I'm recommending readers look up the opinion column, "We Need To Retreat From The Beach," by Orrin H. Pilkey, that appeared in the Nov. 15 New York Times. It is available online at tinyurl.com/Orrin-Pilkey.

Not only is the article thought provoking and worth the read, Pilkey is a Tri-City native. He graduated from Richland High School in 1952 and is now a emeritus professor of earth sciences at Duke University. His book, The Rising Sea, is a definitive look at the future and of coast lines around the world.

Go Bombers!
