As they wait for a court ordered rewrite of congressional district boundaries, candidates for Congress face the possibility they have already campaigned in places they will never represent.

That may happen because those places might join another congressional district when the rewrite wraps up.

“It’s tough because there are literally five kazillion scenarios,” said Judy Herschel, 40, of Susquehanna County, 10th Congressional District Democratic candidate. Rep. Tom Marino, R 10, Lycoming Twp., will face Bradford County Commissioner Doug McLinko for the Republican nomination. The winner will likely face Herschel.

The doubt about district boundaries exists because the state Supreme Court ruled Jan. 22 the existing congressional district map unconstitutional because it favors Republicans. The court ordered the General Assembly to write a new congressional district map by Friday and Gov. Tom Wolf to sign one by Feb. 15. Supreme Court to stay the ruling, but Justice Samuel Alito rejected the request Monday. State legislative leaders say they’re working on a new map.

In the meantime, the congressional candidates said they can only keep campaigning and hope redistricting doesn’t change the districts too much.

Former state revenue secretary Dan Meuser, 53, of Kingston Twp., a Republican 11th Congressional District candidate, said he hopes the district changes little because its voter registration is almost balanced between Republicans and Democrats. For now, he’s concentrating on activities that redistricting won’t affect, such as fundraising and honing his message.

“The idea of going into wait mode doesn’t make any sense,
the north face ice jacket Congressional candidates face possibility of district boundaries changing
” Meuser said. Senate seat held by Democratic Sen. Bob Casey, the field to replace him is wide open.

In addition to Meuser, Republicans running in the 11th include state Rep. Stephen Bloom, R 199, Cumberland; Berwick Councilman Andrew Schecktor; custom home building and remodeling company chief operating officer Andrew Lewis of Dauphin County; former Deputy State Attorney General Joe Peters of Wyoming County and white rights activist Sean Donahue of Hazleton.

Democrats include former Gov. Ed Rendell’s agriculture secretary Denny Wolff, from Columbia County; Air Force veteran Robert Alan Howe of Cumberland County and former Hazleton Mayor Mike Marsicano of Hazle Twp.

Herschel thinks she will remain in the 10th district and Wolff thinks he will remain in the 11th. Their home counties have historically been part of the district they want to represent, they said, though nothing is guaranteed.

“I think a good thing is when you live in the middle of the district, you’re in a pretty good position to still be in the district,” Wolff, 66, said, noting Columbia’s central location in the 11th. “We just don’t know what other counties might be in it. My best advice is you just continue forward with your campaign and (eventually) . you’ll know what the new lines are.”

“This whole episode is unprecedented so I’m unsure how helpful history will be as a guide,” Bloom, 57,

the north face apex Conti Cross Keys Inn Closing After 52 Years In Doylestown

He just never anticipated the public reaction to the announcement the restaurant will close Jan. 1.

“It has become a public debate and it wasn’t intended to be,” the 66 year old Conti said.

Some people feel Conti should have preserved the restaurant at the intersection of Routes 611 and 313. They question how a gas station could ever replace the restaurant.

Amoco officials promise to build a station with a mini market that will resemble a colonial building.

The public reaction comes partially because of the success of the vision of Frank Conti, Walter’s father, who opened the restaurant in 1943. Frank Conti, an immigrant, wanted to create the aura of a historic inn run by a family with deep roots in the area.

Of course, the sign features the date 1758. Nearly two centuries before Conti came along, an inn was founded on the site and it was operating as a hotel when Conti bought it. A friend in public relations designed the sign with the Conti name around the numbers 1758. Over the years, the family expanded the restaurant, which has been the site thousands of romantic dates, beautiful weddings, and business meetings that left the office atmosphere far behind.

“We made it historic,” Conti said. “We took that number and put the Conti’s name around that sign. We’re the history of the place.”

Conti said the restaurant had about 30 employees.

The original building is only a quarter of the present structure and much of the interior was destroyed in a fire in the early 1900s, Conti said.

Conti said the restaurant is not on any historic register. “I think people are disappointed that we are closing and then ask why are you selling to an oil company,” he said.

That fits in with the theory of Alan D. Williams Jr. of Doylestown, who said he blamed himself for the restaurant’s closing.

“Instead of Saturday night at Conti’s, I went to that new place’ or I used my entertainment book or a newspaper coupon,” he wrote in a letter to the editor. “I killed Conti’s by saving it for those special occasions now it will be gone, replaced by a gas station.”

