  • AJ Lady Vols looking to continue softball success

    KERSHAW The Andrew Jackson Lady Volunteers hope a blend of five seasoned seniors and first-year softball players leading nine returning players is a staple for diamond success this season.

    The Lady Vols, 20-11 last season while winning their 10th straight conference title, return five seniors who have a sterling four-year record of 114-25.

  • Council needs to reconsider blocked exit

    I do not live directly on Rock Street or Willow Lake Road, but I travel on it once or more a day. I have grandchildren on Marion Street. I live on Arch Street at the corner of Caskey Lane. I turn on Rock Street to get to Marion Street where a sister-in-law lives in the Rock Street Apartments. My husband takes her to pay her bills, to doctors appointments and other outings. He has to turn right on Willow lake Road to get to the bypass because the back exit from Pardue Apartments is blocked.

  • Radical action needed, huh?

    I read with much enjoyment a lot of letters to the editor. It’s always been interesting to see what people think because people in and of themselves are fascinating.

    The March 11 letter by Mark Grier, “Radical action needed to clean up the economy,” begs a response though because he has two questions and makes an absurd statement.

    First, I would like to answer his questions. He begins by pointing out that the Republicans controlled Congress for 12 years and asks why they didn’t do something about the problem.

  • Prayer answer to our problems

    A few weeks ago I was extended what I consider a great privilege to eulogize a young man, 15 years of age who was so needlessly shot at a recreation center. I say a great privilege because his family chose me to do such a task.

  • Lancers hope to rebound

    The University of South Carolina at Lancaster Lancers will look to get back on track and for favorable weather today.

    USCL, after being swept, was rained out of its Sunday afternoon home twin bill with the FDTC Stingers.

    “It wasn’t a good weekend for us,” USCL coach Steve Williams said. “We were swept and then we were a rain casualty Sunday.
