  • When members of the Quilt A Holics quilting group found themselves looking for a new project, they chose to make a Quilt of Valor. Members made blocks on their own, then they put them together to form a quilt.
    Since June 2015, the group has made five quilts.
    These quilts were presented on Wednesday to Sun City residents and World War II veterans Fred Banks, Pat Cassetta, Donald Comstock, Jack Shumaker and Dollie Steele.

  • What do a pair of conspiracy-minded paranormal investigators, an affectionate San Francisco family and the “trial of the century” have in common?
    If you’re any sort of pop culture fanatic – a special fraternity of aficionados of which I’ve been a card-carrying member since the late 1980s – then you have an idea how they’re connected.

    Super Bowl Sunday is a week away, but it’s not too early to put together a game plan for that all-important game-day menu.
    It’s one of the two days each year when food, fellowship and football collide, which gives credence to the notion that football is indeed America’s favorite sport.  
    Only Thanksgiving surpasses Super Bowl Sunday in food consumption, according to the USDA.

    Imagine setting out on a trip to visit family, and six months later having visited all four corners of the United States.
    That’s what happened to Sally Southerland of Lancaster and her husband, Jimmie, who completed the journey of over 22,000 miles in 2010. They set out on a trip to visit Jim’s father in Key West, Fla. Riding together on a single motorcycle that Jim had rebuilt, they soon were on a grand adventure. 


  • Whether you are rich or poor, we all share one task – a trip to the garbage dump, also known as a county convenience site in today’s politically correct terms.
    I have my very own, personal facility, which I frequently share with my neighbors and a few out of staters who prefer the dump to the shoulders of a county road.
    I didn’t always have my site.  At first, it was just a tract of land covered in weeds. Then it was developed into a nice brick grammar school. You know, one of those “neighborhood schools.”

  • Granny Summers’ small New Cut house was built on a foundation of love that glowed every Christmas.

    A widow since before my birth, she didn’t have much, but she had Jesus, and to her, that was all that mattered. She passed on that sort of love – one that gives and not takes – to her children and 16 grandchildren. It molded us and continues to shape our lives.

    So what do you get someone who doesn’t need anything for Christmas?
