Re: “Geared up for a fight

Actually the FS is catering to the laws of the land. I don't know anybody who does not like mountain bikes. Maybe there's some horses startled on the trail by silent oncoming mountain bikes that don't like them. It's not that biking is bad; it's just that mountain bikes are not appropriate everywhere.
What's at stake are our few remaining unprotected wildlands, and they aint makin any more of em. Meanwhile there are a great many places to ride bikes.
It appears that every type of recreation has people who will not forego demanding a piece of the wildland pie for their personal use. The planet is already nearly totally overwhelmed by the I, I, me, me, mine mentality. Multiply and subdue the earth is making great headway. Maybe a bit of humility and generosity of spirit will catch on in time to allow wild nature to survive the wreck-creation onslaught. Or maybe not...

Re: “Rattlesnake

They never give up. Forest service timber beasts are always up to no good, and must be be kept under constant surveillance. And once a timber sale has been proposed, it never dies. Timber sales and Corpse [sic] of Engineers damns [sic] are like snakes : Just when you think they're dead, they start twitching again.

Although just saying thanks seems inadequate, THANK YOU for protecting our civil liberties and for guiding the ACLU so effectively in Montana. ~Kathleen

Re: “Making room

Thank you Scott! Like the line in your song "the heart of the apoloosa never died", your heart felt compassion will be with you even after ACLU. It is a lifetime achievement award that you can take with you wherever you go. Great work!

Re: “Wyoming coyote trapper defends graphic photos

Yes the subject we are dealing with here is that no living being deserves to be tortured,mutilated or forced to die a slow agonizing death.So predator control is deemed necessary, handle it in a humane fashion. When a person enjoys watching a living creature tortured and then die very slowly that constitutes psychotic behavior which makes that person a threat to the public and household pets. Maybe a psychological screening should be conducted before a trapping license can be issued.

Re: “A quick DamNation screening preview with two of tonight's panelists

5-10 years for the estimated dam removal timeline? I think Hawley needs to take a look at the Klamath Dam situation. There is an actual agreement to remove those dams signed in 2010 and folks have been waiting for Congressional authority and appropriations ever since. With zero movement on AGREED dam removal, Hawley is being overly optimistic here. Especially since the Snake River dams are not outdated or antiquated, have strong fish passage/survival, and are highly depended on for firm power in the NW.

I keep hearing about this new science showing Orca decline is directly related specifically to Snake River salmon, but no one ever cites it. Where is this science? How can a person take a look at the study? Seems extremely far-fetched that such a small group of salmon from the Snake River could have such a big impact on whales that feed off of salmon coming from the entire west coast.

Re: “Drag racing

The modern speed hump, as described in the Institute of Transportation Engineers recommended practice document, is the most effective physical control for speeding. Offset speed tables, or the more common speed cushion, are versions friendlier to emergency response needs where the problem speeds exist on those primary ER routes.

I love Le Petit! During my college years, I would pick up a fresh loaf of New York rye and savor it all week. It's one of my fondest memories of college!

Re: “Imagine Nation gets real

If you are tired of IPAs, consider moving back east and out of the newest, and best, Beer Belt of the USA. These brewers are focusing their energy on improving the community, an admirable and selfless effort. We should all take their lead. Their beer is delicious, and the quality of any brewery should outweigh the type of beer brewed. I can vouch for their product.

Re: “Wyoming coyote trapper defends graphic photos

Coyotes aren't moving into our habitats and out of theirs because we're encroaching on their natural range. They're multiplying at rates that allow for natural movement over larger ranges. Within the last 3 years I now must deal with them coming into my yard and that quite frankly, will not be tolerated. Most states allow for continuous hunting 24/7, and I'm behind this legal harvesting 100%. I continue to partake in this activity as I have most of my life. You have the right to debate me, but if I want your opinion on this subject, then I will give it to you. I would suggest you simply stay away from this site.

Re: “Seeking council

With a couple of exceptions this council pretty much rubber stamps the mayors agenda. It would be nice to see some opposing views but not likely to happen if this council is going to pick the replacement.
