Last Word

Tourism sales tax

Gazette readers are still complaining about the deplorable Tommy Tax, and some plan to avoid it by doing most of their shopping outside the Historic Triangle. That will hurt local merchants, and they might want to consider offering a 1 percent discount to locals until we can get the tax repealed.

Road worries

Our governor needs to pass a law where you cannot eat or talk on the phone while driving. They are not only talking, but they are texting, too.
