Comments: Would like to see more pieces on turtles, dolphins and whales by Cindy Lane. And what's up with the Pilot whales beaching themselves in FL?
The welfare of these creatures is a
good indication of the state of health of this planet.

Comments: Our condo is across the street from the Gulf I. Holmes
Beach. We have just installed 2 new lanterns on the front gate. I am wondering if the lights are too bright for the Turtle Watch??

Comments: When the city purchased the vacant lot across from the pier for 2.5 million or so we were promised it would not be used for parking. So much for that. I do agree that public restrooms are needed in that area partly to take some load off the pier. But how long will it take the city to recoup the 2.5 million from the added business brought to the area by the parking ? Several life times I suspect. Since most of us that own property can't vote you can see why we might be upset by how things go here. Idiocy never left here.

Comments: It is true that the Sandbar was there before 1970. But it was a neighborhood
bar and they had Dixie Land Bands on Sunday and it was all inside, nothing outside. Today, it is nothing like it used to be. Now, it is all commercial
