SHORT TAKES: Sunday a glorious winter day


By Daily News • Last Updated 1:53 pm on Monday, February 25, 2013

Winter is still with us, and it looks like it will keep punching for a while longer.

But if we gotta have winter, let it be like yesterday. The sun was shining, the snow was beautiful, the temperature was moderate, a day perfect for ice fishing and the kids were sledding at Tower Mountain.

At this time of year, it doesn’t get any better than that.

Hats off to Daily News letter writer Pastor Alan Flowers of Spencer Mills Church in Gowen for alerting our readers to the ridiculously contradictory policy of  government subsidizing “green vehicles” on one hand, and then at another level considering “punishing” those vehicle owners with a fee because they’re not paying enough fuel tax.

This knee-jerk approach to levying citizen fees highlights the lack of coordinated, common-sense tax policies at multiple levels of government. This arises from a growing concern for their ability to fund current operations along with long term liabilities.

Mark this one on your calendar: 2013 Murder Mystery Dinner Theater. It’s offered this Friday and Saturday night (March 1 and 2) at the Greenville Area Community Center.

Have a great dinner and see rollicking comedy theater for $20 complete; or theater only for $15.  Dinner is at 6:30 p.m. and the show at 7:30 p.m. Either way you can also buy a pie and be a really big spender.

The current issue of Time Magazine contains a special report titled “Bitter Pill — Why Medical Bills Are Killing Us” This extensive report on the business of American medicine will surely tell you more than you want to know — but much of what you need to know — about the pricing and profits of today’s medical industry and what it can do to you and your loved ones.

Ignore this report at your own financial peril.
