Talk with 'The Doctor' beats counseling

Regular readers of this column are no doubt familiar with my imaginary friend, The Doctor. I often call upon him to solve behavior problems of various sorts, from bedtime to toilet training, with young children. Well, he's done it again!

Will 10,000 landowner or 65,000 visitors pay for projects?

I read with interest a recent column submitted to the newspaper concerning SPLOST and ad valorem taxes. While I fully support one's right to free speech and voting, I am troubled by incompleteness and/or inaccuracies in material discussed. While the kinder and gentler side of me attributes this to "just a small misunderstanding of the true facts," I feel it's necessary to accurately inform readers on these matters.
