Filing a Car Crash Police Report

I had a fender bender today with a guy that first tried to cut into my lane. This first happened where Beddington Trail to Deerfoot goes from 3 to 2 lanes. I was in the middle lane, he came flying in on the right at the last second into a space not big enough for his F-150 truck. He proceeded to ride the shoulder next to me. I was kinda in both remaining lanes, he backed off and followed me. I stayed in the right lane, heading up to 64 ave. He went passed me on the right lane. I change lan...

In Praise Of The .30/06 Cartridge

Outdoor Life: After more than a century of flattening the world’s biggest, meanest, and tastiest game animals, the .30/06 Springfield remains an incredibly well balanced, versatile, affordable hunting cartridge. With modern ammo it shoots 100- to 200 fps faster than it used to. If it was good enough to stop lions, rhinos, buffalo, and elephants 100 years ago, it’s probably good enough to stop deer, elk, and moose today. He makes his case with unction when comparing the ballistics to 6.5 Creedmoo...

Ask the Lawyer: Is there any defense if your dog bites someone who enters your yard?

Q: Our terrier, Jessie, bit the neighbor’s hand, but he (the neighbor) climbed over the wall to get into our yard – without our knowledge or permission – supposedly to help Jessie during the rains. The next day our neighbor went to a doctor. Are we financially responsible? If so, for what? -G.E., Lomita Ron Sokol A: Some states have a rule that the dog has to have shown prior propensity for violence before the owner is held liable for a dog bite. California, however, enforces strict liabilit...
