Letter To The Editor – Bob Jespersen

Typewriter with paper reading "Letters to the Editor"

I think it is important to not link the issue of noisy dogs and airplane noise.  The Deer Park Airport is an amazing asset to our community! Fabulous air shops, several airplanes related businesses, a terrific base for firefighting aircraft, and more.  The Airport has really put Deer Park on the map for many years!

Anyone moving into an area should do the in depth research to learn what will impact their home and life. The Airport has a very long, positive history in the area and needs to be celebrated. Airplanes make noise. That comes with the territory. A person doesn’t build next to a dairy and then demand that the dairy stop smelling like a dairy. A person doesn’t build next to a railroad and the expect that the trains will be quiet. A person doesn’t build next to an elementary school and expect that the children will not be making noise during recess periods. The list goes on! 

Complaining will no doubt fill some need.  But please admit that you did not do your homework to find out about the Airport and its operation.

I am very glad that the Airport is there and doing well!

Dog barking is an issue that does not related to the airport. Address it separately.

Crawford – A Name, A Road, A Roundabout

When the name Crawford is used in Deer Park, it is understood to be Crawford Street, the primary east-west road in the city. Long before Crawford became known as a street, a man named George E. Crawford was known over a century ago as a local lumber entrepreneur. His family helped build the town’s foundations and the oldest, still operating, church in Deer Park. Soon, a roundabout will also carry this name on.
