  • Column: Reporter finds news of bin Laden saga intriguing

    The TV was on, my laptop computer was running and my cell phone was receiving dozens of text messages by the hour. These forms of communication, along with a few others, have been employed heavily in recent days as I’ve immersed myself in the news coverage of Osama bin Laden’s death.
    I was at home surfing the Internet the night of May 1 when a few Facebook friends said President Barack Obama would soon be addressing the nation regarding a “national-security issue.”

  • Letter: Thank you to all who helped with fundraiser for Andy Green

    Miracles happen when you have enough people believing, because of three things God gave us all – faith, hope and love. And the most important of these is love.
    That is what the ladies of Allure Beauty have most in their hearts and that is love, for they gave their love so that Andy Chance Green and his parents could have a true blessing in their lives.
    Delois, Ashley, Joni, Stacy, Teresa and Jana held a successful bake sale and fundraiser for Andy.
    We would like to thank everyone who brought baked goods for the bake sale.

  • Letter: Open letter to mayor and City Council

    I was shocked today (May 8) when I attended the worship service at my church, First United Methodist Church, 200 W. Gay St., Lancaster. As is the custom of our church, weekly worship services are held at 11 a.m. each Sunday. God had blessed this Mother’s Day with a beautiful, sunny day.
    As our services began, a pressure wash motor was started across the street, directly in front of the church. When I opened the front doors and looked out, there sat a truck backed up to the Arts Council building. The workman began to clean the building.

    Clemson’s priorities are athletics, not academics

    Clemson University’s Will To Lead capital campaign will allocate $200 million to 400 scholarship athletes ($500,000 per athlete) and $400 million to 16,000 non-athletes ($25,000 per student), a 20 to 1 ratio. 

    Incredibly, Clemson has spent $120 million during the past 10 years on athletic facilities or $1 million per month.

  • Ardrey deserves district award

    Bill Ardrey’s work and dedication have been deservedly rewarded. Ardrey, commissioner for the Lancaster Soil and Water Conservation District, was honored earlier this year as the S.C. Association of Conservation District’s 2010 Outstanding Commissioner of the Year.

    Conservation districts are asked annually to nominate a commissioner for supporting the local-state federation conservation partnership in their county and for promoting conservation within the county.

  • Wright will finally get his name on monument

    Veterans Remembered is the fifth in a series written in support of the Veterans Monument being built for the veterans of Lancaster County in hopes it will stimulate readers to remember those veterans who touched their lives and provide support of the Veterans Monument project.
    A salute to the news media for continued support of the Veterans Monument Project and for publishing Veterans Remembered. We continue to receive a steady response of name registrations and purchase of pavers.
