  • Don’t forget lessons of 9/11

    Ten years and the images are still as vivid as if it was only 10 minutes ago. The horrific sight of smoke billowing from the World Trade Center after terrorist-piloted suicide planes slammed into the buildings.
    Then there was the damage at the seemingly impregnable Pentagon and the plane crash in the Pennsylvania field, which, if not for some civilian heroes, might have struck the U.S. Capitol and killed key national leaders.

  • Memories of 9/11 fill a cardboard box

    When I was home visiting my family this summer, I opened a cardboard box that had been sealed for nearly 10 years. Inside were items I had carefully and reverently packed away, knowing that someday I would want to see them again – knowing that they were artifacts from a terrible time in our country’s history.

  • Determination helped us survive 9/11

    Memories of 9/11 take me back to the summer of 2001, a couple months prior to that tragic September day in our nation’s history.
    The week of July Fourth our family vacation took us to New York City.
    In the years before, we had opted for the annual family beach trip, but that summer we took a train north.
    Turns out it was a good decision because a tornado hit the Grand Strand that week. We were stunned with the news that most likely we would have been in the storm’s path.

  • Unbeaten Warriors rout Wolverines, 48-6

    WHITMIRE – Indian Land’s high-scoring attack hit the road for the second time in three weeks and rolled to the Warriors’ third straight win.

    Indian Land, rated No. 9 in the latest Class AA state football poll, ignited for a 41-6 halftime lead on the way to a 48-6 victory over winless Whitmire.

  • Bruins ignite, zap Jackets

     

       

    The Lancaster Bruins, much like an aroused bear, came to life in a hurry to score 20 points on the way to a 40-6 win over Buford at Memorial Stadium on Friday night.

  • Playoffs decide top finishers in Rotary golf tournament

    The winning team needed sudden death to win the annual  Rotary Club golf tournament at the Lancaster Golf Club on Thursday afternoon.

    The foursome of Buck Tucker, Bryan Forbis, Andy Caudill and Josh Tucker used a birdie on No. 13 to win in a card playoff.

  • 9/11 – Ten Years Later

    Cole Wadell is a Lancaster resident who was living in New York City during the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

     

    Y2K is history,

    Sparing us the predicted 

    interruptions and chaos.

    Tuesday has surprised us,

    Making our darkest notions of the Apocalypse appear all too real.

     

  • How do you explain 9/11 tragedy to our children?

    Marquis Crawford and Kate Pettit mark a milestone of sorts in the history of 9/11.

    Though only 13 years old, the A.R. Rucker Middle School eighth-graders stand on the cusp of a national memory as they are among the youngest Americans with first-hand memories of Sept. 11, 2001. 

    The last of a generation, in many ways.

    Though enveloped in the innocence of youth, that they and others their age have any memories of the tragedy at all is amazing.
