If you want to get serious with gun control, why don’t they give the death penalty to anyone convicted of committing a crime with a handgun or any other type of loaded weapon?
While sitting in the car, is it legal to toss cigarettes on the pavement?
In the TalkBack
We never mention God, but you always see Obama in the TalkBack.
I don’t have a problem with the bridge, but the chain-link fence looks cheesy. It’s a shame they couldn’t have used something more ornamental.

What kind of manager would let his business be robbed by a man with a knife and not have a gun to protect it?
Increase gas tax
I would like to see Aiken County residents get the county delegation to promote an increase in our gas tax. The state hasn’t raised the gas tax in 25 years. Inflation has diminished that to 8 cents per gallon. We have a lot of road needs, and most of the road damage is from out-of-state travelers.

I’m complaining about the parking lot at the new finance building. It’s very unfriendly. It’s always full, but when I went in to pay my taxes, I had to ride around for 10 minutes to find a space. However, the lobby was empty.
Redbox is machine where you can go to rent a movie, and it is usually placed on the outside of a business.
Does anyone know where I can get a basset hound?
