    Hazel Knight recalls Main Street, Lancaster, as it was more than 60 years ago. Knight was 11 years old in 1943 when he went to work for James and Etta Robinson in their clothing store. He swept and mopped the wooden floors and dusted the counters and shelves and ran errands.

  • Ida Claire! – Great Falls women start cheesecake company

    They have a wholesalers license and their product is certified as a South Carolina product. In fact, Barbara Lyles and Barbara Hilton even have a certificate from the Department of Homeland Security.

    “We are certified as not being terrorists,” Lyles said.

    Their product is made in South Carolina and they are licensed to sell. Homeland Security might want to rethink their designation, though, because the cheesecakes Lyles and Hilton make in their small business are definitely “the bomb.”

    Credit cards have become so common that many people frown when an establishment doesn’t accept them for payment.
    Lately, staff at Kershaw Town Hall have been met with confused looks and several questions when customers find out they can’t use their card to pay a bill or fine.
    Officials are now looking to change that. Town Council voted 6-0 at its Monday meeting to begin the process to accept credit and debit cards as a method of payment. Councilman Randy Seegars was absent.
