  • Change of heart

    Butch Cecil isn’t afraid to admit that he was uneducated and misinformed when he signed the recallable nickel petition in 2007.
    He and his wife had just moved back to his native home of Marion County.
    He had just bought into the family farm, renovated his home and spent a considerable amount of money. So, when he saw a petition sitting on the counter at Blandford’s Store, he was curious.
    “What’s this?” Cecil remembers asking.
    “A petition to not raise your taxes,” someone in the store answered.
