Both the town of Mount Pleasant and its tourism mainstay at Patriots Point (home to aircraft carrier the USS Yorktown) are looking to push tourism up -- in the case of Patriots Point they want their attendance numbers to rise from 230,000 a year to 400,000 in just five years.
But all that positive thinking has just been rocked a little as word has just come that 11 full-time staffers at Patriots Point have been laid off, and the wages cut for part-time staff.
Oh, and more bad news on the unemployment front as South Carolina's latest unemployment numbers have just come out. Watch for the story here.
