    Business owners face problems when their location changes to a different state due to more precise drawing of border between South Carolina and North Carolina

    A special commission trying to hash out problems created when South Carolina and North Carolina resurveyed their state line is promising to do what it can to help landowners who suddenly find most or all of their property in a different state.
    The problems cropped up because surveyors back in the 1700s didn't have the precise instruments like GPS that allowed their modern counterparts to draw the state line within a centimeter or two. The new work shifts the state line in several areas a few hundred feet one way or the other.
    That has created a bureaucratic nightmare for some. Lewis Efird's company owns the land where a gas station was built in what he thought was South Carolina, but is now North Carolina. He said the move makes the station worthless because higher gas taxes will raise his pump prices 30 cents a gallon and the fireworks that boost his profits are illegal in North Carolina.

    Good grief.
