evans, you should have done your homework about me.

  • Our View: Investment shows city’s support for business park

    The city of Lancaster is putting its money where its mouth is in support of a future business park near Lancaster County Airport on S.C. 9 West.
    Lancaster City Council, by a 6-1 vote, approved at its Oct. 23 meeting to allocate $900,000 to extend city water and sewer services to the Lancaster Air-Rail Industrial Park, a joint project being planned by Lancaster City and County Councils.

  • Summers column: Sun City voters are likely to impact this election

    Numbers never lie.
    It’s easy to measure the impact Sun City Carolina Lakes in Indian Land is making in Lancaster County.
    Since its beginning in 2005, the 1,512-acre active adult community on Charlotte Highway has become one of the fastest growing subdivisions in the nation.
    According to the Charlotte Business Journal, the development led the Charlotte region in the number of new single-family homes, with 205 closings in 2011.
    It’s impact is being felt in other ways, as well.

  • 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.
