      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

KFAN's Puffy arrested for Crack

Recommended Posts

Just saw this on the news. very sad. Meth is a terrible drug. I wish puffy the best and I hope he can come thru this ok. I guess this explains why he was gone for a month earlier this year. Must have tried to go to treatment to get help. My thoughts and prayers are with him.

Wow, I wouldn't have thought someone like him getting into meth. I have personally seen several peoples lives ruined by meth including a family member. It is the pure evil in my opinion. I hope he can one of the few who can kick it.

That is a shock. I know he's a rube but I enjoy listening to him. P.A. just loves to listen to his own voice- I could do w/out him... Best wishes Puffy...

That's too bad for him.

Felony possession, more than 6 grams. I'm no drug runner, but that seems like a lot. Intent to sell probably.

I guess we know his weight loss program now.

That stuff is nasty. I've seen some people crash and burn on it. I bet if it was 6 grams, it was personal. I believe though it's a felony to have any powdered substance, whether it's a trace or a bunch.

Just shows it can happen to anyone. Sad news for sure. I knew he was in rehab, was thinking it was alchohol or something. Meth is very evil. I think he is a good down to earth guy that has had some person problems. I don't think his marriage lasted all that long. Maybe he took it hard or is just one of those poeple that has a hard time dealing with things. I wish him the best and I hope he makes it back on the air.

From doing a little looking around, there is a lot of speculation involving this case, so what really happened won't be known until Monday when the police report is released.

He was charged with a precursor drug which could mean that he was just in possession of too much Sudafed or Ephedrine.

Either way his public Rep will take a hit for sure.

I'm a bit skepital of the Sudafed angle at this point...I'd be shocked if it was just a couple packs of Sudafed over the limit.

Get well Doob's!

"Just shows it can happen to anyone"

No, not if you have any sense at all. Only a loser would try such a drug in the first place.

No, turns out, he was charged with something illegal, that is not speculation.

If he really is in the wrong on this, I don't feel the slightest bit bad for him, his choice/mistake and his turn to pay the consequences.

ALL DRUGS are bad and should be stayed away from. That being said, we have no idea what was going on in his life. I've been down before, turned to a bottle for a while and it gets you know where. Luckily I had friends that made sure it didn't last more than a week and they picked me up and got me back on track. I've never had the feeling to turn to drugs. I've been around them in my life and have seen what they do to people. Some people hit bottom hard, maybe he hid it well and friends and family didn't pick up till it was too late. I think Meth is pretty addicting, but I'm not sure. I won't get down on Dubay cause he had some rough times and took a bad turn. I don't condone what he did, but I'm not gonna rip him to shreds for it either. It's unfortunate. How many folks does this happen to all the time and we only hear of this because he's on the radio. All these people need help, not sympathy, just help and I hope he gets it and gets his life on track.

You oviosuly haven't had any close friends or family members that have been addicted to this drug. I know some very good people that have been or are addicted to it and it's terrible. It can change someone overnight. IF puffy was arrested for meth possession I wish him the best. I hope he can get past it and put an end to his meth use. I wish the same to anyone addicted to it.

Why in the world would someone try a drug in the first place?To much time on his hands , the ole boy should have tried fishing or hunting. ANYONE who tries a drug is a total looser ( no excuses folks)

I look at drug use this way. First off the stuff, meth, coke, ect is made with nasty chemicals like acetone and all kinds of other nasty stuff in quite unclean places. Then you buy the junk from some weirdo who had the stuff in a baggie jammed down his pants. Now would anyone even consider buying a sandwich made in the same place and shoved in someone's pants? NOT ME!

Do you drink coffee? Smoke Cigs? Drink alcohol? All of these are DRUGS! They are just socially acceptable. If you do enjoy any of these drugs, you would then be calling yourself a loser!

Careful when judging people!

Funny thing is, alcohol is one of the most deadly and harmful drugs of them all, yet we can buy it everywhere and look down on those that don't drink!

I have heard from a reliable source that it is not METH and the officer used the wrong statute. This is not a big deal.

Hugely overblown

He was released without being charged according to the Star Trib.

Here is the story.

Jeff Dubay, a talk show host on KFAN (1130 AM) was arrested by Maplewood police about 10 p.m. Wednesday on suspicion of fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance, a felony.

He has not been charged; police are investigating.

