    Thank you, Indian Land residents, for your outpouring of support in our effort to have Thomas Concrete held to the letter of the law in Lancaster County.

  • Today's Recipe

    When it comes to adding variety, flavor and aroma to foods, herbs and spices have been used for centuries.

    “Spices were once so costly only the wealthy could afford them. In 11th century Europe, many towns paid their taxes and rent in pepper,” said dietitian and educator Alice Henneman, author of “Add a Little Spice (& Herbs) to Your Life!”

    While it is a given that spices and herbs both come from for plants, that’s where the similarity ends, said Ann Hertzler of Virginia Cooperative Extension Service.
