Many thanks to the community

Dear Editor:

To the People of Mineral Wells:

Since Jr.'s illness we have been shown so many acts of kindness. We want to thank everyone for all the visits, food, prayers and the monetary gifts. The benefit we know was a lot of hard work, but it was greatly appreciated. You never realize how many friends you have until a tragedy happens. Jr. is getting better as time goes on, but he still has a long recovery ahead. Again, thank you for everything everybody has done.

We love you and are so thankful. God bless you.

The Family of Jr. Gil: Jr., Kelli, Brittany and Kendal

 

Income tax is the real culprit

Dear Editor:

Congress and President Obama continue to disagree on ways to fix our economy while avoiding the real solution. The Income Tax is the real culprit. It is driving business overseas to avoid its penalizing effects. HR25, The Fair Tax Act, will change that. 

Every worker will receive their full paycheck without payroll taxes or income taxes deducted. Every business will not have to pay income tax or report any activities to the IRS. Imagine the effect of a consumption tax that will allow that to happen.
