No quota has been set for the wolf during this year’s season. The Idaho Department of Fish and Game has proposed a wolf hunting season for Aug. 30 to March 31. Jim Hayden, IDFG regional wildlife manager, said the commission has also proposed a trapping season for the wolf, Dec. 1 through Jan. 15. “We’ve added a month to the front of the hunting season and this will be our first trapping season,” Mr. Hayden said. The public is invited to an open house at the Panhandle Region office at 2885 W. Kathleen Avenue in Coeur d’Alene (today), from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Regional staff will be on hand to answer questions and to solicit input on the 2011 wolf season proposals. Mr. Hayden said the changes should bring an 18 percent harvest increase. Overall, the IDFG expects to see a 20 percent reduction in the state’s wolf population numbers/Summer Crosby, St. Maries Gazette-Record. More here.
Question: Do you support a wolf hunt without quotas in Idaho?
Take the McEuen Field project on the whole, or pick any one of its dozens of proposed amenities and either way, opinions will vary. Love it, hate it, too expensive, incredibly affordable or anything in between, so spreads the reaction to revamping the downtown park. Or, as Rick Knott put it at Thursday's open house: “I'm for some of the stuff and I'm not for some of the stuff.” Knott was one of roughly 200 who stopped by the public workshop on the park's conceptual design, where officials and designers hung a gallery of pictures in a step-by-step display, complete with itemized estimated costs and discussed the plan with visitors/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Do you expect the Coeur d'Alene City Council to approve the revised plan and move ahead with redevelopment of McEuen Field when it meets May 24?
An open house for the proposed McEuen Park Project will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. today at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library. Multiple easels with prints of the proposed park, showing the various associated costs of the amenities/elements, will be set up for viewing. Also displayed will be concepts for the boat launch and the baseball field. The purpose of the open house is to show the changes that have been made as a result of the many comments received through surveys, public forums, and personal correspondence. There will be opportunities for discussion with both the Design Team and Steering Committee members/Coeur d'Alene Today. More here.
Question: I'm going to attend the open house for awhile tonight, to see the changes made to the changes after the public input. How about you?
