  • Mike Rao remembered at Blue Alert bill signing

    A Lancaster native who died in the line of duty was remembered as Gov. Nikki Haley signed a measure into law that aims to protect the state’s law enforcement officers.

    On March 6, Haley signed the Blue Alert bill on the Statehouse steps in Columbia. Her action allows for the creation of an alert system that will inform the public when an officer is injured, abducted or killed.

  • Firsts fill the life of Don Funderburk

    I can prove it. The next time you’re on vacation or an extended trip out of town, find a grocery store that has a lot of paper boxes loaded with various local newspapers or a mall with an old-fashioned newsstand.

    If you see someone come up, and stare at the wide array of papers available, then fish change from their pocket or pocketbooks to buy one copy of each fish wrapper, I’d wager that person isn’t bored.

  • Luck of the Irish

    It’s Tuesday afternoon, March 6, a late-winter day turned glorious spring on Fishing Creek Lake in Fort Lawn.

    Six-year-old Ethan Turner of Lancaster is outside his family’s get-away home crawling around on his hands and knees, head down and peering into an emerald patch of clover.

    It’s one of his favorite things to do.

    “Here’s one,” he says and holds up a four-leaf clover between his tiny fingers.

    Two or three minutes later he finds another. Then another.
