    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.

    Hi, Trish

    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?

    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.
