  • Most Americans consider green tea as a beverage.
    However, in Asian cuisine, green tea is used in common recipes.

  • In 2010, The Lancaster News published 164 issues. That’s a lot of your stories to tell.
    We said hello to Zantwan Adams, the county’s first baby, born Jan. 2.
    We lost Dr. Bill Duke, school board member Dr. Peter Barry, longtime business owner J.L. Knight, “Aunt Jo” Williams, former county councilman Gene Hudson, the Rev. N.J. Neely and countless others who made a difference.

  • In celebration of the holiday season, the homes of Lancaster are decorated with ribbons, lights, and greenery inside and out.   
    For this reason, the December Yard of the Month is not only selected for landscape design but also for the festive decorations that enhance it.
    With this in mind, the Lancaster Council of Garden Clubs selected the home of Rick and Dean DuRant, 1405 Somerset Drive.
    “This is a charming brick home. The holiday decorations work beautifully from day into night,” said Joyce Morin of the Lancaster Garden Club.

  • In the upcoming year, the Lancaster County District of the Boy Scouts of America will be under construction to revamp its volunteer support base from the ground up, said local Boy Scout executive Art Harris.
    “It’s been around 100 years and has contributed a lot of leadership to Lancaster in that time and we want that to continue,” Harris said.
    Harris said the great thing about scouting is everyone gets to play, regardless of skill level.

  • 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.
