Posted this thread 3-4 times yesterday and it keeps getting removed. But there is nothing wrong with it. Please leave it up, moderator:

This is the more recent letter submitted to ADN:

To the Editor,

Great article on non-lethal means of deterring bears ('Police use side range of tools to deter bears'; 12/22/2013). It includes an important stipulation: "Barnett emphasized that all of the deterrent tools are used with lethal cover: While one officer is firing a pepper ball another officer is covering him with a loaded firearm."

However, that same stipulation is not included in 'Be Bear Aware', a pamphlet advising the public to rely solely on bear spray for bear attacks. It is endorsed and distributed by the U.S. National Forest Service, National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife, and BLM. On the other hand, when the Sierra Club hiker was mauled in his tent in Canada by a polar bear last year, media reported Canada Parks advises people hire armed Inuit guards for polar bears (advice the Sierra Club ignored).

Interesting how Canada advises people use lethal means for bear protection, whereas the U.S. government advises the public to use bear spray (while they themselves use lethal means if necessary).

Sincerely,

Chris Deile

Both those videos showing Sylvie Vartan singing (en acoutant la pluie and tous mes copains) are my favorite of hers. Super nice videos.

To the Editor,

Tonto National Forest had three bear attacks last year, one in which a man had his scalp partially removed.'Kodiak police use wide range of non lethal tools to deter bears', an article from Alaska's Kodiak Daily Mirror, includes an important stipulation on this subject: "Barnett emphasized that all of the deterrent tools are used with lethal cover: While one officer is firing a pepper ball another officer is covering him with a loaded firearm." (12/22/2013)

However, that same stipulation is not included in 'Be Bear Aware', a pamphlet advising the public to rely solely on bear spray for bear attacks. It is endorsed and distributed by the U.S. National Forest Service, National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife, and BLM.

Conversely, Canada Parks advises people hire armed Inuit guards for polar bears. Interesting how Canada advises people use lethal means for bear protection, whereas the U.S. government advises the public to use bear spray (while they themselves use lethal means if necessary).

Just submitted letter above (post # 6) to Arizona Daily Star; unsure if it works though--had to fit it under 175 words, it's definitely got a different approach to it than a usual letter. It might still work....will see.

No, that was a little too awkward--just resubmitted it this way:

An article in Alaska's Kodiak Daily Mirror --'Kodiak police use wide range of non lethal tools to deter bears'-- includes an important stipulation on this subject: "Barnett emphasized that all of the deterrent tools are used with lethal cover: While one officer is firing a pepper ball another officer is covering him with a loaded firearm."

Conversely, Canada Parks advises people to hire armed Inuit guards for protection amongst polar bears. Interesting how Canada advises people use lethal means for bear protection, whereas the U.S. government advises the public to use bear spray (while they themselves use lethal means if necessary).

That's a good letter--the first one (post #6) didn't work well at all.

Watch this on CNN website today (12/24/2013):

"Coyotes-Sabres Game Ends in Craziest Way Possible"

It's a video showing the Phoenix Coyotes losing in overtime to the Buffalo Sabres as the puck flies in the air, dropping into the back of the pants of the Coyotes goalie; he then turnes around, not knowing the puck is in his pants, and crosses the crease, entering the goal and winning the game for the Sabres. Crazy! Great, great video.

The announcers say something like "Merry Christmas for the one team, bah humbug for the other."

That Michele Torr video really is good. It hadn't seemed to have a very good sound on first listen, but it's one of my favorites now. The carnival characters behind her kind of give me the willy's though. Have never been too fond of anything to do with carniavls for some reason. But a great video--right up there with her Les Amoreux.

Yeah, that was what they said when I posted about the bear spray not being enough to stop a charging bear issue on the ADN forum--that my posts were spam. They're not of course--that's silly--I'm not selling anything by stating the opinion.

ADN forum moderator didn't like the opinion, so what they did was make my posts only visible when I was signed into ADN. It took me a little while to catch on....perused the forum before signing in to see if there were any replies to my comments, only to find out my comments weren't there! I signed in and voila!--there they were.

The scoundrels had resorted to that deception in order to suppress the information countering their pro-pepper spray propaganda.

Guessing "Colorado Chick" is the moderator of this cyberspace graveyard. Happy Holiday's, yo! Btw, you removed my last post praising the Michele Torr Les papillon video too.
