Jim, I was going through counting and only saw 6 until I read your post. Didn't see the little tiny building in 2011 at first. Had to go back and look. Way to go!!!

Nice pictures! Love the Mendota Light!

By Eugene Zuverink (Zube) on Sunday, January 29, 2012 - 09:10 am:

In the 2006 picture, what were the little buildings used for. They look like someone had a lot of dogs.

By Eugene Zuverink (Zube) on Sunday, January 29, 2012 - 09:16 am:

I know now what the little buildings were for,it's when the husband came home a little tipse, he stayed in there.

Right now, we are experiencing a light dusting of snow in SE-MI and just in time for.......Spring!
Thanks for the congrats Shirley, but believe me, I just happened to trip over a shoe this morning and fell on the 6 and the send button...go figuur.

By Hollidays (Hollybranches) on Sunday, January 29, 2012 - 04:29 pm:

Great day today, got another 8" of snow. The snowmobilers are having a "hay day".

Making roast beef, mashed potatoes, gravy and corn for supper tonight.

We're plum wore out from plowing, shoveling and snowshoeing. Enjoy your Sunday Yoops.

All I'll say about the wolf story is that uneducated ranchers and greedy hunters are loving that news.

Not a nice response for the people UP here that have lost a lot of livestock and their pets Capt. Paul. How would you like it if one of your pets were killed and eaten by a wolf? What would you do?

I haven't seen anything on Pasty cam regarding the 750 cell tower
to be built on brockway Mountain.....not even on the POlitics and
religion site. Is everyone in agreement with such a structure going
up on Brockway? It sure doesn't make me happy. There should be
someplace more suitable for the tower,just not Brockway

By Erica - Florida Keys (Erica) on Sunday, January 29, 2012 - 05:42 pm:

oops....should have said 750 foot tower.

Sometimes progress is a hard pill to swallow, but the same progress allows us to converse on this website, and as Mr. Spock once said, "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few."

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Sunday, January 29, 2012 - 06:25 pm:

Hollidays, did you ever watch "HeeHaw" (don't worry I wouldn't admit it either), but your listing what you're 'fixin' for dinner reminded me of Grandpa Jones calling out in answer to "what's for supper, Grandpa?":D
Alex, did you break your toe for that bird?

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Sunday, January 29, 2012 - 09:21 pm:

I've had many pets in wolf country and never had one eaten by a wolf or any other creature, but then again I'm a responsible pet owner who kept mine inside. We were taught that the wolf had a place in nature just the same as the bear, cougar, and every other animal. Each serves their purpose in nature; it is only when the uneducated who believe they know what's best comes along that the real problems begin.

So back to the question of "How would you like it if one of your pets were killed and eaten by a wolf? What would you do?" When I lived in Red Jacket, we had wolves and bear in our backyard all the time, yet, we never had an issue and they never posed a threat. And as far as people losing livestock; I guess one has to ask who is encroaching on who's land? The rancher doesn't like wolves because they eat his expensive livestock. The hunter doesn't like the wolf because it eats his prized game. The wolf is just doing what he has done for thousands of years, and if the rancher is going to put out "fast food" for the wolf, what's he going to do?? I'm sure there are many nights when you don't feel like making dinner and go out to a restaurant for food; does that make you any different that the wolf???

But therein lies the problem; city folk moving to the country that then have to rid nature of all the "pests" for no other reason than they just don't like them. The Native Americans have lived with the wolf for thousands of years and have always respected it and all the animals in nature. I believe that anyone who is a true lover of nature should take a page from the Native Americans, the original rancher, hunter, and conservationist.

I'm 1/8 Chickahominy Indian and I vote for the wolves.;>

By Sean Finnegan (Sean) on Sunday, January 29, 2012 - 11:31 pm:

Very well said, Capt.

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Monday, January 30, 2012 - 06:29 am:

In eastern Iowa we do not have wolves or bears, unless a freak stray away. But we do have wild dog packs and cougars roaming about. What posed a threat to dad's baby calves and yearlings? The irresponsible and inconsiderate hunters! Just for the thrill of a hunt of anything.

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Monday, January 30, 2012 - 07:48 am:

Amen to that, Capt. Paul.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Monday, January 30, 2012 - 07:55 am:

Nicely done, Capt!!! Sometimes people just have to know their places!!
