Many take part in Iowa’s 1st dove hunt since 1918

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says the state’s first dove hunting season in nearly a century attracted about 22,000 hunters. The 70-day season began Sept. 1 and ended Wednesday. Dove hunting had been outlawed in Iowa since 1918 but was legalized by the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Terry Branstad this year. Efforts to allow the hunting of doves has been emotional in past years, and in 2001 then Gov. Tom Vilsack vetoed a measure approved by the Legislature because he said most Iowans opposed the change. The DNR says it will conduct a survey of the more than 22,000 people who registered as hunters to determine how many actually took part in the hunt and how many doves they killed.

Nebraska Regent Fears For Player, Fan Safety at PSU


November 10th, 2011 by Jim Field

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – A University of Nebraska regent says he fears for the safety of the Cornhuskers’ football traveling party and fans at Saturday’s game at Penn State. He wants assurances a security plan is in place to protect them.  Regent Tim Clare of Lincoln said he began worrying about safety while watching televised coverage of the scene in State College, Pa., after coach Joe Paterno’s firing Wednesday night. He said Penn State has a raucous atmosphere on a normal football Saturday, and the school owes Nebraska answers.  Penn State police chief Tyrone Parham wrote in an email to the Associated Press on Thursday that his force is “taking extra precautions and has added additional resources for the game.”  Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne declined to comment.
