I hope James Simmons prevails in his effort to expand the dock and marina rental space on Shem Creek.

Shem Creek has such a rich history in the local shrimping industry, it would be sad to see it go away.

The neighbors bought their houses knowing the Magwoods were there running their business.

I have purchased shrimp there on many occasions. It is great to be able to pick up shrimp right from the boat. It doesn’t get much fresher.

It is a good location, and I hope it works out for everybody. If Mr. Simmons has the proper permits and builds it properly, he should be left to run his business.
