  • American Dream not reality for many in S.C.

    The American Dream is very simple. It is the foundation of our country and our state. It is not written into the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution; no Congress or legislature ever passed laws to make it official.
    But every American knows what it means and so do the immigrants from around the world who have risked it all to make it happen for themselves and their families here.

  • Experienced drivers can set the example for all drivers

    There are many ways to classify drivers. Some people classify drivers according to their mental state, such as drowsy or aggressive. Other people classify drivers according to their speed. I, however, believe that a combination of age and experience is the best way to classify drivers, whom I think fall into three categories – older, beginning and experienced.
    Although there are exceptions to my belief, classifying drivers this way gives a better understanding of why people drive the way they do.
