The obvious solution here is for the two states to take money from their “rainy day” funds, build an extension on the Lake Wylie Mini Mart so it straddles the state lines, buy out the owner and start the nation’s first charter school with a core curriculum offering three majors: beer sales, fireworks and the economics of fossil fuel sales.
The school board members must be drawn from “Duck Dynasty” and allowed to pack heat openly to settle any disputes. Teachers would be retired volunteers, since good teachers don’t need salaries, and the principal should be a retired Russian general. That should settle it. Good grief!
