DON’T BRING SAND TO A BEACH EXCEPT IN GALVESTON!

DO YOU THINK GALVESTON WILL RECOVER AFTER HURRICANE IKE?

Galveston is seeing some of its worst financial days since hurricane Ike hit last year. The city is facing a multimillion dollar budget shortfall, schools could be closing, they no longer have their trauma center in UTMB and the beach is gone. That’s right gone. So what is the resort and tourist city doing to address this issue? They’re actually bringing sand to the beach. I was standing on the seawall Wednesday when I noticed several big dump trucks hauling in sand. After Ike hit the seawall was left sandless. As a result of the problem the city decided to do exactly what your father told you not to do and that’s take sand to a beach. Good luck guys. To the readers out there, do you think Galveston can make a comeback? The Insite would love to hear your opinion!
