  • ILES raises curtain on ‘Peter Pan’ Tuesday

    Indian Land Elementary School’s fifth grade is about to make school history of sorts this week with its first bona fide school play.

    And they’re going all out with a production of Disney’s “Peter Pan.”

    The play is set for a one-night showing at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 26, in the Lancaster High School auditorium. Tickets are $2 at ILES, $4 the night of the show. Proceeds will help finance future productions.

  • Betsy's Delight

    Not everyone who enjoys gardening gets a flower named after them, but it’s happened to Betsy Steele
    Bob Roycroft, a Georgetown day lily (hemerocallis) hybridizer, has  introduced “Betsy’s Delight” to honor of Steele, president of the Garden Club of South Carolina (GCSC).
    The parent plant of “Betsy’s Delight” is “Lady of Class,” which fits Steele’s gracious, thoughtful and encouraging demeanor. The flower certainly caught on and is currently sold out.

  • Preacher's wives get to do the neat stuff

    On Monday, the President and First Lady will send out the Secret Service to round up children in Virginia and Maryland, give them a colored basket and a free pass to wallow in the grass on the South Lawn of America’s back yard for the 133rd annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
    Given the political correctness of the times, I’m kinda surprised they haven’t changed the name to the “Spring Spheres Rotation.”

  • Memories of some early Easter starts

     

    When Easter rolls around each year, a  central thought comes to mind. That’s early morning, often just before dawn.

    But when the words of thanks come from someone they didn’t expect to speak again, it means a little bit more.

    Former Lancaster resident Richard Hough can attest to that. Hough is a paid firefighter and EMT with the Chester Fire Department.
