  • Local band Sugarshine debuts CD in crowd-pleasing show at Chastain’s

    The Red Rose City was rocking to smooth reggae last weekend, as more than 40 people streamed into Chastain’s Studio Lofts on Main Street to hear Lancaster’s five-man band Sugarshine.

    The roots reggae ensemble are lifelong friends and range in age from 27 to 44. The members have played in various bands together through the years. But this combination seems a bit magical to them.

    “We knew we had something special,” said Stuart Parsons, 41, keyboard player.

  • Commentary: Haley: Trump’s Jerusalem shift will advance Mideast peace

    Editor’s note: Former S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley, now the U.N. ambassador, appeared on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday to defend President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Host John Dickerson also asked her North Korea and about women who stepped forward again last week to repeat their accusations of sexual misbehavior against Trump. Here are excerpts of their discussion.

  • Column: Get ready to pay, pay, pay if Indian Land incorporates

    I read with interest the guest column by Jerry Holt on Nov. 29, where he raises the question of parity of Sheriff Barry Faile’s actual charges to Heath Springs and Kershaw and proposed charges to Indian Land, if incorporated. There are several observations I wish to make.
    First, the proposed increase of $15,000 (from $23,500 to $38,500 for coverage not provided 24/7) suggests, at a minimum, that costs to the sheriff’s office are going up.

  • Bruins win two over Cycs

    The Lancaster Bruins finished fast to cap a hoops sweep of the Class AAA Chester Cyclones on Tuesday night in the LHS gym.

    The Bruins, with a key fourth-period surge, took the lead and held on for the 77-71 win over the Cyclones.

    The LHS boys’ six-point win gave the Bruins a sweep after the Lady Bruins cruised to a 76-29 win over the Lady Cycs.

    The boys game was tighter as the Bruins and Cyclones battled to the wire.

    Lancaster, 5-2, held a 39-35 lead at the break and the game was close to the end.

  • Junior Jackets drop loss to Lee Central

    Lee Central edged the Buford High School junior varsity boys basketball team, taking a 39-38 win.

    Tyson Miller led the Junior Jackets with 16 points, 10 in the second half. Dacurrion Kelly hit 16 points to lead Lee Central.

    In the game, Buford opened strong, taking a 6-0 lead, but LCHS, using its pressure defense, rallied to take an 11-8 lead after one quarter.

    The teams played tough defense in the second period for a low-scoring quarter and the game was tied at 15 at the break.

  • Bruins thump Trojans twice

    The Lancaster Bruins are finding their hoops home to their liking.

    The LHS teams, unbeaten as the host so far this season, kept the streak intact Wednesday night with a hardwood broom job of Class AAAAA foe Northwestern High School of Rock Hill.

    Lancaster took two from the Trojans, prevailing 62-58 in the boys game and 60-39 in the girls’ game.

    The nightcap was a battle to the wire, with the Bruins making clutch plays to seal their four-point  win and avenge their lone regular-season loss.
