Ariail for Oct. 20, 2014

October 20, 2014 | | Ariail


Noted and passed - Oct. 20, 2014

• Thanks to I-20, two U.S. highways and several state highways, we have a lot of commercial vehicles passing through Kershaw County on a daily basis.

I talk a lot about preparing students for their future and not our past. The BMW tour reminded me why this is ...
