As usual the pro-choicer uses words that dance around the real issue at abortion clinics.
"healthcare" "services" "womens rights"...all tidy little code words for murdering a living human being while its still in his or hers mothers womb and depriving them of their basic Right to Life.
Kudo's to the City of Green, and to the Pro-life movement for fighting another death mill in our area.

Regarding the comment on why the Ranger said he couldn't do anything about the dog at large-its a minor misdemeanor. In Ohio, Peace Officers have to witness the violation, or have an admission of guilt to sign the charges. If probably cause was thrown out the window, officers would be arresting people left and right, based only on a statement by one person.

As far as the editorial author's comment on needing Rangers on the trail- They do patrol the trails. But, they also need to be able to respond to other emergencies. They are covering hundreds or thousands of acres. If the authors wife was involved in an emergency and need law enforcement immediately, he would not want the officer back 20min down the trail, waiting for dog violations.

Nancy,
Thank you for your letter. I just don't understand why people like Etta think it is any of their business what I do with MY body. Wonder if she thinks we should put women who have abortions in prison for murder? Wonder if she would be comfortable turning over the major decisions in her life to a judge, a politician or another busy-body like herself?
it isnt about what you do with your body - its about what you do to the human being growing inside you. just as the public claims a right to intervene when you beat your child, a right ti intervene when you plan to kill the fetus isnt unreasonable - its far more than your body

That's it, the thugs that sell crack or people that train them to fight. I own and American Bulldog and a Pit Bull and they are the nicest dogs and very smart as well as loyal. They love children and play very gently with them. No matter what breed of dog you own, if you love it, feed it good nurishing food, take it to the vet, play with them and train them well. They are to growl and bark at stranger but only to approach within 5 feet of an adult stranger. Then once the person is greeted and seated the dogs just are on alert. No more growling or barking as long as all remains calm. Usually after a couple of visits the dogs accept that person as friends of the family. Its a shame what some have done to the reputations of these fine animals.

I too own an American Bulldog and a Pit-Mix. I have the same experiences with my dogs. They are very lovable and social. They only act tough when they think they are protecting me or another dog is acting aggressively towards them. Once they realize that I am not in danger, they want nothing but pets and hugs.

Sorry SJT, but you are wrong on this one.

The title of this news item is "Dangerous Dogs". How come you don't get the clear and direct link to pro-lifers?

LMAO!

Gee, I have a bichon that don't go "on alert... until all remains calm". If the dogs were trained in sucha loving environment, why would they need to be on alert and question if their enviornment would be calm???...Sorry, but you have made the argument for all of us much clearer...sjt

Most of those Southern Democrats that migrated to the GOP 30 years ago did so because of the civil rights movement and civil rights acts. Back then we weren't caught up in these intentionally divisive social isues created by the politicians. Also, how can you be pro-life and pro-death penalty at the same time? Both party's have their hypocritical moments, just take your pick as to the lesser of the two evils. Better yet, why must you be affiliatied with either? Imagine if those that are affiliated threw their arms up in the air one day and said enough, no more political parties....Look what they've done for themselves as opposed to the citizenry: Lifetime salary, retirement, and medical benefits.....Who else gets that?
30 years ago, civil rights was a socially divisive issue.=)

I am going to assume your question regarding pro-life/death penalty is hyperbole. How can it be difficult to understand the difference between an innocent life being terminated, and a guilty person dying as punishment for a heinous murder(s)? BTW, I think an entire life in jail is more cruel than the death penalty.

I'm not affiliated with either. I vote whichever party I agree with most, regardless of the name.
