Let's clear the air with regard to who is writing to you. I registered as a Republican while I was in serving in the U.S. Navy in the Gulf of Tonkin in 1972. I am politically to the right of Rush Limbaugh, admire Sean Hannity and think that the tea party folks are common-sense patriots. With that said, my income has declined by 65 percent since September '06. It is now getting back to where it was in 1994. It may take me a few more years to get back to my 2006 income level. In 1994, I had five children with a stay-at-home wife at home.

Union Bridge Mayor Perry L. Jones Jr. and Town Clerk/Treasurer Kathleen D. Kreimer last night proposed to increase the town's tax rate from 68 cents to 72 cents per $100 of assessed valuation, the tax residents were paying two years ago.Mr. Jones said this year that the tax rate likely would increase because of the costs associated with such projects as new municipal office construction and renovations to town utilities."We've got some work to do at the sewer plant and probably got some repairs to do to the water system, so this is the reason for the increase," Mr. Jones said.

If you run into an elected official in the next few weeks, don't be surprised if he or she is in a foul mood.This is the time of year when county and town officials are preoccupied with money. They will be putting the final touches on government budgets for the next fiscal year.Reconciling a county or town budget is the day of reckoning for politicians because it is when rhetoric runs headlong into reality.This is the time when elected officials who pledged to maintain services, build roads and schools, collect the trash, clean the streets and protect the public find they don't have enough money to deliver on those promises.
