The Nooseletter
Vol. 4 - No.12 December, 2022 Nooseletter Home SUBMIT AN ARTICLE

Ho Ho Ho! Christmas time is finally here. I am so looking forward to Christmas, especially as I now look a lot like Santa Claus. My wife and I just celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary by going camping with our grandson at the beach south of Oxnard. It was a much-needed disconnect from the world.

This is the final Nooseletter of 2022. This makes about 3 3/4 years that I have brought you the monthly Nooseletter. I hope y'all are enjoying it so far.

As y'all know, I am an avid animal rights advocate. There are so many situations happening that we need to get involved in to save America's wildlife; here are a couple of examples:

Our featured article is a call to action. We all need to call on the Biden administration to enact an emergency listing of wolves in the Northern Rockies.

In addition, there too many horses in New Mexico that are being rounded up, and at times, shot and left for dead. Our government is doing nothing at all to stop this from happening.

Anyway (stepping off the soap box), enjoy the Nooseletter.

Fight to Save Our American Wildlife
~Wolf Conservation Center
This is a pivotal moment for reinstating Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections for Gray wolves in Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming, where they’ve been stripped for years, resulting in an all-out assault on wolves across those regions. Especially since 2021, when emboldened politicians in Montana and Idaho passed a slew of controversial laws and regulations. All of these aimed to decrease the wolf population with longer hunting seasons, higher limits, and year-round trapping seasons. In Montana alone, hunters responded during the 2021-2022 season by killing 273 wolves, including Yellowstone wolves, considered the "most-viewed" wolves worldwide. Montana and Idaho's newly enacted policies were not going unnoticed by wildlife advocates...
Joe Meek
~Dakota Livesay
Mountain men were known for their tall tales. The subject of this week's story was a master of the yarn. That, combined with integrity made him a person liked by everyone.

Joe Meek was born in Virginia in 1810. He had little use for school. So, at the age of 16 he left home. Later Joe did teach himself to write, and he read the classics of his day. But, when he wrote, his spelling and grammar were highly creative to say the...

Search for Wyatt Earp
~L.A. Times
Wyatt Earp, his gun-fighting days long over, was one of many real-life cowboys who, at the beginning of the 20th century, came to Hollywood in hopes of recreating their wild West on the silver screen. The cowboy lifestyle having virtually disappeared, their knowledge of cows and horses was invaluable to early filmmakers. They were real cowboys seeking vicariously to become “reel” cowboys in the fantasy world of moving pictures. Earp and his fellow cowpokes...
Benson to Tombstone
~Marshall Trimble
Soon after he arrived arriving in Tucson in October 1878, J.D. Kinnear started Kinnear’s Express stagecoach service (every four days) to the new boomtown of Tombstone. By the next year Kinnear had formed the Tucson & Tombstone Stage Line, later known as the Arizona Stage and Mail Line, to provide service to Tombstone and soon thereafter on to Bisbee.

The stagecoach line headed south, following the San Pedro River...

Horses Are Being Found Dead
~T.J. Wilham
Horses Gone Wild: Target 7 investigation reveals no state agency can enforce the killings of wild horses.

Hundreds, if not thousands, of wild horses are roaming the New Mexico desert and are being rounded up and, at times, shot and left for dead.

The federal government says New Mexico is overcrowded with them, but advocates say they're wrong and should be left alone...
Hole in the Wall Hideout
~Nikola Simonovski
The Old West, or the Wild West, is most certainly one of the most romanticized periods in the history of the United States. The Wild West occurred when settlers and pioneers attempted to populate the territories west of the Mississippi River, and it continued after the Civil War, lasting around two centuries.

The Old West produced iconic stories from that time, presenting an endless well of ideas for movies, novels, comic books and all kinds...
Native Spirit Culture
~Old West Remembered
The Jingle Dress Dance began with the Mille Lacs Band of the Ojibwe Tribe in the early 1900s and became prevalent in the 1920s in Wisconsin and Minnesota (Great Lakes region) in the US and in Ontario, Canada.

The story is that the dress was first seen in a dream. A medicine man’s granddaughter grew sick, and as the man slept his Indian spirit guides came to him and told him to make a Jingle Dress for the little girl. They said if the child danced in it, the...
