Dear Editor,

I am against extending the one-cent sales tax for the city of Searcy. The issue for me is not the money. The issue is the unfairness of the tax.

The Searcy Country Club pays no city taxes (no property taxes, no sales taxes, no liquor taxes, no A&P taxes). This is just not fair to the rest of our citizens that do not frequent the club. Those fine folks who are privileged to belong to an exclusive club do not have to pay city taxes when using their membership.

I will make a bargain. If anyone can give me one good reason, just one, why the Searcy Country Club should not be annexed to the city, and help pay Searcy taxes, I will support the tax.
