Re: No Booze on the Beach (letters, July 19).
I have to wonder what beaches the author of this complaint is walking. Probably Island View Park, where I see a continuing problem with beach fires strewn with bottles and cans from the night before.
That is a problem and I wish the police would crack down hard on it.
Actually I wish the people who have those fires and leave all there garbage behind would grow up and realize they aren’t the only people on the planet. If they took all their waste with them I would be OK with the fires.
As far as booze on the beach goes there needs to be sensible judgement calls. A responsible family enjoying a bottle of wine watching the sunset with a picnic is one thing and should be encouraged with a designated driver.
A bunch of loud drunks burning logs and strewing garbage just ruins it for everyone and should penalized.
