DENISE GEE, San Clemente

Let me get this straight.  Over several years, the city of San Clemente has paid for sand to replenish what the ocean has taken. 

It appears that the projects have cost the city exorbitant amounts of money. Now I am reading that the city filled the Ralphs Skate Court with sand. 

Where did that sand come from?  How is the city planning to remove it? 

I don’t have a better solution in order to prohibit the park from being used during this pandemic. 

However, unless this sand fell from the sky, we took it from the beaches and dumped it in a skateboard park. Beach sand or no beach sand; that is the question. 

We can’t have it both ways.
