  • Gulledge wins big in Knight Memorial

    Jason Gulledge separated himself from the field Saturday night to win the Super Stock Division feature at Lancaster Speedway during the Huey Knight Memorial.

    When the green flag dropped Gulledge, who started on the second row, veered past Dennis Knight, Andy Blackwood and Brandy Baker coming off the second turn to grab the lead.

    Meanwhile, Knight, Blackwood and Baker dueled for second place as the laps wound down, with Gulledge pulling away by five car lengths. 

    Baker got by Blackwood and then by Knight, setting his sights on Gulledge.

  • Column: U.S. Supreme Court should rule by judgment, not will

    On this Independence Day, I think of our Founding Fathers, who created a movement based on ideas that were argued by men for many weeks on their pros and cons. These ideas created the most free and prosperous nation in the history of the world, and this prosperity helped more people than any other nation. Our Founding Fathers were in fact God-fearing descendants of the Puritans, Presbyterians and a Catholic. They believed that government should serve the people, so they gave us a republic.

    Pelham, now a member of the AA Frisco [Texas] Roughriders, has been selected to play in the 2018 Sirius XM All-Star Futures Game at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., on Sunday.

  • Column: Defense budget contains key provisions to up readiness

    As a South Carolinian, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and someone with loved ones who served in the military, I believe that supporting our nation’s troops should be our highest priority.
    I was proud to advocate for and support the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal 2019. The NDAA funds critical military readiness initiatives and construction projects in South Carolina and across the country.

  • Lancaster teacher to show students how we get food

  • Editor's Column: Inconsiderate few turn roads into eyesores

    There’s a new phone app that I hope you’ll download after you read this column. It’ll put us a tiny step closer to tidying up our messy roadsides.

    I was running an errand the other day and stopped at the S.C. 9 Bypass traffic light with McDonald’s on my left and CVS across the highway on the right. There were probably 30 vehicles within sight.

  • Column: Stop talking about the wall, start helping those who hurt

    I am writing in response to the July 29 guest column by Rudy Schmidt headlined “Common Sense: Before all else on immigration, stop the influx.”

    I disagree, because there is a solution to all problems. We, as a people, have to come together and remember that the only true Americans in the United States are the Native Americans.

    The problem is President Trump’s “wall.” He promised during the campaign that Mexico would pay to build this wall. Now after he is in office, it is us (the people).

  • White hot from the white tees

    Lancaster golfer Scott Roberts, the five-time Lancaster Golf Club champion, continues his links assault on the LGC records.
    Two weeks ago, Roberts shot a sizzling 56 (29-27) from the silver tees at the Lancaster Golf Club for a new mark. LGC pro Phil Small said Roberts’ 56 was the first time in his memory a golfer had broken 60 in a round.
    Then on Tuesday, the former Buford High School golf standout, a 1989 BHS graduate and Lancaster High School golf coach, notched another milestone, shooting a 60 from the white tees, playing 6,100 yards over 18 holes.
