Readers have been debating what crews from the Galveston Park Board of Trustees should do with the seaweed that has been washing ashore on the beaches — clean the beaches for tourists or let the seaweed build up on the sand?


I do not like to hear that the Park Board has no money.

Why don’t officials buy some land and have a truck dump the seaweed on the land they buy?

Then it would bring more tourists to the beaches in Galveston.

They don’t like the smell of seaweed.

It makes you sick to your stomach.

People would appreciate our beaches more if they took care of the seaweed piles.
