Dear Ms. Jackson:
My name is Joseph Friedman. I am the president of a Land Owners Association
in Val Verde County. I have been speaking with Mr. Drew Traeger, Hollywood
Park City Administrator. I have offered a place for the Hollywood
Park deer to be relocated.
Our ranch is currently under a wildlife management plan with the Texas
Parks & Wildlife. Sylvestre Sorola Jr., Natural Resource Specialist
with the TP&W, has already given us the go ahead for these deer.
A little about our association: It is comprised of 20 modest land
owners, who do all they can just to make land payments, feed, water,
make repairs (e.g., windmills and wells), and care for the wildlife
under TP&W guidelines and strict rules set down by the association.
We are not wealthy ranchers nor do we allow hunters to hunt for a
fee. There are no high fences, just open country.
This area was hit hard by anthrax (which naturally occurs in nature)
several summers ago, and the deer population was knocked out. Therefore,
the existing number of deer is very low. If there was ever a place
that could support these deer, this is it.
About the article. Well, here we have a place for the deer, contrary
to what was suggested by Mr. Traeger in your article. There was also
no mention of the cost to the receiver of the deer (to trap, transport,
and transplant (Triple T), other than Hollywood park setting aside
30,000 dollars for this project.
Mr. Traeger has informed me that we would have to pay the trapper
$75.00 - $150.00 per head to relocate these deer. Then once they are
relocated, they need an antibiotic shot, and a shot for stress due
to the transporting. This could get quite expensive. We, as a group,
spend all our money providing for the needs of the wildlife, so we
cannot afford this.
To KILL and process these deer, the city is willing to spend approximately
$200 ($100 to trap and $100 to KILL and process), even though they
would only have to spend $100 to SPARE the deer and relocate them.
The city could bring them to us at their cost, then we could take
over the cost from there.
The city has mentioned that some of the processed meat goes to the
food bank, but where does the rest go? (on their tables?) Isn't the
city interested in saving money just by paying for the trapping and
transporting? (Is this not important to them?) I think the residents
of Hollywood Park, who do not want the deer KILLED, are not being
given the whole story.
If we cannot afford the trapping and transportation, why bother with
the final signature for the permit.
Feel free to contact m. Thank You for your attention to this issue.
I just moved back to the area after thirty years away. Can't believe
you have been at the station since 1991. Your days must be numbered
though. I can't imagine a talk show host can hang on for long without
bowing obsequiously before the altar of whatever the hell a Republican
Administration doles out for public consumption.
That's why you lose people like Lynn who are more interested in having
their prejudices confirmed than having their opinions challenged.
Interesting isn't it that we have a Republican president whose social
proposals would make LBJ blush. I'm a raving, dyed in the wool, devout
moderate myself. So, I don't always agree with you; but I admire your
Your show is an example of what talk radio could and should be; a
public forum that doesn't require the caller to be a card-carrying
reactionary to be treated with respect and not cut off in mid-syllable.
Keep up the good work.
By the way did it appear that the nude
ex-anchor had no tanning lines, so either she spends as much time
under the tanning lamp as she does with the silicone man or this isn't
the first time she's been in the altogether in the great outdoors.
