  • I am writing in response to the letter to the editor written by Tierra Stewart. She wrote about the guest editorial written by the New Horizon Community Church pastor, Steve Stewart. It is obvious she does not know him. I am writing to her and the others who may not know him.

  • 25 years of Thanksgiving fellowship

    In 1983, members of the faith community in Liberty Hill decided they would hold an annual get together to celebrate Thanksgiving.  That was the beginning of a multi-cultural, multi-race, non-denominational event that culminating in hundreds of folks – African American, Caucasian and Native American – gathering at the Liberty Hill Community Center recently for the silver anniversary event.

  • Bruins' season was a banner campaign

    When Lancaster High School head football coach Bennie McMurray was hired as the Bruins’ head football coach in mid-February, 2006, he said his goal was to one day lead the LHS program to a state title. McMurray took over a program which was coming off a winless campaign, so he knew his chore was  going to be a daunting challenge.

You are probably all smiles because you think you got away with something that didn’t belong to you.

    For six years, ever since moving to Lancaster, Jan and Jerry of McIllwain Road have opened their hearts to the place they now call home by taking great pains to put up an elaborate display to celebrate the season and bring pleasure to those who drive by to view it.

    I am writing to congratulate a local business on its superb customer service. I purchased a vehicle from Lancaster Dodge Chrysler Jeep Inc. two years ago. I am not fond of car shopping because of the many bad experiences I have had with car salesmen. I am proud to say the Lancaster County is blessed with a dealership that has changed my perspective.
