    The Indian Land Warriors are again in the hunt for the Class AA state soccer crown.

    These “consumers,” as Bramlett calls them, are experiencing their third year packing the eggs provided by the city of Lancaster for Rosie’s Easter Egg Hunt from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 4, at the Lancaster County Fairgrounds.

  • Council, LCEDC discuss concerns

    Are there concerns amongst state leaders about the Lancaster County Economic Development Corp. and have LCEDC leaders tried to meet with state delegates about those issues?
    Those questions, and more than a few answers, were brought up during a recent joint meeting March 24 between Lancaster County Council and the Lancaster County Economic Development Corp.
    Held inside council chambers and lasting almost three hours, the meeting touched upon a number of topics, including several weighing heavily on some council members’ minds.

  • New DSS director visits county

    by David Kellin/for The Lancaster News
    Susan Alford, the new director of the S.C. Department of Social Services, visited Lancaster County on Tuesday, March 31.
    She is touring county DSS offices across the state to review what is working and what needs improvements.

    The stop in Lancaster is the second in a statewide tour. She believes that the changes that DSS has to make will be made at the local levels.  

  • Couple hopes for another Easter miracle

    The last time The Lancaster News wrote about Neil and Lois Zarrelli, it was to tell the story of their reunion with five stolen pet goats shortly before Easter 2012, thanks to the help of a vigilant reader.
    In the last five months, the couple has been the victim of two more “kidnappings” – and now they’re once again asking for the public’s help in the hopes of another Easter miracle.

  • Stacks fall at Del Webb library

    If there was ever a job you wouldn’t normally associate with the term “occupational hazard” it would have to be “librarian,” but an experience Del Webb Library Branch Manager Nancy Berry had last week proves the two aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive.
    The accident occurred March 25 during a maintenance shutdown to add more shelf space.
    “We were trying to take out some supports (on a bookshelf), so we could put in some more shelves, and before we could get them in, it toppled,” Berry said.

  • Miller column: Why do we hate?

    Hate is a harsh word for a harsh emotion. Some may hate you because you’re black or because you’re white. Others may hate you because you’re Christian or Jewish. They may hate you because you’re gay or straight. Maybe it’s because you’re tall, short, fat, thin, pretty, ugly, red-skinned, yellow-skinned, smart, stupid. They may hate you just because you are different than them. I could go on ad infinitum, but you get the point.

  • Koffman column: Beware of S.C. HOAs

    From the mountains to the shore, South Carolina has much to offer. What it fails to offer are laws to protect the estimated 1.5 million people living in a community governed by a homeowners association.
    Here’s a sampling of what can happen to you if you live in an HOA-governed community in this state. Imagine your reaction if you were a victim:
    • A developer reigns as head of your HOA for nearly half a century, practicing a “dictator” management style.
