The article in the Press about Gladstone beach in the Sept. 15 issue referring to the cigarette buts.
There was a time when that wasn't a problem. Part of the lifeguards duties were making sure the beach was clean. That was a time you sit in your chair and watch your kids or grand kids swim. Not now, unless you want to look at a jungle and not being able to see the kids or the water. At one time, Gladstone had the nicest beach in the U.P. We had concerned people in city hall. It's too bad we don't have people in the city hall remembers that.
Get rid of the eyesore!
On Sept. 13, there were two city employees cutting brush by the water. Why? Could it be so people could see the water? This was at the end of Delta Avenue.
