    You’ve heard the old saying “a picture is worth a thousand words.” When it comes to preserving and enjoying history, that proverb is especially true. Fortunately, some of our very own Lancaster artists are doing their part to keep Lancaster’s history alive through visual arts. You’ll have a chance to see their work and meet some of them in person at the Cultural Arts Center, 307 W. Gay St., Lancaster, from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 5.

    RICHBURG – For a town that was founded on catastrophe, Richburg is doing remarkably well these days.

    GREAT FALLS – For the first time in his life, Henry “Bubba” Stevenson Jr. can offer a handshake. But it’s not your everyday handshake – it’s bionic.

    Stevenson, 23, was fitted with a “1-limb ultra bionic arm” on Sept. 22.

    Stevenson was born without arms. On his right side, his arm stops shy of his elbow and on his left side, there is only a nub below his shoulder.

    The fourth annual National Missions Day will be at the Lancaster Fairgrounds from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 4.

    There is still time to register for free tent space and be a part of this large community outreach event.

    Founded by apostle Ollie Alexander, ambassador for international missions, the idea of the event is to not only reach out to the community, but foster and encourage a sense of unity between different churches, outreaches and ministries that participate.

    Carolyn Taylor describes herself as “just a wife, mother and grandmother,” but even she admits her life has certainly not been dull or boring.

    Her lifelong interest in drama and history has led her down an interesting career path that influenced countless students in her 25 years of teaching.

    Tucked away in the new subdivision College Place, John and Audrey Hadvab found just the right setting for their home seven years ago. As their home evolved so did their yard.

    Working with a landscape designer, they developed a plan filled with low maintenance shrubs and trees. Even after seven years of growth the shrubs, along with perennials they have added, through the years still create a beautiful look.

  • Today I am going to include four card exercises for men and women, because at some point in our training we all fall short of understanding how important it is. 

    Most reasons are the same, universal excuses we all use. 

    I hear you saying it now – “I don’t have the time” and the famous line – “It is so boring to walk on a tread mill. I hate it.”

  • When counting blessings, it’s easy to take for granted the five senses – taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing – if you’ve never been without one of them. Lancaster resident Tara Steele is counting having restored hearing in her left ear as a huge blessing, thanks to a surgery performed back in May.

  • A staple side dish at my summer cookouts is baked beans. I have a traditional recipe that my family loves, but lately I’ve been trying to switch things up a bit. I think these baked bean recipes may be just what I’m looking for.

    Every parent knows, it can be hard to please the taste buds of everyone at the table. But, it seems like Cindy Ferguson does just that with her Spicy Apple Baked Beans.

  •  Drivers on Craig Farm Road in Lancaster County may have gotten a bit distracted on Saturday, July 12, by the row of shiny Mercedes-Benz automobiles parked neatly in front of Kilburnie, the Inn at Craig Farm.

    The Haires built their home in 1970. Many of the original boxwoods and hollies kept neatly trimmed continue to thrive in the yard – a direct result of Judy’s green thumb.

    “Growing plants has always been easy for me,” Judy said. “Many times I have just stuck a small cutting from a plant in the ground and it really takes off.”

  • In another realm, I was a ball of fire, always full of energy.

    Why, I took on all kinds of projects and tasks of all sorts and sizes around our Charlotte Road Camelot.

    Now, I get up in the morning with the best intentions of getting our yard in better shape.

    No, I don’t mean that blue ribbon, Yard-of-the-Month frenzy.

    While I enjoy lookin’ at the pictures, once you win that distinction, you are under pressure and the lawn is under neighborhood microscope.

    Jimmy Wood knows what he loves about sailing.

    “The sound of the waves, the feel of the wind and the smile on my wife’s face.”

    And Wood – the acting commodore of Lake Wateree Sail Club – wants other people to experience those things and understand why the Lake Wateree Sail Club is a great place to share experiences.

    When I learned about the Southwest Florida Honor Flight, I quickly contacted Don Vecoli, founder and organizer.

    He and his staff organize the trips for World War II veterans and volunteers to visit the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C., two or three times per year.

    Barbecue.

    Perhaps nowhere in the country more than in South Carolina does the word evoke a sense of history as rich as the smell of meat in the smoker.

  • A few years ago, when I did some frequent work-related traveling between Springs’ Customer Service Center and their New York office, several of those “real city boys” used to chide me about one of my neighborly tendencies.

    For some strange, inexplicable reason, they perceived my inclination of nodding and speaking to people on the street as a “bad habit.”

    Folks in midtown New York City, they said, never make eye contact with total strangers.

    If you did, you were asking for trouble.
