    The Lancaster Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association toured Dixie Bee Supply and Country Store last month to shop, get the buzz on bees, taste locally made raw honey, sample naturally-made skin lotions and observe how to use a manual honey extractor.  

    The association is a group of 25 gardeners and small-scale commercial farmers interested in learning about gardening, farming and farm-related businesses. 

  • Column: Pastor responds to a personal wrong

    In order to protect myself from becoming overly cynical and critical of the human family, I choose to believe that most people are honest and decent.

    We certainly see this in times of tragedy and devastation as we have seen with the outpouring of love and compassion in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, and will see after Hurricane Irma.

  • Column: Why spend tax money to assess eclipse impact?

    The S.C. Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism (PRT) is spending money to find out how much the state made off the eclipse.

    According to PRT’s newsletter, museums, state parks, etc. were sold out or nearly sold out due to this “rare celestial event.” It goes on to say: “Because this type of anecdotal evidence is so strong all across South Carolina, we’re excited about seeing the final picture. We hope it informs us of the true economic impact of such an historic event.”

  • Cycs ignite to bury Bruins

    Chester High football coach Victor Floyd said it was a matter of the Cyclones finding their rhythm, and when they did, they rolled.

    The 3-1 Cycs ignited for 36 second-half points on the way to a 43-22 win over Lancaster in the 50th anniversary home opener at Lancaster Memorial Stadium on Friday night.

    The Bruins, 1-2, rallied from a 7-0 halftime deficit to tie the game on quarterback Kemarkio Cloud’s 12-yard scoring dash with 10:38 to play in the third period.

    Cloud, for the night, ran for 116 yards on 12 carries.

    MONROE, N.C. – Buford remained perfect on the season, outlasting the Parkwood Rebels of Union County, N.C., 27-24 for the Jackets’ third win of the season, first on the road.

    Buford held off a determined Parkwood team and sealed the win by recovering an onside kick with 1:39 left.

    Buford, who led the whole game, relied on its defense in the second half to secure the win.  

  • Mangum doubles down with two wins

    On Saturday night, the leader of Timbo Nation (as Timbo Mangum fans say, there is one nation and that is Timbo Nation.) put on a show for his fans at Lancaster Super Speedway.

    Mangum captured his first Super Stock win since May 10, 2014.

    In the SECA Crate Late Model main event, the front row was Timbo Mangum and Hank Taylor. When the green flag dropped to start the race, Mangum, Taylor, Kelly Fetger and Pat Linsday roared into turn one battling for the lead.

    Exiting turn two, Mangum led while Taylor, Fetger and Linsday chased.

  • Centurions rally, down Warriors

    The song remains the same in the early season for the Indian Land Warriors.

    Friday night, Indian Land went toe to toe with the host Broome Centurions, but ultimately succumbed, 27-16, thanks to their own mistakes, Broome’s running game, and the Centurion defense.

    Broome went three-and-out on their first drive, and things went from bad to worse for the Centurions.
