The Daily News' turtle statue

A turtle statue, dubbed Scoop, sits in front of The Daily News, 8522 Teichman Road in Galveston. The statue, designed by island artist Tracy Reed, is decked out in a newsboy-style cap and bag.


It's more likely than ever that residents and visitors of Galveston will come across a sea turtle as they meander about town — or at least a statue of one.

[thumbup] We love the island's turtles. They seem to just pop up everywhere.
