    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.
