  • Locals enjoying solid starts to college season

    A number of football players with Chester County ties are now making their mark at the college level.

    Lewisville's Antwan Robinson has been a bright spot for the 0-2 North Greenville Crusaders. Robinson has collected five tackles in two games as a defensive back and has an interception, which he returned 22 yards.

    2006 Lewisville grad Davion Wright is listed as the starting right tackle for Hampton University's football team.

  • Chester passes fire contract

    The City of Chester officially renewed its contract with the fire district on Monday.

    The contract was actually presented for passage at last month’s meeting, but was held up by some new language in the contract. A stipulation that any budgeted money that goes unspent be put in an account in Columbia caused some confusion.

  • United Way gets big kickoff

    The United Way of Chester County got a big kickoff to its 2009 campaign at the Rotary Club of Chester County on Tuesday.

    Almost half of its goal of $225,000 was presented or pledged to the United Way at the meeting.

    The Rotary Club of Chester hosted the Chester County United Way 2009 campaign kick-off at its meeting, Tuesday, Sept. 9. Members of the United Way board, representatives from pacesetter industries and campaign workers were honored with a luncheon sponsored by Rotarians.

  • Versatile Lions set to host AAAA Falcons

    Lewisville High's mascot remains the Lions, but it could just as easily be the chameleons.

    The team had a completely different look offensively in the pre-season than it did in a Week 0 contest against Carolina Pride. That look bore almost no resemblance to what the team showed last week against Ben Lippen.

    So there's no telling what Nation Ford will see when it comes to Lewisville tonight.

  • Devils and Cycs ready to renew rivalry

    After a two-year absence from one another's schedule's, Chester and Great Falls will renew their football rivalry tonight.

    Both Cyclones coach Maurice Flowers and Great Falls coach Kenneth Schofield have found some areas of concern looking at the opposition.

    "Great Falls is a good ball club," said Flowers. "They have good skill guys, a good quarterback, they're big up front. They will present us with a good challenge."

  • Seven years later

    Has it really been seven years? Seven years since two jets plowed into the Twin Towers of New York’s World Trade Center? Seven years since a jet collided with the Pentagon? Seven years since a fourth jet, its passengers standing up against terrorists, crashed into a Pennsylvania field?

    There was a time when you heard about little else, and it made that day seem like yesterday, everyday. But sometimes, it seems like it was in another lifetime.

    Some people still don’t know how to cope with the horrendous losses of that day.

  • Low Brass in Great Falls: Board OKs money to buy horns

    The Great Falls High School band is going to be a little low, soon.

    Low brass, that is.

    The Chester County school district recently approved $15,000 to be used to buy new instruments for the band.

    A.J. Pace, first year band director for the high school, couldn’t be happier.

    “We desperately needed new instruments,” he said.

    Not that the band doesn’t already have some new instruments.

  • Rock Hill man arrested in January shooting

    Rock Hill man has been arrested in connection with a pair of alleged shootings in January.

    Malcolm Belk allegedly fired shots into a house in Fort Lawn and was present during another shooting.

  • Chester reopens admin search

    by Travis Jenkins


    At a point in time in which City of Chester officials hoped to be naming a new administrator they instead made a move on Monday to broaden their search.

    Chester City Council unanimously approved a motion Monday to re-advertise the administrator position as being open. Additionally, it was decided that one of the job requirements will be altered. Unlike the last posting, it will not be required that applicants agree to live in the city limits, they will only have to live in the county.

  • FLC has no objections to Mill No. 2 rezoning

    The Great Falls Planning Commission will consider Thursday night a request to rezone two old mills to prevent them from being used for industry.

    The current owner of one piece of property, an old mill embroiled in controversy, has no objection to the rezoning. The attempted sale of that property is what is causing the controversy.

    The town submitted two zoning changes to the Town of Great Falls Planning Commission.