Conti said he decided to close one of his two restaurants two years ago when he started to think about retirement. The family also owns the Pipersville Inn in Bucks County.

His two sons have their own careers Joe is a state representative from Doylestown and Michael is managing the Nittany Lion Inn in State College and did not have an interest in taking over.

So Walter put feelers out for both, but there was more interest in the Cross Keys Inn because of its prime location.

Conti received interest from numerous national restaurant chains, mostly steak houses and fast food, developers thinking about office or retail space and discount warehouses.

Most, like Amoco, felt a need to destroy the building. It did not fit the need for the restaurants, which wanted to design their own spaces, or retail, which needs a wide open space.

the north face beanie Conservation groups remain wary of Ryan Zinke’s motives

One year later, Zinke’s harshest critics imply he should have driven to work in a 40 ton seismic vibration truck to symbolize the Trump administration’s efforts to expand oil, gas and metal extraction on the public’s federal lands.

Those less harsh say it’s too soon to keelhaul Zinke. They still hope he can live up to the legacy of Theodore Roosevelt, the president whose conservation ideals Zinke often invokes. They note that when Zinke took office, he instantly ended long brewing efforts within the Republican party to transfer federal lands to state ownership. Zinke, a lifelong hunter, staunchly opposes selling or shedding public lands.

With that issue silenced, hunters, anglers, hikers and other outdoor recreationists in 2018 are focusing on the next steps: How best do we care for our public lands? Who and what defines access to these lands? Will our government pay for the lands’ long term care?

And besides asking himself, “What would Teddy Roosevelt do?” when mulling access to remote public lands, perhaps Zinke should ask: “Would TR drive a Winnebago or pedal a fat tire bike?”

Much has changed the past 100 years, after all. Zinke oversees about 500 million acres of public lands, which cover roughly one fifth of the nation. Geological Survey; Bureau of Reclamation; Bureau of Land Management; Bureau of Indian Affairs; Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement; and the Office of Surface Mining, Reclamation and Enforcement.

Hunting groups are uneasy after Zinke’s first year as Interior secretary, fearing he’s more likely to exploit wild places than protect them.

Whit Fosburgh, president/CEO of the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, supported Zinke’s appointment as Interior secretary., saying in December 2016:

“Zinke is someone we can work with. He’s shown the courage to buck his own party on the issue of selling or transferring public lands that provide 72 percent of Western sportsmen access to great hunting and fishing. . We won’t agree with him on everything, but we think he will listen and has the right instincts.”

When contacted Wednesday, Fosburgh gave Zinke a split grade: an ‘A’ on access and a ‘D minus’ on conservation. “We want the public to be out on these lands, but Americans deserve quality lands that offer quality experiences. That requires good science based conservation programs.”

Fosburgh credited Zinke for immediately ordering the Park Service, BLM and F to identify ways to expand recreational access to public lands. And in August, the Interior Department acquired 4,176 acres of private land along the 16,000 acre Sabinoso Wilderness Area in New Mexico, which had been landlocked by private ranches. That deal opened the Sabinoso to everyone. It’s no longer the exclusive playground of surrounding landowners.

Fosburgh also credits Zinke for a November 2017 decision to open an additional 132,000 acres to hunters and anglers in 10 national wildlife refuges. Fosburgh said the challenge now is to keep the nation’s public lands accessible. Budget cuts the past 30 plus years have neglected and abandoned roads and trails, causing locals to think federal agencies can’t manage what’s entrusted to them.

“If this administration truly believes in public access, it must make sure there’s federal money to support these projects,” Fosburgh said. The program uses no taxpayer dollars. Rather, it invests earnings from offshore oil and gas leasing.

Land Tawney, president/CEO of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers, also supported Zinke’s nomination.

“Mr. Zinke (is) a potential ally of sportsmen and other outdoor recreationists,” Tawney said in December 2016.

“We’re gratified the Trump administration is listening to our concerns, and showing a willingness to act in the best interests of the American people and our irreplaceable public lands legacy.”

Fourteen months later, Tawney isn’t so optimistic.

“We should all be very concerned,” he said when contacted Wednesday. “He’s done some positive things on access, but not enough to even come close to the assaults he’s allowing on public lands, waters and natural resources.”

