Who likes to pay taxes? Nobody

And while we Fayette County residents don’t like taxes, we do like the unique quality of life we’ve come to enjoy in our county. In normal times, most of our government services, such as public safety, recreational amenities, roads, and infrastructure maintenance, are financed from property taxes and sales tax, with the income and outgo […]

Writer ignores ugliness at other marches
