The Complicated Cat Lady Down the Street

by Judith Goldman

With estimates ranging from fifty to over a hundred million feral, stray and abandoned cats in the United Statesâ??and millions more in shelters–the best way to limit and reduce their numbers is hotly debated nationwide. The Complicated Cat Lady Down the Street offers a thoughtful examination of this controversial issue, as well as a portrait of the challenges faced by a dedicated rescuer who’s turned her home into a sanctuary for feral cats. Other books on this topic have concentrated on heart-warming tales of individual cats, or on providing the how-tos of Trap-Neuter-Return. There are some good cat stories and trapping tips in this book, too, but its major focus is analyzing the increasingly difficult and emotionally charged decisions faced by lawmakers, animal shelter workers, rescue organizations and anyone who has ever loved a pet.



Getting Canadian Oil to Market

by Don Helm

What does the United States do? Do we welcome Canadaian oil as a blessing with the knowledge that the supply is secure and we don’t have to worry about OPEC lowering production or cutting shipments all together? Or do we worry about possible spills, hydrocarbons, and continued dependency on oil? Alternatives are years away at best and it would be nice to control our own energy availibility for the first time. Canada is a great ally and we need to preserve that relationship. The oil will be sold somewhere around the world it would be a shame to sit back and watch it go to Asia. As for the Keystone XL pipeline it is going to be built and even if it wasn’t alternate ways of getting the crude to American refineries are already being utilized. Whether thousands of long term jobs are created or not this time lets do what is best for our country and our fellow citizens.



Catch Cold Water Crappie Now

by John E. Phillips

Crappie don’t die in the winter months. Often you’ll catch the biggest crappie of the year during cold weather for several reasons. Winter crappie tend to school on certain structure and bottom breaks and hold in that same location for several weeks. For this reason, if you find where a school of crappie is holding, you often can go back to that same location for several consecutive weeks, and continue to catch good numbers of big crappie. Since wintertime crappie are often slow to bite, patience will produce more crappie than constantly moving from location to location. So, if you find crappie on your depth finder, and you give them an opportunity to bite for 30 to 45 minutes and don’t start catching them, then you may want to change vocations. Oftentimes different schools of crappie bite at different times of the day.

Remember that crappie aren’t bears. They don’t hibernate, and they do have to feed all year long. This book contains tips and tactics from crappie specialists. With the information you find here, we hope to put big slab crappie in your livewell during the winter and plenty of white, tasty fillets on your plate.
