  • A singer's singer

    The “singer’s singer” whose voice has touched millions of lives around the world is coming to Lancaster.

    Award winning gospel singer Cynthia Clawson will perform at 11 a.m. Sunday at First Baptist Church.

    “I think being considered a ‘singer’s singer’ means ‘someone can sing for me and I won’t be critical,’” said Clawson, laughing. “As singers, we listen so critically to how others do it. I think it means I can just relax and enjoy when she sings, or at least I hope that’s what it means.”

  • Volunteers reason for successful fundraiser

    Calvin Miller doubted his faith just a little. Volunteers and organizers of the April 24 Family Promise yard sale were told if they raised $10,000, an anonymous donor would donate $10,000.

    The volunteers worked hard to organize the yard sale. Representatives from 15 churches met once a week for six weeks to plan the fundraiser.

    Miller, who is chairman of Family Promise, a network of local churches that provides homeless families with children food, shelter, clothing and counseling, was worried they couldn’t raise that much and thereby would lose that $10,000.

  • Mother's Day pin still has its luster

    – Editor’s note: Due to reader requests, we are reprinting this Remember When column, which was originally published in the May 13, 2007, edition of The Lancaster News.

    Time never dulls the luster of a mother’s love. I rarely addressed my mother – the late Azalee Scott Evans – by the so-called proper name of mother.

    She was, and still remains, Mama to me.

    She passed away in 1970 at the age of 63.

  • IL road gets new address numbers

    A short stretch of road near an Indian Land neighborhood must change its address numbers by the end of the month.

    Several businesses and houses along Carolina Commons Drive, which runs parallel to U.S. 521 in Indian Land, must comply with a county request to alter their address sequencing within the next few weeks. County planning director Chris Karres said the county is requesting the change due to a mistake made when the buildings and road were constructed.
