Keep the 737s away and leave our dwindling paradise alone

I read the Feb. 4 Reporter's Notebook item, "Planning for the jackpot," and Jim Bernard's (our airport manager/Eureka TV station weatherman) mention of an enlarged jet ramp capable of handling 737s to cater to the casino.

Do we really want large jets coming here for mere monetary benefits for a few, in addition to spooking the Aleutian geese and other wildlife that take refuge around the airport?

I just wish Mr. Bernard would stay in his own neck of the woods (Eureka) and leave our dwindling paradise alone.
