  • Chick letter: New post office should be in center of IL

    Regarding the new U.S. post office in the 29707 ZIP code – the area known as Indian Land.
    Postal officials were quoted as saying they have listened to the people and have moved the location of the new 29707 post office west of Lowe’s near S.C. 160.
    I don’t believe they listen too good.  
    Why do we need a new post office only a few miles from the Fort Mill 29715 post office? Why do we want it close to the North Carolina state line?

  • Rogosky letter: Transplant will vote no to incorporation

    I read with dismay the news about the Indian Land incorporation initiative. I am relocating with my family from Pennsylvania to South Carolina for the warm weather, nice people and especially the low taxes and low cost of living.

  • Helms letter: Did you get your county tax notice?

    At the end of October or early November, Lancaster County homeowners should have received their property tax bills, which must be paid by Jan. 16, 2018, to avoid penalties.
    If you have not received your tax bill, contact our office to help locate your bill and make sure we have the correct address on file for you.
    If your tax bill is paid from escrow, the mortgage company will gather their information electronically from us, but to make sure proper payment is made, you can forward them the information that you received from us in the mail.

  • Clark letter: Must slow down traffic on S.C. 5, U.S. 521

    Are any law enforcement officers going to slow down traffic on S.C. 5 and U.S. 521?
    I live on Highway 5 and can’t get out on the road to go somewhere.
    On Halloween, I was on Highway 5 and a dump truck was on my bumper from Tenacity Court to the cement plant. It almost ran into me when I pulled off to let him by. There have been three times since then.
    I try to drive the speed limit, but the trucks don’t. Highways 5 and 521 are racetracks.

  • Merg letter: Not all social media news is ‘fake’

    I feel compelled to tell you that I really enjoy the weekly paper because the articles/topics are close to me.
    The article in the Nov. 8 edition about James Elliott “Willy” Williams was fantastic for this Veterans Day edition. Truly a local hero.

  • Wille letter: Is Parnell ready for the swamp?

    Mark Manicone’s Oct. 25 article about Archie Parnell’s new campaign for Congress had me asking questions. After careful consideration, here are my views.
    Parnell takes President Donald Trump’s basic ideas that the USA needs good jobs, tax changes and strong communities. He claims Congress – that’s the House and Senate – has not accomplished anything over the last months.

  • Milano letter: Name new school after county astronaut

    My choice for naming the new school would be Charles Duke Elementary.

  • Taylor letter: VFW Auxiliary thanks Talbots for fundraiser

    The Capt. John P. Monahan VFW Post 12136 Auxiliary would like to thank Talbots of Blakeney for the opportunity to raise money for our post relief fund. Talbots generously gave our auxiliary a percentage of its sales Nov. 10 in honor of Veterans Day. Our auxiliary members were able to talk to Talbots’ customers to share our reasons for the fundraiser. Because of this opportunity, we will be able to help veterans and their families in need.

  • Sawyer letter: Concern over ILHS runners’ attire, funding

    I want to share with you my support of the Indian Land High School girls cross country program and the need for schools to continue to focus on girls athletics and the importance of equal internal and school funding support of such programs.
    Yesterday (Nov. 4), I witnessed many cross country schools attending the S.C. state championship race in Columbia. What a wonderful day and event for the kids and showing of fan support.

  • Gueldner letter: Students to be commended for opinions

    This is in response to the student articles about “taking a stand” in the Oct. 25 paper. Both Adriana Wilson and Dawson Tate need to be commended for their concern about their country. Their opinions have to be respected even though they are complete opposites.
    My only issue is with Adriana’s statement that “in other countries they do not know what freedom is,” which implies that freedom of speech is strictly an American privilege. A better choice would be “in some countries” or “in many countries.”
