Sanders Beach Is Ours, Baybee

Public wins access to CdA beach: Judge sets the ordinary high water mark for Sanders Beach at 2,130 feet/Susan Drumheller, Spokesman-Review.

DFO Mini-Edit: East Lakeshore Drive home owners have only themselves to blame for the court decision that cost them any right to Sanders Beach. For years, they maintained that the beach was theirs, which few debated, but they went too far when a new generation of property owners began kicking locals of the beach they’d used for more than a century. Rather than strike a deal with the city that would have continued beach access for the public, the home owners fought tooth and nail for their “rights” to block off Sanders Beach. Now, we discover, that the home owners were the ones squatting on public property. They deserve to get nothing out of this but lawyers’ bills.
