    I can’t help but wonder about the reasoning for holding a hearing in Garden Valley on a CUP Application that will impact the residents of Gardena and Brownlee? Do Garden Valley residents really care about a “Bird Hunt for Pay” operation at Gardena (acreage reaches all the way up to Brownlee), where farm raised birds are released on private property to be hunted? I am already inundated with 70 wild turkeys that Fish and Game offers no feed or removal for. What kinds of birds will be released into the wild? What kinds of diseases may they carry and spread? Which facility/hatchery are these birds coming from? How will the operators insure all private birds remain on private property? Lots of questions I have as a Brownlee resident, yet Planning and Zoning makes it near impossible to be heard. I will comb through the recent issues of the Idaho World to see if I missed the notification of this hearing in the “Happenings”…
