National Geographic typically does do a Christianity related feature for its December issue and over the years, I recall, we have had some good ones. If I go and look and my ‘small’ pile of SAVED NatGs I might even be able to tell you what some of them were. Well, I will be keeping this one too.
To be honest, given that I studied the history of the Bible for a couple of years, I knew most of what I have read so far. But, what makes this special is the peerless NatG graphics, photographs, research and access. The graphics are SUPERB. There is one which is a pictorial summary of what is contained in each book of the Bible — Old and New Testament. Neat.
If you are interested in this topic you really should ‘read’ this. I haven’t tried to read it online. I faithfully subscribe to the printed version every year.
Well, I just wanted to make sure you knew about this.
A 8.8% increase with no change to the assessed property values. No wonder the bill seemed high. It is HIGH. The school again. Funny thing is I can’t recall reading or hearing about a major increase to the tax rate.
I realize that most people don’t see the increase per se. Their property tax payment is included with their mortgage payment. But, they will see it at some point and it will be a shock.
Well, I have given you a heads up.
We have had higher tax rates, BUT valuations were lower. It is the COMBINATION of the two that adds up and counts.
