  • Nipper the goose loves people

    INDIAN LAND – Carol Carnes’ pet goose, Nipper, thinks she’s a human being.

    She dresses up, hates the color orange, enjoys being around people and can sense moods.

    “She senses people that are handicapped or in a wheel chair,” Carnes said. “They can do about anything they want with her and she will just stand there. I’ll set her on their lap and she will just lay there. Like I said, some of them don’t have muscle control, and she’ll just let them do whatever.”

  • Council debates waste tire issue

    How residents will dispose of old tires now that new state regulations are taking effect was discussed again by County Council on Monday.

    But a final decision hasn’t been reached yet.

    Jana White, a representative from the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control’s solid waste division, talked to council Monday about restrictions recently put in place by DHEC that call for tracking the disposal of tires throughout the state. The requirements also require counties to count tires and verify who is dropping them off.

  • AJ's Flowers impact player

    KERSHAW It’s been four seasons since former Andrew Jackson High School running back E.J. Simmons played for the Volunteers, but he still has an impact on one Vols’ player.

    AJ senior running back Trent Flowers, Simmons’ cousin, feels an influence from the former Vols’ running back and defensive back, a versatile performer who never shunned  contact.

    “He stays on me and makes me work,” said Flowers, a two-year starter who was a second-team all-region selection last season.

  • Group recently rescued 11 neglected horses

    VAN WYCK, Nestled among tree-lined creeks is a safe place where abused horses find healing.

    Healing Horses, a nonprofit organization affiliated with Project Halo in Charlotte, recently took in 11 neglected horses from a Lancaster County farm and took them to the organization’s 11-acre sanctuary in Van Wyck.

    Some of the horses were tied to trees, left to stand in their own waste, with very little to eat.

    But what shocked Healing Horses director Katie Holme the most recently was finding a stallion nailed into his stall. He was knee-deep in manure and muck.

  • Bengals claw Bruins in 23-13 win

    Lancaster High School football coach Bennie McMurray said the Bruins’ 23-13 homecoming loss to Blythewood was a night of missed opportunities.

    No doubt the biggest came midway the final period when the Bruins, down 23-13, were unable to produce after Shaq Elder’s 45-yard punt return to the Bengals’ nine with 8:28 to play.

    Four straight Zed Truesdale rushes were close, but not enough as BHS held Lancaster at the one.

    “That was big for us,” Blythewood coach Geremy Saitz said. “We played our hearts off.”
