  • Patrol to be out in force for holiday

    Listen up, New Year partiers. This is your fair warning: Find yourself a designated driver or stay home. Because if you drink and drive this weekend, there’s a good chance you’re going to cross paths with law enforcement officers.
    The campaign taking place this weekend is called Sober or Slammer and involves a range of law enforcement organizations focused on one goal – keeping drunk drivers off the road.

  • A look at the top 10 stories of 2010

    The Lancaster News, like many other newspapers, looks back at the top stories at the end of a year.
    Here are the stories that we put on our Top 10 list for 2010:

  • Town targets sagging pants

    GREAT FALLS – Pull up your pants or be fined.
    That’s the gist of the ordinance Great Falls Town Council gave first reading approval to Dec. 20.
    Mayor Don Camp presented the ordinance to council.
    “This is primarily to stop what we see everyday on the street,” Camp said.
    “Great Falls Town Council recognizes that our young people are a product of their environments, and, therefore, it is important that the adults around them demonstrate qualities which best characterize Great Falls,” the ordinance said.

  • Fashion dream becomes a reality

    INDIAN LAND – Fashion is a dream job for many young women, but Annelise Manns is making it her reality.
    “You can’t hope for it, you have to force your foot in the door,” said Manns.
    That determination has paid off with two stints at New York City’s Fashion Week and a summer internship in New York City working for a fashion designer to help them launch a new line of women’s clothing.

  • Celebrate New Year, but be safe

    It’s hard to believe 2010 is nearly over. Despite the fact that economists say we’ve now been in a economic recovery for more than a year, 2010 was still a hard year, especially for the nearly 15 percent of us still out of work in Lancaster County.
    But the news here in Lancaster County wasn’t all bad. This year, we’ve seen a number of significant openings. The new Walmart in Indian Land, a prototype superstore, and ALDI, the area’s third grocery store, both opened in August.

  • Why ‘stimulus’ didn’t work

    I was recently contacted by a reporter who wanted me to share my thoughts on the “stimulus” and whether it had been successful.
     I told her that the stimulus didn’t work, especially not the way Washington said it would.
     There’s no joy in saying that the stimulus act – a record-shattering spending spree that was advertised as a sure-fire way to jump start our economy – was a failure.

  • Dark to light

    In celebration of the holiday season, the homes of Lancaster are decorated with ribbons, lights, and greenery inside and out.   
    For this reason, the December Yard of the Month is not only selected for landscape design but also for the festive decorations that enhance it.
    With this in mind, the Lancaster Council of Garden Clubs selected the home of Rick and Dean DuRant, 1405 Somerset Drive.
    “This is a charming brick home. The holiday decorations work beautifully from day into night,” said Joyce Morin of the Lancaster Garden Club.
