Tule Lake Committee seeks injunction to stop airport sale, H&N 8/23/18. KBC NOTE: The H&N editor again did not collect comments from the agricultural community, which consists primarily of WWI and WWII veteran homesteaders and their families who are dependant on the Tulelake Airport for crop needs, emergency services, and the many services of an airport. It services a 200x200 mile area (40,000 square miles). The activist Tule Lake Committee has continuously sued our town, county and Macy's Flying Service for many years petitioning against an airport security fence to save lives of pilots and passengers. Their stated goal is to acquire our airport, along with the 1400 acres already acquired to tell their story of being relocated here for 4 years after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. The city chose to sell the Tulelake Airport to the Modoc Tribe from Oklahoma because the tribe committed to keeping our airport as a functioning airport to service our communities. For more on the legal attacks on our community by this group for several years, and their ties with CAIR, go here:  Japanese vs Tulelake controversy
