The "gadfly" you speak of isn't seen in my family portrait....there are just hard working people who have taken good care of their land and work hard in the SYV. The Beverly Hills living "winery" builder trying to roll over our neighborhood is the one you should be wary of, not your neighbor...maybe Mr Rosenburg has represented this man in some manner?
On S.B. Wineries Are Not a Problem

As a member of a 5th generation family in the SYV- who came here as farmers and continue as business focused employers & employees- I feel ignored darn near by the County- so where Lee R thinks the complainers are hiding- I say look around- Doreen Farr and I rarely see eye to eye, but in this case- she is correct.....as a neighbor to a developing "winery"- we are treated as though our 50 yrs of taxes are worthless and our family is considered transient compared to the "winery" and its value.
We, along with many hard working families, made this Valley- and the reason people want to live here is its family oriented values. Nothing wrong with grapes, wine, proccessing it or drinking it- celebrating it or even bathing in it.
Enough is enough- take a deep breath and if its worth building, its worth discussing...and worth waiting for.

dueceswild- if that were the case, he would have gutted and skinned it right there- you don't take the whole animal out silly..you leave some behind for the coyotes and other feral pigs...

blackpoodles- do me a favor...please come park yourself and your chalkboard at the corner of Roblar and 154- sit on the dirt parch on the SE side. Do it on a Friday at 8am and then again at 4-5pm.
Our intersection is at capacity- it is hard for our school bus to make a left hand turn- can't imagine what it would be like with an addition of 3 wineries.....

Holly- thank you for keeping the discussion about RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNERS.

We weren't there Ken- the photo shows the dog sitting down- hardly the way the dog was described at the time of the shooting.If someone came on my property and shot our dog- or any of our animals for that matter, I would be heartbroken. I am heartbroken for the owner of this dog- but it seems like the dog, while under his care, acted in a manner that was not acceptable by another- and the authorities in charge dealt with it.We all need to accept that this was handled by the responsible authority.

Schifter- excellent point. I was attacked at a restaurant by a leashed dog- the owner said I scared her dog by opening an umbrella at the table next to her. No apology for the dog biting my arm- which was raised shoulder level. Ken- common sense tells me he took a shell from his belt and loaded it- no where in the article does it say he shot while falling or from the ground. I am guess he stood up, loaded and shot.

"While I think shooting the dog was in poor judgement and perhaps could have been avoided- the responsibility falls on the owner more concerned with themselves and not those they may encounter on the trail"
No where did I say it was okay to shoot the dog. You are out of line to even suggest I said that.

Where was it stated the weapon was loaded? That is assuming, and you know where that gets you.
Most hunters keep their rifle ( I assume it was a rifle, not one hunts with a hand gun), unloaded and over their shoulder. It is stupid to walk with a loaded rifle- one learns this in a hunter safety course- if you trip and fall- the rifle could go off. Now- in order to be a successful hunter, you need to have your ammo within reach, so it was probably in a belt holder in a snapped case. It takes little time to reach for and to load a single shell into a rifle.
I am positive the Rangers asked all these questions and if there was ANY irresponisility on the hunters part, there would be a citation issued.
