January 2007 That proposal... will allow
anyone in the county to shoot and kill
coyotes for a minimal fee.

County leaders first introduced
the idea of a bounty back in January.

The reason behind it is to
*REDUCE* the ever growing population
but instead it's *RAISED* something
else..mixed public opinion.

And this one was a flat out

gets this strikeout as the game stayed
scoreless into the fifth inning.

Finally, in the bottom of the
fifth the Vikings would manufacture a
run as Zach Hurt drives one to left.
Shortstop Ian Reynolds get a glove on
it, but the hit is just enough to drive
home Tyler Deacon for the eventual game
winning run. *CG final Hidden Valley
