On Jobs, dreams, big plans: Blackhawk students graduate
Congrats to all of them, especially the adults. In this 'economy' no matter the outcome, it takes something to go back to school and better yourself in the hopes of a better future, even if the jobs and economy are not as fruitful as it had been in the past.
On Massive oak will be casualty of 'progress' on Highway 26
tjncj ^5 on the Rush lyric, LUV the band and its' music! I am wondering about the "alternate" routes and if the wetland/trees are as unique and historic to be so equally touted? By the time those trees reach 150, we'll probably be planning their demise as well. Set the example, let the old tree be grandfathered into the right to live another 150 years. :)
On Janesville parks remain off-limits to dogs in summer
A 100% ban for, what, the 15% rule breakers? Designated areas are the right answer, it's the rules and/or enforcement of rules that need to be addressed. There's some voluntary segregation in place, so that means there's a choice of where to go. Dogs need exercise, they should have places to go but I also feel it should be stringent of the owners discretion as to unleashing a dog that "may" be possibly aggressive and are legally responsible for their pets actions. Just my opinion, but punishing good people and good canines isn't the best choice if it's possible to address the real crux of the problem(s), even if it is a little more work and/or money. (aka defending a freedom)
On Evansville Bible group, communty efforts lead to large cross by Highway 14
gazettefan, your question makes little sense to me, sorry. Why people act the way they do totally eludes me at times, though. Perhaps my lack of focus bothers you, but then I am not judging or labeling and what or how I think or respond is not something steeped in any kind of condemnation. How this cross should matter where I view or judge people has irrelevance to me, but I believe it was done in good faith not as anything ill willed.
There is a big difference between righteous and self-righteous. I refuse to condemn an entire religion over instances where delusional self-righteous acts marred its purpose. The sad aspect is how the more angry and/or ill-thought attack so eagerly rather than entertain more peaceful and righteous alternatives, willingly tossing any respect whatsoever out the window. ie; can we not all get along? Or at least TRY to? Maybe, just maybe, it is meant to stand for something good. That's how I see it and welcome the visage.
On Killer cats prowl your bird feeders
Dirty birds poop when humans wash their cars, invasive things. Good thing cats help level the field, eh?! It's all perspective, common sense, not kill, that's somewhat simplistic thought. If there's a stray problem, be responsible and help make the humane solution work instead. No, it's not easier.
On What to do with all those cats, dogs?
I have the link, floating around facebook :) http://www.gazettextra.com/weblogs/lates...
twerp13 is correct it's been removed from immediate view. Although still there, the public wont be able to view it as it is no longer being shown on the main page where the other stories still exist.
On Mounds shuts down Rock County Humane Society satellite adoption center
Agree with garyprimer, I also would like to know that side of the story. Considering the nature of their business, such a statement might be good to retain customers listening to heresy based on the action(s) rather than the reason(s). I am sure something was the catalyst for such a drastic decision. It was great exposure and help for RCHS and a big loss for them. Something had to transpire or change.
On Communities, groups struggle with how to deal humanely with animals
There are students n Madison who are aspiring Vets, there are mass spay/neuter events they participate in. Couldn't there be some kind of incentive that could be offered for students volunteering to assist other areas such as in Rock County? Or maybe host such a mass Spayathon-type event here annually as a preventative measure?
..."In one case, an officer went to a home to feed an animal. In another case, an officer kept a dog in the back seat of his squad car for an entire shift while trying to determine what to do with the animal." ... There are people right now who foster-care pets out of thier own pockets. I am sure there would be those willing to help for a set period of time and, if necessary, assist in finding a new home as well after that time expires. This would help on many levels.
