Bobcat trapping proposal came from Fish & Game Commission, pure & simple

To The Daily Sun,

The Joint Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules reviewed the Fish & Game Commission's request to put the bobcat back on the hunting and trapping list. JLCAR, in the usual Concord fashion, tossed this issue to the House and Senate committees; this is how the Concord moon-dust fairies work. Rather then making the ruling on if the department had or not met the legal guidelines, they toss the ball in some other court — political BS at it's finest; nobody wants to loose votes come November.

This trapping proposal was never a House or Senate bill, it was a F&G Commission proposal. The commission did not acknowledge the input of the citizens, out of 6,000 comments to the F&G Department, only 250 were pro trapping and they total ignored that the lynx (on the federal endangered species list ) were threatened to be trapped. Federal law prohibits lynx trapping. States have been sued for doing so. They (F&G ) did not meet the legal requirement for this proposal, the issue should have ended on Friday, April 1.
The F&G Commission feels that it's the "science " of study that will allow the cat to be put back on the "management" list. Where was the commission when the "science" was ignored year-after-year, when the F&G Department wanted "bait hunting" for deer stopped? A compromise is not acting on the "science."

Our wish is simple, to graduate as others do, on our own campus

To The Daily Sun,

The senior class at Inter-Lakes High School is full of students who are ready for change. In our final months of high school we are caught up in the excitement of college, new beginnings, and graduation. However, this excitement is being dulled by the onset of a graduation, that we, the students, do not want. We do not want to graduate off campus, at a park that has no notable memorable value.

Coming from the class presidents of not only the senior class, but the junior and sophomore class as well, the students of ILHS are ready to graduate where we want to graduate. With financials and risk management fully thought out, with guidance from a turf field consultant and risk manager, we are not being rash in our decision to petition against Prescott Park. We have worked countless hours to figure out not only the logistical sides of this idea, but also to gain nearly four hundred signatures from classmates, parents, and taxpayers.

We are young adults, with a request that is not unusual. We wish to do what millions of seniors will be doing all over the country come this June, graduate on our school campus, on our turf field, and the place we have gone to every day for the past four years.
