FYI: The fate of Assateague may determined without any of us knowing. 1 of the options that the government is considering is completing shutting it down to all public forever. There is a "town meeting" being held at Ocean Pines Library tonight from 6-9 pm. The only way you would know about what is happening is if you may have happened to stop at the visitor center and have seen the small notice posted. Nothing has been in the paper about this whatsoever. It is detrimental that the masses attend this meeting.
