We are losing a friend...

We are losing a friend today. Randy Burns reporter for the Sumter Daily Item is retiring today. Randy frequently filed his stories from the Library to save him time and relieve him from having to drive home.

We jokingly designated the conference room as "The Item Satellite Office."

Lee County has had it's share of discouraging news lately, but Randy always accentuated the positives about Lee County. he is a special friend to Lee County Library - his grandchildren and family always came to our programs and Randy always gave us great press coverage.

We will miss Randy's smiling face but we know he will be no stanger to us. We hope him great happiness in his retirement.
