"Even little poodles can be mean. It's all in how they raise them" The main difference being, I suppose, is the potential damage two big dogs running at large can do. I completely agree with Mrs. Grabowski, the dog owner bears full responsibility for this attack,...as should any large breed dog owner under the same circumstance. And there shouldn't be the same three strike standard used anytime a dog, or dogs, is off the owners property and attacks someone. Once is one time too many.

selket42 5 years, 6 months ago on Reina, ACLU file countersuit against city

I was under the apparently wrong impression, that the reason there was a spending limit in place for these kinds of elections, was to level the playing field....to keep somebody with deep pockets from over whelming other candidates with more ads...more posters...more little pins with their particular slogan..etc. So maybe Mr. Reina wasn't aware of the limit, and in his enthusiasm went a bit overboard...and Mr. Carwile messed up too....I doubt that either one would have been considered unable to perform the tasks of the position they were running for. Now we have yet again, another lawsuit, just to prove somebodys point.....how much is this going to cost us?

I don't quite understand why everyone is so down on TMH. Dr.Told knew for quite some time that he was leaving the area, and it would seem to me that part of the responsibility to his patients was to do a little more perhaps, to find a physician to take his place. 2500 people, more or less is quite chunk of our areas population for other clinics to try to absorb, when the other clinic doctors are booked by their own patients. The people of Craig need to try to figure out why it is so hard to get any qualified people to relocate to this wonderful area.

Well unless I am mistaken, the bear in the picture has already had at least one encounter with people somewhere....it appears to have been tagged. So somewhere in the bruins past it has been more than likely caught raiding trash cans and earned it "strike one". Hope it stays clear of trouble.

This guy apparently just proves the saying "15% of the population commits 85% of the crimes. He is stacking them up quicker than they can finish the paperwork on the previous.

Let's not forget the plentiful little cousins of the prairie dog, the smaller ground squirrels that are positively thick just south of Craig. I believe they are the Richardsons Ground Squirrel...I have had a few of them in my back yard apparently checking out the suitablilty of the area for a new town...thank goodness for my little terriers...they were discouraged to say the least.

Fencing prairie dogs? Just how deep do you think the fence would have to be? Ohhhhhh, you mean fence the livestock.....then explain to me how a fence would have stopped a rather large dog town from appearing in the middle of a well fenced lambing and calving area. The little buggers really can dig, and they dig deep too!

While prairie dog "shoots" don't seem to fit the code of the hunt, let's not forget that since we have gradually thinned out, or in some cases completely exterminated the prairie dogs natural predators, we have, in a backward kind of way, taken the role of the predator on ourselves. If left un-checked, prairie dogs will expand their dog towns to monsterous sizes, then the first time something like bubonic plague infects this area, and peoples dogs and cats begin being infected, or a builder sets his sights on an area for a subdivision, we will have a massive poisoning campaign to control the very thing the occasional "shoot" does quite well as it is. While the prairie dog is kinda cute, let's not forget that anything left uncontrolled will grow out of the areas ability to support it
