Letters: Concerned about Chick-fil-A sodium levels more than politics

Chick-fil-A touches off cultural battle | July 27

Sodium content is more alarming

Rather than being concerned about the politics and religious beliefs of the president of the Chick-fil-A chain, we should worry about the 1,400 milligrams of sodium in a Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich.

Beach loss heavy

There's give and take in nature

As an owner of a timeshare at Casa Del Mar on Eagle Beach in Aruba, I know the beaches there come and go by themselves with no effort made by humans to try to stop or replace lost sand. Nature does it for them. It takes as little as one to two years to remove and replace sand lost to the tide. I have two pictures to illustrate this condition. One was taken in June of 2010 (lost sand) and the other in June 2012 (restored sand).

While the angles of the pictures are not precisely the same, I believe they show what has occurred. This happened with no involvement of the timeshare association or the government. They say to do so is useless.

I find it interesting that while this occurs naturally, it is not mentioned in your article; although it is alluded to at Belleair Shore beach where the shore grew 10 feet. In short, if given enough time, nature will replace what it took away.

Robert E. Lloyd, Port Richey
