DNR confirms cougar in UP, Oct. '09. Anyone ever seen one...

I thought I saw one maybe six or seven years ago in my yard just outside of Tower. It was at night and I was backing up my car. As I looked through the rear-view mirror I saw an animal that was a yellowish color. I thought it may have been a dog but the tail was way too big. It was a bushy tail. A week before that my grandpa said he saw one cross the road in the same area. I live just a mile east of where the cougar killed the horse.  (Nov 8, 2009 | post #3)

No, I'm not a sex offender. Everyone makes mistakes in their lives. Some people's mistakes are more serious than others. I know the guy and he really isn't a bad man. I guess it is easy to judge a man when he is just a name on your computer screen.  (Sep 26, 2009 | post #15)

You are obviously pretty ignorant. So you think that we are only defending the nation if we are actually being attacked on our own soil? A key part of a good defense is deterrence. If our military was small and weak do you really think that the United States would still be around? If you want to think that the Iraq war is about oil, that's fine. There isn't a problem with that. Our nation's top leaders recognize that energy plays a vital role in our future. We are dependent on oil right now. Yeah, we have reserves of our own, but why use them when we can use oil from other nations? You need to think about the bigger picture a little more. Honestly, it makes me mad when people like you talk like that. Try being grateful for the sacrifices that Americans in uniform make every day in order to allow you to live the life the way you choose to.  (Jun 2, 2009 | post #14)

Stop, what kind of parent wouldn't beg for mercy from the judge? Are you going to hang your kid out to dry?  (Jun 2, 2009 | post #8)

How about freedom, opportunity, security, education, and stuff like that? This country offers more than a lot of other countries. Yeah, it isn't perfect here, but be thankful for what you have. It could always be worse.  (May 31, 2009 | post #12)

You know, you are probably right. There isn't anything wrong with that joining for the reasons they do. For some people though, they actually join because of their patriotism and their desire to defend everything that this nation has to offer. I've ran into a few like that throughout the years. I really like those guys...  (May 30, 2009 | post #10)

They aren't my children. If one of them was my child though, I would plead for mercy. I would expect any parent to. An irresponsible teen killed three people. He deserves to be punished.  (May 30, 2009 | post #3)

There was a Subway there when I was in town a few weeks ago. What happened to it?  (May 29, 2009 | post #48)

The military is a good choice for some people. There aren't any jobs in the area. We have one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation. I joined the army once I graduated and it is one of the best decisions I've ever made. I wasn't a flunkie in high school. I graduated with honors and was a member of the NHS. I could have gone to college and done well, but I didn't want to pay back student loans as soon as I graduated. So far I have a successful career as a professional soldier. I earn enough to have a much higher standard of living than if I decided to stay around Onaway. What job can you think of that will offer a kid fresh out of high school 30 days of paid vacation a year, free medical and dental, very cheap life insurance, free housing and food, and a whole lot more? Joining the military isn't a way out. It is a way to succeed and make something out of yourself. The military will make you a better person. It really doesn't matter why a person enlists.  (May 29, 2009 | post #8)

Prosecute the driver to the fullest extent of the law! The "accident " didn't have to happen. The driver was stupid and inexperienced and now three people are dead. One of them was a friend of mine.  (May 29, 2009 | post #1)

Wow...the things people say when nobody knows who they are. I love Onaway. I grew up there and it will always be my home. Yeah, there are some problems, but isn't that the case with every other place too? Onaway will never improve if people don't get off the couch and do some work themselves. The city can't do everything itself. It needs the help of the people who live there. I think that one of Onaway's biggest problems is that people don't have pride in their community. Everyone jokes about being illiterate as a result of their Onaway education, half the town is inbred, and other things. Onaway isn't a bad place. It just needs some jobs in the area. We need to look at our lovely Canadian governor for help there though. It's nice how she ignores northern Michigan, isn't it?  (May 25, 2009 | post #38)

He is far from perfect, but he is a good guy. Maybe that wife of his should be thrown in jail instead. Once she is gone everything will be just fine.  (May 24, 2009 | post #9)
