Joan Talley traveled from Columbia to Bennettsville on Wednesday morning to bring a car full of books for the students of Marlboro County School District.

Talley explained that purchasing books for children is one of her passions and she loves donating them to those in need.

BENNETTSVILLE, S.C. -- Joan Talley traveled from Columbia to Bennettsville Wednesday morning to bring a car full of books for the students of Marlboro County School District.

The students attending Bennettsville Primary School Summer Program were so excited to not only see all of the books that Talley brought but to get to choose books to take home as well. I heard such things as, "I can't wait to get home and read this to my baby sister," "Can I keep this book? It is exactly what I want," "Can I have more than one?" and the questions went on and on. Needless to say the students were very excited to have the opportunity to receive new books that they could take home and call their own.

We would like to thank Talley for her generous contribution to our district and let her know that we will continue to distribute books throughout the district to our students through the summer programs. A partnerships like this which personally touches so many of our students is greatly needed and appreciated by the district.

Former President Donald Trump saying the 2020 presidential election was fixed is called "The Big Lie" by his detractors. If that's The Big Lie, what would President Joe Biden saying he wanted to unite the country be called, "The Biggest Lie"? I've never seen a president try harder to divide the country.

In recent months, Florence has stressed how important it is that all citizens get vaccinated against COVID-19. Visit the websites of local pharmacies and hospitals and you will see scrolling banners and bold-faced links to information on how to get tested and where to get vaccinated.

I am as skeptical as the next guy about big tech’s abuses on conservative voices. However, a number of new Democrat-driven bills have been proposed by Congress seeking to cripple our domestic technology industry – disguised as anti-trust legislation. These are bills that stand in opposition to the tech industry that we have built right here in America and invite countries like China to take the driver’s seat in leading global tech innovation.
