    The Ozone stars fell to Greenwood, 5-3, in the opening round Saturday and then dropped a tough 5-4 loss to Hilton Head on Sunday afternoon.

    There was a huge crowd for the racing action at Lancaster Super Speedway on Saturday, July 11.

    In the Faith Funderburke Realty Super Stock Division, the front row was Andy “Pops” Hodges and Joseph Engelbrecht. When the green flag fell, it was Hodges, Engelbrecht, Johnny Starkey and Kyle Norwood battling for the lead entering turn one.

  • Turning the page – One SC

    As these words are being written, the ceremony of lowering the Confederate flag at the capital is happening – literally.

    In the end, it simply came down.

    There were no speeches by politicians. There were not bands playing. There were no elaborate ceremonies. It all ended with seven state troopers – white and black, male and female – silently walking across the capital lawn, lowering the flag, rolling it up and giving it to a nameless state employee to be taken to a museum.

    That was it.

  • Providence fulfilled in past, future

    The book of Ruth demonstrates the providence of God. It occurred during the days of the judges, when “every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” When there was a famine in Israel, Elimelech and Naomi left their home in Bethlehem to sojourn in the land of Moab.

    Tragedy followed. Elimelech died, leaving Naomi and her two sons, Mahlon and Chilion. They married Moabite women, but then both died after about 10 years in Moab. When Naomi heard that the famine had ended in Israel, she decided to return home.
