• :..~blurne 15, No. 5 SERVING THE PEOPL£ OF CABIN JOHN AND BEYOND May 1981 III Big Air Victory For Cabin John By D~ Cos~no After many years of protesting jet noises, th citizens of Cabin John finally scored with the Washington~Council of Governments (COG). On May 3 the COG v~ed for a several month long test of th Coalition on Airport Problems (CAP) Scatter Plan. The testis slated to begin this Fall. The approval of this test gives recognition to the fact that Cabin John has for years borne the brun- of Washington’s jet noise. Any permanent changes will be made after the test. Cabin John should accept any and all equitable changes, but we must continue to fight to make sure that all the noise is never again put back over Cabin John. The Co-chairmen of the Jet Noise Committee (Frank Sordyl and Dan Costello) express their appreciation to all those who helped to achieve this important victory at the COG. Special thanks should go to Eric Bernthal, the President of CAP; to Erich and Klara Buchmann who helped over the years; and to our President, Alan van Emeriek. With continuing support and help from all the citizens, we shall one day achieve final victory –a permanent scatter plan which spreads noise =s equitably as possible.

Resident Man Bites Dog To the Editor: This letter refers to Judy Duffield’s article in l~st month’s News about the growing number of dogs at large in Cabin John. I am a dog owner and I am perfectly aware of the fact that there is a Montgomery County leash law. Nevertheless, I must point out that it is very difficult for a dog to be kept in confinement (in the house, yard, or on a leash ) all .day long! ;chis ,waY the p~iO5~em ‘ ~.:+”‘~+;”!:’~ . . , , +,,! /,,~ .’.,~-.:. ~ “,,~’ :.~ This will result in the would be no more., ‘;~ !dog becoming all the Chris toph +Syllaba~i~+~ ;I +!i more vicious, creating an even greater problem. Animals need freedom! It is an equal strain on the owner to have to walk the dog several times a day. After all, there are not that many victims of dog attacks and most of these attacks come about because the dog has been harassed or otherwise disturbed prior to the incident. I would also ~ike to point out that dogs are very helpful in protectinq not only the “master’s” house but the entire neighborhood from burglaries and other crimes! As for those people who have been harassed or bitten by a dog, there is a way of solving the problem~ Calling the dog pound will not help the situation! It will only anger or create problems for the owner. Why not go over to” the owner’s house and meet with him and his dog? Get to know and be friendly with the dog!
