The Town of Chincoteague is a bit like a foreign country down there. They may get some funding from the state, but most comes from the town's 5 percent extra sales tax on the island, paid mostly by tourists. Ever see the firehalls there? Taj Mahals compared to most places all paid for by the tourists wanting to see a pony. A town of 3,000 year round residents' fire company takes in about $225,000 to $300,000 thousand a year from the sale of their wild ponies. Interesting that a Sheriff would say that. We need a Sheriff to say -- to the illegal alien sanctuaries and round a bunch up.
