  • Nucor tourney honors Craig, boosts youth

    The 10th annual Nucor Steel Berkeley golf tournament, held in memory of Lancaster native Jamie Craig, enjoyed its second-best tournament in terms of funds raised.

    The one-day tournament raised $321,809 after a $254,332 effort in 2009.

    “We were well pleased,” said Buffy Fortner, a Nucor Steel cost accountant who has worked with the tournament for 10 years, including the last eight as chairman. “It’s really amazing. It’s all about the love of kids.”

  • Have a safe, fun summer

    Every year about this time, we wish our readers a happy summer, but we also like to remind you to be careful when you’re out having fun. Much of the advice we give, you’ve surely heard many, many times before.

    Wear sunscreen when you’re outside. Sunburns not only cause temporary pain, but can lead to skin cancer later on.

  • Supreme Court should include miltary veteran

     

  • Learning and having fun

    A collection of Silly Bandz was the hot topic among a group of youngsters at the Hi-Kee summer camp Wednesday.

    Although those participants were excited about the popular rubber bands, you’d soon see that was just one of several things discussed during the day. Enrichment exercises took up a big part of their time.

    The Hi-Kee camp, held at Steele Hill AME Zion Church on Charlotte Highway, began June 7 and runs through July.

  • Great Falls man, 28, hospitalized after shooting on Tripp Lane

    A Great Falls man was injured in a shooting at a home on Tripp Lane on Tuesday night.

    According to a Lancaster County Sheriff's Office incident report, deputies were called to the home about 10 p.m. because of a shooting.

    When deputies arrived, they found the 28-year-old man lying on the floor in the bedroom. He had a gunshot wound to his abdomen, the report said.

  • Press should be free

    If a recently released Federal Trade Commission discussion draft entitled, “Potential Policy Recommendations to Support the Reinvention of Journalism,” should ever actually be adopted as law, the press will no longer be free, in any sense of the word.

  • Writer: House criminals in nursing homes

    I think senior citizens should be housed in jails and criminals in nursing homes. This way the senior citizens would have access to showers, hobbies and walks.

    They’d receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, and they’d receive money instead of paying it out. They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly if they fell or needed assistance. Bedding would be washed twice a week and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.

  • Writer: Don’t use tax money for festivals

    I recently read an article about the Red Rose Festival in Lancaster. It truly concerned me. Despite our troubled economy our government footed the $40,000 bill for this event. This was unbelievable. 

    We, the citizens of Lancaster County, have lost jobs, homes and can’t afford to pay our utilities.

  • Newspaper failed to note D-Day significance

    Sunday, June 6, was the 66th anniversary of D-Day – the Normandy invasion that marked a major turning point in the outcome of World War II and led to the liberation of Europe.

    Some 2,000 men gave their lives that fateful day so that we could enjoy the liberty we have today.

  • Nurse: White Oak cares for its patients

    I would like to respond to Ronald Hopkins’ letter, “Writer: House criminals in nursing homes,” in the May 30 edition of The Lancaster News.

    First of all, I am sorry he had a bad experience with a nursing home. And I feel, as he does, that our prison system rewards those who do not obey the laws. But he is wrong to say that nursing homes give poor care and residents are treated badly.
