A taxing issue; five year freeze on taxes raises questions
PADUCAH, Ky.--Both sides of the Paducah/McCracken County merger debate are using the tricky topic of taxes to get your vote.

Lots of people got that dreaded tax bill in the mail today. The money goes to lots of different places; the community college, fire department, State of Kentucky, public schools, and more. We found out the merged government leaders would only have the authority to freeze a couple of those categories.
