  • Evans family grateful for help after accident

    About 7:45 p.m. on July 13, my husband, our two children and I were on our way home from Chesterfield County after attending a funeral and visiting relatives.

    We were on Pageland Highway and it was raining. My husband was driving his truck and we began to slide like we were on ice.

    He lost total control and we hydroplaned and landed in a small embankment on the side of the road.

    It was the scariest thing I've ever encountered. I immediately began to call on God to protect us and keep us safe.

    It was a good night for racing Saturday at Lancaster Motor Speedway. In the Young Guns main event, David Yandle had the car to beat. As soon as he took the green flag he went straight to the front. He had no challengers for the top spot. He dominated the entire race and cruised into victory lane taking another win. He was followed by Josh Langley, Brandon Blackmon and Leah Sweatt, who was driving for Andrew Blackwood.

  • Saylors wins again at games

  • County's reserve fund 'adequate,' but not healthy

    The recent editorial concerning the need for additional funds for the Indian Land Library mentioned using the county’s “healthy reserve fund” for this purpose.

    Whether or not to use that funding is of course County Council’s decision, but I would not want your readers to think Lancaster County has a lot of money just sitting in the bank for no good reason.

    While I would call our reserve fund “adequate,” it is not healthy in the sense it is holding more than it should.
