On March 22 The Day showed a picture on the front page of the waterfront and suggested that it would be a great place for the Coast Guard Museum. On March 19 I heard a lecture at StoneRidge titled, "Will Mystic be underwater in 15 years?" This lecture was given by Zell Steever who has worked for more than 30 years on environmental and water source issues. His point was that with climate change we may see a rise in the sea level over the next 15 or 30 years. That would put the museum in danger of flooding and isolation.

The city and Coast Guard should consider this possibility before putting the museum in this place.

Increased treatment is good; we should give kids all the help they need to thrive without judging them or their parents.
