It really bothers me that everyone there sits back and watches while the ocean is being polluted further. While the tide is low someone should be responsible for the removal of those homes before the tide takes them and everything in them into the ocean. The ocean is not a dumping ground. We should all be more diligent in keeping it clean!This earth belongs to ALL of us!

This is utterly ridiculous!! For more than 20 years home owners have been asking for help in saving their homes. The government researched, people discussed, met, money was raised (S.O.S.- save our shores)the Army Corps of Engineers researched and still homes are falling into the ocean. When will the government decide to take action- please this is just too ridiculous to believe- not to mention the disgusting pollution this causes to the ocean in that area. The last time this happened it was years later and we were still fishing refrigerator parts out of the waters. Pretend it is Kennebunk and President Bush's home- then action would take place. Or are you just waiting until the rest of the area is washed away. What will it take??
