RANTS TO THE GEORGIA Welcome center on Interstate 20 from North Augusta; it looks like it is closed, weeds and plants not trimmed for many months.

THE VOTERS OF Aiken County need to take note of any elected official who thinks it’s a good idea to raise our taxes any higher and vote them out of office as soon as possible. It’s called “make do with what you have,” just as all of the households do each month.

BEN BERNANKE, the head of the Federal Reserve, says the U.S. economy is growing steadily. The news writer says this is from a survey, “which is anecdotal,” which means it’s not necessarily true. Why does the U.S. government believe a man who has major control of our economy and whose