Tawney said BHA is glad the Trump administration restored restrictions to prevent mining in Bristol Bay, Alaska. He said it’s clear that Scott Pruitt, the Environmental Protection Agency’s administrator, responded to overwhelming public opposition.

“That was a step in the right direction, which is in contrast to Zinke acknowledging a million comments to keep our national monuments intact, but then rolling back protections on 2 million acres the largest in history at Bears Ears and Grand Staircase, under the veil of public access,” Tawney said. “Hunters already had access to those places, but now all those acres are more accessible for extractions.”

Tawney also worries about efforts to open new copper mines near Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. He thinks talk of “energy domination” instead of “energy independence” could create more “Jonah Fields.”

Jonah Field is a large natural gas field in western Wyoming with nearly 500 wells. Roughly 14 percent of a 45 square mile area has been bulldozed for roads, well pads, pipelines and buildings. Those operations cut the area’s mule deer herd by 60 percent, and disrupt migration routes for pronghorn antelope.

Tawney and Fosburgh also criticized Zinke’s tabling of a multistate sage grouse management plan that required over a decade of collaborative, multistate efforts to keep these birds off the endangered species list. “That’s really a shot against the collaborative, scientific process,” Tawney said.

Fosburgh shares those concerns. “So far this administration has done nothing positive for conservation,” he said. “It’s all about energy dominance and development. There has not been a single conservation initiative. That’s frustrating. Maybe this will be the year they roll out positive conservation ideas.”

cheap the north face jackets Convent bids farewell to 52 nuns

DANVILLE At 102, Sister Mariette plans to move in April with other Sisters of Christian Charity from Holy Family Convent to New Jersey.

“I can’t say I won’t miss this place,” she said.

On Saturday, Harrisburg Diocese Bishop Ronald Gainer celebrated a Mass of thanksgiving for all the years the sisters have been in Danville. Twenty visitors, including some from New Jersey, attended along with sisters from the convent.

“The diocese grew up with these sisters,” he said of the diocese, celebrating its 150th anniversary. “The Sisters of Christian Charity have been such an integral part of the mission of the church in teaching and health care and other diverse services,” he said.

He described the retired nuns as a “powerhouse of prayer. They have given their lives to active service and in their retirement years to prayer and working for the church. Although they won’t be here physically, we know they will continue to pray for the diocese,” he said.

The Sisters of Christian Charity have owned a retirement home for nuns for 119 years since 1899 in Danville.

Geisinger bought the Holy Family complex, along Montour Street, for $4.5 million in 2013 and has converted the fifth and sixth floors of the main building into workspace for about 119 employees.

The sisters were given time for their new home to be built with Geisinger employees to eventually use the entire building for office and conference space. Additional parking spaces have been constructed.

Two sisters Sister Anthony and Sister Gracemary have lived at the convent for 37 years.

Sister Anthony, 96, joined the order when she was 18. The Philadelphia native taught school and worked at the Camp Hill hospital. She served as treasurer of the Danville convent for 21 years. “It will be a change after being here so many years. I will miss everything in general,” she said.

Sister Gracemary remembers going to a circus in Danville along with seeing a play at the middle school and watching heritage festival demonstrations. “We took a train ride one year,” she said. The sisters also enjoyed going to workshops at the Montour Preserve. “There were wonderful people and a wonderful experience,” she said.

Also from Philadelphia, she became a nun at age 20 and worked in housekeeping at a Wilkes Barre academy and the mother house and retreat in New Jersey.

“We’re grateful to have a place to go,” said the sister, now 86, who does housekeeping work in Danville but plans to retire with the move.

Sister Mariette has lived in Danville since 1993 and joined the sisters when she was 15. Originally from Williamsport, she taught in New Jersey and Pennsylvania and worked in housekeeping in Montoursville.

“The sisters are so good around here,” she said.

As part of the Geisinger purchase, about 115 graves of sisters were exhumed and moved to a Danville cemetery. “We held a farewell service for them,” Sister Mariette said.

Sister Allan, who assists local coordinator Sister Mary Mark, said their new home will include more than 100 sisters and will be an intergenerational facility with sisters who work living with the retired sisters from Danville. They have been told there will be day trips to nearby historical sites. Sisters will be able to enroll in courses at a nearby college. “It will be a nice change for us,” she said.

