I'd love to buy a house and very soon will be in the market to afford one. However, home prices in this town are WAY over the top compared to some other places we have looked at. Lower the home prices to match the rest of the country and you might sell some.
Seriously Daily press, isn't there any way to filter the spam that appears on this board? It's obvious this "person" did not even read the article, therefore I am flagging it for removal.
This is a great idea for an event to teach our younger ones, and even us old ones, to wear helmets for all activities involving wheels(bikes, blades, boards, scooters, motorized anything). No matter how goofy one may look or how much guff they receive from the non-wearers, it can save you from a nasty fall.
In addition and not to detract from the article, I have observed many of our new-found street screaming ATV users not wearing helmets, what gives? I thought that was supposed to be part of gaining this "right"?
Helmets save lives, period.
Well said Als365.
Strange that we have a large herd of them living 200 yards down the road from us and I have yet to see one in my yard eating my shrubbery or flowers. Plant a delicacy, expect it to get eaten.
In my opinion, the best solution may be:
1. Don't feed them...at all, starving or not nature will play out for them.
2. Keep your pesky pets from disturbing them and they may not get hurt. No offense but poodles are pesky little creatures and I can totally see a deer getting annoyed by one.
3. DO NOT approach one to "chase it off", dumb move and you deserve what you get. Leave them alone.
4. Hefty fines for those supporting the local herd. No food for them, no deer to worry about.
5. Plant deer resistant shrubs and plants...again, no food, no deer.
It's really pretty simple if you think about it.
I just don't understand why people in Craig won't leave this subject alone. I have spoken with residents of Meeker, Steamboat, Hayden and other communities where I know somebody and they all accept having deer in the yard as part of living in Colorado. Nobody has been killed or gored(maybe because they are not foolish enough to approach one or they don't own a pesky pet)in any of those towns, therefore our problem is not unique or special in any way...it is a part of rural life. There are many countermeasures to keep deer from eating plants and being on your property, I suggest you try some. Accept the reality or move where they do not exist...problem solved.
I am somewhat confused on this one as well. Anyone with a phone line has internet access. If you can manage to afford satellite TV, you have internet access. The article mentions community, like in town, which makes one believe that the problem is not only in the county but in the city as well. What are we so far behind in? What else is there that we don't have access to?
I have no trouble using Quest DSL which is instantaneous as far as web surfing and purchasing, so I am not sure I understand the problem and the need for a committee to solve it.
What am I missing here?
bigrred1576 & als362,
Hospital Loop Road was paved before construction began if I recall, so it would've been dug up before connecting with something on the other side of the street. I use the south entrance on the loop and there is asphalt patching across the span of the street where the drainage work crosses. Als326, I agree...chip sealing and protecting it now would be the wise way to go.
Something I don't get though...Steele street from Victory Way to Industrial Avenue(in the middle of town) has not been paved since the inception of Craig...yet we chip seal the same streets over and over every year, why?
I realize streets and gutter-work can be pricey, but how much do we pay for them to squirt oil on the street, throw down some gravel, sweep it up and get rid of it? Every year?
My guess would be a couple years worth of chip sealing. Same goes for the mag chloride sprayed on the county roads, stop that nonsense and throw in a couple years worth of chip seal cost and there you go, a proper street for the residents that deserve one.
Anyway, please be aware that one entrance will be closed each day of chip sealing, your route to the hospital may be slightly altered from what you had planned. If one entrance is closed, simply use the other, you will still get there.
And as always, open 24/7/365, chip sealing or not.
Asking for the deer to go away is just as dumb as asking that we get rid of bees because they sting people. Let's be real here, we live in rural America and at one time we were known as the elk capital of the world, you don't get that designation when you don't have any deer or elk around. onewhocares had it right, and with all due respect, if you don't like wildlife in your yard, move to the big city where they don't have that problem. I don't like them either, but what are you going to do about it? Hunting them is out as that ignorant solution has been brought up before, the last thing we need is people shooting guns, or arrows, within the city limits.
So, lets hear some solutions, other than firing weapons within city limits, that would control this problem.
Way to go girls, we are all proud of you. A big round of applause for all the 9-11 year old's, everyone did well and showed marked improvement over the course of the season.
Nice post Rebelgirl, hit the nail square on. I'd be happy to drive it home but I have better things to accomplish than to argue with a poster that gets their "facts" from the Good ol' boy table at the Cavvy(no offense whatsoever to the Cavvy, just a quote regarding the rumor mill within).
Wake up justthefiction, you don't know your columns of Morgagni from a hole in the ground.
And THAT is a fact!!!
The man in the portrait is Dr. Ray Whitham, longtime area physician and Dr. Told's mentor. I don't know what the communt under the picture of Dr. Told is trying to get across.
