Re: “From Butte Lady to Butte Dude

You very rarely see someone actually not pick up after their dog. It's dpne when no one is looking. The campaign I'm talking about makes it clear that everyone out there is paying extra carefull attention. For example, someone might come across fresh poop and someone with a dog just passed them. So thet shout of the trail, "hey, did you leave this here?" It would take to long to explain how you get that to happen but it's really simple when you have the stuff. Two or three weeks later the problem is solved and it lasts at least a couple of years.

Re: “From Butte Lady to Butte Dude

Sounds like you guys need to run the campaign again. Takes a couple of weeks and lasts for years. How long are you there? You just need to get Susan's permission and we can send you what you need. Pretty easy.

Re: “From Butte Lady to Butte Dude

As current park hosts - we are looking forward to watching the PB Challenge for the first time.... but we would like to plead with the owners of the "countless dogs" whose stomping grounds these are - please please PICK UP after your dogs! We spend countless hours picking up after your dogs!

Re: “Hikers Haven

The author does not respect the land and should not steer readers to untrammeled places so they could pick up obsidian and take it home.

Re: “Get Wet

Blue Pool took the life of my daughter's college friend a few years ago. It's so cold that it shocks you when you jump in and then the automatic reflex is to breathe. Drowning/injuries occur there often. I suggest revising your list.

Re: “The Effects of Feeding Deer in Town

@La Pine Mike, you're missing the point entirely. Feeding deer aggregates them in areas. When they're clustered like that, they're more likely to transmit diseases such as AHD to each other. Another clear point Jim makes is that our food, our domestic pet's food, or any other sort of sweet feed just isn't good for them. There is nothing humans make that deer should be eating.

@dwpbike, the east coast deer (i.e. white-tailed deer) to which you refer are indeed more populous on that side of the country. The deer in Central Oregon (i.e. mule deer) don't have that luxury. Your response is cavalier to the point of ignorance about issues related to deer in Central Oregon.

Re: “The Effects of Feeding Deer in Town

um, too many variables to be drawing conclusions. with the number of deer i see in tn, ga, and al, farmers would welcome a disease. the deer seem to love gmo corn and soy beans.

Re: “The Effects of Feeding Deer in Town

Is Cracked Corn the same as Corn Tortilla Chips ? What about Screening Pellets from a Feed Store ? Are these save for the Deer ? I do leave a bowl of water available for my neighborhood deer but will now remove it for the reason given in this article.

Re: “The Effects of Feeding Deer in Town

So how about telling people what they CAN feed deer that is healthy for the critters? People love feeding animals, it makes them feel good, they want to help the poor, starving wildlife. What can we feed wild deer that actually helps them instead of harming them...there must be something?

Re: “Protecting the High Desert We Love

#1 Wind "farms" are NOT farms at all rather they are power plants... but... hey, go ahead and buy into the wind industry's language which is singularly intended to deceive and buy support by using quaint sounding labels which don't accurately describe the product.

#2 Wind power plant operations do NOT make for "clean" energy - former Surgeon General Stewart said this in 1978 :

Calling noise a nuisance is like calling smog an inconvenience. Noise must be considered a hazard to the health of people everywhere.

Look to any industrial scale wind power plant operating in the New England Area (where I live) and you will learn about the degradation communities who agree to host these facilities have been struggling to deal with. EACH and EVERY project was permitted based on serious errors, omissions and misrepresentations provided by the developer and their complicit consultants. The NOISE (audible, low frequency and infra sound) degrades the health and welfare of all wildlife, including migratory birds and bats along with degrading the health and trampling on the private property rights of neighbors who live TOO CLOSE. Too close is being defined as within one and a quarter miles BUT the infra sound pressure may travel even longer distances (see recent testing in Colorado to understand the impacts on local farm animals and wildlife - not to mention neighbors).

#3 Wind Energy is a fools game, it is not dispatchable, it is not reliable, it raises electric rates, it is prone to gear box failure and lightening strikes among other mechanical failures, it harms human health due to noise and strobing issues, the turbine itself is manufactured using large amounts of fossil fuel, the construction and operations endanger aquifers and watersheds, Energy Efficiency and Conservation would do far more than this boondoggle of an energy program which is soley intended to line the pockets of developers all the while destroying wildlife habitats.

Please educate yourselves and support a more sane energy agenda - one that does not destroy environments which should be treasured not destroyed for what amounts to GREED and Capital Cronyism cloaked in the robe of "clean energy".

Re: “Wildflowers in Springtime

It everyone dream to have these beautiful flowers in their backyard, they look so pleasant. Gardening can add so much to a home, especially when it brings color and creativity. We are looking for garden renovation services, One of my friends suggest me few Gardening services like, servicesseeking and few more. Because it is always good to have a beautiful garden with such type of vibrant flowers.

Re: “Keeping the Machine Running

Yes, I agree that physical therapy is the specialized medical focus which helps to relieve pain while improving mobility and function. Many of the physical therapists say that installing a walk-in bathtub, which provides the feature of hydro-jets that are carefully placed in these tubs to target the tight, aching areas that could use a little soothing. Last month my grandmother was also dealing with knee pain. As we had consulted with the physical therapist, the therapist had suggested us to install a walk-in bathtub by the professionals of walk in bathtubs in Renton(, because these tubs have therapeutic benefits that could help her to soothe the aching muscles and joints and release body tension.
