  • Celebrating success, honoring leadership

    Dozens of area youth and their families always look forward to Saturdays in Lancaster. 

    That’s when those children can take to the field and compete – something many of them had not been able to do before. 

    With the swing of a bat, dribble of a basketball or the thrust of a pompom, those children are able to experience the thrills and joys of performing in front of a crowd.  

    They participate as part of a local sports league for special-needs children called the Dream Team. 

  • Final reading on IL fire district Tuesday

    After months of discussion and planning, Lancaster County Council will hear public comments and final reading on a proposed Indian Land Fire Protection District when it meets Tuesday night. 

    Council has already unanimously approved two readings of the ordinance, which if approved would establish funding for an Indian Land fire protection district through rates and charges, and would also repeal the special tax districts in Sun City Carolina Lakes, Edenmoor and Belair. 

  • Channel your child’s inner artist

     Do you have a rising Renoir creating masterpieces at home? Potential Picasso? Mini Matisse? Budding young artists can participate in the Del Webb Library at Indian Land’s “Art Studio at the Library,” a month-long event in March allowing children the chance to create their own artwork.

  • Many accomplishments at Sheriff’s Office in 2 years

    When I was elected sheriff two years ago, I set out to accomplish an ambitious set of goals.
    Now that I’ve reached the mid-point of my first term, I think it is only appropriate to issue an update on the progress we have made to date. Based on the scope and implementation requirements, these goals were categorized as either short or long term, but the basis for all of them was accountability, improved service and professionalism.

  • $75 tax for fire district is unjust

    I would like to thank those who took the trouble to vote against the Indian Land Fire District in the advisory referendum on Jan. 18, 2011.
    You stood up for the principle that private, voluntary means should be the first option for supporting volunteer fire departments, as is done successfully all over the country.

  • Sarah Kirkland fosters a special brand of love

    Having a police cruiser pull into the driveway at 3 a.m. and hearing the car door slam shut is unexpected, to say the least.

    But not for 78-year-old Sarah Kirkland. She’s grown used to it.

    As soon as “Ms. Sarah” heard the officer knock on the door of her Cedar Run Road home in the Pleasant Hill community, the kitchen lights were on and the bath water was running.

    That’s because there was a special love in her house that could meet a special need.

  • Make sure you have the right wrench

    It’s never wise to start a project without having the right tools.

    I had accumulated enough cardboard, 2-by-4s, 10-penny nails and two metal rods for axles. 

    I removed the four wheels from my old Radio Flyer wagon and spread out my new “race car” parts on the dirt floor of the old plunder house. 

    In my estimation, it would only be a matter of getting this marvel up and running.

    Suddenly, Mr. Edison’s light bulb gleamed real bright above my head.

  • Tough win gives AJ sweep

    KERSHAW – Host Andrew Jackson prevailed in a Region IV-AA basketball sweep of county rival Buford, but the varsity broom job wasn’t achieved in similar fashion.

  • Vikings prevail twice in wins over LHS





    One of the Lancaster Bruins’ longest basketball road trips of the season was just that – a long night.
