  • Column: Apostles were protected by God

    In Acts 5, the wonder-working apostles won multitudes to Christ, but the jealous rulers of the Jews rose up to oppose them. They arrested and jailed all the apostles, but God intervened by sending one of his angels by night to open the prison doors and lead them out. 

    He then told them: "Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life." The next morning they resumed teaching the people there.

  • Column: President is getting a raw deal

    Like everyone who watches the news, I have been inundated with the story of the protest in Charlottesville.
    After days of watching CNN, NBC, CBS, Fox News and MSNBC, I’m troubled by the lack of focus on what actually happened in Charlottesville last Saturday. Most of the coverage has concerned President Trump’s comments about the event.
    Many of the news outlets are not reporting news as much as taking another opportunity to display their political bias and hatred toward Trump.

  • Column: Trump’s half-hearted rebuke no surprise

    When I saw TV coverage of last weekend’s events in Charlottesville, Va., I had a hard time distinguishing some of the civilians from the police and National Guard.
    Some of them arrived in camouflage and riot gear, wearing helmets and protective vests. A few carried guns.
    Some of these armed protesters openly identified themselves as “Unite the Right” supporters to reporters on the scene. The allegiance of others was not as clear.
    It seemed to me they were spoiling for a fight. And they made sure they got one.

  • Bakers’ show dominates at LSS

    On a hot and eventful night, the father-son duo of Brandy and Andrew Baker shined.

    The race had no heat races because when the heats were about to start, a power line caught fire.

    Lancaster Super Speedway owner Doug McManus called Duke Power to fix the problem.

    The racing program started on a draw and run. LSS officials thanked the fans and drivers for waiting patiently for the power to get fixed. LSS also thanks Duke Power for its help.

  • Bruins win in Chester jamboree

    The Lancaster Bruins finished strong to notch a 23-8 win over Columbia High (Ga.) in the Chester Jamboree on Friday night.

    LHS bolted to a 9-0 lead before the CHS Eagles sliced the gap to 9-8.

    The Bruins used a 14-0 finish to seal the 15-point win.

    LHS, up 9-8, responded with an 80-yard drive, with Ason’ta Clark going in from nine-yards out for a 16-8 lead.

    Jacob Cato, who kicked two extra points, drilled the second of his two point-afters.

    A Will Burton fumble recovery at the CHS nine set up the Bruins’ final score.

  • South teams for Classic win

    BUFORD – The South was once again superior in taking football bragging right in the annual North-South Classic at Buford High School’s Jackets Stadium on Saturday night.

    The South Carolina football forces – all four Lancaster County squads – teamed for the triumph over the North Carolina schools in the annual North-South Classic, a prep football scrimmage. The South won 35-20 in 2016.

  • Roberts holds off Tucker to defend club championship

    Newly crowned Lancaster Golf Club champion Scott Roberts mused in the pro shop after winning his fifth LGC title Sunday, he was headed home for a possible mid-afternoon nap.

    That rest was deserved after Roberts, in defending his club crown, won a links battle with upstart Lancaster High School freshman golfer Mason Tucker.

    Tucker, 14, nipped at Roberts’ heels over two days and 36 holes before the seasoned Roberts, 46, was able to hold him off for a five-stroke win.

  • Column: Charlottesville terror demands strong response

    There is nothing “right” about racism and hate. It’s a learned disease, and the best antidote is unity.
    This weekend’s events involving white-supremacist groups are as disturbing and disgusting as they are heartbreaking. The attack was a stark reminder of the darkness of hate. We must come together, as we have before, to confront the issues that chip away at the very foundation of who we are and what we stand for as a country.

  • Man shot in Clinton Avenue home invasion

    A man was shot early Tuesday in a home-invasion robbery at his Clinton Avenue residence, and police are looking for information about three suspects in the case.

    The victim, whose identity was not released, is in stable condition at Springs Memorial Hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound, the statement said.
