SalesTax Holiday The annual sales tax holiday is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 1, at 12:01 a.m. through midnight, Saturday, Aug. 2. During this time there is no sales tax charged on back to school items such as clothes and footwear. The De- partment of Revenue estimates that Iowans save about $4.4 million annually during this time. The exemption only applies to items that sell for $100 or less. There are rules to avoid cheating. For example, a pair of shoes that sells for more than $100 cannot be split up to sell two shoes for less than $100 each, in order to get the exemption. The Department of Revenue has more de- tails on its website. Illegals in Iowa? I was pleased to see that Governor Branstad has stated that he does not want young people crossing the south- "ern border illegally, to be brought to Iowa. Though we all sympathize with individual young people who live in third world countries, knowing the difficulties that they face, I believe most people agree that we cannot have an open border allowing anyone from anywhere in the world to come to this country. Also, how can we tell if those coming across the border are victims or per- petrators? The easier we make it for people, young or old, to cross the border illegally, the more we encour- age others to do so. I see that a number of liberals are working to bring young people who have illegally crossed the border to Iowa. They obviously do not care about the burden .that places on the taxpayers.
