    – “Kodachrome” by Paul Simon

    All the people could see the writing on the wall at King Nebuchadnezzar’s party, but only Daniel could tell what it meant.

  • Sports Talk: Glad we had Henry as a city father

    In just over a month, the City of Lancaster will have new leadership.

    That’s ahead, but today – Father’s Day, that annual mid-June Sunday, we tip our hat to dad, I’m thinking about a man, who was, among many, a fine father for our town, “The Red Rose City.”

    Back earlier this spring, we lost a couple of “good men,” who were solid leaders for Lancaster, within the same week – John Howard and Henry Johnson.

    I knew both of them well, but I go back a l-o-n-g way with Henry.

    Beverly Buscemi didn’t publicly – and apparently neither privately to key people – reveal specifics about her new job with her resignation at the end of last year as the longtime director of the S.C. Department of Disabilities and Special Needs.
    “At this time, I feel it is important to move onto other opportunities outside of South Carolina while continuing to follow my passion of supporting individuals with disabilities,” Buscemi wrote in a letter to staff when her resignation was announced in October.
