  • Officer helps local resident get refrigerator

    Several Saturdays ago I was having a yard sale. A sheriff’s deputy, whose name is Jason, pulled up and started talking to me.

    As we talked, I told Jason I would offer him a cold drink, but my refrigerator had gone out. He said I really needed to have a refrigerator and I told him I was going to get one when I got the money.

    He asked me my name and I told him.

  • LCPR grateful for fair support

    Lancaster County Parks and Recreation is grateful for all the vendors and donations given to support our career fair, held June 15 at Buford Recreation Center. The career fair could not have been possible without them.

    We cannot thank the vendors and businesses enough. They are the reason the career fair was such a success.

  • Make sure prescriptions are filled correctly

    I would like to warn people to make sure their medications are being filled properly. I have had several incidents where my prescriptions had incorrect dosages – at different pharmacies. You need to check your prescriptions – not once, but twice – and make sure they are correct.

    It is a common practice now to send prescriptions to pharmacies via a computer. But even that doesn’t always work. I’ve stood beside the doctor as he sent the prescription and yet the pharmacy said it never got the order.

  • S.C. jobs are in jeopardy

    For more than 50 years, Morrison Textile Machinery has been a major employer in the Lancaster County area, a region that is growing at a rapid pace.

    Lancaster is the fastest-growing county in South Carolina and the 26th fastest in the United States. York County is the fourth fastest-growing in the state and 68the fastest in the United States.

  • Focus on victims’ families, then on Confederate flag

    I would like to start by saying that I am disappointed that the conversation in South Carolina – largely driven by those outside our state – has been focused on a flag, rather than the victims of a heinous crime and their courageous and forgiving families.

    While I always welcome debate on a divisive issue, I prefer that debate not come on the heels of a tragedy before the victims have even been laid to rest.

  • Remove flag from S.C. Capitol grounds

    If the S.C. General Assembly doesn’t get the Confederate battle flag off the Statehouse grounds after what happened in Charleston last week, then we may as well replace the Palmetto Tree on the proper state flag – the beautiful blue one – with a swastika.

    I’m sick of the cockeyed excuses from state politicians about why the Confederate flag issue is so complicated.

  • Confederate heritage group issues statement on massacre

    On the night of June 17, an attempt was made to break the spirit of all South Carolinians. The deranged mind of a horrendous individual entered Emanuel AME Church in Charleston and took the lives of nine admirable individuals.

    This historic house of God became the scene of a brutal massacre beyond understanding. We all contemplate, why did this happen? Perhaps this is a question that cannot be answered. What kind of a world are we leaving behind for our children, when you can’t go into God’s house without the threat of being gunned down?

  • Pay tribute to Daddy on Father’s Day

    Our Daddy, Jack Caskey, left this world on May 15, 2015, after having been in hospice care since September 2014.

    First of all, my sincere prayer is that every daughter has a wonderful father in their life. I know that I am looking through rose-colored glasses, if I think this is always true, but my sisters and I were the blessed ones.

    Daddy was an amazing man, to his children, to many, many Boy Scouts, to many children and young people whom he worked with in his beloved church.
