  • Judgment call lets 'Wild Card' be just that

    I've always been one to watch a few baseball games throughout the season, but I must admit that I am not the biggest fan of professional baseball.

Now that the Wild Card round is complete, and we are in the midst of the Divisional Series, I find myself watching the games.

  • Coyotes can created problems for pet owners and hunters

    No matter how you feel about them, you sometimes have to deal with them.
    Do you love your small pets?like cats and small dogs? Do you think you should only hunt what you intend to eat? Or maybe you believe in not hunting at all?just let nature take its own course.
    But maybe if something's really dangerous, it can/should be dealt with! This is a dilemma for some?for others it's a small choice.
