Texas Game Warden Field Notes –

Filed under: Fishing & Hunting — Freddie Keel @ 6:23 am

Galveston County Game Warden Bobby Kana received an Operation Game Thief call on April 1 advising him that three individuals at the South Jetties in Galveston were in possession of 30 bull redfish. (Legal daily limit is one bull redfish per person.)

Warden Kana notified Wardens Vu Nguyen and Mack Chambers of the alleged violations and requested their assistance in locating the subjects.

While in route to the South Jetty, Warden Kana made contact with the complainant who advised him that the three individuals had loaded up into a grey pickup and were leaving the area.

Warden Nguyen contacted Galveston Police Department and advised them of the violations and vehicle description. Within minutes, Galveston PD responded that they had the vehicle stopped.

Wardens Kana, Nguyen and Chambers arrived at the location and found a pile of red drum in the back of the vehicle. The suspects were in possession of 29 redfish, of which 28 were bull reds (28 inches or more), one black drum and one jack crevalle.

The three individuals were transported to the local Justice of the Peace court where the JP assessed fines totaling $13,500.

Civil restitution pending.

(these fish are not good to eat and to be fined $13,500.00)

About 9:15 p.m. on March 25, Concho County Warden Brad Clark was in the Concho County Sheriff’s Office when a 911 call came in from Kennedy Park Marina at Lake O.H. Ivie.

The caller reported having heard a boat crash and could hear someone calling for help but, because of darkness could not see anything.

Warden Clark, Runnels County Game Warden Lane Pinckney and Coleman County Game Warden William Heath responded to call and hurried to the lake.

When Warden Clark arrived at the scene, which happened to be only a few hundred yards from the lake patrol boat ramp, he found a young man on shore who was visibly shaken but not injured. The young man claimed his friend was hurt bad but he couldn’t find him.

Warden Clark located the driver, deceased, lying beside a wrecked bass boat.

The boat passenger, who suffered only small bruises and a few scratches, told wardens he and the boat operator – both from Oklahoma and on a fishing trip with friends – had been fishing all day and were headed to the boat ramp after dark. The boat driver was following the GPS on the boat at night, without any lights other than the red/green navigation and white anchor light.

The passenger was not sure how fast they were going but did know that the boat was on plane and traveling at a high rate of speed when they ran into the shoreline.

The boat went airborne and struck several trees and rocks before coming to rest on the bank.

Both occupants were ejected from the boat. Neither was wearing a life jacket.

Toxicology results are pending for the deceased boat driver.

On April 5, Lamb/Bailey/Cochran County Game Warden Lance May stopped a vehicle in Littlefield for failure to maintain a single lane of traffic.

When Warden May made contact with the operator of the vehicle, he observed the man appeared to be very confused and in and out of consciousness.

Concerned for the suspect’s medical state, Warden May called for an ambulance.

Running the suspect’s identity through law enforcement computer records, Warden May discovered the suspect had an active warrant for assault out of North Carolina and an active warrant for first degree murder out of Colorado.

The suspect was transported to Lamb County Hospital in Littlefield, and later transferred to the Intensive Care Unit at UMC Hospital in Lubbock.

Upon release he will be taken to the Lamb County Jail to await extradition.

On April 1, Val Verde County Game Wardens Roger Nicholas and Bradley Durst filed citations on a group of four fishermen on Lake Amistad for being over their possession limit on black bass.

The out-of-state fishermen had been here for a week and were in possession of 58 bass over the limit.

Resources were seized and donated, and criminal charges and civil restitution are pending.

Tom Green County Game Wardens Jason Huebner and Cynde Aguilar arrested a suspect for felony Boating While Intoxicated.

The suspect had three previous DWI convictions, one BWI conviction in 2004 and had served a prison sentence for the crime.

A mandatory blood draw was conducted and results are pending.

The felony case will be filed in district court.

Hudspeth County Game Wardens Ricky May and Cody Pokorney were patrolling the Rio Grande when Pokorney noticed something out of place on the river bank.

Further investigation revealed a bucket holding a gill net, a gill net set in the river, and several people upriver, beating the water with sticks.

After a brief conversation with the water beaters, who now were on the Mexican side of the river, the two game wardens, with assistance from two Border Patrol agents, pulled approximately half of the set net before cutting the net and letting the commercial fishermen from Mexico (pulling from the other side) keep the rest.

They confiscated 250 feet of net.

April 3, Grayson County Game Warden Michael Hummert was checking fishermen on the Red River below the Lake Texoma Dam when he asked a subject for his fishing license.

The subject confidently presented a license.

When asked for photo identification, the subject appeared nervous.

The subject initially denied having any ID, but finally produced an ID card.

The name, date of birth, and address on the ID card did not match the license.

The subject admitted to using a friend’s license.

He was cited for fishing under the license of another.

April 1 was a busy day for Tarrant County Game Wardens Clint Borchardt and Patricia O’Neill and Federal Game Wardens Mike Merida and James Markley. While the wardens were checking taxidermy businesses in the Fort Worth area, Warden O’Neill received a call from a local informant regarding four individuals using a gill net on a creek.

