  •  I’ve always loved summer. As a child, my perfect afternoon was swimming with friends and playing tag with neighborhood kids. 

    Now that I’m older, my summer afternoons have slowed down a bit.

    It’s about enjoying a glass of sweet tea and taking in the beauty surrounding the deck in my backyard. 

  • Trayce Griffin isn’t looking for fame and fortune. As a hair stylist of 18 years, she says she likes using her talents to help her clients feel good about themselves.  Joining the staff of At Salon Dimensions when it opened some 10 years ago, she has a lot of loyal clients, evidence she’s doing her job right, and that’s satisfying for her. 

  • Ms. Jeanette Sellers Byrdic and Mr. Marty Odet Starnes announce their engagement.
    The wedding is planned for Sunday, Sept. 1, 2013 on the beach in Garden City, S.C., at sunset.

  • For bass singer Richard Sterban, the decision to leave J.D. Sumner and the Stamps in the early 1970s was a no-brainer.

    “A lot of people who knew me questioned it, but it was an easy decision at the time,” said Sterban, a member of the Oak Ridge Boys, who will perform at the University of South Carolina Lancaster on Sept. 6  as part of the 2013-14 See Lancaster SC Performing Arts Series.

  •  Shhhh, don’t tell the kids, but it’s nearly back to school time again. 

    I can hardly believe it myself. It seems just like yesterday that I finally got all the summer clothes ironed and hung up (Oh dear, I think that was yesterday). 

    Well, no matter - summer wasn’t meant for chores anyway. 

  • I am going to relive a story I brought to you, oh, probably some three years ago about going back to school and how wonderful that time was for me.
    I remember it well and as I worked and shopped over this three day tax-free weekend, I was oh so reminded of it and how hard it must have been for Mama to get everything for Cindy and I.
    But no matter what the sacrifice, she and Daddy always did it and we had everything we needed to start the school year fresh and new. Enjoy the story once again and relive your own memories of those school days.
