Thanks to all involved in golf tournament

Editor, The 12th annual Scholarship Golf Tournament held last month at the Taylors Creek Golf Course on Fort Stewart was very successful, and I encourage all golfers to take advantage of this great golf course and the staff's extraordinary customer service.

They treated us with the utmost respect, and I want to personally thank them for an exceptional customer-service experience - second to none.

Taxes are nobody's favorite expense. Most people view them as simply a nuisance bill to pay or as an added cost on a major purchase.

Moving away from 'funny math methods'
