Does anybody know what happened to the proposed oyster growing facility that was planned for Weems at the end of the road? There were several permits posted, but they now have turned to mush and blown away it has been so long ago.

And a better question - will anybody ever see this post? I get the feeling this place echos it is so empty around here.

Well, that sounds about right. It is a shame, though, as we could use any local industry, even as few jobs as this might have provided.
