RI delegation backing Internet tax

December 16, 2013

PROVIDENCE — This may be the last Christmas shopping season when you can buy gifts online without paying a sales tax.

Legislation called the Marketplace Fairness Act, which would allow states to tax online and catalog purchases, even when the seller has no location or employees in their states, is making its way through the U.S. Congress.

The Senate passed the measure last May and it is now awaiting passage in the House of Representatives.

A taste of Mexico, Guatemala arrives at new Pawtucket eatery

December 16, 2013

PAWTUCKET — From breakfast and lunch to dinner and late-night dancing, La Vaca Flaca has it all.

The new, family-owned restaurant at 139 Broad St. has an ambitious plan to be many things to many people, with its first priority being to serve fine quality Mexican and Guatemalan food.

La Vaca Flaca means “The Skinny Cow,” and Isai Diaz, one of the three owners, said he got the inspiration for the name from an American menu. Working as a long-distance truck driver, he said he had stopped at a restaurant in a little town in the middle of the mountains somewhere in Tennessee.
