“We are blessed to have found this,” said Bob Joseph, 64, a retired Connecticut high school teacher who moved with his wife to Dorchester County last year. He said his property tax bill is nearly $8,000 lower than in Connecticut. “We’ll be here a year next month,” said Joseph, who lives in the growing Summers Corner community. “We’ve probably watched 60 or 70 people move in. Every day we just look each other and pinch each other, that’s how much we love it.”
