  • Day 2 exciting with school visit, match

    Editor’s note: Sarah Katherine DeVenny, a rising senior at Lancaster High School and a member of the Lancaster Fútbol women’s team, is writing about the team’s recent visit to Panama.

    The second day in Panama began with another training session during which we worked on our technique on the hotel tennis court.

    After extracting as much energy from us as possible at 6 a.m., coach Bo Sylvia let us shower and eat breakfast. We sleepily got ready to visit our first Panamanian school, Academia Interamericana de Panamá.

  • LDB salutes its elite performers

    Lancaster Dixie Baseball capped its 2010 season, honoring top players, coaches and teams at the Wylie Park Complex on Thursday night.

    An annual highlight of the LDB awards night is the presentation of the Dixie Boys Matt Blackwell Sportsmanship Award.

    A.J. Collins, who played for Anderson Jewelers, was the 2010 recipient as Skip Small, a Lancaster Dixie Baseball product who is now on the Matt Blackwell Foundation Board, made the presentation.

    The award is given in memory of the late Lancaster Dixie Baseball player who died in a 2001 auto accident.

  • 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.
