Note To Readers Regarding 3-12 Duncan Banner
You may have noticed that there were no sports pages in the March 12, 2014, edition of The Duncan Banner. I apologize to you for that.
There were multiple instances of the power going out at The Duncan Banner office Tuesday night as the pages were put together. This prevented us from finalizing pages 5, 6 and 7, which are normally Sports pages in the Wednesday edition. Power was not fully restored until about 1:30 a.m., at which point the decision was made to go forward with pages that had been sent to press rather than not have a newspaper at all

Chancey Allen Luna, 16, and Michael Dewayne Jones, 18 face first-degree murder charges in the Aug. 16, 2013, death of Lane, who shot while jogging in the afternoon at Country Club Road near Twilight Beach.
