Gaining Momentum

My quest to be sponsored at Texas Sandfest by the businesses and individuals of South Padre Island has been helped along by my friend Will's post at

This site is self-explanatory.

The PR opportunity for SPI is obvious. Additionally, please know Chapter 351 of the Texas Tax Code makes clear that the Town itself could legitimately sponsor and underwrite such an activity from hotel/motel occupancy tax. I have absolutely no doubt about this permissibility, and in my judgment, it absolutely should do so. Such little community investment for so large a probable return.

Regardless, if those of us who read this forum really want to make SPI special, we should not ignore our local but nationally-recognized talent, but instead support it, especially when it is so clearly beach and Island-related.

Want to do something positive? Do this. What a shame if we do not.
