In tuesdays edition of the Ai Ken Standard an article about la Dolce moving had an error. The restaurant is currently located at 123 Laurens Street . The Aiken Standard regrets the error. Correction Liberal invasion there has apparently been an invasion of Liberal tax and spend artists in Aiken government reps. I find it very sneaky How they continually say the hospitality tax is a tax on prepared food. That makes most people think its Only on sit and eat restaurants but if what i understand is Correct its also on All fast food out lets. Thatus where it will hit the average poor and Middle income person the hardest. I would bet that More Money will come from local Resi dents than out of town Visi tors even though they want us to believe otherwise. Trailer tags not everyone is a local who never leaves the state. If you have a boat trailer and travel across state lines youll be stopped and charged accordingly. A simple fee for tagged trailers would be in every ones Best interest. No outsiders ism unable to get to any of the meetings to give input on the superintendent the school Board is ready to hire. We need to use someone local who knows our schools and our situation. Dont bring someone from the outside in. In our prayers a 4-year-old boy lost his life on a school bus. We need to Pray for the family that better Days will come. It will be hard but better Days will come. Let god in your heart and he will show you the Way.
