    The day before Thanksgiving is a day Ruddy and Linda Shipton will never forget. They lost their home and three of their beloved dogs to a ferocious fire. 

  • What Denver Bierman stands for is not as important as the rock he stands on.
    A diehard Hoosier who now makes his home in Hendersonville, Tenn., Bierman doesn’t keep his light under a basket. He and his merry band of musicians let it shine for everyone to see.
    The 33-year-old trumpet player/singer/band leader of the Denver and the Mile High Orchestra (DMHO) will fill the Bundy Auditorium at the University of South Carolina on Friday with a high-energy holiday big band sound that is timeless, cutting edge and spiritual.

  • Family Features

    The holidays are supposed to be filled with love and good cheer, but the logistics of shopping for gifts, sending out cards, taking family trips and shipping packages can leave even the jolliest of people in a Scrooge-like mood. 

     

    Fortunately, there are some ways you can take the hassle out of the holidays and make them a little brighter for yourself and those around you. 

  • The life and times of Lallage Jones read like a great short story.
    And now, that’s just what it is.
    Her story, “Highlights of My Life,” is now a permanent part of the Peggy Howell-Heath Archive Room at First United Methodist Church.
    Jones was also recently recognized by the city of Lancaster for her contributions.
    A talented artist, Jones taught math at South Junior (now Middle) School for 13 years.
    Mayor Joe Shaw said Jones has become an example for others to follow.

  • Spend an evening in the 18th-century. Come see for yourself what life was like for early settlers living in the Waxhaws.
    See how the American Revolution affected this region.
    Experience life in this area during Andrew Jackson’s time and watch the events that shaped the community as you step back in time.
    Watch as costumed volunteers bring the events to life and demonstrate the skills it took to survive in this backcountry settlement.
    Join the Friends of Andrew Jackson State Park on Saturday for its annual Life in the Waxhaws Lantern Tour.

  • Dr. John Griffin, distinguished professor emeritus at the University of South Carolina, has written on a variety of topics ranging from college football rivalries to World War II heroes and presidents.
    He even found time to pen a murder mystery.
    But Griffin considers his latest book, which will be released at Lancaster County Library on Thursday, among the most important to date.
    The title is a dead giveaway as why Griffin chose Veterans Day to unveil the work.
