April is Fair Housing Month! Each year, HUD proclaims April as Fair Housing Month to commemorate the anniversary of the passage of the Fair Housing Act in 1968 which guarantees “the right of every person to live where they choose, regardless of their race, color, national origin, sex, religion, familial status, or disability.” The theme for HUD’s Fair Housing Month commemoration this year is “Shared Opportunity in Every Community.”
In celebration of Fair Housing Month 2016, local elementary school students from Manning, South Carolina created some fantastic artwork.

Daniel Lyles, owner of Daniel's Lawn Care and winner of Startup Weekend Sumter, was featured in The Item on Sunday, April 17th. Lyles competed in Startup Weekend with the Golden Edge, an edger blade with a carbide-tip and zinc coating. The blade can last at least 50 times longer than traditional blades and is coated to prevent corrosion.
