YORK – Lewisville held off Buford, 72-62 to capture seventh place in the Cougar Holiday Classic at York Comprehensive High School on Friday afternoon.

Lewisville held a 16-13 lead at the end of the first quarter, and the Lions had a 10-3 surge to build their lead.
Lewisville forged a 28-16 lead midway the second period and owned a 36-25 lead at the half.
A domestic disturbance near two Lancaster schools Tuesday morning resulted in brief campus lockdowns after a suspect fled toward school grounds carrying a gun.
Dillon Dean Dix, 22, was arrested between Brooklyn Springs Elementary and South Middle School around 9 a.m. following a nearly six-hour dispute with an ex-girlfriend, according to a Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office report.
The sheriff’s office notified both schools after Dix ran out of a home on Fleetwood Drive and headed toward the schools.
New Year’s Day is traditionally a time of change, but several Indian Land homeowners are facing an immense change this year – as of 12:01 a.m. Jan.1 some or all of their property moved to North Carolina.
The changes, which affect four houses in the Bridgehampton neighborhood, are the result of a 20-year effort to reestablish the 334-mile South Carolina/North Carolina border.
Dr. Richard Townsend remembers arriving in Lancaster in 1986.
It was the end of June. His new OB/GYN office had no furniture and no air conditioning. He sat on the floor and ate a sandwich before starting a night shift at Springs Memorial Hospital.
Townsend’s wife and family were still in Pennsylvania. Their Lancaster home was under construction, so he slept at the hospital for the first month.
Personnel changes, new programs and technology, and serious consideration of a new jail are a few of the things Lancaster County Sheriff Barry Faile has on his agenda for 2017.
Faile, who won reelection to a third term in November, said he ended 2016 with some personnel changes in the investigations unit to replace Capt. Craig Bailey, who retired after 25 years in law enforcement.
Flip Hutfles doesn’t mind being called cheap.
“If you can save $12,000 here and $6,000 there, it adds up,” said the Lancaster city administrator. “I take being cheap as a compliment.”
Keeping a close eye on the city expenditures is more important that ever in light of what the city is facing over the next two years.
Hutfles sat down Wednesday to discuss the multiple challenges that must be dealt with in 2017.
In order to assess recent statements and representations by Voters for a Town of Indian Land, several of us residents have asked TOIL leaders for a detailed, line-by-line budget for a town of Indian Land.
This basic information has been requested repeatedly, but never has been forthcoming. It has been requested via multiple sources: e.g., in face-to-face meetings, e-mail, through the Indian Land Action Council and through social media. I have the e-mail chain to verify these requests.
Carlisle Roddey, who served as the elected Chester County supervisor for three decades and spent 47 seasons as the radio voice of Chester High School football, died Monday after a long illness. He was 79.

Last weekend’s snowstorm moved mostly north of Lancaster County, leaving us with a dusting of snow and a bit of ice, followed by bitter cold.
Parts of the Upstate and most of North Carolina got heavy snow, but Lancaster got only flurries that began around 9:30 a.m. Saturday and continued until about 11 a.m. The clouds then cleared, and the sun was shining through ice on the trees by mid-afternoon.
Snow and freezing rain caused just 34 customers in the county to lose power Saturday, said Rick Jiran, Duke Energy’s vice president for community relations.
