  • Pauling upbeat about Bruins cross country

    The 2010 season looks promising for Lancaster High School Bruins cross country team.

    “Our team is growing each year,” LHS coach Josh Pauling said. “In three years, we have doubled in size, which is very exciting. We are trying to build a consistent, winning program here and it’s very rewarding to see it grow and to see the kids really embrace not only cross country, but a lifestyle of running and healthier habits. This season our roster is up to 27 runners and we want it to continue to grow each year.”

  • Lancaster lost a legend in 'Itoo'

    My heart is deeply broken with the passing of Anasue Love also known affectionately as “Itoo.” She was a charming, classy wonderful lady, a Lancaster legend and more importantly – my friend.

    I grew to know her from my days of working across the street from her store, the Dianne Shoppe. She would walk over and lighten up the day with her quick wit, news or beloved dog, Trooper.

  • Lancaster High girls golf team unbeaten at 5-0

  • Connect with our future

    It is not a novel idea and it doesn’t take a PhD to know that children have a better opportunity to succeed in life when they have someone to support and encourage them. Ideally, that person is the child’s parent.  

    Sometimes, however, that role is filled by a volunteer Guardian ad Litem. The difference?

    A volunteer Guardian ad Litem is court-appointed to children who have been abused or neglected by their parents or other caregivers.

    The Department of Social Services has become involved with the family and a family court case has been opened.

  • Babies focus of contest

    Foster was named the Div. I Defensive Lineman of the Week.

  • Education was a calling for Dr. Barry

    I sat across from Dr. Peter Barry’s desk, my notebook on my lap, facing my final exam in his history course.

    And I felt as prepared as I could ever be – besides, I could use any notes I’d taken to back up my answers.

    Dr. Barry asked the first question.

    I took a deep breath and opened my notebook to confirm my answer.

    And then I looked up – shocked and agitated.

    “Dr. Barry, I brought the wrong notebook,” I said.

    He raised his eyebrows, adding to my frustration.

  • Evelyn Springs to host Autism Speaks fish fry Saturday

    When Evelyn Springs announced in August that the Autism Speaks fundraiser, Lancaster Cooks 2010 – Look Who’s Cooking, had been postponed, she vowed not to sit on her laurels.

    The feisty, take-no-for-an-answer-grandmother is proving to be good to her word.

    Springs – who continues to fight autism – the disease that is effects the daily life of her 8-year-old grandson, Mailk, is now casting her bread upon the waters with a fishing net.

  • Telling time not as easy as it looks

    Time didn’t really matter much because somebody was always telling me when to come and when to go.

    Now we had clocks all over the house, including the big wind-up downstairs Roman numeral grandfather clock where the half-pint bottle of cough medicine (whiskey) was kept.

    I couldn’t tell time, but I knew exactly where the cough medicine was.

    For me, learning to tell time was a bit confusing.

    Mama and Daddy didn’t do it like the way Miss Jones was teaching us in third grade.
