Well, you are not only blatantly political in this rant but also severely misinformed and inaccurate. The rampage of statements like yours saying the beaches are "closed" has kept many, many tourists away. You would do yourself and your readers and the Outer Banks a better service by understanding the history of the Consent Decree and the reasons why Judge Boyle,a renowned conservative, had little choice but to implement the management system now in place. A system to manage ORVs on CHNS beaches was required by law 35 years ago and upheld after varirous challenges and by further federal actions. Of all National Seashores required to implement a management plan, only CHNS management failed to do so, mainly because of intimidation by various individuals and organizations, many of which remain among us. Maybe you are one of them. If you would like your rental property to remain attractive to people who will care well for it and the beach, you would be smart to support the protection of the natural areas and wildlife around you that draw people here to begin with instead of bashing the protection attempts.
