A recent front page had three articles about taxes.

1. Pushing for the county tax. We do not need this tax. I hear the state penalized us by capping our property increases by 1 percent only. Who gets the income from this tax? Think about it.

2. Lake County wants a $25 wheel tax. Who needs it?

3. A referendum because three school systems need money. They want property taxes increased. Who is going to get the money?

We are all ready overtaxed. Remember the lottery? It was suppose to be for education and roads and highways. The state should give an accounting to the all residents as to the expenditures.