The wardens were nearby and responded within minutes.

Upon approach, wardens noticed a man wading, slapping the water with a large stick.

They’d watched for about 10 minutes when a small boat appeared and two of the subjects retrieved the gill net from the water.

The subjects were a bit surprised when the wardens approached and told them to come to shore

All four subjects received citations, and wardens confiscated 20 white bass, other various game fish and the approximately 500-foot gill net.

When the wardens asked the owner of the net where he got it, he responded, “Mexico.”

The wardens continued their taxidermy checks, discovering one undocumented black bear hide as well as a green heron found in a freezer. The bear and heron were seized.

To end the day, Wardens Borchardt and O’Neill made another netting case on four subjects using a cast net to take game fish from the Clear Fork of the Trinity River.

Citations were issued to all four subjects.

While patrolling Peyton Creek near Wadsworth on April 2, wardens Barry Eversole, Aaron Koenig and David Janssen noticed oil sheen on the water near the FM 521 boat ramp.

Using a drag, the wardens located a large object in the middle of the 10-foot-deep creek. They suspected it was a vehicle.

The next day, the wardens went back with side-scan sonar and located what appeared to be two vehicles.

They passed the information to the Matagorda County Sheriff’s Office, who notified the DPS dive team.

On April 6, the DPS dive team arrived at the creek and pulled out two pickups, one reported stolen from Freeport in 2008, and the other reported stolen from Houston in 1998.

On March 31, Medina County Game Warden Jeff Benson was monitoring radio traffic as he was traveling from Devine JP office to the Castroville JP office.

The area had seen numerous burglaries occurring during daytime hours and a description of a suspect vehicle came across the radio.

Within five minutes of the description going out, the vehicle crossed Warden Benson’s path.

Warden Benson followed the vehicle till it blew through a stop sign and was traveling 55 mph in a 25 mph zone.

Warden Benson stopped the vehicle and noticed four flat-screen televisions in the back seat and a large flat-screen propped up against the passenger’s knees.

Warden Benson held two males for deputies, who were able to immediately solve two burglaries and possibly clear past burglaries.

Bastrop County Game Warden Kris Bishop was checking fishermen around Bastrop Lake when she encountered a couple from out-of-state and a Texas resident fishing from the pier.

As she checked their licenses, she noticed a bass on the stringer. The fish was protected because of the slot limit in effect on Lake Bastrop.

She advised the anglers of the slot limit, and the bass was released. Before she left, Warden Bishop marked the measurement of legal bass on the anglers’ cooler because they did not have a ruler.

Later that night, Warden Bishop received a call from TPWD Communications with information from a citizen that someone at Bastrop Lake was keeping bass protected by the slot limit.

Bishop asked for a description of the possible violators and realized that these were the same people she had made contact with earlier.

When Warden Bishop arrived back at the lake, she found the same people she had talked to earlier. They had possession of two illegal bass.

When she asked if they had measured the fish, they responded no, because it was too dark on the pier and they were going to measure them later.

Citations issued.

Hill County Warden Douglas Volcik was on patrol on the Brazos River on April 2 when three subjects in a bass boat asked for his assistance.

The subjects told Warden Volcik their boat was somehow taking on water and their bilge pump wasn’t working.

Warden Volcik instructed them to head to the Kimbell Bend boat ramp to try to get the boat out of the water before it sank and brought one of the subjects to the park so he could get the trailer in the water and ready when the boat got to the ramp.

The boat, filled with water, almost submerged by the stern as they tried putting it on the trailer.

After getting the boat out of the water and draining, Warden Volcik asked the boaters if they had hit anything.

The boat operator said he thought they had hit a stump as they entered the mouth of the Nolan River.

One of the subjects said that the boat appeared to have a crack on the bottom.

All of the boaters were OK, and expressed appreciation for the help.

Am I Old Fashion?

Today, one of my favorite daughters and I were visiting.  I ask her where I might have VHS tapes converted to DVDs.  She immediately picked up her cell phone to call her husband, thinking he might have the answer.   I suggested she not bother him at work.

We currently have a building contractor working on our home and today he fired a worker for abusing the use of a cell phone while on the job.  Then, I sorta got on my soap box regarding the use of cell phones while at work for non emergencies and how it could adversely affected productivity.

Jokingly, she called me old fashion.   And she is exactly correct.  She correctly pointed out that nearly everyone has a cell phone and they are used at work.  Some even have them implanted in their ear.  (what a site)  Now this daughter is one pretty smart lady and pegged me correctly, but I go back to the old saying:  eight hours work for eight hours pay!

The following comes from varies forums on the www regarding cell phone policies while at work.

Yes, we do. It was implemented after a woman constantly was on personal calls on her cell. She even had the gall to tell her manager to hold on until she finished her call!! I’m surprised she didn’t get fired

======

The offices I have worked at generally say business calls are okay only and any personal calls except for emergencies can be done during lunch hour only. I never had a problem with that rule. Makes sense.

