The 'history' of Winnipesaukee ice outs dates back only 128 years

To The Daily Sun,

In the Saturday, March 19, issue of The Daily Sun, an article about ice-out on Lake Winnipesaukee states "... that the three earliest ice-outs in history have taken place in the last seven years..."

That should read, "...that the three earliest ice-outs in recorded history have taken place in the last seven years...." since records have only been kept for 128 years, a tiny fraction of the time that Lake Winnipesaukee has been in existence.

It's very possible that earlier ice-outs have happened in Winnipesaukee's history.

Just my two cents.

Lynx also in danger if people are allowed to trap & shoot bobcats

To The Daily Sun,

Most state Fish and Game personnel are hunters and trappers. They support and facilitate the killing of wildlife.

The bobcat needs to be left alone, not "managed."

Many people cannot tell the difference between a bobcat and a lynx. Therefore, many endangered lynx are also going to end up dead if killing bobcats is approved.
