Is Palwaukee Airport Expansion a concern of yours? Does the noise or safety of the airport cause you concern? We are looking for volunteers to help us pass a petition asking for two referendums to be placed on the ballot in the November 1998 Election. One deals with the size of the planes using Palwaukee and the other deals with closing the airport when the tower is not manned. If you are a registered voter in Wheeling, and can help us gather signatures in your neighborhood, please notify Laurel Anderson, 537-2593 or Mike at the CASE Hotline (312) 409-9305. We appreciate your help. Let's work together and we can make a difference!
