Niagara Gazette — As director of the sprawling regional parks system, Thomas is concerned about the acts of terror that erupt.
"All Americans are bothered by the situation we're in right now," Thomas said. "The world has changed. We all need to be more vigilant. The safety and security of ourselves, our families, and our park visitors has to be up to each of us. When anything looks suspicious, people need to tell our police officers about it. We as citizens are part of a safety net of our own freedom."
