After reading Dr. Reid’s comments last week about the proposed police facility, I would like to clarify some issues.

After 30 years in real estate specializing in golf course valuation and consultation, it has always been my belief that golf for young boys and girls is of primary importance in their early development. Golf is not only a sport enjoyed by men and women of all ages, it lends a positive attitude to future health and overall mental stability for young boys and girls.
