Hall County's budget woes are a bigger concern than NFL labor

Thank you for pointing out that pro football is big bucks. The unmentioned fact is this is a classic case of owners vs. workers. In my experience, when workers start telling me what to do with my business, it is time for the workers to move on. I am sure the NFL owners can do the same and the money machine will continue on.

Your taxes are going up, whether you like it or not

It is funny how no one has pointed out the fact that the Hall County commission has not said that it won't raise taxes even if massive cuts are made. I agree with Nathan Reed's earlier letter that the commission has already decided on a tax increase whether we like it or not.
