Letter: Take a break from North Star

Regarding the most recent brouhaha at North Star Nature Preserve with the 67-person tubing party: Really? This has gotten way out of hand. I agree with the gentleman who proposed a five-year break for the area to be what nature intended it to be! No tubing, floating, sunbathing, dogs, whatever. It was fun for a while, but this party needs to end. I can already hear a giant sigh of relief from all the beautiful nesting birds and wildlife for getting their home back. Everyone please consider it?
