Appellant seeks to appeal from the district c ourt's orders denying relief on his two petitions filed under 28 U.S.C.A. § 2254 (West 1994 & Supp. 1997).

Accordingly, we deny a certificate of appealability and dismiss the appeals on the reasoning of the district court. Younce v. South Carolina , Nos. CA-96- 3542-2-18AJ; CA-96-3306-2-18AJ (D.S.C.
