Welcome to Scarborough Beaches Alert!


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:

  • inform
  • analyze
  • entertain
  • 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.
