A frequently quoted statistic by those trying to justify the huge disparity in U.S. wealth is that the top 10 percent pays 70 percent of federal income taxes. This is a classic example of a true but meaningless statistic because this situation can happen with all sorts of income and tax-rate scenarios. These include some with huge income disparities and with flat tax rates that are popular with Republican presidential candidates.

There is a skate park at Tenney Park on Northeast 88th Street in Hazel Dell, and I have had many conversations and calls to Bjerke. Tenney Park was put in before Pacific and we have been having the same issues. I would think the county would have looked at that park and planned ahead.
