Since the reported killing of a piping plover chick at Pine Point Beach in Scarborough, Maine on July 15, 2013, the issue of dogs on the Town’s beaches has been a hot topic. In this blog, I hope to add some light to the heat this topic has already generated. My goals are to:
- and, where necessary, excoriate.
Any undertaking like this will necessarily have a point a view. Mine is simple — the people of Scarborough should control access to the Town’s beaches. Not a Federal agency. And not those members of the Town Council who are attempting to impose their personal opinions on the rest of us. I hope you will enjoy this small attempt to separate the real issues, motives and solutions from the phony ones.
