    Third-ranked Spartanburg Methodist completed a season’s baseball sweep of the University of South Carolina at Lancaster on Wednesday at the Lancaster High baseball field.

    The Pioneers, rated No. 3 in the NJCAA national rankings, won the opener 14-7 and rolled to a 14-0 win in the nightcap.

  • Folks can sell produce at Street Market

    I am writing to respond to Lois Knight’s letter, “County should give special consideration for seller,” published in The Lancaster News on April 26. She was voicing her concern that her neighbor, who is unemployed, had been told that he could no longer sell produce from his yard to raise extra money.

  • Baker holds off Blackmon for win

    It’s a fact a driver’s first win is always one that means the most.

    That being said, many drivers have anguished over that elusive first win. Over the years, Lancaster Speedway fans have watched their favorite drivers lead lap after lap, only to have it taken away in the waning laps.

  • Restricting man's ability to sell produce 'anti-American'

    I would like to thank letter writer Lois Knight for letting us know what happened to the man selling produce on Camp Drive. We had wondered why he closed so suddenly.

    We are retired and on a fixed income and it was very convenient for us to stop by on our way to or from the shopping areas instead of driving miles to find fresh produce. We also enjoyed visiting while buying produce.

  • Team's 53.6 tops field

    The winning foursome teamed for a tough win in the annual Catawba Lions golf tournament at the Lancaster Golf Club on Saturday afternoon.

    The tournament, which drew 13 teams, featured a captain’s choice format with a team handicap established.

    The team handicaps are established using the players’ individual handicaps.

    The foursome of Gary Greene, Haskell Faulkenberry, Larry Snyder and Don Baxley combined to shoot a 53.6 to take a close win and the $1,000 first-place prize.

  • Relay teams aim to raise $205,000

    The annual Lancaster County Relay for Life is today and organizers are hoping the event will hit its $205,000 goal. The money is used to help fund cancer research and American Cancer Society programs.

    “The Relay is from the heart,” said event co-chairwoman Donna Parsons. “There are very few people in Lancaster who can say they haven’t had a friend or family member impacted by cancer in one way or another. All of the teams and volunteers have been working as hard as they can.”

  • Down pat

    Lancaster High culinary arts teacher Gregg Shipston wasn’t a bit surprised when Rachelle Campbell became the school’s first student to earn a ProStart certification.

    “Since the class started, I’ve had close to 175 students,” Shipston said. “If I would’ve had my pick as to who would be our first certified student, it would be Rachelle. She’s very self-motivated.”

    ProStart is a two-year, flexible self-pace career program for students interested in the culinary arts.

  • A mother's pain

    For Dianne Cole, every hour of every day is different.

    She may be OK one minute and burst into tears the next.

    It’s been that way for almost five months now, since her son, Edward Paul “Little Gene” Jenkins, 30, died unexpectedly.

    Hers is the kind of pain that comes from losing a child. She never dreamed her son’s life could be taken away in an instant.

  • 'Indiana' will find treasure out back

    I’m a big Indiana Jones fan. Old “Indy” is always running across some forgotten treasure that’s long been abandoned.

    I recall when I did the same thing.

    Some men were stringing barbed wire fence along a piece of bottom land next to the creek.

    Mama had a lunch for them and I was left alone to wander (and wonder). “Keep out of trouble,” she said.

    Now this briarpatch I was about to explore had some interesting characteristics.
