  • The start of a new school year always has me remembering when and marveling at how quick time flies.

    Gosh, seems it was only yesterday that me and Mama were walking hand in hand down to Chesterfield Avenue Grammar School for my very first day of school.

    By the fall of 1941, I was in Miss Charlotte Jones’ third grade class. 

    Everyday, she had us studying something new.

  • Ashli Young, agriculture teacher at Andrew Jackson High School, was named the county’s 2011 Conservation Educator of the Year on April 4, at the Lancaster County Soil and Water Conservation District’s monthly board Meeting. 

    Each year, the soil and water conservation district recognizes a Lancaster County teacher who is doing an outstanding job educating students about the importance of natural resources. 

  • The Lancaster County Red Cross Heroes Campaign couldn’t have asked for a better script.

    When the winning ticket for a 2010 Ford Mustang was drawn Aug. 5, the winner was one of their own.

    Red Cross volunteer Margaret Gamble, a retired educator and member of the Lancaster County School Board, won the drawing.

    “This whole thing is really ironic,” Gamble said laughing. “I won a table decoration at a dinner one time, but I’ve never won anything big like this.”

    Red clay and barren ground has been replaced by sod, stone pavers, planting beds, benches, mulch and a pergola with vine runners. 

  • Something big was going on down at Dr. Strait’s old homeplace. 

    Since it was only three houses up Chesterfield Avenue toward town, I decided to mosey down there to see what all the commotion was about. 

    After talkin’ to some of the working fellas, one of ’em spilled the beans.

    “Son, they’re gonna build a brand new grammar school right here on this hill,” he said. 

    Boy, that was good news for me. It meant I wouldn’t have to go across town to Central School.
