PSP Supporters Brought the Heat

By Leslie Lowe,
The wind was cold a Saturday night at the beautifully decorated Laguna Harbor Sales Center, but it didn’t stop the warm hearts of Peninsula Sports Park supporters from attending the 3rd Annual BBQ Dinner & Auction. Everyone enjoyed a delicious dinner provided by Red Marks and Guy Gatewood. Houston Rockets tickets,

Problems and unanswered question with the US Army Corps’ Coastal Barrier Alternative:

By Matt Pace
First off, I am not in favor of a coastal spine being built down the Bolivar Peninsula and along Galveston Island.

This can be done by building properly and insuring adequately against the wind and storm surge risks
