    How sad is this? He’s an elderly man needing money probably just to survive. I couldn’t have arrested him. I get what he did was wrong but sometimes people need a hands up not a put down. Where are people’s values these days… Really sad story.

      That’s today’s world. The connected people always win in America, the down and out are rungs on the ladder. Meanwhile, people like Robin Anderson pay zero taxes at her downtown headquarters (the real city hall) and the tax assessment on her house is dropped by $51,000. Tell me how the world is fair – it ain’t.

          Simple, public record, assessment did go down. Look it up yourself, since you won’t believe anyone else.

          Beacon website is free and open to the public.

          PS MC Chamber pays $0 tax on $800,000+ building at 9 North Federal, re-habbed by taxpayers. Stop in for a refreshment on her fancy coffee maker you can see from the sidewalk when you peek in the front window. But only if you pay Chamber dues.
