    Demolition work began this week on Kings Beach Hotel.  Whereas we are glad to finally see the back of what had become a major eyesore in Road View/Mullins over the last several years, it also is the end of affordable hotels in the area.   No idea yet what will replace it but look for something more in line with what's already built next door - a monstrosity where rack rates are high, tourists are few, the beaches are empty, and employment is scarce.
