WTOL Editorial: Mayor Bell is doing what he needs to do

The entertainment tax is really unpopular. The people who operate the entertainment venues are against it.

The Lucas County Commissioners don't like it. And it seems like most of you don't think much of it either.

Well, I think Mayor Mike Bell is being practical. He doesn't have a lot of choices so an entertainment tax is at least someplace to start.

If any of you have suggestions about how to attack this budget deficit, send me an email. I will gladly do another editorial that highlights your ideas.
