I certainly can understand your position. I just read that Nicaragua lost two significant job and income producing opportunities in the production of ethanol. Huge loss of jobs and income to your people. One went to El Salvadore and the other to Honduras. Ortega turned them down staying with his commitment to Papa Chavez. Nothing like progress in Nicaragua.

150 million went to El Salvador along with 20,000 jobs.
and Ortega's idiotic argument was that "land should be used for food production not ethanol.
Ortega is Chavez' biatch!

My heart felt sentiments to you and your people. Ortega ran for "helping the poor and underpriveleged in Nicaragua". His turning away huge income opportunities and jobs such as the ethanol projects for the Nicaraguan people makes me very suspicious on his intentions now and in the future.

I certainly understand how you feel. I feel the same way even living and surfing in California. Many good breaks are closed to the people and surfers because of private property ownership. We share the same problem. However, there is a solution for you in the future. Here in Calif. much of our coastline and beaches are managed and run by the State Goverment. Believe it or not, they do a great job in providing the citizens and visitors of California clean and safe beaches. Malibu State Beach, Huntington State Beach, San Diego State Beach are all managed by the State of Calfornia.

The state run beaches are paid for by the tax payers. Lifeguards, restrooms, parking facilities, etc are all paid of by these taxes. The demand for quality beaches, here speaks for itself. Last time I was in Nic, I noticed there was not alot of demand for the beaches, ie; not alot of cars and people flocking to the beaches in lines to get to the beach. But, as Nic grows and becomes prosperous, there will obviously be demand. So, you might want to ask Mr. Ortega to start looking for beaches that will provide for public use and access, municipal beaches, similar to California. This way, everyone will be happy..the property owners, the residents and tourists of Nicaragua. Your governent needs to start planning and taking action for the futrue of public beaches.
