Cyrus issues bear alert: They are nigh, about 38 miles east up the LBN

That good man, Bill Mardis, the Commonwealth-Journal's editor emeritus. wries again about bears in the paper over there. Bears are becoming commonplace in Pulaski County, he reports.
By Ed Waggener

Cyrus sends a link to a story in the Commonwealth-Journal, the daily newspaper in Somerset, on the latest sightings of bears, both black (numerous, latest April 24, the April 28 story says) and white (three total sightings, maybe of the same bear), in the Somerset area.

The story is well worth reading, if you are into bear sightings. It tells about how frightened the Pulaski Countians of the animals, how they have been sighted there since 1900 (which is before they sighted the UFO at Fishing Creek back in the 50s; but that's another story), and how some theorize they're coming out of Big South Fork.

The story does not reveal that the bears are just passing through, to bear heaven in Adair County.
