  • LETTER: Reader says 'repeal' school tax

    Sometimes before church on Sunday morning I listen to a talk program on WHAS. This program is hosted by a fellow named Joe Elliott.

But ultimately, our goal is to grow our business by providing services that consumers want and need at competitive prices.

    When our business grows, so do jobs. If we do business right, our customers grow with us. In the end, making the right choices is right for the economy, jobs and our businesses.
