Alaska Inmates Helping Feed The Hungry
« on: December 30, 2005, 08:43:14 AM »
ANCHORAGE, AK—Inmates at an Alaska prison work farm are helping butcher moose that were struck and killed by trains this winter along 68 miles of tracks. The meat will be processed by prisoners at the Point MacKenzie Correctional Farm and distributed to soup kitchens and other charities serving the needy under a joint effort by the state Department of Corrections, Alaska Railroad and Food Bank of Alaska.
Railroad officials say the stretch of train track north of Anchorage where the moose will be collected has the highest number of moose kills in the railroad's 611-mile system. They say 183 moose were killed last year by trains statewide. Of those, 63 were in the new inmate project corridor.

Under the agreement, railroad workers will take the moose carcasses to the nearest crossing, where inmates supervised by a corrections officer will pick up them up. Prisoners will then grind the moose meat and divide it into 1-pound packages for the food bank to distribute among some of the 300 charities it serves across the state. One moose can yield more than 300 pounds of ground meat.
The only purpose of bread is to hold meat!

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
