  • 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.” 

  • The area in front of the Buford Middle School gym is sporting a new look because Donna Moree just happened to be in the in right place at the right time.

    Red clay and barren ground has been replaced by sod, stone pavers, planting beds, benches, mulch and a pergola with vine runners.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

  • “How often should I water?” is perhaps the most frequently asked question by those who enjoy indoor potted plants.
    But there is no pat answer to the question. “Water it as much as it needs to grow” isn’t the right reply.
    Variables such as plant type, plant age, growth stage, season, location, type and size of pot, soil mix characteristics, weather and placement have to be considered.
    According to the Clemson University Cooperative Extension Service, the main cause of death of potted plants is over-watering.
