Just a few years ago, Galveston city and county officials didn't think about the nesting season of the Kemp's ridley sea turtle as spring approached the island. But things have changed. For the last two or three years, permission has been given for signs to be put on public beaches advising tourists and residents to call 1-866-TURTLE-5 if a sea turtle, tracks or hatchlings are seen.
An article in the March 29 issue of the Houston Chronicle points out further proof that people in high places are concerned with the sea turtles. Last June, workers started to build a ramp to the beach for anyone in a wheelchair. Before it was completed the ramp was torn up by Hurricane Ike. Workers began again to build the ramp for this tourist season. I was very pleased to read that "They also erected fences to protect Kemp's ridley sea turtles from wandering onto the construction site."
Thank you to everyone in Galveston who care about the endangered sea turtles that have returned at last.

Most people have no choice about paying their tax through Pay As You Earn and it is a welcome development that those who evade tax are seen to face the consequences.

If you do not feel comfortable taking on the tasks of managing production of your book — for example, hiring and supervising an editor, designer, indexer, printer, etc. — consider using a book packager or consultant insurancepolicyhere.com
