There are and will always be MOTELS scattered throughout Galveston for families of modest means. This is about prime waterfront property on the closest beach to the 4th largest city in the US. Let's please stop thinking small.

I'm totally in favor of reasonable ordinances that provide a balance of requirements and rewards for developers to 'upgrade' Galveston. We've spent far too long thinking of ourselves as second class. Remember the parking issue: "If we charge no one will come"? Bicycle down the beac…

This 'joyous occasion' was... what? My whole point. "Kum-Ba-Yah-in-a-Can" thrown as a bone to groups still feeling depressed over the results of the last election. Based on the timing and content, that's all it could possibly be. I'm not opposed to the idea of being welcoming, but …
