    The 2011-12 Lancaster County high school girls basketball season was about impressive hoops comebacks.
    Andrew Jackson High School junior Bre Wright rebounded from  ACL knee surgery to lead the Lady Volunteers to a Class AA playoff berth.
    Wright’s play was so solid that she led the county in scoring and rebounding.
    She averaged 15.3 points and 15.2 rebounds a game for the Lady Vols after joining the team just after the Christmas break.

  • A special day in many ways

    It’s April 8, which this year, is Easter. April 8, without being Easter, is still a special date for me.
    In baseball lore, you might recall that’s the date Hank Aaron hit his historic home run in Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium to pass Babe Ruth.
    A few seasons before the old Braves’ stadium closed, our church, First Presbyterian, took a bus trip to see the Braves play the Phillies.
    Do you remember the old outfield sign in left center field where Aaron’s 715th home run sailed out of the park and into history?
