Give a gift, get a gift at spring blood drive

The Red Cross has less than a three-day supply of most blood types, and blood products are being distributed to hospitals faster than donations are coming in.

HTC invites the public to join it for its spring blood drive, which will take place from 7 a.m. to noon May 16 in the parking lot at the U.S. 701 retail location in Conway.

Those who take part will receive a $5 gift card via email courtesy of the American Red Cross.

To schedule an appointment, contact Lisa Martin at, or call 843-369-8714.

May means deals for moms, military and more

Wireless Services

One thing we’re sure Mom loved on Mother’s Day was talking with her children … and HTC can help make that possible year round.

For a limited time, you can buy one smartphone and get another half off when signing up for a new line. Both phones must be purchased on the AT&T installment plan and be included on the unlimited plan.

For the first responders, active military and veterans, you can get a $200 activation credit the entire month of May. Simply sign up for a new line of service on AT&T Unlimited & More plans, and the deal is stackable with other offers.

May is certainly the month to stay in touch.

Safety first! Can you dig it?


Every state has its own 811 call center, and South Carolina is no exception.

At least a few days before any digging project, be sure to pick up the phone and call 811 whether you are doing the digging yourself or hiring a professional.

There are more than 20 million miles of underground utilities in the United States.

That figure equates to more than one football field’s length of buried utilities for every man, woman and child in the United States.

To know what’s below, always call 811 before digging!

Don’t drive distracted

May is motorcycle awareness month, and the timing couldn’t be more perfect with two of the state’s largest motorcycle rallies taking place along the Grand Strand.

While the riders themselves face important safety tasks at all times, drivers have just as much a responsibility.

It’s vital to pay attention to your surroundings constantly while operating a vehicle. 

Don’t drive distracted, and everyone will be able to enjoy the roads.
