Column helps seniors

with important information

As always, that Real Life column in the July 13 newspaper answered questions that we didn't know to ask. It provides expert advice that addresses issues facing our senior age group.

I always clip the articles and share them with friends outside The Sun News area. We appreciate access to Gary Newman’s column.

Annexation

Decision will punish

business, homeowners

Once again our city leaders have shown their true colors. The whole annexation business stinks to high heaven. Businesses are going to be hard hit if they are annexed into the city.

Our esteemed mayor said: "It’s unfortunate for them. If they don't like it they need to contact Columbia and have the law changed." Well Mr.Mayor, in my humble opinion if these small businesses could affort the high taxes of Myrtle Beach, they would be in Myrtle Beach.

The taxes car dealers would pay in Myrtle Beach are $53,131. Compare that to: Columbia, $21,034; Charleston, $29,391; Greenville, $19,257; unincorporated Horry County, $4,100. Mr. Mayor and the city council are going to tax the homeowners and businessowners right out of town. Thanks for nothing.
