Proposal may shift districts in House
By ROB NOVIT
Under a proposed B.C.
House redistricting plan.
Aiken County lawmakers would see their districts change to deal with shifting populations and growth statewide.
“The shift is fairly minor." said first-term Rep. Bill Taylor, R-Aiken. “We accommodated the needs of every district. It’s a good plan that serves communities of interest.”
Redistricting is mandated the year after the census ev cry decade. The revamped House seats will average ah*nit 37,300 residents, up from 32.000 following the 2000 census.
i All of the House members within the Aiken County delegation signed off on the proposal, including Lexington C ounty lawmaker Kit Spires. lf accepted by the House, the plan would go to the U.S. Justice Department for approval prior to the 2012 party primaries. Spires would leave the delegation under the proposal, “I have the opportunity to fill out the area in Wagener, Salley and Perry,’’ Taylor said. “Kit was needed into all of Lexington County. Ile had just a little piece of our county. I also took one little area of about 1,500 people in the Redds Branch area that Tom (Young) had

Hotter than normal temps are here for the week
By HALEY HUGHES
Temperatures are forecast to soar well above average this week, according to the National Weather Service.
Aiken is expected to see temperatures in the low- to mid-90s until the latter part of the week and into the weekend when a trough of low pressure will sweep into the area, said meteorologist Leonard Vaughan.
"We are pretty far above normal right now,” he said. “Yeah, it looks like there are going to be five days of hot temperatures.”
Today will be sunny with a high of 96 degrees.
A big ridge of high pres
sure has settled over the area, which is keeping the heat in place. It will move off toward the Atlantic Ocean heading into the weekend, making room for the trough of low pressure and cooler temperatures.
There will be a better chance of afternoon showers, too.
Until then, people should use caution if they plan to be outdoors for extended periods