She works in the business office and before that oversaw the kitchen. Having lived three times in the past 10 years in Danville, she studied for her degree in interpreting for the deaf at Bloomsburg University. She worked for the diocese of Philadelphia with deaf and hard of hearing people with HIV and AIDS for 13 years.

Sister Mary Thomas got her first glimpse of Danville as a student from Wilkes Barre when her dad would visit the former Beaver mansion that had been home to the sisters. The sisters lived in the mansion, which no longer stands, until the current main building opened in 1968.

She taught school in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and started the activities program at Holy Family Convent. She spent 1995 through 2000 in Danville and returned in 2007.

The 91 year old said the move was “a surprise” when first announced. “I made a vow to go anywhere and do anything. This is where God wants me to be,” she said. “We’re going back to where we began.”

Sister Mary Mark said the sisters plan to hold an open house in early April “to say goodbye to those we know so well.” In her ninth year as local coordinator, she served as an educator for 38 years mainly as a principal in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Despite Saskatoon high downtown office vacancy rate and a recovering economy, the consortium building three towers on Parcel Y at River Landing has started the first of two office towers.

The prime riverfront site, which had become symbolic of delayed and shifting proposals and changes in ownership over a decade, is now helping alter the downtown skyline.

The condominium tower has risen to about half of its eventual 20 storeys next to the just opened Remai Modern art gallery. The adjacent Alt Hotel is also taking shape. Preliminary work has begun on the office tower site, where digging is set to start in January.

the north face waterproof jacket congressional maps are illegal

HARRISBURG A divided state Supreme Court on Monday ruled that Pennsylvania’s congressional maps are illegally gerrymandered and ordered the General Assembly to immediately begin redrawing them.

The 4 3 decision comes less than a week after the justices heard oral arguments in the lawsuit brought by the League of Women Voters last year.

The justices made clear they want the new map in place in time for this year’s congressional elections. Rep. Tim Murphy.

“I strongly believe that gerrymandering is wrong and consistently have stated that the current maps are unfair to Pennsylvanian,” Gov. Tom Wolf said after the decision was announced. Supreme Court to issue a stay to halt the state court’s decision.

The ruling focuses solely on the congressional districts which are designed using a different process than state legislative districts.

Under Pennsylvania law, the districts of state lawmakers are developed by a bipartisan committee. The congressional maps are spelled out in state legislation, passed by the General Assembly. In this case, the congressional maps were passed in 2011 by a Republican controlled Legislature and signed into law by a Republican governor, Tom Corbett.

In the decision, the majority justices found that the map “clearly, plainly and palpably violates the Constitution” of the state.

“Today’s ruling by the State Supreme Court is a partisan action showing a distinct lack of respect for the Constitution and the legislative process.

While the Senate Republican leaders pledged to fight the ruling, Sen. Supreme Court should intervene. They said that they based their arguments on the state Constitution and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court in reaching its conclusion, pointed to state law. Supreme Court has traditionally refrained from stepping in to tell state courts how to interpret their own laws. Supreme Court considers their implications. Supreme Court from intervening, the Pennsylvania gerrymandering challenge would be the first successful effort to get congressional maps declared illegal and replaced, said David Gersch, the lead attorney for the League of Women Voters.

“This is a tremendous day for Pennsylvania,” Gersch said, calling the contested maps “the worst maps in Pennsylvania history.”

A Commonwealth Court judge found in December that there was evidence that the states had been manipulated by Republicans to give their party an advantage. But he found that there was nothing illegal with their efforts.

The matter was then fast tracked by the state Supreme Court,
the north face boys jacket congressional maps are illegal
which consists of five Democrats and two Republicans.

Attorneys representing legislative leaders didn’t dispute that political factors were considered in making the state’s congressional maps. They said that’s always been the case and that the state law allows it.

In the lawsuit, the League of Women Voters alleged that the last three congressional elections have demonstrated that Pennsylvania’s congressional maps are out of whack. In a state where there are 4 million registered Democrats and 3.2 million registered Republicans, only five of the state’s 18 members of Congress are Democrat.

Four of the Democrats on the state Supreme Court Debra McCloskey Todd, Christine Donohue, Kevin Dougherty and David Wecht ordered the Legislature to issue new congressional maps by Feb. 9 so that the primary election scheduled for May 15 can take place with the revised legislative boundaries. The court’s ruling added that if the maps are completed by Feb. 9, the governor has until Feb. 15 to approve them. If those deadlines are missed, the court will come up with its own redistricting plan using the evidence provided by the Commonwealth Court’s review of the case.

