Remembering Mr. Ben

A while back, the chief tax assessors from counties throughout Georgia asked me to speak to their gathering at Jekyll Island. We frequent the Golden Isles, but we are normally on St. Simons or Sea Island so it had been a few years since I had been on Jekyll. It is a beautiful island, but my favorite moment of discovery was learning that one of its streets in the village is named “Ben Fortson Way.”
