  • Today's Recipe

    Nancy K. Starnes found this Peach Pound Cake recipe in the S.C. Farmers Market Bulletin. Submitted to the publication by Jackie Blanton of Gaffney, Starnes said the recipe took first place honors at the 2004 Gaffney Peach Festival.

    “I thought some readers may enjoy it since some peaches are still available,” she said. “I’ve made this cake two times and it is simply delicious. It makes a large pound cake and is worth every bit of the trouble.”

  • Caregivers deserve special recognition

    Caregivers play a special role in the lives of the ones they tend to each day.
    Their tasks and challenges are great, sometimes outweighing the needed thanks.
    That’s why those dedicated folks are special.
    Recently a Lancaster caregiver, Karen Hoffman, was honored for her work as a caring caregiver.
    Hoffman was presented the local Family Caregiver of the Year Award, an annual honor given by Homewatch Caregivers, which is an international provider of full-service home care, and co-sponsored by the National Family Caregivers Association.

  • We must not forget the true cost of our freedom

    This is the last Veterans Remembered column in a series written in support of the veterans monument being built for all veterans of Lancaster County.
    Veterans Remembered is written to stimulate readers to remember those veterans who touched their lives and to provide support for the Veterans Monument Project.
    Remembering is necessary and is a part of our character as individuals and as a community. Remembering veterans is necessary for historic purposes as well as providing moral understanding for present and future generations.

  • Vision in her eyes

    “I wear my sunglasses at night

    so I can, so I can

    Watch you weave, then breathe your story lines.”

    Samantha Rollings found the look by wearing “Sunglasses at Night.”

  • I found a friend in the swing man

    – Editor’s note: Mr. Evans is taking a well-deserved break this week. Due to reader response, we are reprinting this Remember When column, which was originally published in the July 26, 2009, edition of The Lancaster News. It is especially timely with the Lancaster County Fair opening Tuesday.

     

    They called it a carnival. For me, it was more or less a county fair wannabe.

    This small outfit popped into town during the lull of my summer vacation.

  • County seeks to amend budget

    It was round two for the county’s 2011-12 budget, as Lancaster County Council reversed course and added funding back in for several county services cut earlier this year.

    The amended budget was voted on during two meetings, with first reading held during council’s regular Monday meeting, and second reading held during a special meeting on Tuesday night. Council approved both readings, though the vote was not unanimous. 

    Council will hold a public hearing and hear final reading at its Sept. 26 meeting.

    The city of Lancaster is still looking to launch the last phase of its Main Street beautification project. However, work will depend on what type of funding officials receive. 

    City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to allow City Administrator Helen Sowell to submit a $500,000 grant application for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding, which has been a familiar source in the past.
