Re: “Children's Museum of the Lowcountry changes admission policy to encourage lower income families to visit

To localhutch, not everyone pays for those hairdos. Some people have friends who do their hair for free in their kitchen, I just wear a wig, don't have cable - stream free shows on RabbitTV I got at Dollar Tree, and have a phone that won't even come on right now because of the bad shape it's in. Recently I was one of those people whose been riding CARTA for a few months, wind, rain or shine until thanks to Ron Full at Hoover in Summerville, was able to get a 2015 Jeep Patriot that fit into our budget. So, yes, I do have a car now. Took mother to cancer center for infusion early yesterday morning, then for groceries; then 11 year old niece I'm raising alone to combined birthday party for 3 little league football players at bowling alley - buying 3 $5 target gift cards as gifts which was an inexpensive trade off for the once in a blue moon pleasure of her bowling with friends; visited Toys for Tots to pick up a few gifts; back to pick up niece taking her to Burlingtons for a blouse to wear at the Christmas Festival; then took her to sing at the nursing home's Christmas Festival; then took her other grandmother for groceries; helped another person with an emergency; went to laundry because washer broke mid-cycle with a load of clothes; son called for ride home from work because car he borrowed had to be turned over for sister to do errands for their grandmother. I actively participate in school and her activities and when the museum has programs we can fit into our budget we do attend. So don't assume everyone is sacrificing their children's education for an expensive hairdo, cable or phone. We make sacrifices to do what's necessary for ourselves and others. I imagine others are going through the same as I and people like you that just ASSUME are just that.

p.s.: I agree with jred98, "All kids need the experience & education but resources to get there for low income families.... Isn't always practical for a low income family." A few short months ago it wouldn't have been practical for me.

Re: “Walter Scott revelation: NCPD has quota system

On Johns Island this pulling over BS is rampant. My daughter was at the traffic light waiting to make a left turn. The officer sitting across the street at the light had on his right signal light but wouldn't make the turn. After two light changes my daughter made her left since he wouldn't make his turn. As soon as she did she got pulled over for supposedly "failing to yield to the right-of-way. When it happened to me, I put on my right signal light, went to the next neighborhood, turned around and went where I was originally headed, passing the officer still sitting at the light.

Just last week around midnight I had just left the laundry and headed to my brother's house off of Bohicket Road. I put on the left signal light but had not approached the turn lane yet, there were no oncoming vehicles and nothing behind me, when my niece told me her dad was not at home. I then put on the right signal light and turned to go home. An officer pulled me over telling me "it looked like you were about to make a left turn, saw me, then changed your mind and put on your right signal and made a right turn. I said to the mindreader, that's exactly what I did. My niece said she'd just talked to her dad on the cell and he said he wasn't at home. He asked for my license (not registration or insurance info) which I gave him. Then he came back and told me he had to write me a warning to document the stop. He checked improper lane use on the public contact/warning ticket. I thought I was doing what the lane was for -- driving. I could understand if I had already approached the turning lane or had been in it in which case I would have gone on to the corner store and turned around. I can understand them doing their job but the BS stops need to be eradicated. By the way, I don't drive a clunker and always check my lights if for no other reason than I hate having my time wasted by the BS stops. Still I sometimes get the "you crossed the line" even though I knew I didn't. But it's my word against theirs.
