  • Editor’s note – Each Friday in April, The Lancaster News is publishing the winning essays from “The Veteran in Your Life” essay contest sponsored by the Lancaster County Veterans Affairs Office as part of National County Government Month. The theme is “Serving Our Veterans, Armed Forces and Their Families.” Four winners (elementary school, middle school, high school and grand prize) will be selected and announced.

  • Forty-five years in the making, Vivian Ferguson’s yard at 601 Laurel Court is a  sight to behold.
    After careful planning and lots of tender loving care, her yard is now a true showplace filled with a wide variety of perennials, trees and shrubs that offer colorful blooms year round.
    If you’ve driven along Woodland Drive near Lancaster High School, you’ve probably noticed it, especially in the spring.  

  • With family-packages and buying in bulk the norm, cooking for one or two people can be an exercise in futility.
    Most recipes are written for families of four or for six to eight people.
    That’s especially true of dinner recipes, said Joe Yonan, author of “Serve Yourself: Nightly Adventures in Cooking for One.”

  • Not everyone who enjoys gardening gets a flower named after them, but it’s happened to Betsy Steele
    Bob Roycroft, a Georgetown day lily (hemerocallis) hybridizer, has  introduced “Betsy’s Delight” to honor of Steele, president of the Garden Club of South Carolina (GCSC).
    The parent plant of “Betsy’s Delight” is “Lady of Class,” which fits Steele’s gracious, thoughtful and encouraging demeanor. The flower certainly caught on and is currently sold out.

  • On Monday, the President and First Lady will send out the Secret Service to round up children in Virginia and Maryland, give them a colored basket and a free pass to wallow in the grass on the South Lawn of America’s back yard for the 133rd annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
    Given the political correctness of the times, I’m kinda surprised they haven’t changed the name to the “Spring Spheres Rotation.”
