"Success is never guaranteed, but we are hoping for the best." Hikers in the Wheeler Peak Wilder- ness may see a helicop- ter carrying equipment and possibly bighorn sheep as the department conducts the sheep trap- ping and relocation project. The department and the U.S. Forest Ser- vice have agreed that using helicopters is the least disruptive method to accomplish bighorn trapping operations in wilderness areas, which normally are closed to all motor- ized vehicles.

Submitted by PATRICK RAMIREZ/LMS Counse/or In the cartoon series, Tom and Jerry, the cat and mouse re- lentlessly hurt each other physi- cally in a manner that is unfortu- nate, but normal moments of an- ger and uncaring. As adults and children we watch these cartoons without giving much thought if it is bullying or not. With the 2014-5 school year underway, every parent, teacher and child knows the word: "bul- lying", but many do not know the definition of bullying as de- fined by Olweus Bullying Pre- vention Program: an aggressive behavior that is~ intentional and involves and imbalance of power. Most often, it is repeated over time. Too carelessly, adults and children utter every hurt and fight as bullying before there is proof as to what actually hap- pened. Once all facts are gath- ered many school incidents turn out to be "teasing" or "equal bal- ance of power." As a result, it is not a bullying incident. When it is not really bully- ing, kids miss out on a chance to learn to cope with minor conflicts on their own. Parents and school personnel need to provide the opportunity for our youth to stand up for oneself, but this can only be achieved through posi- tive role modeling. Enough of generational bickering ! Enough of bad language towards others! After all, children's behavior is modeled after what is learned at home and at school! We should not follow the examples Tom and Jerry set. While they are aggressive to- wards each other and intention- ally hurt each other physically over and over, it is not bullying as it is not an imbalance of power.

The large channel catfish range in size from 18 to 20 inches, and larger. "We are always looking to expand public fishing opportu- nities," .Departmertt Fisheries Chief Mike Sloane said. "When anglers in the Villanueva area reached out to us to request more opportunities to fish, we were happy to be able to help." Villanueva has long been a trout-fishing destination. The department regularly stocks the stretch of river flowing into the park with rainbow trout during the winter. Trout prefer cooler water temperatures, so the de- partment does not stock trout in the area during warm summer months. Anglers can fish at Villanueva year-round since cat- fish will now provide an excel- lent summer fishing opportu- nity. Catfish tolerate a range of temperatures, but prefer warmer waters. They can be lured eas- ily with bait at water tempera- tures between 60 and 72 degrees, but they stop feeding when the temperature drops lower than 40 degrees. The department plans to start stocking this stretch of the Pecos regularly with catfish from April through October, and will continue to stock rainbow trout November through March: Additional big catfish waters around the state include Bataan, Blue Hole Park Pond, Bosque Rdondo, Carrizozo, Chaparral, Conoco Lake, Corona, Dennis Chavez Pond, Escondida, Estancia Park Lake, Eunice, familiq Goldhill Outpost 1000 Birchfield Street * Lordsburg, NM We are righti#CgdC~odlot~e~ Truck Stop GUN DEALER We Buy Used Guns!
