  • Our View: Candidates should court all voters, not just older ones

    The Republican primary season is in high gear in South Carolina, evidenced both by the number of campaign signs popping up like mushrooms in area yards and the number of presidential hopefuls racing around the state.
    This week, GOP presidential hopeful Texas Gov. Rick Perry made two stops in Lancaster County – both to talk with senior voters.

    Editor’s note: Portions of Greg Gregory’s guest column were omitted in the Jan. 6 edition of The Lancaster News. Here is the column in its entirety.

    “Your life isn’t changed by the man that’s elected..” – Avett Brothers
    Americans look with desperation to Washington to solve our problems. For many of us, however, our largest problem is in the mirror. For what we are doing to ourselves through lack of exercise and an atrocious diet presents a much greater threat to our well-being than an entrenched Congress.

  • Slow cookers speak a universal language

    Having a successful career means a lot to Stephanie O’Dea. 

    But in the big picture, being a successful mom means more, especially when that family includes three children under age 10, including one with Celiac disease (gluten intolerant).

    But can you have both?
