  • Owner offers $1,000 reward

    Frank Reid expresses disappointment as he ponders who shot his dog less than three weeks ago. 

    Reid said his business partner, Jayne Reid, was walking the tan-and-white beagle and another dog on Thermal Trail the afternoon of Nov. 13.

    Thermal Trail is adjacent to the Reids’ Bermuda High Soaring, a flight training facility off S.C. 903 in Lancaster County’s Flat Creek area. 

  • County Council waives HOPE’s rent

    It may only be $255 a month, but Elaine Adkins is grateful for every penny.

    Adkins, executive director of HOPE in Lancaster, smiled as Lancaster County Council voted unanimously Monday night to waive rent payments for her organization. The vote was 6-0, as Council Chairwoman Kathy Sistare recused herself. 

  • Please step up and help up

    It’s hard to believe giving up one soda or snack could help keep someone’s lights on this Christmas.

    But that’s the strategy behind Elaine Adkins latest plea, which she calls “the $1 challenge.” As executive director of HOPE in Lancaster, a charitable organization which provides food and help with rent and utility bills for local families, Adkins is asking the community to make small sacrifices to help their neighbors.
