To the Editor:

It is true I have been accused of being a negative person concerning a few of the letters I have written to the editor. I don’t think pointing out the obvious is being negative, but what can I say. Today, I’ll try to be very positive. 

I don’t understand what all the fuss is about concerning the $50,000 spent by Jackson County for the branding slogan “Pay On.” I mean after all Jackson County has plenty of tax money paid by the “peons.” The peons are perfectly content to sit back and allow our leaders to spend and spend even more to attract the tourist who will spend and spend their hard earned dollars. We must embrace the wisdom of our leaders and “Pay On”. “Pay On,” Jackson County peons, “Pay On,” and remember to smile.