Justice Max Baer was the lone Democrat on the court to object to the decision. In a separate opinion, Baer said he agrees that the existing maps are unconstitutional, but he said trying to replace them would create a risk of serious disruption of the election process. Baer said he’d rather see the maps replaced for the 2020 election.

Both Republican justices Chief Justice Thomas Saylor and Justice Sallie Mundy disagreed with their Democratic counterparts. Saylor wrote that the Commonwealth Court’s review of the existing maps raised “substantial concerns” about whether the existing maps are legal. However, he said the court should not try to replace the maps “in such an extraordinarily compressed fashion,” especially without providing the public without some specific guidelines about what would make the maps legal. Mundy signed onto Saylor’s opinion but added her own, as well, to call out her fellow justices for taking such a dramatic step without clearly explaining how the problems with the maps are to be corrected.

“The Court’s order fails to give essential guidance to the General Assembly and the Governor, or this Court on how to create a constitutional, non gerrymandered map,

” she wrote.

the north face sale jackets Continental Divide snowshoer survives near

For the past month, Layne has been marching along the Montana Idaho border as it follows the divide from below West Yellowstone to the Centennial Valley. The original goal for this first leg of a three year adventure was to reach the Anaconda Pintlar Mountains before winter gave way to spring. But while most of Montana’s valleys turned green, Layne was dealing with too much snow in the mountains.

Not 50 miles into this year’s attempt, Layne’s first tent shredded in a wind storm, forcing an early exit for repairs and resupply. Deep powder conditions drastically slowed his progress around Henry’s Lake. But things were better than last year, when a blood clot in his leg nearly killed him. Or the year before that, when a malfunctioning camp stove gave him carbon monoxide poisoning. Both those expeditions stalled barely a week into the season.

“I’m growing old and I’m growing tired, and it’s gotten more difficult for me,” said Layne, 64. “That’s what life is. I love my wife. I miss my wife, I miss my dogs, my home. I miss all that. But I can’t stop. This is my final stab, all the way along the Continental Divide, up to the Canadian border.”

Storms and illness had limited him to just 10 miles along the flank of Taylor Mountain between March 26 and last Monday.

Layne just had a visit from some snowmobiling friends and was trying to evaluate a tricky route about three quarters of a mile away. They concluded it would require ice climbing gear, which he didn’t have, and one of the snowmobilers volunteered to bring some up the next day.

“I said, ‘OK, I’m going to take my camp over there and see if it’s doable,’ ” Layne said. “If not, I’ll do a fast jaunt down to the trailhead, go to Helena and get the gear.

“I’ve learned over the years not to trust the weather forecast totally, but I didn’t do that that morning. That was my mistake my fault. I had a forecast that didn’t call for what happened.”

While he was breaking down his tent, a gust of wind hit just as he was shifting his footing to hold it down.

“It yanked out of my hand and it was gone. What was required to do at that point was to head down the mountain and get another tent. I didn’t know the blizzard was coming in. So I said to hell with it I’m going to keep going. I went down the avalanche chute to traverse around the area and try and find the tent.”

Layne didn’t find the tent, but he did get a better view of his route. It didn’t require crampons. He opted to retrieve his backpack and do a closer reconnaissance.

Assuming it was a brief squall, Layne hunkered down by some trees. He planned to move to a more sheltered tree line at the next break in visibility. A snow packed cloud with winds blowing about 70 mph refused to relent.

“I couldn’t see 30 feet in front of me,” Layne said. that I have a cave 7 feet deep and 4 feet wide. But I was running out of energy and soaking wet. I knew I was in trouble.”

The worst sign was his difficulty getting zippers to work. It indicated hypothermia was impairing his coordination, and his decision making would be affected, too. He set up his “bedroom” a sleeping bag on a thick insulation pad inside a bivvy sack. Then he took off all his clothes and crawled inside.

Not wearing wet clothes inside a sleeping bag is good safety practice. But in his exhaustion, Layne set up the bedroom wrong. He put the bag and bivvy sack on top of the pad, instead of putting the pad inside the bivvy sack.

