Election nears, races heat up

As the March 7 primary election draws near ­ less than a month away ­ political sparring, spinning and campaigning is at its fullest.

Opposition to tax rollback forms PAC

Concern about the consequences of a rollback election recently led to the formation of a political action committee whose major objective is to inform taxpayers about the issues that comprise the 2006 Comal County budget and that led to a 2-cent tax increase to fund it.

Understanding the effective tax rate: A voter's lesson

In order to understand the commotion surrounding the 2-cent Comal County tax rate increase that made taxpayers go out to sign a petition for a rollback election with less than a penny of tax increase hanging in the balance, a lesson is needed about the effective tax rate.
