  • Church to unveil Lavoy Bauknight exhibit Sunday

    The late Lester Robinson, former managing editor of The Lancaster News, said it better that I ever could in the Dec. 13, 1995, edition.

    In a column about the death of Lavoy Darlington Bauknight two days prior, Robinson wrote, “When the Rev. and Mrs. P.L. Bauknight moved into the First United Methodist Church parsonage in the mid-1930s, little did Lancaster people know then what an impact their son would have here.”

    To be honest, that might be an understatement.

  • Founders boosts USCL’s future with its donation

    The University of South Carolina at Lancaster received quite a gift at the kickoff celebration to honor 50 years of serving Lancaster County and the surrounding communities.

    Founders President and CEO Bruce Brumfield presented the school, started in 1959, with a $1 million check.

  • Remember our lessons from 9-11

    No doubt you remember where you were eight years ago today. Almost all of us can recall what we were doing when we heard the news that terrorist-hijacked airplanes slammed into the Twin Towers in New York City.

    It was a typical Tuesday deadline day in the newsroom as we scrambled to prepare our Wednesday edition of The Lancaster News.

    Issues that demanded our time and undivided attention faded as we watched the events of that fateful day forever change America.

  • A lesson in education and respect

    Both former first lady Laura Bush and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich backed up the president of the United States this week. That’s news because of the great divide between Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives, left and right, or whatever labels you want to put on the two prevailing political ideologies.

  • Edible Art

    With its different colors and textures, sushi is edible art.

    I can’t remember when I first tried this exotic, aesthetically pleasing Japanese delight. I don’t do the eel, salmon or raw fish varieties. I’m happy with some crab, spicy shrimp or vegetarian sushi.

    On a recent Saturday night, I had the joy of eating dinner with Donna and Cecil Weaver of Lancaster. Donna, whose heritage includes Japanese, is from Hawaii, which has its own unique twist on sushi.
