  1. “Requirements they remain on their feet at all times and accept tips only in a garter also have been removed.”……….maybe the voters in RC should adopt this criteria for compensating their corrupt “leaders”…….if any of them are corrupt……wink wink nudge nudge……

    • Correct, they ruined downtown, desecrated south Augusta, and now they want to put the nail in the coffin by supplying all of the thugs and low life’s with easier targets of opportunity. This is not going to end well but I think I will end Augusta. While we are at it why not bring in a few more gangs, not near enough killing going on yet.

Make patrons pay to enter and exit through the one gate in the wall. Elected officials and gang members come and go gratis.
