Police dressed as archers dressed as golfers?

This is getting more ludicrous by the day. I heard that "someone" suggested having our police department pose as hunters while sitting in tree stands. They wouldn't be hunting, but would be on a stakeout for yahoos and poachers during our five months of killing deer. Jody Maddock had told us at the June 22 meeting that he has had archers dress like golfers on golf courses, to blend in more. My question is would our police be dressed as archers dressed as golfers?  Comedy writers need to come to Mt. Lebanon for inspiration.

A question came up about Twin Hills. Who do we call if we see tree stands in Twin Hills? Here is the answer. Call 911. Describe the location of the tree stand to the dispatcher. They will determine whether to dispatch a Scott Township officer or Mt. Lebanon officer.

After the last meeting, Commissioner Dave Brumfield told a few residents that Mt. Lebanon doesn't  have the manpower to control speeders, but they can do something about the deer. Here we go again, putting Mt. Lebanon's finest on deer patrol.

If I could just get a decent night's sleep...
The Mt. Lebanon commissioners have informed us that the locations of the private properties agreeing to archery will not be disclosed to the public. I have decided to publish those locations as soon as I find out where they are. Since changing the blog to "invite only" status, the web traffic for my website,www.lebocitizens.com has increased. I will be publishing those locations on lebocitizens.com, where it is accessable to all. I will also maintain a list on this blog. If any Lebo Citizens readers learn of a location, either submit it as a comment or email me privately at EGillen476@aol.com.

Archery season starts in sixteen days. In PA, tree stands can be put up two weeks before the season begins. If folks are waiting to display their "Not In My Yard" signs, they might want to display them within the next couple of days.

One more thing for now. "Hunter access property cooperators are not required to allow the use of stands." As Jody Maddock said, they can hunt from decks and second story windows.

OK, I lied. This is the last comment for now. The quote in my 1:37 AM comment came from here. https://pagamecommission.wordpress.com/2014/12/30/hunting-for-tree-stand-regulations/

This is crazy talk about dressing up Mt Lebanon police and hunters. What if people to decide to dress up like deer? All hell is going to break loose.

Speaking of crazy, I was just talking to a NC refugee whose next door neighbor put up two huge traffic quality signs in his backyard making it a "Copperhead Preserve". There were lots of copperheads (the venomous snakes) in her neighborhood and he didn't want folks from the periphery neighborhood trail coming up on to his private property by mistake. He apparently even had some photos of the copperhead snakes on the signs and gave them names. This was one reason she moved back to his refugee town that t I live in now after only a year in NC.

Shaking my head, I wonder how the NC Copperhead man would fare in Mt Lebanon.
