Really? Depressed for all those years? Enough to FORGET to pay? You must have been doing a GREAT job as a Supervisor and an attorney if you were that upset. Quit with the yuppie "hiding behind an excuse" and "MAN-UP", you spoiled brat. My God, you're too old and too educated for US to believe that garbage...

so what, there are hundreds of them all over the county who do not pay their federal taxes, or their state taxes, or their workers' compensation taxes, but not all of them get to be lucky enough to have it posted; read the newspapers and you all will see who they are, not just lawyers, doctors, dentists, etc., but other everyday people... then there are the ones who have foreclosures filed against them, for apartment houses they own, but have not had seized by the feds... the economy is so bad that this seems like the only thing to do, publish...

I certainly agree that every citizen should pay their taxes, but the bigger question this raises is how much of our taxpayer money was spent chasing down $60k? And now going to be spent in each of the court cases?

Doesn't seem like a very wise decision. Maybe this could have been dealt with by an audit or other notification by the state prior to their arrest?

Mike Green, I really question your motives here.

Yeah,Rich Miller is a good judge of character. He's been a shady businessman for years. If he's endorsing Mr. Lester,I'd have to say "guilty as charged".

It dosen't matter how much it costs--you break the law you should be taken to court.

I would like to know which "party" they belong to.It's seems strange that the news didn't say anything -- wonder why? I would bet we all know.
