Keep 'Em Flying At Cedar Creek

An Appeal To Maintain The Security Booth At Cedar Creek Park

The issue of park security is critical in all county parks and especially in those with major public works facilities such as Cedar Creek with its Sewerage treatment plant.

It is generally accepted that the plant could be a potential terrorist target. The following was received from a group of park users who are asking civic minded individuals and groups to join them at a legislative hearing on this issue, Monday, February 11th at 10:00 a.m. in the Legislative Chamber, 5th Floor, 1 West Street, Mineola. We strongly urge anyone who can to attend and lend your support.

"As stated today, our model flying group is in the fight ... dedicated and focused. The Cedar Creek Flight Field has been a place for us all to spend time; hundreds of flyers from around Nassau and the surrounding New York area.

We are visited by families in the area and have contributed generously to our community in the form of free flight lessons at the field, visiting local schools, and air shows for the entertainment of all the Nassau area.

Aside from attempting to save our own flight field and the Tether Raceway, the loss of the "MANNED SECURITY BOOTH" currently in place would represent a sure perception of a loss of security for the entire Seaford-Wantagh area.

An open park in the rear of the waste management plant would surely end up a haven for toxic and waste dumping, vandalism, drug use and the potential for other random acts that would otherwise be discouraged.

We would greatly appreciate anything you could do to help us "man" our legislative meeting this February 11 at 10:AM at 1 West Street, 5th Floor, Mineola, NY. It could make all the difference.

Any interested parties or inquiries should be E-Mailed to a gentleman by the name of Russ Rhine at:
