From KBTV Ch.4
I don’t know if y’all have heard the lastest on some of our elected are in favor of closing the pass since the storm we as concerned fishing commuity residents do not want this. There will be a meeting at the First Baptist Church on Monday 16th at 6:00 pm. We would like everyone who shares our concerns to attend. Thank You.
the meeting will be held in high island
Could you please verify if the meeting is at First Baptist Church in High Island, and the address? Will any elected official be there to hear your concern, or is it just a planning meeting?
Lorenzo sorry for not posting the address. The was held Monday as planned the Gilchrist Community Assocation went over plans to fight to kept Rollover Pass opened if anyone would like to help us as a community, you are more than welcome the more people the bigger the fight.Go to http://www.rolloverpasstexas.com and join us to kept the pass open.Closing Rollover Pass would really hurt us I was one of many business owners of Gilchrist I was blessed to meet people from Alaska,Canada and coast to coast that come to the Peninsula just to fish Rollover some come more than just once a year.Some here on the Pennisula are for closing the pass so we need all the outside help we can get.It’s as if Ike didn’t do enough to us now this.(A NOT SO NICE COMMENT BUT HERE GOES ALL YOU PEOPLE WHO COME TO FISH OUR PASS PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE TAKE YOUR TRASH WHEN YOU LEAVE OUR HOME IKE DID ENOUGH TO US AND IT IS GOING TO TAKE US AS PEOPLE TO FIGHT FOR WHAT WHE HAVE LEFT !)Thanks 2 all who are concern!:trish:
Sorry Trish, most land owners on Bolivar are opposed to keeping the man made artificial pass open. Ike showed how the constant erosion due to the pass’ currents undercut the land and beach and caused massive loss of property. It’s no accident the news crews focused on Rollover and it’s 1 remaining house. Crystal beach in comparison was barely affected.
We lost our 1910 historic beach house in Caplen to Ike. Erosion took it, not waves or water. My family of 50 enjoyed it as a place to reconnect each summer from all over the US. Home owners like us really could care less about the fishing on the stinky nasty pass. The fishing economy can’t even support operating a viable fishing pier in Bolivar, just bottom feeders who go to the free pass. It’s not natural, it’s man made.
The pass should be closed, but sadly, only locals who rely on the fishing industry for money or recreation vote. Non-resident owners are never represented.
