  • Sports Talk: Recalling the bike...

    No matter the occasion or season, when I’m at the Rice Athletic Complex at Lancaster High School, especially out front on those old walkways in front of the building, my mind drifts back to that September day in the early 1960s.
    As I step across the familiar walkways, I can close my eyes and reflect back some 55-plus years.
    I can hear my late father’s voice, “Robert, keep your balance, balance your weight, stay up, stay straight” as he followed close behind me.

  • Second-annual Phillip Knight...

    The second-annual Phillip Knight Memorial race will be at Lancaster Motor Speedway on Saturday.
