My Book Notes A Unfavorable Presense In The Sand

In chapter eight of my new book, Curtis on the News: The Unfinished Chronicles, 2008-2013 (Book One) I noted a concern of what a few, beach visitors would encounter. It was on the sandy surface of Robert Moses, New York State Park. If you see it in the photo provided this is dog feces. They may be few because many been ' voiceless', they been unable yet to resolve this public health problem with the cooperation of others. My apology that the photo is not appealing and unsuitable for tourism with the July 4th holiday forthcoming.
But seeing it near or under your colorful large-size, beach towel and portable, food container. Or that you or your child be stepping on it with your bare feet, getting it in between your toes is worse than viewing the photo here. Could you estimate the personal health risk? Health officials have been aware of it for decades communicating that feces on the beaches might contaminate water, especially after the tides or rainy weather. What could be corrective for this unwanting encounter?
The answer involves primary what some, pet owners are ignoring; the obvious signage at Robert Moses State Parks not to bring their pets to the beach. Unless you have a seeing problem, the signs are impossible to avoid at the boardwalk entries to the ocean shore. Uncaring owners knew of the rule and likely bring their canine friends early in the morning or during late hours at the park. When there are fewer lifeguards and park employees, present to turn them away.

What else was done is that I will message park officials of the concern and send them this photo. Beach workers come upon the dog feces more often than they wish, when picking up un-discarded glass bottles, broken beach chairs, sun umbrellas and trash the morning after. There are so many visitors in and out that park officials are not able to respond to every violation. In fact, Robert Moses Park reportingly have a shortage of park police in response to possible, criminal acts.
Again the obvious answer depends on the pet owners. Towards the public health and safety of others pet owners must comply, because the park officials, employees, and their fellow, beach visitors are depending on them. It is a disappointment, unfortunately, but they need to keep their collared and name-tagged buddies at home, or in the care of other, responsible people. Isn't a better option than of burying their dog's feces deep in the sand or paying a costly fine if the dog is caught in the act by beach authorities? Do you have any other suggestions?

The First Book of Curtis on the News Is Released

Curtis on the News: The Unfinished Chronicles, 2008-2013 (Book One) is finally released on Nook Press and Amazon Kindle this week. On Nook Press the book is 121 pages with a e pub file size of 16mg. Excluding the introduction and conclusion there are sixteen chapters based on the deleted blog site. It differs from 57 Pages in having no illustrations except a couple of photographs and one drawing. Please check out the preview on the book's product pages, read the introduction and first chapter.

The relationship of the two books is of the blog site, Curtis on the News. 57 Pages contains the cartoons from the news commentary site. This e book, Curtis on the News: The Unfinished Chronicles, 2008-2013 (Book One) have the writings of the blog posts without the cartoons. It is also a book series of three volumes. Because there were so many blog postings, over 1200, it was not possible to publish the blog articles with the cartoons. The e pub file would had been too large for most readers to download. It was on-going, diligent work for me. It taken over a year and half to produce the first book of this new series, laying the groundwork for the next, two volumes.
