Goose poop is not ‘welcome’ on the DL beach

The front page photo caption on the Aug. 14 Tribune declared “Swimmers enjoy the Detroit Lakes City Beach, which today seems clear of the flowering rush that once infested the shores.”

Yes, but, note the beach in the foreground. Water fowl feces are very uninviting to visitors with small children who wish to play in the sand.

We had visitors. Took them into the city with a promise of a “nice sandy beach.” Yuk. A welcome to the beach? No. — DH Anderson, Ogema
