Discouraged homeowner

I am the dummy that built his dream house just inside Montour County near Limestoneville. This is Warrior Run School District and also Danville (Montour County). The only good thing is Geisinger Health Plan for Montour County.

Warrior Run is talking about a raise increase of $150. Danville is thinking about a raise of $90 or so. Danville does nothing for us. Why we have to pay taxes to them is beyond me?

I am 78 and still do small jobs when I can get them. My wife is 74 and still driving school van. We have to keep working so we can stay in our dream home (log cabin). I have never collected unemployment. I served in the Marines at the end of the Korean War and drove truck all my life. My company went bankrupt in 1981 and I bought my own truck to make a living.

I wish I was a millionaire like our politicians. They don’t have to worry about health insurance and taxes.
