  • Be safe, have fun on the Fourth of July

    The United States of America will celebrate its 236th birthday today.
    The midsummer holiday commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring America’s independence from Great Britain.
    It is a day of celebration, from the backyard to the pool, river or the beach. Popular forms of celebration and observance include picnics, parades, cookouts, concerts, baseball games and family reunions.
    Before embarking on that special celebration, we encourage you to take in the true meaning of the day.

  • Skateboarders, officials work together for Kershaw park

    Persistence personified can be found in the group of area youth who have pushed for a skateboard park in Lancaster County.
    The group, led by Dustin Owens and his skateboard-loving followers, have frequented area government council meetings in the past year, pushing for a skateboard park.
    They’ve been to city and county council meetings in hopes of a solution, but it appears they may have found their future hopes at the Kershaw Town Council.

  • Lynch’s comments about county unacceptable

  • Justice system allows criminals free rein

    Every time I pick up The Lancaster News, I see another murder, another home invasion, someone getting robbed and beaten, sexually assaulted or burglarized.
    The pathetic (one of many) part is – it’s the same person doing the crimes over and over again. We can’t blame the officers who make the arrests – they’re doing their jobs. They’re getting them off the streets and putting them behind bars.

  • Gamecocks still have lots to crow about

    The South Carolina Gamecocks brought home a handsome trophy from Omaha on Tuesday afternoon to a large throng of garnet and black-clad USC fans at Carolina Stadium.
    It wasn’t the biggest prize the Gamecocks had hoped for, but it was a coveted trophy.
    Plenty of teams would have loved to be bearing the runner-up trophy from the College World Series, and the Gamecocks were.
    The two-time defending national champions had hoped to bring home another national crown for the third straight June.
