    The club, EQUIP, is part of Able South Carolina, a self-empowerment nonprofit group. EQUIP, which will hold its first ILHS meeting this week, is for individuals with disabilities ages 13 through 28.
    “People with disabilities are often severely underestimated…,” Trumpower said. “That is not fair.”

  • Remember When: One last Main Street stroll with Mr. Bill

    Editor’s note: When Bill Evans passed away in July, we had a few of his recent columns stockpiled, waiting to run. With his family’s permission, we have continued to publish them in his honor. Alas, this is the final one.

    Well sir, three or four of us local boys had just finished going over the latest newspapers over at the library and decided to sit a spell under the shade trees.
    Just over to one side was Lancaster’s main drag. All of us had grown up on that six or seven blocks of history.

  • Column: Prime example of the S.C. oligarchy

    The term “legislative state” gets thrown around a lot by people trying to describe our state’s power structure. That’s supposed to make our gross imbalance of power seem like a reasonable alternative – a “legislative state,” as opposed to an “executive state,” sounds like a legitimate thing.

  • Lancers top Crusaders, 1-0

    USCL freshman forward Pedro Loredo, off a Michael Cranford assist, scored the lone goal of the hard-fought match.
    Loredo’s goal came early in the second half when Cranford crossed the ball in and Loredo deftly redirected the kick with a header to the bottom left corner of the goal.

  • Wildcats blank Warriors, 20-0

    BLACKSBURG – Coming off an emotional, dramatic overtime win against rival Buford last week, the Indian Land Warriors traveled to a difficult place to play, Blacksburg.
    The Wildcats were hungry for their first win after a tough 24-22 loss to sixth-ranked Lewisville last Friday night.

    Indian Land had two scoring chances in the first half.

  • Unbeaten Lions top Jackets, 36-20

    RICHBURG – Buford traveled to Richburg to face the undefeated Lewisville Lions Thursday night, instead of the regular-scheduled Friday night game because of the approaching tropical storm Hermine.
    The No. 6 Lions outlasted the upset-minded Yellow Jackets 36-20 to push their record to 3-0.  It's Lewisville’s first 3-0 start since the 2000 season.
    Both teams moved the ball well, Lewisville on the ground and Buford through the air.  The Lions and Jackets combined for a total of 772 yards of offense.

  • Cato gives FM the boot, 16-14

    Jacob Cato’s first-ever field goal will have a lasting place in his highlight memory bank.
    Cato’s 25-yarder with 12.7 seconds to play lifted ninth-ranked Lancaster High School to an exciting 16-14 win over Class AAAAA foe Fort Mill High School at Memorial Stadium on Thursday night.
    The game was played Thursday, a day earlier than scheduled, with the expected impact of heavy rain from Hurricane Hermine over the weekend.
    The sky was dark in the early stages and as the night wore on, it became gloomier for the Bruins.
