Today’s Editorial in the product produced by the Big Metal Shed on the Hill could appear to be hypocrite 101. Read it here.
Basically Jack McElroy is promoting and advocating that TN Board of Equalization not approve a Greenbelt exemption for Cherokee and Holston Hill Country Clubs. The Greenbelt law has allowed the country clubs to be exempt from some property taxes due to the open space of the golf courses.
The hypocrite status is that he and E.W. Scripps secured a PILOT (not a truck refueling convenience store but a Payment in Lieu of Taxes aka government welfare handout) to locate and build their Big Metal Shed on the Hill from a building a half a block off Gay Street out to their hill off of I-40 and Alcoa Highway.
In addition, to a corporate government welfare handout. Didn’t they also by locating out of the immediate downtown area to an area off Middlebrook Pike also contribute to urban sprawl? They will say NO. I am only asking the question.
