Riverhead officials have gone to court to force Suffolk County to move a trailer for sexoffenders from its current location behind a fence at the Riverhead County Jail, charging that thehousing is illegal because it is less than 1,000 feet from a town park.  But, county officialssay, the park is not really a park at all, just a bit of open space along the Peconic River withtwo benches and a garbage can and they add, the trailer for the homeless men was there first.
