There was a time where upon landing at the airport one could walk down to the baggage section and find their baggage already waiting for them.
The service was excellent.
Many out of town travelers told me how much they enjoyed their experience at our airport.
With the highest homestead property tax rate and the second highest industrial property tax rates of the 50 largest cities in the United States we don’t look too good to companies that might want to relocate here.

Some in Washington believe that we should spend an additional $3.5 trillion on new programs.
I copied this from the abc.com news site the other day:
Defending a bill not yet fully drafted, Democrats are determined to avoid a deficit financed spending spree. They are growing frustrated by the focus on the proposed $3.5 trillion spending total, arguing far too little attention is being paid to the work they are doing to balance the books. Biden on Friday said he would prefer the price tag described as “zero.”
“The idea is that [the] entire package should pay for itself.”
“We pay for everything we spend,” Biden said at the White House. “It’s going to be zero. Zero.”
Evidently the way he expects to “pay” for this is with our money, through higher taxes.
