As a resident of the airport neighborhood and daily trail user, I am protesting closure of the trail dike trail that allows access to the Mendenhall Wetlands Wildlife Refuge. The reason stated for closure, airport security, is totally ridiculous. Those of us who use the trail regularly are the best and cheapest airport security available. Frankly, I'm more in favor of closing the airport than closing this trail.
