My Thanksgiving story

I am a 66-year-old senior lady who lives on Social Security and a small check from my past husband. I am thankful all the time, not just Thanksgiving.

A lack of transparency isn't limited to the federal government, as the S.C. Supreme Court has recently issued two troubling rulings which limit public access in the Palmetto State.
