I can not help but wonder why he shot it in the first place. Was it attacking him or his family? What type of person goes out into the wild and just randomly shoots something to begin with? If this is the way a "Professional Hunter" responds to seeing something in the woods that is big and hairy then he should have his guns and right to hunt taken away from him!
As far as a special phone number I dial 911 to report erratic drivers. I always tell the dispatcher what road I am on and approximate milepost. I have done this numerous times on the Beeline going South and North. I also have witnessed DPS and Town officers with the car pulled over that I called the complaint on. Also I have called in drivers going South in the North bound lane several times. So whether they were drunk, confused, high on drugs or just not paying attention, for them to get stopped by an officer perhaps not only saved the driver's life but someone in another vehicle. And always remember you do not have to have service on your cell phone to dial 911.
Pat: Yes there used to be a sidewalk on both sides of Airport Road. I believe they were put in as part of a road improvement project for beautification. Tom: It has been that way for months now possibly early Spring! It was all part of the water pipeline expansion project. the same one that was put in across the Rumsey 1 ball field. But they repaired that one. I have tried to find out when and if the sidewalk is going to be replaced but to no avail. Pretty typical
Has anyone else driven up Airport road and noticed the horrible eyesore on the side of the road? There was once a nice wide sidewalk that people could use to walk on and now there are piles of rocks, weeds, washed out areas and trash along side the road. What a waste of money to put in a nice wide sidewalk for people to use and then dig it up and replace it with dirt and rocks! I would think that whoever the contractor(s) were should have to replace the sidewalk that they tore up to put in a water line!
I had heard that Game and Fish took the dead goose and the arrow and were pursuing an investigation. Whether this is true or not I do not know. But it would seem feasible that they could obtain fingerprints from the arrow. And compare it with fingerprints on file? Does anyone know if this can be done or if the killing of this goose is being investigated?
I agree. Is there anyway that perhaps fingerprints could be taken off the arrow or would they have degraded being exposed to the elements? Or does Game and Fish pursue these efforts in trying to apprehend someone who would do this?
A huge thanks should be sent out to the former Fire Marshal for securing the grant needed to fund devices like the one that saved this family's life. What a wonderful service he provided for our community and its citizens. And to think our Town Government decided to do away with Robert Lockhart's position as Fire Marshal in order to save a few thousand dollars. For the naysayers that doubt the importance of such a position in Fire Prevention and Life Safety this article should be proof positive of how valuable he was to this community.
The system as it is now is not broken. The local fire departments work closely with one another and respond accordingly. If a fire district is formed who is going to foot the bill? The taxpayers! Their taxes will increase by a lot not just a few dollars here and there. And if it were to go to a system where people pay for their fire protection and someone decides not to pay into that system the first time they need fire personnel/apparatus and have to pay out of pocket expenses into the thousands of dollars it would be an eye opener. i am 100% against a Fire District forming in the area. Bad idea, very bad idea!!
Tom: I am trying to find out what the recommendations were. I do know that it involves a new code. It was decided on in meetings held in April-June is what I was told. Fire codes are being constantly changed in Payson to suit developers and business owners. I can think of at least 3 major codes that were changed in the past 2 yrs all against the input by the Fire Department because of safety issues for residents, property owners and last but not least our Fire Fighters! I will let you know when I find out more information!
It should be public record. The Building Advisory Board would be the first stop in the search for exactly what was suggested by the Fire Department.
