Re: Story, Oct. 29, “Citizen rescue prompts talk of beach safety”

The article is exactly why the tourist bed tax dollars should be used for something other than area promotion or publicity! We gather the bed tax dollars because of our popularity; that popularity brings us tourists longer in the season. Higher security and/or monitoring of the beach expenses should be covered by income brought about by the very people who need these functions. Why this never happens makes no sense to me!
