CONVENIENCE STORE VIOLATIONS -- The St. Augusta Mini-Serv will have to go through another round of ID compliance training or face a fine after another failed check. The St. Augusta City Council fined the store $500 -- which can be waived if all store employees go through more training. It was the store's fourth violation in a 2-year-period.
