Capitol Corner: America Needs Fair Tax
By Guest Columnist Representative Lynn Westmoreland

WASHINGTON DC - As the April 15th tax deadline arrives, we are reminded once again of our broken system and the need for a simplified tax code.

Our current tax code is over 73,000 pages long and equally as complex. By constantly segmenting taxpayers with brackets and exemptions, the tax code is becoming more complicated. We all have an equal stake in the success of our nation and for the services our tax dollars provide. However, manipulation and abuse are more prevalent in a complicated tax system, because of its difficulty for even experts to navigate. The recent abuse from the IRS is another shining example of why the Fair Tax is needed. With a simplified tax code, there isn’t a need for the large agency. Click here for more.

Animal Control Ordinance Now in Effect in Pike County
By Editor Becky Watts

ZEBULON - Animal control has been a hotly debated topic in Pike County for years. Those who support it do so with the knowledge that it will cost money and that the cities will need to participate and pay a portion of the cost. Those who are against it have various reasons including the fact that some people in the country take care of their own problems. Lack of animal control in Pike County has been discussed for a long time, but the talk turned to something more in 2007 and the State of Georgia has now mandated some aspects of animal control for all counties including Pike County which does not have an animal control facility.
