Good time to be in the road-building racket.$17M available and only $180K for "mass-transit". So, if you are too old, too young or too poor to drive, you don't matter. We have NO convenient passenger train service and no regional bus service at-all. I would call the Best Friends bus service more-than "shovel-ready". If they would be amenable to adding routs THEY should get a lot more of this 'pork'. Cars whizzing by on I-20 will not bring $17M to Aiken county. This money should do more to help the citizens of Aiken county, not just fill the pockets of construction companies.

Where are the re-paved roads at? Its been almost a year now, and the potholes, dips and other abberations have beat the piss out of my can and I need new shocks yet again.

On a side note, have you ever noticed that Sears here never has a "lifetime warranty" special on their shocks?
