This article makes me very sad. I think if the bear hadn't been bothering anything or anyone they should have anesthetized him and relocated him. I don't understand why everyone is freaking out about this incident. We live in a rural town and should be expected to properly handle this kind of a situation. I think the ineffective tranquilizer is a b.s excuse for some trigger friendly individual. I would really be more concerned for the kids with other humans around rather than a bear. There are some crazy people in this world and I think a bear coming down is the least of our problems. Humans used to be part of ecosystems but with the development of technology and the explosion of our population we are now detrimental. We do move into and destroy habitat not just for large species like bears but for everything. There needs to more of a mutual respect because no matter how superior we think we are nature still has a way of putting everything in its place.
I find fault with this editorial for a few reasons. The first problem I have is your use of Plan B as the abortion pill. I would like to clarify that before you post an article about contraceptives/abortion you do your homework first. Plan B and the "abortion pill" are completely different things. The abortion pill is mifepristone whereas Plan B is not even in the realm of abortion. Plan B should not be used (or considered) as a consistent form of birth control only when the primary form fails. Contrary to popular belief Plan B does not end an already started pregnancy. It prevents an egg from being released therefore avoiding pregnancy. If an egg is released it slows the progression of the egg not allowing sperm to fertilize it. You are mistaken sir. The second problem I have with this article is the idea of forcing health care. Being able to offer people (Christian or not) an option FOR WOMEN is something that should not be such a negative thing. If people don't want that part of health care then it is their choice whether to buy it or not. Obviously people have a lot of pre-conceived ideas about what birth control truly does. The Pill doesn't kill embryos or whatever else you may think it does. If you are against the pill at least use condoms. I don't understand why this is such a hard concept especially in Craig. Has anybody not noticed the staggering teen pregnancy rate in the high school? Pills are cheap and you can get condoms virtually anywhere. Christian or not abstinence is ineffective and parents need to be responsible about educating their children. Kids shouldn't be scared talking to their parents about being responsible and safe. Abortion is not so black and white anyway. What would you consider a woman who gets pregnant and has the embryo develop in the fallopian tube (Ectopic)? This happened to me and as the embryo grew it caused me to bleed internally. If I had not gone to the hospital the fetus would have ruptured my tube and killed both of us. I had to not only have the embryo surgically removed but I also lost a fallopian tube. I am not writing this for pity but to challenge the black and white beliefs. Where do I fall into what category? I can guarantee almost everybody in your church has had pre-marital sex or used contraceptives.
It is funny that the church is so against taking a life when historically you trace can almost any major conflict back to religious reasons (i.e crusades, inquisition or WW2). It is always so ironic to have to read about a male preaching against abortion. Get educated before you preach about something you obviously have no knowledge.
This argument is so ridiculous! Obama hasn't been the best president but comparing him to Osama is a bit extreme. If you are still stuck on the ignorant citizenship argument then there is no hope for you anyway. I myself voted for Obama but admitting my mistake I agree he hasn't done much to improve our economic state. In case you forgot, the so-called "politicians" that we put in power have failed us all. It is not one man that failed us but them all. They have all become corrupt by large corporations. It is like buying legislation now. It is sad that people are just now starting to figure it out. We need a revolution and a better system. I am just sick of hearing all these pointless arguments about communism and all these stupid bantering. This country isn't even truly democratic anyway and if proper health care actually did exist then maybe people wouldn't be so inclined to offer a counter-solution. It's not one party versus another and anyone who says otherwise obviously didn't hear about the bill that was voted 93-7 in favor of essentially nullifying our constitutional rights. It is not JUST the president. Blame should be handed around everywhere that it is due and that is our entire government. People need a revolution before it is too late. As far as the upcoming elections, none of the candidates are worth any second look and shouldn't be voted for at all. It not the democrats or the just the repubs! They are both corrupt!!
I think the point is being missed. The DOW is not implementing this legislation to harass hunters. They recognize hunting as an important tool in wildlife management but there are certain standards in place to prevent unethical practices. Shooting a hibernating bear is unethical and that was obvious by the community's disgust with the previous article. It really cannot be argued that it was not hunting. Just like hunting seasons are put in place according to reproductive time tables, migrations and other factors hunting a hibernating bear can have negative repercussions. The DOW is not letting people hunt bears, they're just trying to equal the playing field to allow the animal to have a chance.
Well well well and here we stand.... Typical ignorance getting the best of us like usual.. I hate to bother your Rush Limbaugh rant but in reality there are more pressing matters to address than whether our president is a citizen or not. If you are still on that bandwagon I feel sorry for you. I get a kick out of how people are so quick to forget everything that Bush and Mr. Cheney did. If you have any sort of intelligence do some homework and read up on the previous administrations performance. You want to impeach a president because you think he isn't a citizen yet you somehow condone all the torturing that went on under the Bush administration? Which might I add was a clear human rights violation and well as violating the constitution. Or what about illegally wiretapping his own citizens? How can you dismiss such things in favor of taking aim at a black president? Believe it or not black people do exist outside of Craig. If you know anything about environmental policy you would also read about all the former policies that were repealed by Bush in favor of destroying pristine wilderness areas because his VP was a former CEO of Halliburton? You people truly make me sick. I am so fed up with all the stupid bantering that is going on and yet nobody realizes we are destroying ourselves and the places in which we live.. We allow politicians to make skewed decisions which will screw you over and yet it is ok. I am neither for or against the president. I think our government is corrupt, catering to who has the fattest wallet. Grow up and take a look around and see everything is self destructing and then continue to be ignorant.
Our children are our future and by cutting them short we are crippling ourselves. I say fight the power! Fight for our children! We need to stand up for the most important thing and that is education. People need to stop being apathetic and stand up against the big government we all hate. The people in Wisconsin are fighting for what they believe in and so should we. I hate allowing the government full reign when we all hate it!
I agree with onewhocares. Yes Columbine was a sad and tragic event but we cannot live our lives in fear. When I was a student at MCHS I saw it everywhere. The staff would watch the kids at lunch like hawks and there always seemed like there was this tense attitude, almost in the sense they were expecting someone to screw up. It has gotten worse the past few years. Security is great and important but to the extent this school has taken it is way too far. If someone wants to inflict harm on people a few doors and a new hallway is not going to deter them. Lets be realistic here.
I just wanted to say thanks for selling the county out for personal gain. How much are they paying you all? I hope it is worth it when the county's water is not longer drinkable and the land has been stripped of any value. Geokinetics might not be the oil company but they're paving the way for them. Doing the sneaky work.... I thought there was some good in the world and then I woke up to a reality where greed runs everything and people throw each other under the bus. Bravo bravo
