  • South letter: Help by standing up for abused kids

    The season of giving is upon us, and there is no better gift than giving back to your community.
    Being a volunteer with the Cass Elias McCarter Guardian ad Litem Program allows you to give a short amount of your time to an abused and neglected child in Lancaster County all year round. The joy you will receive knowing you made a difference in the life of a child is priceless.

  • Tanner letter: I'm going to vote yes on IL incorporation

    I am continually being asked my position on Indian Land incorporating. I am voting yes.
    The last straw for me was Lancaster County Planning Commission changing its meeting hours to 6 p.m. That was the last slap in the face from Lancaster County. This change was made so Indian Land residents will find it almost impossible to attend the meetings and speak out for our community.

  • Wilkenfeld letter: Sun City resident feeling gouged

    I read your Nov. 29 article with interest regarding Indian Land jobs and skyrocketing income.
    We purchased our home in Sun City Carolina Lakes 10½ years ago for cash after selling our home in Raintree (N.C.) after 24-plus years.
    In all these years, I have always felt gouged at the water department since two seniors (wife and myself) pay on average $60 per month for water. Our home in Charlotte was almost twice the size, three children still lived with us then and the water was about half the cost.

  • 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.
