Makes Too Much Sense
November 10, 2013 | 08:09 AM

This project makes to much sense in so many ways. This is not just any piece of land or just a place in Harrison County. This is a piece of land that has unbelievable historical value to many even beyond our borders. It is also an area that should be preserved for generations to come to protect it from being exploited in the future.

This is being paid for with riverboat revenue, which is not a tax paid for by Harrison County taxpayers. This project will be self funded from its own revenues and will never cost the citizens of Harrison County a single dollar. The whole purpose of river boat revenue when passed by the legislature was to fund one-time projects that did not create an ongoing tax burden that the taxpayers could not fund. We have not done a lot of that.

Thank goodness for people like Davis, Smith and Pendleton for having the fiscal responsibility to know that this was the purpose riverboat revenue was created for and shame on Heitkemper, Gerdon, Sherman and Brown for voting in the self interest of one family ...
