Re: “Bow Fishing the Lowly Carp

wow you might think a writer could find a better subject than killing creatures for sport . killing for sport and eating your prey is ok by me but the senseless killing of carp by bowhunters....( it isnt fishing) with the idea of making them into fertilizer is unsportsman like to the nth degree.
why do carp have such a low self esteem in the usa ? its because man polluted and continues to pollute the waters and carp being a hardy fish ( thats one of the reasons they were brought over here in the first place) were some of the only fish able to survive mans polluting ways. hence the term trash fish

while it may be a stretch.... carp are responsible for the infrastructure of the united states as we know it today . Brought over as a food fish for the immigrants ( who were used to eating them in their native countries) those immigrants built the roads and railways of the united states and helped connect east/west north south of the usa.

please dont continue to aggrandize the useless killing of animals, fish etc

Re: “The Writing on the Rocks: Petroglyphs in Our Back Yard

A reader called earlier this week with concern that the following sentence in the above story about the boulders on which petroglyphs are found was potentially inaccurate:

"They are often located on the flat faces of boulders left where prehistoric Lake Bonneville once was."

The possible inaccuracy was the origin of the boulder, and whether the boulders were instead displaced from the Snake River Canyon. A little digging turned up another possible scenario: that the boulders were actually glacial deposits.

So King went to the expert he'd originally interviewed in his story, Boise State's Mark Plew, an expert in the field of Great Basin archaeology.

According to Plew: “A majority of the Celebration Park petroglyph boulders are associated with the Bonneville Lake episode.”

Just for good measure, we consulted David Wilkins, chair of the department of Geosciences at Boise State. His answer:

"Some 14,500 years ago, Lake Bonneville reached its highest level, covering about 50,000 square kilometers of Utah with some overlap in Nevada and Idaho. To give you an idea, Salt Lake City airport would have been about 1,000 feet under water. Lake Bonneville didn't cover this part of Idaho, though. The boulders (vernacularly referred to as "melon gravels") are deposits from the Bonneville Flood, which resulted when an earthen barrier at Red Rock Pass (east of Malad City and northwest of Preston) gave way about the time of the highest lake level. About half of the lake poured out through this breach, likely over several months, with flow rates of up to one million cubic meters/second and velocities of up to 70 mph. This is likely the 'Lake Bonneville episode' that Dr. Plew refers to. The floodwaters entered the Snake River Plain at American Falls and traveled down the Snake River Canyon, gouging out large rocks and carving canyons as it went. There are other fields of these melon gravels elsewhere in the floodpath. Just past the canyon constriction at Swan Falls, the floodwaters would have been very fast as it surged and slowed as it entered the wide flats around Celebration Park, depositing those boulders."

For more on the subject, check out Wilkins' Powerpoint presentation at

Re: “Taking Cycling Indoors for the Winter

Yeah - it would be nice to live in San Diego or somewhere else warm so I could train outside all year, but in New England, I spend a lot of time on the trainer too. Fortunately, I am a big fan of the Office, so I do ok. Here are some more suggestions for making your trainer riding more interesting:…

Re: “A New Perspective

I'm thrilled to have a young man like Salim now calling Boise home. I remember talking to his high school basketball mentor Canaan Chatman about Salim years ago and I know he completely understands what it means to excel and be part of a community.

Our paths may have crossed at a young men's leadership weekend I helped produce in Joseph, Oregon. That is where I met Canaan. Canaan's Portland basketball mentoring program is named Inner City Players... I've supported the program for the past 9 years.

Re: “Mountain Bikers Find Surprise Solace in Colombia

The coffee you get in the "backcountry restaurants" is pretty bad because the good export quality coffee gets sold either at Juan Valdez coffee shops or exported. This generates more profit and in a poor country people are not willing to pay the price foreigners are willing to pay for good coffee. That's why...
