  • A.R. Rucker girls ‘a special group’

    Rucker Middle School girls basketball coach Ashley Price calls her Lady Rams’ team “a special group.”
    How special?
    Well, for the last two seasons, the Lady Rams are a most impressive 27-0 on the hardwood.
    That’s a stunning 27-oh! The 2011 team went 13-0 and the 2012 squad was 14-0.
    Price is right. That’s special.
    Then throw in the fact that the Lady Rams’ volleyball team, which Price guided, went unbeaten last fall and that’s extra special.

  • Dorman foils Bruins' postseason hopes

    Dorman took an early lead and never lost its  edge in taking an 81-62 win over No. 6 Lancaster in the Class AAAA Upper State semifinals on Tuesday night at Dorman High.

    The 25-3 Cavaliers held off several Lancaster runs in an attempt to take the lead, but Dorman kept the upper hand for the 19-point win.

    The Cavs' win sends DHS to the Class AAAA Upper State title game to face Gaffney on Friday night at 8:30 at the Bi-Lo Center in Greenville.

  • Returnees give solid hope for LHS baseball

    Staff Reports
    The Lancaster Bruins’ baseball team, with eight returnees, is optimistic about the 2012 LHS season.
    The Bruins, led by fourth-year head coach Brett Blackmon, have a solid cast back from the 2011 squad which went 11-12 and earned a Class AAAA Upper State playoff berth.
    The team also has some solid players up from the jayvee team who are expected to contribute.

  • We are Lancaster! or are we?

    I am writing concerning the We Are Lancaster! signs. First, I agree with the notion that the sign is implying we are unified as a community and stand together against certain views of our place of residence.

  • Are you better off then you were $5 trillion ago?

    There seems to be a lot of Democrat spinning here lately. No one is saying that only Democrats have made mistakes. However, denying them just reduces liberal credibility.

  • Don’t pass timber regulation

    Iam vIery disturbed by the fact that a new resolution is being introduced to deal with the use of public roads relating to timber harvesting.
    It disturbs me to think that a rural county like Lancaster would consider now over-regulating, overburdening and stifling an important industry to South Carolina.
    It might not be known that the timber and related industries employ more than 175,000 people in the state with an economic impact of $15 billion. This industry is now the largest employer in South Carolina!

  • Inner Drive

    Sometimes, what isn’t visible tells the story.

    Take Janna Noland, for instance.

    Right now, the 17-year-old senior at Carolina Christian Academy is putting the finishing touches on her Girl Scout Gold Award project.

    An Ambassador Girl Scout with Troop 645 in Great Falls, Janna is hand-making 21 tote bags that will be filled with baby items to hand out at Springs Memorial Hospital the week of March 12.

    That week commemorates the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts.

  • New not always better

    I have often heard it said that “change is good.”

    In the last 70-plus years, I have found out that some promises of change backfire.

    New ain’t always better.

    As soon as my daughter’s broken leg heals, I’m gonna ask her if the “new” leg is an improvement over the old one.

    I’ve been keeping track of the CNN storm that fell on Lancaster.
