2A77__l~__Ma___~koff_ N~e~__,Thu~Y, Feb. 12, !981 .... @ il , o 20 years ago L Work of the new Henderson County Appraisal District is un- derway and officials of local governments have been called on to make their first payments to support the legislative mandated overation. The idea behind the new district is for more equalized taxation within counties, at a lesser cost. Local tax agency officials have complained that the cost is not less, but in fact a much greater expense for taxpayers. Irregar- dless, the law states that the fee assessed on each tax district must be paid, or taxes within that district cannot be collected. Showing at the Trail Drive-In in Athens this week is "One Foot in Hell" starring Alan Ladd. Second feature is "Jet Over the Atlantic" with Guy Madison and Virginia Mayo. Weekend specials at Phillips Foods are cake mixes, 3 for $I; Lettuce, 10 cents a head; slab bacon, 49 cents a pound; and fresh frozen hens, 29 cents a pound.

Malakoff city councilmen have spent many hours in the past 30 years ago , several months discussing the costs, advantages and disadvan- tages to their district. They have determined that taxpayers will James Walter 'Tapley, 54, brick yard pay more, at least for the next five years, for nothing better than they have now. Malakoff councilmen postponed approving the mandated payment of over $6,000 for several months, and then finally voted against the payment with a 3-2 split vote. At the next meeting they received letters from the city attorney advising them that by law they must pay, or risk the entire city's tax base. At that meeting they voted to pay the fee. \ Later, councilman Tommy Tanner said, "I don't know why they asked us to vote on it if we don't have any choice." We agree. Adults don't appreciate being placed in the position of puppets on a string. Especially when someone keeps pulling the string on the right arm. The appraisal district may someday become what it was en- visioned to be by our state legislators. For the sake of local tax- payers we sincerely hope so. Until then, however, local officials should not be placed in a position of approving payment of something that they have no real choice about. It makes a mockery of their vote. ANN ROUNSAVALL employee here, was found dead Friday afternoon beneath his pickup truck just off a sharp roadway curve a few hun- dred yards east of the Texas Clay Products plant: Tapley was on his way to work when the fatal accident oc- cured.
