Laying the foundation

Workers pour the concrete foundation for what will be Bennettsville’s Taco Bell restaurant Wednesday morning.  The workers are employees of Frontier Building Company of Miami, Fl, who are contracted to construct the building.  It is on Highway 15-401 Bypass at the site of the old Burger King, which was demolished a few weeks ago.  The Taco Bell is expected to be completed by late March or early April.

Harmon remembered for a lifetime of community service

“Larger than life” is one way that Ken Harmon is remembered by the many friends he left behind in the community he called home for more than 50 years.
He was tall in stature, with a great, booming voice, and the size of his personality was rivaled only by the size of his heart, according to those who knew him best. 
Harmon, 82, died Wednesday, January 24, at his home in Bennettsville. He was laid to rest Saturday, January 27, in the cemetery of his beloved First United Methodist Church.
