  • Schools should prepare kids for game of life

    I’m amazed by the amount of time and energy schools invest in our young men’s athletic careers. Yet, only 60 seconds is given to an athlete’s academic standing. There are too many athletes being passed from one grade to another just because they are great athletes. But their reading skills and math skills are below performance level.

  • Homeless shelter might have helped Henry Hearn

    I have never written in The Lancaster News before now. I was waiting my turn in the doctor’s office and picked up The Lancaster News to read about Henry Hearn hanging in the county detention center. I do not know him and never heard his name.

    It troubles me to know that someone homeless and living in the woods can be arrested for criminal domestic violence. How is this man supposed to fight these charges when he doesn’t even have the cash to buy food or cigarettes? I’m not a drinker, but if I were in his position I may consider taking a drink myself.

  • Investigation shows no employees removed signs

    A recent Lancaster News story reported that pizza signs have been allegedly removed and discarded by Lancaster County employees.

  • Writer proud to be an American

    After volunteering with the Americans Feeding Americans on Sept. 19, it makes me very proud to be an American. I met volunteers from several different states and all over our county – some were pros and some first-timers – giving of their time to help their fellow Americans.

    As we fellowshipped with each other, smiling, passing out hope of better times and letting others know we cared, we were in turn met with smiles, some with happy tears, thanks and “May God bless you.”

    It was like Christmas in September.

  • Fall into fun at annual IL festival

    It’s almost show time for the fourth annual Fall into Fun festival in Indian Land. Saturday’s festival at Indian Land Middle School promises to be a lot of fun for everyone from toddlers to teens and older folks, all for a good cause.

    This year’s event has a slightly different goal than the past three festivals.

    The name of the company has not been released, but the county is labeling it “Project Colorado” for now.

  • Williams anchors LHS line

    If there’s one fact Lancaster High School offensive line coach Joe Watson can count on from Bruins’ senior tackle Brian Williams, it’s a dirty uniform.

    “If you’re an offensive lineman and your uniform is clean at the end of the game, then something isn’t quite right,” Watson said. “For Brian, we can count on a dirty uniform.
