Only the rich are heard when it comes down to taxes

I would like to express my disappointment in WLOS' coverage of Biltmore Lake/Enka Lake annexation story. Why did the residents of Enka Village not get the same coverage? Is it because they do not have the capital that the residents of Biltmore Lake have? For your information, when Enka Village was annexed we fought it and fought it hard. Some of the residents of this neighborhood have lived there since these homes were built in 1929. For them to be annexed meant that they could loose their homes because they are on fixed incomes. But did anyone hear their cries?

Enka Village is right smack in the middle of Biltmore Lake and Coca-Cola. I can understand why Coca-Cola was not annexed because they would have moved and we would have lost jobs. So, why on God's green earth did they choose to pick on Enka Village. Again, not as much capital to fight it.

I thought the news was supposed to report the truth in all stories. It is because of these types of incidents that we are having protests on Wall Street. Only the rich are heard when it comes down to taxes. Maybe you should look up the history on Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette and why they were both beheaded because of class war.
