    The sixth annual “Lancaster Cooks: Look Who’s Cooking,” an evening that brings together good food with a great cause, is Sept. 24.

    The event was started by chairperson Evelyn Springs, whose 11-year-old grandson with autism was the driving force behind her desire to get involved with programs that raise money for autism research.

  •  Fall is on its way, and with it the foliage begins to turn, along with a slight nip in the evening air. And for my family and friends, it’s football time. 

    The sport is big business in my part of the country - and everywhere else for that matter. Next to which rivalry is playing out on any given weekend, the most important part of the day is what’s on the menu.

    No football party is complete without something “buffalo” (at least in my eyes). 

  • Love is a many-splendored thing, according to a 1955 movie of the same title, and one of the most splendid things about it is that it is not bound by time, distance, or even age.

    Faye Williams, 65, will walk down the aisle on Saturday, Sept. 7 and say “I do” to 69-year-old Homer Moree, and a love that found its way to her under very unusual circumstances.

    “I’ve known Homer for 10 years now,” Williams said. “His wife, Crady,  was my best friend.”

  •  Things are all a’bustle at Cedarleaf as we count down the days until Sept. 27 when we host the annual S.C. Tree Farm Field Tour.

    “Field Days” are traditionally held at the current Tree Farm of the Year, and we have been busy preparing for our event over many months.

  • Teenage best friends share a lot – their dreams, their secrets, their laughter.

    And a few months ago, four local girls shared a combined dream – to attend a One Direction concert.

    The girls’ determination to see the English-Irish boy band from London prompted them to begin a fundraising campaign to buy concert tickets.

    Debbie Burchett, Breanna Burchett’s mother, said the girls started raising money in February.

  • Getting plants in the ground is easy. Watering, weeding, feeding – well, these activities take a little time, but they’re easy, too. 

    Knowing when to harvest your bounty is tricky, because it’s not always obvious. 

    After all, how can you check on your potatoes without digging them up? 

    Here are some quick tips to keep in mind for picking some of the more popular garden vegetables. 

  • An inviting front porch and yard filled with an assortment of blooms and foliage at the home of Tony and Nancy Snipes caught the attention of Sara Phillips, Leaf & Petal Garden Club member. She selected their home, at 1970 Robert H. Kirk Road, as the August Yard of the Month.

    “From the white crepe myrtles that frame the driveway to the front plantings highlighting the front porch, this yard is well kept and full of color,” Phillips said.

  •  I’ve said it before and I will say it again; I love tomatoes. 

    When they are ripe and juicy, you can eat them as a snack (I may be known to do this from time to time). On their own, tomatoes are great. But once you start cooking with them, the taste factor goes to a whole new level.

  • The Dream Team Foundation in Lancaster is seeking for participants as it kicks off the sixth year of providing sports opportunities for special needs children in Lancaster County.
