Knox County Budget Stumps Toe of Big Metal Shed

Sources from within the BIG Metal Shed on the Hill inform us that the editorial staff had several editorials written to be published prior to Knox County Commission approving the County budget on June 4, 2009.

The problem for Editor Jack McElroy and crew is that the County Commission approved the budget on May 26, 2009. Oops, ole' McElroy came up short on editorials. Gonna have to write a couple of new ones to replace the ones that are now in the trash can.

Why does the Big Metal Shed on the Hill criticize a budget with NO property tax increase in over 10 years, given schools, law enforcement everything that they have asked for the past 8 years? However, they don't criticize the City of Knoxville budget. Does it have to do with the 50,000 newspapers that Pilot Travel Centers buys every Friday?
