One question that might arise in the minds of former soldiers in the Charlotte, North Carolina, area is whether they can get both veterans' disability benefits through the Department of Veterans' Affairs and get Social Security disability payments through the Social Security Administration. These heroes, many of whom have been wounded while serving their country, may also have some questions about the relationship between these two programs.
Citing the fact that the Social Security Disability program has grown exponentially over the last few decades, a few federal lawmakers are proposing a law that would use both incentives and time limits to get some Charlotte, North Carolina, residents who are disabled to look for a job and try to get off the program's payroll.

A previous post on this blog discussed why it is so important for drivers in the Charlotte area to keep their complete focus on the road when driving. Anything that causes distracted driving, including texting and driving, eating and driving or even talking to a passenger and driving, can result in a serious or even deadly accident.
For many, St. Patrick's Day is a time for celebration, regardless of whether an individual has Irish ancestry or is just Irish for the day.

The world is not a simple place and to navigate the many tasks that a North Carolina resident must accomplish on any given day generally requires them to multitask in order to have a chance at staying on top of their responsibilities. However, there is one time during the day that a person should put everything else to the side and focus on a single task: while driving an automobile.
