GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - This picture sent to us from a WLOX viewer caught our eye. An image of a three-year-old girl looking at what has become of the beach that she visits.

Her mother said she took her child to the beach by Courthouse Road in Gulfport because, " I wanted to see the oil patties for myself."

This image portrays the question on many South Mississippi minds, just what will the beach look like when this child and the other children of South Mississippi are grown up?
