075 tax bill in dollar bills

Surveillance video shows Julann Roe of Dade city walk in with three bags full of cash. Office workers said she didn’t say much and kept a rather straight face as she dropped the money down on the counter.

“Over 11,000 one dollar bills and 44 pennies,” said Pasco County Tax Collector Mike Fasano.

It took a total of six employees more than an hour to count it. Fasano said it was tax money due on property owned by Julann Roe and her husband Greg Roe, including their 41 acre estate in Dade City. A quick check of the property appraiser’s website reveals their home is worth more than $700,000.

Greg Roe said he and his wife just wanted to make a statement. They feel Pasco County taxes are too high.

“When you have to handle that much cash, then all of the sudden the amount of money you’re collecting becomes a little more obvious,” Roe said.

Outspoken at county commissioners meetings and public hearings, Roe said he works hard for his money and wants more say in where his taxes go.

“We feel like they are passing budgets demanding more and more of our money and we hollister ‘re saying when does it stop?” Roe said.

While Fasano said hollister the stunt is getting the couple a lot of attention, it is actually costing the tax payers money. He said i hollister t adds up to seve hollister ral hundred dollars for taking employees away from other tasks to count out all of those singles.

’100s of miners could be buried’

Welkom A former police officer who has 12 years of experience in cases of illegal mining, says he fears that hundreds more bodies of illegal miners could still be underground in mines in the city.

Over the past two weeks, the bodies of 69 illegal miners, or so called “zama zamas”, were brought to the surface after a fire started in the vicinity of Harmony’s Eland mineshaft on May 18.

“We have no idea what the extent of this is. We don’t know how many bodies are still underground. The safety of our workers comes first at this stage.”She said the death of the illegal miners was a tragedy. “Some of the illegal miners are just children. It is part of organised crime. Harmony has been working with the police for hollister the past few years to tackle the problem.”

She said the illegal miners used many unsafe practices. The gases, which caused their death, were probably caused by an underground fire. As the Eland mineshaft has not been in use for the past five years, there is no ventilation and the gases are even more dangerous.

Provincial police spokesperson Senior Superintendent Sam Makhele said six additional people were arrested on Tuesday night and taken in for questioning by police regarding illegal mining activities.

Post mortems on the last 25 bodies brought out on Tuesday were held on Wednesday, and their deaths were attributed to inhalation of smoke hollister and gas.

“This mining company should investigate the possibility that their own staff allow the so called illegal miners underground.”

Seshoka said they called for an urgent investigation into how these people gained access to the mine, and how it was possible that security was unaware of it.

The trade union Solidarity on Wednesday wrote a letter to Susan Shabangu, the minister of mining, asking that hollister the crisis of illegal mining activity in South Africa be investigated.

Shabangu visited the mineshaft on Tuesday.

Advocate Paul Mardon, Solidarity’s chief of occupational health and safety, said the aim of the investigation had to be to determine what the factors were that led to illegal activities, the impact this had on the mining industry and the South African economy, as well as which steps should be take hollister n to prevent these illegal practices from continuing.
