It’s for the bears

My name is Paul McLaughlin. This is in response to Mr. Rich Mahoney’s comment regarding never remembering that a bear attack has caused a death in the 34 years he’s been in the valley. I’d like to remind Mr. Mahoney that it’s to protect the bears, not the people. When bears become used to eating in garbage, the Division of Wildlife has no option but to destroy these bears. So his question should really be how many bears have died in the 34 years that Mr. Mahoney has been in the valley. Remember, garbage kills bears.

Economics 101

To all those who want an explanation for why gas prices are once again above $3 a gallon. It’s pretty simple, actually. The laws of supply and demand. As the demand for gas goes up, the cost goes up. The way to get the cost of gas down is for everyone to slow down a bit, which uses less gas, and to drive less, and that also uses less gas. Hopefully as the prices go higher, people will again slow down their usage and our prices will go back down. This is Randy Guerrero.


Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

This is Steve Kohler. I just wanted to remind other women in regards to Heather Lemon’s commentary today that Canada has the same laws that we do in regards to obtaining any type of gun, and they also play the same type of video games that we do, and they don’t have the same problem. So perhaps it’s not the video games.
