#YeahTHATAgenda: Getting More Robo-calls Lately?, Mauldin Apts, Palmetto Health Lays Off 140 Workers, The Vacant Retail Storefront Future, Tracking Carriage Horse Pee

Have you been getting more spammers and robocalls lately? There's a reason for the that: the government shutdown. No, seriously.

Because of the ongoing D.C. standoff, the National Do Not Call Registry has been shutdown, and that means the government bodies in charge of receiving reports about spammers and robocallers -- and in some cases doling out nearly $42,000 fines for each call -- are unable to do much of anything.
