Income tax moves closer

February 15, 2013

BUCKLAND — Buckland Village Council members heard the second reading Thursday of an ordinance to institute a 1 percent income tax on village residents.

Councilors began looking into the possibility of instituting the 1 percent income tax in November after voters defeated a 2.6-mill property tax levy on the November general election ballot. The levy was expected to generate approximately $20,000 annually.

The income tax ordinance will provide zero tax credit for people working in Buckland and living out of town.

For the past seven decades, Betty has been Vernon’s Valentine.

And for those same 70 years, Vernon has been Betty’s Valentine.

This year, Betty and Vernon Schwarck will be celebrating with chimichangas at El Azteca.

“I guess when we were first married he would get me a heart-shaped box of candy or flowers, but that hasn’t been for years,” Betty said.

The 89-year-olds lived a simple life through the years, she said.

That simple life may just be what kept their love so strong, Betty remarked.
