channel 9 report.

21 posts in this topic

All I can say is Finally this subject is getting the press it deserves. Will this hopefully get people to take notice and take the very small effort to e-mail there local, state and fed reps???? This is the only way this will every change (and it can change) sitting back and saying "it is what it is" is a cop out. This is the best opportunity there has ever been to make your opinions know do not waste this opportunity. It really is not that hard to send an e-mail to your pols. You do not need to make a long reasoning just say I disagree with the gill netting on ML simple as that.

I agree. E-mail all your important politicians and voice your concerns. Also it doesn't hurt to e-mail channel 9 news and thank them for being the only news station brave enough to take this story. Another story at 10 pm yet..........

Good point D. We need more news outlets that well take these type of things on. Come on everyone we can make change if we do not just sit back and do nothing. A simple e-mail will do more that you could ever imagine. lets not just let this opportunity die because this may be the last chance we have.

If someone is good with websites, I think starting a HSOforum regarding this or a myspace page might do wonders.

Links below. Due to volume of hits on these stories, you may periodically get "We're sorry. There are no stories currently available for this section.". If so, just try again or go directly to the Fox 9 News HSOforum. The story most of you will be interested in is the "Reaching Their Limit" segment, so don't be surprised if you get a message saying the story is not available. Just keep trying.

I like the guy that said they used to have to sneak out at night and now they can do it legally. One guy said he takes it home to share with his family. I do that too, but I can still only take 4 fish.

Nice coverage for Mille Lacs. I thought, for the most part, it was well done and very informative.

Didn't that same guy say he had about 700lbs of fish in his boat also, something has to be done about what is going on up there.

Is there just a simple list of email address's? I want to send many.

I did email the Governor- tim.pawlenty@state.mn.us

I do believe something can be done about this. If only banning the gill net for starters!! 100 years from now I firmly think this will not be happening like it is now- SO whay not try to change it NOW!!

Thanks

Jeff Pasolt is a hack.

Kinda funny when their talking about marketing the area and they/he dosent mention the casino. Fox is a joke of a media outlet.

Thanks for the links computerboy! Even though I watched the stories last night, I watched all 3 stories over again. Anyone interested in watching the stories should check out computerboys links as I got into the videos right away with no stalling with the large amount of people that are trying to watch it.

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
