Jim and I took our dog Maggi to the Pitt Bridge Park, saw three fisherman and talked to one of them at great length. Nikita, who has been in the Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, area for about 5 years, is from Rudnyy, Kazakhstan. He said he came here to be with some of his friends and added that he was working now. He didn't elaborate but added that he would eventually like to go to college in the area, if he can earn enough money. Jim talked to him about the possibility of seeking financial aid and researching scholarships. Hope that he follows that path.
