Today's Features

  • Spring has sprung and Pageland yards are alive again. The Pageland Garden Club is proud to award the April Yard of the Month to Mrs. Peggy Demby of 1002 Sewell Street. For those that know Demby, her yard represents her well.  One cliché comes to mind…”neat as a pin.” For years she has enjoyed working in her yard.  She credits her sons, Jack and Eddie, with assisting her with the yard maintenance.  

  • Organizers of this year’s eighth annual Native American Studies Week at the University of South Carolina-Lancaster took on the complex legacy of Lancaster County’s most famous son Thursday, March 28.
    Andrew Jackson, the seventh president of the United States, was born March 15, 1767, in the “Waxhaws of South Carolina,” a geographical area that is now part of the Lancaster County Panhandle.

  • Organizers of this year’s University of South Carolina Lancaster Native American Studies Week said the event, which ended March 29, was another success in the ongoing dialogue about issues facing Native Americans.
    All of this year’s events revolved around the theme of “Law and Justice for Native Americans.”

  • And He departed from our sight that we might return to our heart,
    and there find Him.
    For He departed, and behold, He is here.
    – St. Augustine

  • From release
    Mark and Jennifer Tucker of 1097 Outen Street are the recipients of the March Yard-of-the Month by the Pageland Garden Club. As you approach their yard, the banks are lined with Blue Pacific Juniper. The front lawn is bordered by live Oaks. Zelkova and Holly are accented with a brick serpentine wall, which borders the yard as you enter their residents.

    There will be a $20 registration fee and lunch will be provided. Registration forms can be picked up at Jefferson Town Hall and Pageland Community Center, as well as the elementary schools in Pageland or Jefferson.

  • We all know them – the Christmas crafters. Those crafty individuals who arrive at holiday parties and family get-togethers with cute, heartfelt homemade gifts and baked goods. The kind of gifts which make our hastily wrapped Hickory Farms fare look like we didn’t even try.

    For years, we’ve just had to grin and accept it. We’re never going to be crafty, and that’s that.

    Or at least that was how it was until 2010. Enter Pinterest.

  • The holiday season is a time to revisit traditional family recipes, but sometimes the same pumpkin pie, the same bread or the same hard-as-brick fruitcake can be a little boring.
    Spice up your Christmas or holiday party menu by trying out these three recipes.
    Who knows? They may become a new tradition.

  • In the modern world, it’s not very often you find a business which combines both Faith and good service.

    Since opening its doors on Sept. 1, Sandy’s Barber Shop & Salon: God’s Creation, 105 S. Pearl St., Pageland, has been enthusiastically serving the town of Pageland.

    Owned by Sandy Baker and William Kelty, the business currently employs two other stylists, Dianne Newman and Kelly Tickle, along with Baker, and has two open stations for expansion.

  • Pageland Garden Club press release
    The lawn of Boyd and Clara Hayes of 308 Evans Mill Road has been chosen as October’s Yard of the Month by the Pageland Garden Club. The couple has lived in the home for more than 50 years and their yard has received honors from the garden club two times before.

    “It’s a lot of work because we do all the mowing ourselves,” Clara said. “In the winter months we take a break, but we do a lot of watering in the summer because it requires it.”
