The Big Picture

I see the individual that commented on replenishing "Saving Beaches" does not realize how much money our state received from the tourist that come to our beaches each and every year. It is sad that people cannot see the BIG PICTURE when it comes to this subject...the amount of dollars that would be lost from revenue would only result in higher taxes throughout the state. Yes, it is hard to win when it comes to Mother Nature; however, are we going to let all of the homes be taken?? What about the taxes that are obtained from all of those property homeowners?? One might say...well they should have never built an ocean front home, well I say that permits were given and for all of those permits a home was built. It is easy to turn our backs once we received the money (permits, inspections department) isn't it? Everyone needs to realize that in some way shape or form most individuals who live in NC at some point have visited a beach. The ocean is a beautiful sight; however, if we cannot sit and enjoy it because we have no beach to sit on what is the point?
