Everything is getting higher except wages. At what point does it stop. Gas, clothes, electric bills, food prices all have went up even higher in the last couples of months that even people with good jobs are having a really hard time making the ends meet.

Honestly, I make more money than I did ten years ago, but in comparison to the cost of living then and now verses my wages, I am clearing sooooo much less than I used to on the basics.

Preach on Reading you are exactly right.

Food and gas are our budget killers. They don't take coupons for gas but the grocery stores do and that's the way we shop. What's on sale is what's on the menu! No coupon, no buy.

Keep raising taxes! - Keep spending money you do not have! Keep depending on Washington! We know what they do. Elected Leaders of Cannon County and the city of Woodbury start thinking for yourself. Do not wait on everyone else. We may need a middle school but we can not afford it. If you can't figure it out step down!

Everybody is having to cut back....and so should our county/city. Maybe a middle school is needed...but NOT RIGHT NOW.....also property taxes.....they do not need to be raised either. What happens if the taxes are raised and no one can afford them.....property might be able to be sold...but then again....it might not be able to be sold....so....make do with what you have now.....just like the rest of us. Same goes for wheel tax too!
