Looks like some of the so-called powers that be need to start doing their jobs and collect the taxes that the high and mighty owe. No wonder some businesses thrive and some die I guess if you don't have to pay your taxes your business could expand too.

Good way to acquire property. Newport use to print deliquent tax payers. Haven't seen that in a while. When was the last tax sale done ?

This is typical Cocke County government at work. I read another article in the Newport "newspaper" today that said the police department had been hiring people who were not even qualified to be police officers. However, I am glad to see that there are finally people who are standing up to the "good ole boy" network.

Hey city boy. You need to get a new pair of flip flops. The ones you are wearing are a little to tight. It keeps cutting of the blood flow to your brain. Chicago? Ya right. What a place full blacks and ghettos, traffic and hoes. Like we are going to learn something from a guy that is proud to be from a place like chicago. Get real! Chicago sucks, and is full of wall to wall people who are to dumb to know that Rednecks do it better, even upside down and in the woods. How about you get you some new flip flops, and than go sit in a traffic jam. A city boy from Chicago trying to put cocke county down? Like the pot calling the kettle black.

What does that have to do with people and businesses not paying their taxes here?Or are you one of the deadbeats avoiding your fair share?

Yes, Chicago has its problems, caused by the some of the exact same problems that go on here in Cocke County. Therefore, I think its good to see people actually taking a stand and attempting to do something to correct it instead of allowing it to go on.

I think you will find the paper said the sheriff's department was hiring unqualified people, not the police department.
