Protect your kids

13 posts in this topic

Progress is being made on the 68-acre soccer field being built next to Hugo WMA.

Just seems like a wonderful place for children to play. West Niles, Lymes, Pack of Coyotes, Black Panther, hunting in WMA, and poor access, questions why our public officials made the decision to build a soccer field there?

Very poor quality Hwy 8 road access to park, large pot holes you could damage your car? No bike path or trail to the park.

Misquote born West Niles disease is in the area, have found numerous dead Crows and Blue Jays.

The deer tick population is exploding and Lymes disease is up in this swampy Hugo area.

Coyotes call the WMA home and have come in and checked me out while I was bow hunting the WMA. Coyotes are not afraid adults so should they be afraid of children.

Seen the Black Panther in the ditch next to the soccer field eating on a road-killed deer. Black Panther won’t be afraid of kids either.

Parents make sure to protect your children when you bring them to play in this close but wild and remote area.

Soccer is killing baseball! They should have built a baseball complex.

At least the short grass will keep the ticks and mosquitos at a minimum, and those wily coyotes are going to have a tough time sneaking up on the kids.

Was that Eldridge Cleaver enjoying the venison?

The black panther of Hugo was mentioned on monster quest on the history channel.

I thought everyone in MN knew about the panther:) There where pictures in the St. paul pioneer and the Star probably seven or eight years ago. I have not heard of any sightings in last five years.

Look at it this way...

People who hunt in the wma now have a 68 acre food plot to hunt.

The pictures that were shown back then, appeared much closer to a big Black House Cat...maybe manipulated or not, but really not convincingly looking like a Panther, which up here of course, would be an escaped, abandoned pet at best...not an African Panther, tryin' it's luck in Minnesota... whistle

I believe so, but there are people that collect exotic animals and then they find out that they are hard to take care of and let them go. Morans, but it happens.

    • the make knives to cut them smaller!!!!!!!
    • Riiiiight... How come they didn't produce this document 8 years ago...
    • I would have started out at a young age, teaching them right from wrong. And that regardless of their gender tell them that I love them. When you make a mistake, you own up to it and be accountable. You do the crime, you do the time. And I that I still love them.
    • I thought you were AGAINST fake news now?
    • That's a good little tip.  I'll have to give it a try.  
    • I may not be an economist but it doesn't take a genius to realize that accumulating debt at the rate we are now accumulating it is a recipe for disaster. Debt is more than doubling every 8 years. There is no sign that debt accumulation will even slow down in the future and there is definitely no indication that we will start paying it down, unless you believe the Donald when he said he was going to eliminate debt in 8 years before he said he wasn't going to do that any more.   As Purple indicated above if you are OK with saddling your grandchildren with all of the debt that your and my generations accumulated and can sleep well at night then good for you. I think the party of accountability should start holding someone accountable but you and they just want to continue kicking the can down the road. What do you care? You won't live forever, right? Might as well let someone else worry about it.   Are all government policies rooted in fact? Everything that you or the party that you constantly support proposes is able to be defended by facts? What about all the morality laws, nothing based from religion is factual. Are abortion laws based on facts? How do you know if a woman should have ultimate control of their body? What are the facts that support it? How about gay rights laws? What facts do you have that support not allowing gay couples the same rights as heterosexual couples? What are the facts that support it being a bad idea that I buy a car or a 6 pack of beer on Sundays in Minnesota?   There are plenty of laws and Policies that are enacted by all types of politicians that are unable to be defended with facts.
    • Geez...we must fish the same lakes  Both of these posts above have become common now that "ice castling" has become the latest fad and everyone and their mother is on the ice.  There is an abnormally large % of those with the shiny new toy who chose only to save money on their generator, but spend as much as they possibly can on their truck and fish house.  I can spot them from a mile away...3-4 guys get out of the truck, they circle around the fish house a few times wondering how to get it lowered to the ice, then they finally figure it out, and 2 of the guys offload the residential home backup generator and carry it 100 yards away, 150 pulls later they get it fired up, and I only know because it's so loud it rattles the dishes in my cabinets.
