Hardy L&HH Louise and Henry Hoffman AKM Arlie McKay BM Bill McClure Clearing House Notes: Cinnamon Teal: "The first 3 times 2 other teals with blue wings were • it, the last time only one. On the 24th I found a dead and crippled Canvasback. The ducks were much more shy. I flushed 2 teal with blue wings and supposed the drake had been shot. Then I flushed a drake and another teal both blue-winged; then I flushed the pair of Cinnamon Teal. I suspect they were a pair, and there had been only two." SAVE BEAR CREEK FOR PARKS! an article appearing in the Houston Chronicle December 15, 1968 "The lure of cheap leased land has stimulated another commercial proposal for the Bear Creek Park area. The new promotion is a 154-acre amusement park. The promoters should not be permitted to use public land for private profit. Recently another private-use proposal for this land—a spread of about 26,000 acres in the Addicks area— was finally rejected by the Corps of Engineers which holds the acreage for flood control purposes. The first promotion was an Indianapolis-style speedway. There is nothing bad about building a speedway but there was no reason to build it on public land. The same applies to the amusement park. In both of these cases the Harris County Commissioners have endorsed the proposals. We do not understand why they are so willing to lease the land which should be developed as a county park. It would hardly be fair to blame the promoters for their efforts. It would be much cheaper for them to lease the land than to buy a site. But no promoter should get this benefit which would have the adverse result of tying up land that can be developed for park use. ... In not too many years the city will surround Bear Creek Park. It would be indefensible to split off large chunks of that land for non-park use. It appears that attempts to do just that will continue to crop up unless the county, or the city and county together, devise a master plan for development of the land. It is not too early to draft such a plan, and if these guidelines were established, some of these commercial promotions would never get off the ground. This acreage is a major asset which can become an immensely important part of the Houston environment and image with sensible development. A Coney-Island approach may reap some immediate profits for private investors, but the public would lose a recreation and park area which could not be matched by any other major city in the nation." - - The Editors thought that the Chronicle expressed the sentiments of the members of the Outdoor Hature Club much better than we could. When are the County Commissioners going to stop their GIVE AWAY plans in regard to this area and cooperate in attempting to maintain it as a park?? We can let them know our feelings by writing to them, the Corps of Engineers, the city of Houston officials, etc.