The arrest occurred after Dubay, driving west on state Hwy. 36, turned north onto English Street in Maplewood, Police Chief David Thomalla said Friday.

Because the case still is under investigation, he added, police were providing no details about why the vehicle was stopped, or what drug might be involved.

Dubay was booked into the Ramsey County jail, and later released pending further investigation. Police hope to complete the investigation next week, the chief said.

Dubay co-hosts the "PA and Dubay Show" with Paul Allen weekdays from 9 a.m.-noon. He also co-hosts Vikings post-game shows on KFAN and is on the air for Gophers hockey games on FSN North.

He has not been on KFAN since Wednesday and did not appear on FSN North this weekend, either.

No mention of meth, and he wasn't charged. It could be something as minor has having perscription medicine in a bottle that is not properly labeled. I think we should wait for the facts to come out before the judging begins.

Whether overblown or not, what's done is done, and happening right after coming out of rehab and all the other stuff with FSN (refs).

I think he's done.

and.....if you look around there are plenty of reports that specifically call out Meth. Those could be wrong though, but they are out there.

    • I'll second that!! Gotta get some more cawn today....
    • From the  picture it is a male yellow headed blackbird; IMO there is even a faint white bar on the wings which may be what you describe as "the ring on its back" and the black smudge under and behind the eye.  I can't tell about the bill, but on a cowbird the bill is quite heavy;  not nearly so stout on the YH blackbird. Immature male yellow headed black birds are not so bright yellow as the adults, and there should definitely be some young of the year fledged by this time of the year.   If the picture is not accurate then we will need a better photo to do better than that.  IMO This picture does not show a brown headed cowbird.  Most cell phones will take a better picture and if it is tame enough please post another or even better a couple more.  The more different poses the better. Yellow headed blackbirds are almost invariably connected to swampy areas, especially those with cattail fringes.  They also tend to be around in groups, especially groups nesting in the same swamp not mixed in with red winged black birds.   The females of both species are quite drab, and quite distinct from those of the cowbirds.
    • I do live by a river and have lots of RWBB, maybe it will yellow up. That's a very distinct rusty brown ring on it's back though, I didn't see that in any of the YHBB pictures.
    • This furnace has 2 pipes. The larger pipe about 4" is the air intake is supported through ring #29. The smaller pipe inside the larger pipe about 2" is the furnace exhaust connected through the larger ring #30 and screwed to the raised portion of ring #29. My furnace a vintage Hydro Flame Convection with dual direct vent, needed no power, and used a pilot light. Had the identical 2 pipe direct vent as yours. I built 2 rings similar to your drawing. Had 2 major issues: 1. Anytime the wind exceeded 20 mph, my pilot light would blow out even when the furnace side of my house was parked to the leeward side due to wind eddies.  2. At the exhaust cap which was about 1 3/4" from the side of the house would scorch the side surface above the cap and the moisture from burning Propane (1/2 pt. per 10#) would freeze on and below the exhaust when temp went -10 or below. Second year I re-designed using the Pipe Cap photo 1 from Menards for under $10. I cut off the bottom half at the black line and cut a hole on the outside flat surface for the exhaust pipe. This was my fresh air intake. Also filled the inside of the cap with a disassembled expanded metal filter from a motor home stove top exhaust filter.  Photo 1   Secured it to my house and ran the exhaust pipe through the hole in the end. Attached the exhaust pipe to a 2" x 3" aluminum gutter down spout used as a chimney. Photos 2 and 3. Totally solved my issues. You may also find a similar cap to photo 1 for the exhaust instead of the pipe. Most of the caps I was able to find had a 4" connection point so you would need to modify to 2" or whatever size you exhaust pipe is. How ever you do it, cover all openings with a screen to keep the Mud-daubers out as they love burned propane orifice area to build there nest.  Photo 2 & 3
    • sure looks like YHBB.  open fields and swamps close by? They like to hang out where the RWBB do.  Cannon SX30IS is pretty cheap online. 35 power zoom. good for still shots.   
    • Going to bait tomorrow with fryer grease, bread, dog food, cherry frosting, peanut butter, soft candies, raw white sugar, and popcorn. I am throwing everything at them tomorrow, hopefully the bears like the variety!
    • I don't know about that but I will certainly not write him off, if he can be a steady vet I will be happy. 
    • That's a great chicken recipe duff, but that steak n corn get my vote!!