After darkness fell, the wind shifted from south to north, blowing straight into the mouth of Layne’s snow cave. As it did, it packed snow between the pad and the sleeping gear, which melted and chilled him inside all that insulation. He spent the night jogging in place and shadow boxing in the bag, desperate to stay warm. A 16 ounce water bottle by his head froze solid, indicating temperatures around zero.

the north face hoodies Continental Divide snowshoer survives near
his wet clothes froze into a block. He was too cold to reach for his tracking beacon, and couldn’t concentrate enough to remember how to send the SOS message. All he could focus on was moving to stay warm and refusing to die.

“Once it was daylight, I had to find the beacon under the mound of snow covered stuff and push the SOS button,” he said. “I had to relearn how use it, and it took time to do that. I sent a message out a simple message to my wife and few others who would be able to help me. What I didn’t know was they’d been trying to get to me since the night before.”

Less than an hour later, Justin Applebee of West Yellowstone hopped off his snowmobile and told Layne it was good to see him still alive. Applebee and colleague Andy Peterson had mounted a rescue at dawn to find him, bringing warming pads, hot tea and dry clothes.

“They took hold of me on each side, and I wondered ‘why are you holding on to me?’ ” Layne said. “It was just a small incline to snowmobiles, about 200 feet away. But I walked five or 10 steps and realized what they already knew. I was going to need help to get there. The strength wasn’t in me.”

Anyone who attempts dangerous pastimes must reconcile how much risk they can take. The debate may start at the kitchen table with the maps, and might end in a snow cave with a stuck zipper.

“In the wilderness, you’re focused on reality pressing in on you from all sides, where every little crystal on the snow is glinting and every gust of wind penetrates your body and mind,” Ammons said. “That’s the paradox, the intensity that draws you in is also the thing that can kill you. The very fact that the adventure experience is real and has consequences, is why it’s so intriguing and compelling. You never know exactly where the edge is, although the more experienced you are, the better you think you know. Most fatalities thought they knew where the edge was and were wrong.”

So why do it? Mount Everest explorer George Mallory famously said, “Because it’s there.” But Ammons added there’s a lot more to that quote.

“He had just spent hours explaining why he thought climbing Everest was the most important human endeavor, a way of pushing human limits upward over obstacles, struggling metaphorically toward the purity of heaven. And some reporter didn’t get it and kept asking him why? It was a disgusted, toss off cryptic phrase that throws it all back on the other person. The irony is that’s what always gets quoted. It’s a koan that people have accepted without analyzing it, from a guy they know nothing about.”

For Layne, snowshoeing Montana’s Continental Divide is a goal he’s been building toward in more than a decade of incremental adventures. He’s a retired carpet cleaner and Vietnam veteran, with plans to visit the place where his wife, Carleen’s parents met in Hawaii when he’s done with this challenge. He hopes to make it to Monida Pass, just a couple of dozen miles along the divide from his latest pullout, before ending this season’s leg.

“One thing I’ve learned through all of this stuff is do not stop,” Layne said. “I cannot let this one sit on my head it just becomes a monster. People think forgetting is the solution, but that’s not me. Pushing beyond it is where things get better.

“And in my mind, at this moment, I have this picture,” he added. “This mountain with snow cornices, a little climb, and on top of that climb is another small peak. The north face of the Centennial Mountains is incredibly beautiful. I want to see what it looks like on that peak over there, where I almost died. God I love to see them during the winter. I want to see the snow. I can’t tell it any further than that.”

Flooding on the Androscoggin River, a black bear in a suburban back yard and how to grab a skunk without getting blasted are some of the subjects that New Hampshire Fish and Game will face in the premier of North Woods Law: New Hampshire, judging from the trailer. on the Animal Planet channel.

The show features conservation officers with New Hampshire Fish and Game in their various duties. Cameramen have been following teams of officers since last June, after the program was approved by the department and the Executive Council.

The Maine program emphasized law enforcement but the New Hampshire program plans to include more wildlife biology and conservation issues.

The state won’t be paid for the program, but Engel Entertainment of New York City, which also produced the Maine show, will make a $2,000 payment per aired episode to the New Hampshire Wildlife Heritage Foundation, the nonprofit partner of Fish and Game.

The contract, as approved by the Executive Council, was cautious about the state’s image, ensuring “two opportunities to review each episode of the program or series for legal and factual accuracy . (and) to ensure that the episode does not contain objectionable material that may, at the department’s sole discretion, jeopardize the safety and security of the department or cause damage or embarrassment to the department.”
