July 4th and The Beach…they go together!

fourth0Nothing says Summer quite like the 4th of July holiday – and the beach, of course! Where else can you spend your days in the sun and sand, grilling and refreshing your thirst, laughing with friends and family, and enjoying the sparkle of fireworks when the sun goes down?! Crystal Beach offers all of this fun, and so much more. The weather will be favorable and the crowds will be plenty. The surf will be inviting and

Roping off beach not allowed

From William Comeaux, Galveston County
Roping off, fencing off, reserving part of the beach etc. is not allowed. This past jeep weekend there were so many sections of beach that were “reserved” starting a week before the event that day beach visitors had no spot to set up, beach crews couldn’t effectively do their job, our garbage contractor had a hard time emptying barrels and in some cases when the tide got high, the staked off area blocked travel down the beach. Starting this week, if we find a staked off area that is unattended on Bolivar Beaches, it can be removed and discarded so that all visitors can enjoy our beaches.

An Interesting Find

Ah the memories

GO-0627By Georgia Osten
It’s really quite endearing watching all the memories come flooding back. Our 9 year old granddaughter arrived last week for a visit with Grandma and PawPaw, aunts and uncles and lots of cousins. We’ve been anticipating this visit for at least a year now. Addyson was to fly all by herself on a non-stop flight from Raleigh, NC. No, she wasn’t afraid, she’s

Guarding those little grudge books

Brenda Cannon HenleyBy Brenda Cannon HenleyThe last three words of Verse 5 of Chapter 13 in 1 Corinthians are very important to us as we live and work today in this busy world of ours. Genuine love “thinks no evil, or is not ready to accept evil.” So many human beings think evil even at times when there are no real clues or reasons for them to do so. They look at a given situation, problem, person or task and begin to

Easy-to-Use Tool to Keep Houston-Galveston Communities Clean

GBF_0We all want clean neighborhoods, but does anyone know the specific agency that cleans up pollution in our cities and communities? The problem is that it’s not just one agency responsible for responding to all kinds of water and land pollution – it’s a myriad of county, state, and local government entities in any given region that each respond to different kinds of pollution. The agency in your
