    Keith Wilson is the only high school teacher in the county who shows his students the finer points for breaking into someone’s house.

    Wilson readily admits that forcible entry is a bad thing in most law enforcement circles.

    But James Rowell, Adam Medlin and Preston Davis have no intention of using those skills for a life of crime or an unwanted midnight encounter with Davis’ dad, Lancaster Police Dept. Lt. Duane Davis.

  • As news disseminators, we newspapers still do deliver

    As a teenager in Pennsylvania, I delivered The Morning Call and The Evening Chronicle to customers in a suburb of Allentown. On rainy days, I’d try to make sure the paper stayed dry inside the screen door. Now, I get The State and the New York Times delivered to my driveway in plastic bags, though the Times delivery is erratic. I can, of course, also read the Times on my iPhone, iPad and desktop computer.
    As disseminators of news, we still deliver. True, some choose to call us “content providers,” as though news were an anachronistic four-letter word.

  • Change up chili with smoky, zesty chipotles

    Hail to the chipotle chile pepper! Chipotles are smoked jalapenos and are commonly found in grocery stores, either as a powder in the spice aisle or in cans with aromatic adobo sauce in the ethnic foods aisle.

    Home cook Sandi Sheppard adds flavor and flair to her pork chili recipe with these tantalizing chile peppers, along with fresh jalapenos and canned chipotle-spiked white corn. Fresh cilantro sprinkled on top cools it down.

  • 'Food deserts' a growing concern for S.C. residents

    WEST COLUMBIA — Hundreds of thousands of people across South Carolina live in communities where access to supermarkets or large grocery stores is beyond reach. In agricultural terms, such areas are called “food deserts” — communities where healthy, affordable food is difficult to obtain.

    “For a growing population, healthy foods are much harder to come by in the modern world,” Clemson University professor Dave Lamie said. “For many, they sadly are beyond reach.”
