    CHESTER – Last year, the Indian Land Warriors had a lead against the Chester Cyclones only to lose by one point in the final seconds.

  • Column: Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser has no reason to lie about him

    I am writing in response to Dianne Evans’ Friday column headlined “Ugly badgering and humiliation of Kavanaugh a crude travesty.”
    Will we ever really know the truth of what happened 36 years ago, or even 36 minutes ago? Judge Brett Kavanaugh keeps skirting around the questions. He answers with a question.

  • Bruins claw Cavaliers in region opener

    The Lancaster Bruins took time in getting rolling, but once they did, it was a blue and gold steamroll.
    Lancaster, coming off a bye week after a 41-20 road loss to Chester, was sluggish out of the gate, but steadily came on to post the 38-0 win over Richland Northeast to open Region IV-AAAA football play Friday night at Memorial Stadium.
    “We had a slow start, but we created a spark and it got us going,” LHS coach Bobby Collins.
    The spark came late in the first period when RNE, on the move, drove inside the LHS 20, but stalled.
