  • Mathis family thanks loving community

    I would like to thank the community of Lancaster for wrapping your loving arms around my family during the loss of my father, C.B. Mathis.

    Wednesday morning felt like any other day. I went to work, my mom went to the gym and my dad prepared himself for another busy day in real estate. Never in a million years did I think, Wednesday, May 25, my dad, at age 66, would take his last breath.

  • Have a fun, but safe summer

    Have a fun, but safe summer 

    It’s easy to let your safety guard down right now. After all, it is summer. School’s out. The beach, rivers and pools beckon. The longer days allow more time for outdoor activities – like boating, riding motorcycles and pursuing great adventures on all-terrain vehicles.

  • Congrats, good luck to 2011 grads

    Take a good look at this week’s Graduation 2011 special section. It’s full of the graduates from all four county high schools, as well as Carolina Christian Academy.
    In each school’s section, you’ll read about their top scholars, who will address their classmates as valedictorian and salutatorian at graduation ceremonies – today for the four county schools and June 3 for Carolina Christian.

  • Column: Stegall’s sense of duty lives on

    They left the comfort of their surroundings and went to strange places where they were called upon to do things unnatural to civilized humanity. Some are buried in foreign lands. Some are buried at sea. The status of some is unknown. There is a story for each of the many thousands who went away to war. I offer this one.
    In 1966, a young man named Lindell Ray “Butch” Stegall was relentless in requests to his parents that they sign a waiver so he might enlist in the U.S. Marine Corps. He was only 17.

  • Letter: Robinson,Benson deserve tribute

    Your praise of Buford’s Corbett Carnes was nice. But your front-page story about Isaac Robinson’s graduation after much struggles deserves another tribute.
    I praise his mother, Debbie Benson, for being the driving force in dedicating her efforts toward this diploma. She deserves to be recognized as the motivation and lift holding her son’s education together.

  • Letter: A thank-you to Hasty for her work

    In response to Caroline Hasty’s letter to the editor about Lancaster’s first Easter egg hunt, we would like to thank Caroline Hasty for her hard work and dedication to Lancaster County.   
    Caroline welcomed the Lancaster High School Civinettes with open arms when we  
    contacted her about an idea for a community-wide Easter egg hunt. She patiently listened to each idea offered by my girls and allowed them to put their plans into action.
