  • Holiday Tour of Homes

    A trio of beautifully decorated country homes in the Rich Hill community of Heath Springs will sparkle in the yuletide spotlight Sunday during the Lancaster Garden Club’s 30th Annual Christmas Tour of Homes.

    For Jodi and Joey Franklin, the luminous shades come from rooms lined with Santas and rich earth tones inside their Dean Lane home.

    The Franklins’ neighbors Leslie and Dixon Parker let their holiday spirit glow with child-centered, you’re-allowed-to-touch décor.

  • 9-hole disc golf comes to Springdale Complex

    The Springdale Recreation Complex is home to a new 9-hole disc golf course friendly to all ages.
    The 3-par course was funded by a grant from the J. Marion Sims Foundation.
    Disc golf sets were donated to middle schools in the county and Springdale was given an extra set, said Hal Hiott, the county’s parks and recreation director.
    The set was installed in two days by the staff and Lancaster resident Steve Lambert, who designed the course.

  • Good Samaritans all over the place

    We were almost on the road again, until my daughter Sherrie Bailey and her husband, Tim, had a mechanical problem with their pickup pulling their camper to Myrtle Beach Travel Park for a few days of vacation.
    I have always said anything manmade, mechanical or electrical, new or old, can and will eventually give you trouble. Tim always keeps his equipment in good condition. It was near Father’s Day, so Sherrie asked me and my lady friend, Martha, to go to Myrtle Beach with her and Tim for a few days.

    More than 100 people gathered Saturday at Lancaster’s Preston Blackmon Park for the eighth-annual National Youth Empowerment Kids Day.
    Children laughed as they played on the jungle gym and swings. Adults tried to catch a cool breeze on the hot summer afternoon and catch up with friends they hadn’t seen in a while. Everyone chowed down on free food.

  • Science + Art

    Campers’ eyes were filled with excitement and wonder Monday morning as the Lancaster County Council of the Arts started its first week of Arts and Sciences camps in Lancaster.
    Being one of the largest sessions, the Lancaster camp is hosting nearly 70 participants this week at Covenant Baptist Church.
    LCCA Executive Director Debbie Jaillette said the Lancaster session has 12 classes with instructors who are certified teachers and art professors.
