Just wrong

There is an item in Monday's Soundoff (item #2, "Senior Citizens Should be Exempt" that is so wrong for two reasons...

First, renters DO pay taxes, through their rent. They pay the landlord, the landlord pays property taxes like the rest of us. Think about it.

Second, and most importantly, the blatantly racist comments about ethnic families have no place in this community or this newspaper. It's the sort of garbage you hear once in a while uttered by the uninformed and undereducated, and one can only hope that this attitude will fall away with the next generation.

It is amazing how many people believe that renters don't pay taxes. They pay it through their landlord who in turn pays the township.

School taxes based upon property value are unfair but they are unfair to all.
