      Patriots Point lets SC residents pay what they can


      MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina residents who want to



      see the USS



      Yorktown are getting a special break on the admission



      price.


      This weekend, the Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum on



      Charleston Harbor



      in Mount Pleasant is letting South Carolina



      residents pay what they can afford for



      admission to the attraction



      that features the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown.


      Parking is normally $5 a vehicle and admission is $18 per



      person. South Carolina



      residents must bring proof of residence to



      take advantage of the promotion that



      continues through Sunday.


      As always, military personnel in uniform and children younger



      than 6 are admitted



      free.
