If President Donald Trump's budget is signed into law, South Carolina's public schools would lose $246 million in federal grant money. The budget would cut after-school programs (used by more than 14,000 S.C. schoolkids) and would end a partnership between the University of South Carolina and the Department of Education.

A woman took a scenic drive outside of Greenville and stopped at a gas station, where she let someone in front of her in line and bought a lottery ticket, and is now $878 million richer for it. After spending the last six months with a legal team researching her options, she will remain anonymous. She will use some of the money to support charities "close to [her] heart," including the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Columbia, the Red Cross Alabama Region's tornado relief fund, Simsonville's Art Center, the One S.C. Fund for Hurricane Florence relief, and In the Middle, a breast cancer charity. Source: Washington Post
