  • Bruins have right to kick up their heels

    The Lancaster High School Bruins’ soccer teams are getting it done – on the field and in the classroom.
    Recent news about the LHS teams’ (girls and boys) academic success bears out the claim.
    The Lady Bruins posted an overall 4.3 GPA (grade-point average) for the 2010-11 school term, while the LHS boys finished with an overall 3.4 GPA.
    Obviously, the Bruins’ soccer squads are using their noggins for more than headers.
    The success of the teams has been duly noted.

  • Exports are a bright spot for S.C. economy

    If there is one thing many of us have unfortunately gotten used to over the past three years, it’s bad news about the economy. Layoffs, higher unemployment and lower expectations have become almost the norm.
    And while we know firsthand that this news is real, it isn’t the only side of the story. In fact, there is some good news out there as well. Exports, for example, are one place where things are looking much better. 
    Each year, more and more people around the world are buying products from South Carolina.

    The Artisans Center in downtown Lancaster has closed – at least for now.
    The center, which opened in 2009 on Main Street in the old Badcock furniture store, served as a location for arts classes, performances and exhibits that showcased works by local and nationally known artists.
    Its last day was Aug. 31.
    Local artist Christina Chastain, who founded and managed the center, said funding became a major issue, as there wasn’t enough support to help pay monthly expenses.

  • PCI to unveil 9/11 memorial

    Instead, PCI Group President Chris Kropac Jr. has a special celebration planned for the day – the unveiling of a 9/11 memorial.
