Dear Sam Clovis, Catholic and (Republican) political activist...

Maybe it's time you re-examined your "conservative principles."

OOO -Scarey.

I live in a fairly-large Midwest city, houses all around with some wooded area intermixed.

About 8 yrs ago, in the wee hours of the night, I heard animal noises and sounds - like fighting - in my smallish enclosed backyard.
Too frightened to even look, I called the police, who responded quickly.
Upon hearing my story, they went to the area and reported that there was a seriously injured deer and that it would have to be put down.
It appeared that another animal had chased it and attacked it; we presumed the attacker was a coyote.
The SPCA dragged the dead deer to my curb, where a larger SPCA truck came the next day and took the carcass away.

Nothing like that incidence before or since.
Deer only began appearing in our neighborhood in the last 20 years, and now are regular visitors. Before that, raccoons were the wildest animals in the neighborhood.

Over 100 children out of less than 900 -that's

over 11% that were not permitted to attend.
Way too high for an in-school function.

$10 for 45 minutes at the carnival, with popcorn and trinket toys?

That charge is way too high - not a good value.

A reasonable charge should have been negotiated that would include all the children.
The Parents' Association sponsored the event? What does that sponsorship mean? Did they pay anything, or did someone get a cut or was a crony profiting?

Thanks. Now I know.

Information please: is it true that coyotes will

mate with domestic dogs?

Could that account for some of the proliferation we are now seeing?

If they are interbreeding, would they also tend to be less afraid of humans, and have less fear of going near and into populated areas?

Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) has raised more money this quarter than any other

incumbent Senator except Sen. Chuck Schumer of NY, as reported by Deidre Shesgreen for USToday.

Portman has more cash on hand than all but three of his Senate colleagues who will be on the ballot in 2016.

Portman's cash on hand stands at $8,000,000+.
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, the largest donors to Sen. Portman, by industry, are Securities and Investment, followed by Retirees, and Insurance.
