A word from Jack Pratt

Wilson County Assessor of Property
Every six years, all of the taxable property in Wilson County is reassessed for tax purposes per state law (T.C.A. 67-5-1601), and the year 2011 marks our next state-mandated reappraisal.

This week your Property Assessor’s office will be sending out assessment change notices to all property owners. The notice you will receive includes this year’s appraisal and assessment values and last year’s assessment value. This isn’t your tax bill; this is your notice of value.


Letters to the Editor

I didn't get any answers from Corker

To the Editor:
I attended a private gathering a few weeks back to meet and hear Senator Bob Corker.

He made a smiling entrance and stood on a small platform to address us. He commented that while we were probably all concerned about the financial condition of our nation, it would probably “hurt our feelings” if Congress began to cut back on Medicare, Social Security and funds for the military.

When he turned and asked for questions, I was the first to wave my hand and this is what I said:
“Senator, it would not hurt my feelings if we stopped sending funds to Egypt to refurbish their mosques, and it would not hurt me at all if we stopped sending foreign aid to the 130 of 192 countries in the world, and it REALLY would not hurt my feelings if we enforced our illegal immigration laws which are costing our country over $383.3 billion a year.”

He then said he didn’t think it was $383.3 billion, not that much, so I asked for his email so that I could send him the statistics. One woman gave me a thumb’s-up to show approval as I asked the question, and another came up to me after the party and said, “He didn’t answer any of your questions, did he?” No, and I didn’t get the email address, either.
