GREENVILLE CITY COUNCIL TAX LEVY DISCUSSION

At the Greenville City Council meeting Tuesday night, the council discussed the 2013 tax levy.  The tax levy is a regular item on the council’s December agenda, but if a tax levy increase greater than 5% is anticipated, public hearings are required before the December meeting. City Manager Dave Willey said he would not recommend a tax levy increase in excess of 5% for the coming year so public hearings would not be required.  Manager Willey said he might recommend a 0% tax levy increase in the December meeting. 


GREENVILLE COLLEGE STUDENT WINS BIG ON MILLIONAIRE SHOW

Steve Mislich, a senior at Greenville College from Altamont, appeared on the Halloween-themed edition of “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” November 2.  Mislich, a math and computer science major, successfully navigated his way through the first ten questions with an accumulated Millionaire Bank of $63,600.00 and one remaining lifeline.  After giving an incorrect answer on the $100,000.00 question, he left the show with $25,000.00.  Mislich said "nothing can compare to the thrill of being on national television."  He plans to pursue a doctorate degree after he graduates from Greenville College in the spring and will use his winnings to purchase plane tickets to visit his long-distance girlfriend, Katie, who lives 600 miles away.
