River Port Should Be Shared Asset

This editorial calls on public officials in South Carolina and Georgia to work together to build a river port that will benefit them both.

"What needs to happen is for Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue and South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford to seriously twist some arms and get the right people talking about a regional port. It's not a new idea. Instead, it's an idea that's lacked enough push in Atlanta and Columbia to get things moving on the coast."
