Fish & Game wants $5 license fee surcharge for residents

A $5 surcharge on resident licenses and a $10 fee on nonresident licenses would raise an estimated $2 million a year, half of which would go to improving access for hunters and anglers. Some would go to reimburse landowners for damage done by hungry wildlife, and some would go to control wildlife that do the damage.

Lightspur makes is easier to run in the dark

With temperatures warming up, you're more likely to go outside for a run or bike ride. But daylight is still at a premium, meaning that if you want to exercise before or after work, you still have to deal with the darkness. The Nathan LightSpur RX is a relatively inexpensive way to help ensure that you're seen while exercising in the darkness. The very bright LED lights, which resemble high-tech spurs, attach easily to your shoes. You can change the color to red, green or blue, and choose either a constant light or a strobe setting.
