By HALEY HUGHES  Staff writer  Aiken County roads are traveled every day by veiiicles displaying out-of-state tags.  4 Tl^oaf^'» own«r could-simply«fee— -passing through. However, if they have moved here from another s^te or have established other specific connections here and have not transferred their vehicle registration within 45 days, they're breaking the law.  The car's owner is in violation of state law if he or she has estab- . lished a residence or business here, is employed here, enrolls their children in Aiken County schools or obtains a S.C»driver's license yet has not completed the registration process and paid the applicable vehicle property taxes.  "It is the out-of-state people that give us the problem," said Aiken County Auditor Cyrus Spradley.

President Barack Obama and the most powerfU Republican in Congress split their differences to stave oif a federal shutdown that neither combatant was willing to risL  Their compromise is the result of a battle pitting the enduring power of the presidential veto and the White House soapbox -despite a "shellacking" in the last election - against a strong-willed GOP House speaker vaulted into oflBce by a voter revolt against Washington's free-spending ways.  Please see BUDGET, page 5A  National program benefìts inmates, horses  By BEN BAUGH  Staff writer  The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation has helped thousands of retired racehorses nationwide and has made a positive influence on the lives of the horses and those individuals  taking  care of them. South Carolina has partnered with the national agency to provide a safe haven for these  horses.  "The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation is the last hope for many horses, a great number of which are at the end of their lives," said Tom Ludt, chairman of the TRF. 'TRF has provided compassionate care to the horses for more than 25 years and proudly serves more than 1,100 horses at q)proximately 30 farms around the natioa"  TTie Second Chances program at Wateree River Correctional Institution in Rembert is included in that num  ber. At Wateree, the inmates tend to the care and well-being of the horses stabled at Seabiscuit Stable.  The benefits of the Second Chances program and vocational school are symbiotic as the inmates help rehabilitate the horses and the retired racehorses play a role in helping the inmates in their recovery.  According to John Rainey, the national TRF treasurer, the recidivism rate for those inmates going through the program is markedly less (about 12 percent) than those who don't take part  (70 percent).  The program has received no money from the state since 2008 and relies on private donations. It has met the challenges despite a difficult economy.  "We're in great shape," said R^ey, who has played a critical role in the South Carolina Committee of the TRC (SCTRF), not only through his efforts but also by helping to support the Second Chances program financially and by adopting horses some which now  Please see INMATES, page 16A  . s- ¿f,  I '  COMING MONDAY  Get an update on what's going on on Powderhouse Road.
