  • Thank you for supporting our state champs

    Lancaster Dixie Youth Baseball is a non-profit agency that strives to teach children how to play a competitive sport while teaching good sportsmanship and teamwork. We believe that keeping children constructively active can keep our youth out of trouble.

    In our 2014 season, we had all five leagues, ages 4-14, win the district title.

  • Plan now to support veterans at annual parade

    Lancaster County’s annual Veterans Day parade and program is set for Nov. 9.

    Lineup starts at 11 a.m. at the Lancaster County Courthouse parking lot on Dunlap Street. The parade will start at noon as it proceeds from Dunlap Street onto Main Street ending at the American Legion. The program will start about 1 p.m. at the American Legion.

  • Church dedicates park, walking track

    The United Bible Way Church of Lancaster dedicated the Hillside Memorial Park and Walking Track on Sunday, Sept. 9. The church family and invited guests gathered under the shelter and listened to Pastor Kenny Rose as he proclaimed what God had given the church and to the greater Lancaster community.

    Kenji Mackey, the coordinator for the walking trail, shared Pastor Rose’s God-given vision to emphasize how important exercise is to our health, especially walking.

  • Application processing for professionals lacking
  • Our world experiencing fulfillment of prophecy

    Among the many wars throughout world include those in Israel and Iraq. The Bible predicts numerous wars and plagues will hit the Earth. AIDS and HIV diseases originated in Africa. Now Africa suffers with the deadly Ebola. If it hits the United States it would probably wipe out much of our population. It could happen. With all the travelers someone is bound to bring it back to the U.S.

    Are these examples of the fulfillment of the Bible’s prophecy? There will be a war above all wars.

  • Try praying, not protesting in Ferguson

    I am writing in response to the violence in Ferguson, Mo. It truly hurts me to see what is happening there. My thoughts and my prayers go out to the family of Michael Brown.

    Have we forgotten that prayer changes things, not violent protesting? It is time to “let go and let God.” Look up to where our help comes from. He answers prayers in his time, not ours.

    Help Mr. Brown’s family. Don’t hurt them in the way you are protesting.

    Peace and calm are the keys to this situation. Jesus said it, “Peace be still.”

  • The numbers reveal why S.C. roads so bad

    There is near unanimity that the condition of our state’s roads is in serious decline. However, there is debate as to why. Our roads are an asset, and as with most assets their condition can be measured by numbers.

    What follows are figures that must be considered to make South Carolina’s roads and bridges as safe and smooth as they were a generation ago.

    S.C. Taxes and Fees

    u South Carolina ranks No. 4 among 50 states in miles of state-maintained roads with 41,460 miles

    u South Carolina ranks No 3 among states in lowest fuel tax

  • Clear choice for solicitor is defined

    This is a partial response to Sandy McGarry’s article, “Local voters have clear choice in solicitor’s race,” in the Aug. 31 edition of The Lancaster News.

    Ms. McGarry states that her candidate, Randy Newman, is a “passionate” prosecutor. This implies to me that he is a “soft” prosecutor who would not waste time indicting criminals, but let them go on “probation” to free up the backlog of pending criminal cases in our 6th Circuit.

  • Drivers should respect stopped school buses
  • Abandoned shopping carts creates havoc in parking lots

    John Richard’s letter addressing  the ills displayed by grocery store shoppers in the Aug. 31 edition of The Lancaster News probably earned him “Atta Boys” from readers all over the region.
