To be “safe and secure” in Glynn County

To be safe and secure in Glynn County all you’ve got to do is heed the warning signs. Now, in addition to being informed that the fish are not fit to eat we are warned that the ocean is unsafe at high tide. But the reference to life guards is misleading. Only midday on Saturday and Sunday are they to be found, “weather permitting.” Not to mention that an “acceptable” bacteria level is not reassuring.

But then, Glynn County is a place where beaches are to be “nourished” and people are to be policed.

Is there a risk that her people will be worse off if fewer visit Glynn? Not really. When 40% of the children live in dire poverty and the state ranks 40th when it comes to children’s health, the bottom is not far off.
