  • Graduates who inspire: Knight an inspiration for other students at Carolina Christian Academy

    Carolina Christian Academy senior Kendall Knight doesn’t hesitate when you ask him if he has a favorite Bible verse.
    The words come sure and unhesitating, as if relied upon in time of need, repeated as encouragement, recalled as a guiding declaration of faith.
    “Sure. It’s 1 John 4:4[b], ‘greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world,’” Knight says. “I’ve even got it stitched on one of my hats.”

  • Column: New GOP leadership lights fires

    I often wonder what happened to my once-quiet, retired life on Red Rose Ranch, but I do not regret my decision to run for chairwoman of the Lancaster County Republican Party.
    It has been almost two months since our county reorganization, where we elect officers for our party. I am excited to introduce our very energetic team: I am the chairwoman; Donnie Jones, executive committeeman; Kevin Moughan, vice chair; Roger Summey, second vice chair; Brian Carnes, secretary and John Plyler, treasurer.

  • Chalk walkin'

    Erwin Elementary School special needs teacher LeAnne White found a surprise in her classroom Monday. 

    It was a photo of one of her students, 8-year-old Morgan Knight, taken near an “In honor of” sign with White’s name on it at the first annual Chalk Walk on May 14, along with an event T-shirt.

    “I cried,” White said. “It was very sweet for her to do that.”

    The Chalk Walk is a 3.1 mile fun run to honor teachers and raise money for the Buford High School Future Educators Association (FEA).

  • Walking home stirs childhood memories

    While vacationing in Maryland, I got one of those phone calls nobody likes.

    It seems that a hailstorm damaged the roof of our “Charlotte Road” home. 

    Somebody (not me) decided that I should make the trip back south by myself to check everything out and call the insurance company, if necessary.

    So much for my spring getaway. Sometimes this retirement gig ain’t all it’s cracked up to be.
