Ralliers Urge State to Cut Spending, Not Raise Taxes

BY Todd Volkstorf

The idea that North Carolinians are overly and unfairly taxed drew about 65 people to an anti-tax rally Wednesday evening at Wilmington City Hall. "It's not a budget crisis. It's a spending crisis," said Jonathan Hill, director of Citizens for a Sound Economy, referring to why the state has a projected $ 900 million budget deficit. Supporters, armed with anti-tax posters and propaganda, lined the aluminum bleachers in place for the Azalea Festival Parade. Rush hour motorists continuously honked their horns at the crowd, as their posters urged.

County Thanks Coach

UNCW Seahawks coach Jerry Wainwright said New Hanover County has been a good home to his team, which continues to enjoy national attention after playing two rounds in the NCAA Tournament. The team has a sense of responsibility to Wilmington and the county, Mr. Wainwright said to the County Commissioners, who presented him with a proclamation congratulating the team on its winning season. "They don't feel like they're away from home," he said. "They feel like they 're home. It's been a great place to play."

City taxes protested / Some in annexed areas haven t paid

BY Bettie Fennell

Wilmington's newly annexed residents haven't paid more than a third of the taxes they owe for the first nine months they were in the city. Only 63 percent of taxes owed by residents who were annexed Sept. 30, 2000, have been paid for the nine-month period that ended June 30, 2001, said New Hanover County Tax Administrator Bob Glasgow. He said about 100 of those taxpayers paid under protest by submitting letters that say they don't consent to Wilmington's taxing authority, now or in the future.

Beach access on the meter EDITOR: On my first visit to the North Carolina coast about a dozen years ago, I was very pleased to learn that, wherever a street or a road had to stop for the ocean, a nice agency called CAMA had placed a sign indicating that the general public could gain access to the beach at that point.

Residents to rally before meeting

BY Gareth McGrath

Fed up with having to pay more tax because of annexation and what they claim to be questionable county expenses, dozens of New Hanover County residents plan to picket before Monday's County Commissioners meeting. The group will then present its complaints to the commissioners during the meeting, said Esther Potter, one of the leaders of the nameless grassroots movement. Ms. Potter, caught Monday taking a break from making protest signs, said she 's simply had enough. "I just woke up one morning and said, 'I am fed up and I want to be heard,' " she said.
