The 'authorities' have heard and read many opinions from us fisherman that are all saying keep open the access. They just dont seem to care. Im convinced that the talk is cheap and aint gonna get any fisherman anywhere. It is mostly a bunch of laywers taking it all to the bank.

Taking what, exactly, to the bank? Lower tax revenues from decreased tourist spending?

The only ones who are making out here are the enviro groups who can hope to see their fund raising increased due to this successful effort and, of course, the plovers.

What do lawyers take to the bank? Big money. In legal question situations its lawyers that always do well. Why else would the fisherman groups need money to fight the battle? The enviros may be getting 'their' way, but it aint doing nothing for the fisherman or anyone really except the lawyers involved, as most access is going to be cut off for even foot traffic , eco wackos included.

It is bringing national attention/publicity to the OBX area in general, which probably isnt hurting business. I know some folks are saying, "better get there and live it, before it closes up for good". Problem is, for me anyhow, the fuel costs associated with getting there...
