Higgins Beach Purchase

So all you silly people voted yes to buy a beach. Why? It can't be because we have no other beaches. I mean, c'mon, we only live on an island. How many beaches do we need?

I for one (and I know I'm not alone) would have rather let the land be developed for private use rather than add another beach that now will drain more money from taxpayers as we pay for the facilities that will be required, the parking areas and the additional maintenance required so that those few people out North may have their own 'private' beach. So a heartfelt thank you goes out to all of you uneducated knits for giving those leaches another reason to raise our taxes in the near future.
