"Everybody knows that Carolina is the better team." You "explain" things so well,Mark. Oddsmakers are not stupid,but they are often wrong. Carolina could play the Broncos defense ten more times and perhaps lose eight of them.

Blam! Might be in agreement with you on this one,Mark. (Don't have a gun,though.) I don't like my privacy compromised either.

Lots of glib answers,but no real substance. There is no disputing that man has dominion over the animals;that was never an issue here,except in your mind,Mark. Only a question of degree. I imagine that you regularly patrol around your property in North Routt to make sure that those dangerous critters don't get the better of you. They know who's boss! (What did you have in mind for making the mountain lions more comfortable?) Your notion of bludgeon them into submission is probably not the best way to manage wildlife,but I'm sure that I'll never convince you of that.

A woman who stood up for what she believed;the protection of an incredibly beautiful valley from radical changes that she did not see as being in the best interests of the community. She will always be one of my heroes. Rest in peace,Elaine.

Short of an all-out attempt to eradicate all mountain lions and bears "in close proximity" to our community,we will just have to "allow then to become comfortable." Truthfully,I doubt mountain lions ever feel "comfortable" in close proximity to humans,and I also doubt that we could successfully get rid of them,even if we tried. They have found a way to be in this area for many,many years,and likely will continue to do so,regardless of what we do to change that.

To Allen Hischke, What exactly are you proposing? Should we seek to set up a hunt within the Steamboat city limits for any potentially dangerous animals? What about the areas near the city limits,such as Emerald Mountain? Should we seek to eradicate all mountain lions from the area because they are a potential threat to humans and their pets? What about bears in the same areas? Rattlesnakes? Racoons? All potentially dangerous creatures? The animal that caused the problem was hunted down and killed,but apparently that is not good enough for you. I'm not sure what else to call your reaction but "knee-jerk". Fred certainly deserves better.

That is the sort of answer I should have expected from you,Mark. Do you have any answers to any of my other questions?
