  • Daddy's driving advice is still good

    One of the marvels of modern society is the ability to read the views of various folks who contribute to newspapers all over the world. In case you missed it, we just celebrated National Newspaper Week.

    According to the latest research, almost 70 percent of your neighbors have read either a printed newspaper or a cyberspace version in the last seven days.

    I think it’s because the old black and white and “read all over” newspaper is still the most trusted source of local news we have.

  • Did wrong date indicate need for a panic attack?

    On the morning of Oct. 2, 2011, I sat down with a cup of coffee and my copy of The Lancaster News.
    I turned to the Faces and Places section and glanced at the date on page 1B. The date said Sunday, October 11, 2011. I began my panic attack. What happened to Sunday, Oct. 2, 2011? What happened to last week? Where am I? Should I not know where I am?

  • Naming SCDOT building for Williams fitting tribute

    As the S.C. 9 traffic whizzed by, I was thinking maybe Mr. Williams did too good of a job as resident maintenance engineer for Lancaster County.
    Mr. Williams, as I knew him, is the late Steve Clyburn Williams Jr., who worked 40 years with the S.C. Department of Transportation to make sure county roads were in good shape.
    The way the nearby traffic rumbled by the Lancaster headquarters of the SCDOT, it was a challenge to hear.

    The Lancaster County Board of Zoning Appeals overturned a county decision to revoke an Indian Land concrete plant’s right to operate in a local light industrial park.

    Attention shoppers. 

    If you have any expired coupons, they can still be used by military families overseas. 

    The Lancaster County Veterans Affairs Office has been collecting coupons since early September that are benefiting families stationed at a U.S. Army base in Vicennial, Italy. The staff's effort is part of the national Overseas Coupon Program, in which groups can “adopt” military bases abroad.
