Spin the wheel. Around and around she goes and where she stops nobody knows. The govenment needs to stay out of the business world. Look what they have done with the the postal service,social secuity and the list goes on and on. Our local government as done just a great job with Convention Center over the last 10 years they really need to run a Ferris Wheel. According to the US Census the adverage median household income in Arkansas is $37,888.00. I know the people behind the Convention Center tax incomes are properly 3 times or greater and spending an extra $200.00 or $300.00 ayear wont affect them. I don't think we need another tax at this time to run a failing Convention Center. The adverage taxpayer gives up 42% to 50% in their income in some form of taxes. When I look at all the taxes(real estate,personal property,sales taxes,$25.00 per monthcell phones taxes( state,local, federal taxes),taxes on new tires, tags for cars,state income taxes, federal income taxes, taxes on gasoline,ss taxes, medicare taxes,unemployement taxes,sin taxes, and the list goes on and on. I know 1% doesn't sound like much but when you add all the taxes it amounts to a lot. If I could see any good the Convention Center as done in the last 10 years it might make a differance.
