In response to “Barking Dogs and Circling Planes” letters:
We moved to Deer Park in 2014. We knew from the time of the land purchase that we were near an airport and would have low flying planes over our house. They are no bother to us at all, regardless of the type of plane or the time of the flights.
I have loved airplanes and aviation from a very early age. When my grandson was little and visiting we would go outside to watch the planes fly over. I had shown him pictures of various planes, some from WW II. His favorite phrase (at 3 years old) was “I think it’s a Spitfire!!”
After reading your January issue article about Barking Dogs and Circling planes, I wonder if the couple did any research before moving here.
The airport has been in existence since 1944 and will continue to grow. Why would anyone move near an airport and then complain about the airplane activity? The pilot training does include flight patterns that are not in a straight line. As our city grows, so will the airport activity. The history of the airport is very interesting – guess why we have a road named Missile Site Road.
In response to “Of Barking Dogs and Circling planes” article in your December 2020 issue, my husband and I can sympathize with William S.
Would you park your vehicle 12” alongside another? Would you allow the door to close in front of a person in a wheelchair? Would you blare your music from your house late at night when you know your neighbor is trying to sleep? The obvious answer to these questions is NO!
It’s raining and cold outside today in May and the last several months have been just as dreary, but I’ve been thankful to live in Deer Park where the silver linings have never been brighter. Churches, businesses, and neighbors have worked together to make a difference and I wanted to write a thank-you note to them all while celebrating our great small town.
Very glad to see great information about how to use a Roundabout in the April Deer Park Gazette. I would, however, like to add one detail that I think is very important…The use of ones “Right Turn Blinker” to indicate that one is exiting the Roundabout.
As some of you may know, the Deer Park Gazette is a family-owned newspaper. Ellie Chambers, our editor, is my sister. While preparing the January issue, our mother, Joan Schut, passed away. As a result of this loss, we needed to take a short break to remember her and regroup as we prepare for our future without her.
