  • Coroner: County spends more on dead animals than dead people

    County government spends nearly as much getting rid of dead animals as it does dead humans, and that has to change.

    That was just part of the message Coroner Dr. Mark Tussey and his staff delivered to magistrates during last Tuesday’s meeting of the Anderson County Fiscal Court.

    Like the $50 instructional fee parents of high school students who don’t receive free or reduced lunches are “required” to pay, the fee to play sports is optional.

    That’s right, it’s optional, but don’t expect to hear or read that anywhere else.
