Letters to the editor I Letter to Editor: Every election, some folks wonder if it is worth the trip to the voting booth. But this election, you have a chance to vote on an amendment that is good for outdoors people. It is good for tourism. It is good for the economy, and it is good for our kids, because it makes sure they will always have a chance to know what it is like to participate in hunting and fishing. And now each Minnesota citizen has a chance to vote yes to amend the state constitution to preserve hunting and fishing for future generations. As another Minnesota sporting game season is upon us, it is necessary to remind voters they have a chance to preserve their heritage and long time participation in hunting and fishing. We love the outdoors and the environment here in Minnesota. And we love fishing and hunting too. They are activities a lot of us do with our families. That is why everyone, not just sportsmen and women, should vote yes on Amendment Two. If this amendment fails Minnesotans tradition and heritage of fishing and hunting will be banned and it will be part of our history instead of an ongoing tradition. All mainstream hunting, fishing, sporting and environmental preservation groups support question two and polls indicate more than 80 percent of Minnesota support it. This amendment preserves our right to fish and hunt in Minnesota forever. It still will be managed for public good. And it just shows that we recognize how essential fishing and hunting is for Minnesota's economy and our tourism industry. Many jobs - and, in fact, whole regions of our state - are dependent upon tourism and outdoor activities. "It is appropriate to preserve those activities on economic grounds. Just as importantly, it is appropriate to preserve fishing and hunting in our state constitution. It is our basic compact between the citizens and their government. Of course it is appropriate to preserve an activity in which nearly every Minnesotan enjoys and participates. Besides, who wouldn't want to take a kid fishing someday? A coalition of groups representing more than 250,000 Minnesotans, claims the ballot measure has overwhelming support but they expected the outside money and influence to come in late and try to change peoples minds. Animal rights activists oppose this amendment. Their view was rejected by the MN Legislature. In fact, it is a viewpoint so extreme that is the best reason to pass this amendment. Wayne Pacelle, VP of the Humane Society of the U.S. quoted by the AP: "If we could shut down all sport hunting in a moment, we would" That's why we need Amendment Two. Whether you are an angler, or a hunter, or just care about Minnesota's environment and the outdoors, please vote for Amendment Two on Nov. 3rd. If you donot vote on this amendment, it will be counted as a "No" vote. Sportsmens groups from the following area are urging you to vote "Yes" on Amendment Two this Nov. 3rd. Alberta, Appleton, Benson, Chokio, Correll, Holloway, Montevideo, Morris, Odessa, Ortonville and Willmar.