======

Any company I have worked with have had no problem with personal calls as long as you didn’t abuse the situation. As far as cell phones go no one in our office ever had to use them so there were never any “rules” set up to cover them.

However, if someone was using a cell phone constantly I think as an employer I would have to put a stop to it and as an employee I would really have a rash hearing the cell phone ring all the time and causing a disturbance.

======

I worked with someone who kept her cell phone on top of her desk. She was constantly getting phone calls on her cell phone and would answer them like it was no big deal. There were so many complaints about this, she was told not to have her phone on in the office. So, she ends up keeping the phone on her desk but puts it on vibrate so she still knew when she got calls. The nerve of some people.

=======

My company never had a problem with it. As long as you weren’t on the phone all day long. It is so annoying when I go into a store and the cashier is ringing me up and talking on the phone. Where is the manager when you need one? LOL

=======

I have had to tell people to get off the phone in my office. When they can’t concentrate on what needs to be done at work then either they get off the phone or go home for the day (without pay). Usually I have very little trouble with it after that.

=======

We have a number of people in our company that receive and make cell phone calls as if it is their right. The Boss is totally ticked off and has drafted a memo(not issued yet) that tells people to turn off their phones when they come into the plant and gives warnings for abuses – third warning is “fired and out the door”.

=======

the other day I was in the grocery store, I was buying a weeks worth of groceries, the cashier was a young man, his cell phone rings and he stops doing his job and talks to whoever is on the other line for a couple of minutes, I really wanted to walk out, but then again I don’t want to have to go to another store and redo my job, what would you do? I told the young man that he was rude and that I should report him, but being in a rush I didn’t tell. I know I should have.

=======

Does anyone have a policy on use of personal cell phones during regular work hours? Some of our production employees are receiving calls regularly on their cell phones and it’s bothering other employees and obviously interfering with work productivity.

=======

We have a short and to-the-point policy, in memo form, prohibiting the use of cell phones by plant personnel during working hours. It is a safety issue (and a productivity issue) and we took a stand and stopped all cell phone use.

========

Our policy is more stringent. All cell phones must be turned off during working hours (both in the factory and the office).

======

I work in retail and we had a problem with employees stocking shelves with one hand and talking on their cell phone with the other. Didn’t impress the customers much. So we instituded a cell phone policy.
The policy became a problem when it was noted among staff that the GM and his second-in-comand walked around with their cell phones practically glued to their ears. When I explained that they used them for business purposes only. A number of the staff said they had overheard the S-I-C placing bets on the floor with his cell.
Sigh.

======

I handle HR for four small hotels. We have a policy that prohibits the carrying of personal cell phones during work hours. Employees are required to turn off their phones and leave them in their lockers. They may retrieve them and talk to their hearts content during their lunch breaks, but we will not have them distracted from their duties or have their cell phone ringer noise as an annoyance to our guests. And, NO, they cannot carry the phone on vibrate. In case of emergency, the employee can be reached through our main switchboard.

======

As a young LPN, I once had a very strict charge nurse who used the word “inappropriate” all the time. It made me want to do inappropriate things just to hear her say it.

She had very definite ideas about what was and was not appropriate at work. I, on the other hand, thought if you couldn’t have fun at work, don’t work. And my way frequently involved the inappropriate.

But now that I am in a similar position as that charge nurse, I do understand the message she was trying to convey. And while my primary philosophy about fun at work hasn’t changed all that much, there are some things that I actually find inappropriate.

My number one choice of outrageously inappropriate is personal cell phones while giving patient care or sitting at the nurses’ station. Unless you’re expecting or need to make an emergency call, there is no good reason to have your cell phone attached to your ear while you are at work. Use it on your break, but otherwise, put the damn thing away! PERIOD.

======

Hard to see how people can properly do their job when the cell phone is part of their uniform for work and so much of their shift is taken up by personal conversation or texting.

=======

We’re not allowed to use cell phones for personal use, period. I use mine for drug calcs. and things specifically related to work; phone calls or text messages? Nope.

======

Cellphones for personal use should be out of the work scene. We shouldn’t be distracted. I agree with Waitressrn that it should be left in lockers.

======

There is a policy at my facility that strictly prohibits personal cell phone use during shift work, but may use during lunch break only.

======

I would be mortified if I was a patient and my nurse was talking on her cell phone while administering meds or helping me ambulate.

======

I always take my phone with me. I take it so that any of my five children can contact me in an emergency or if they get sick at school. However, I don’t answer it if I am with a patient and when I do I make sure its short and sweet. I do not let it interfere with my duties. I have never had a complaint from a patient or work colleague about this. Most other staff have their phones on them as well. I also take my ipad to work on night duty and watch movies after I have done my work and in between doing rounds and answering buzzers. If I am too busy then obviously I cannot even turn it on. I have never seen any of my work colleagues having a phone conversation whilst they are attending to a patient. We all respect the fact that we are their to work and that patient care comes first. Personal phone calls are made in the staff tea room during break time. On nights we don’t take breaks and are able to sit at the desk. We do what we like in between attending to our patients. I don’t work in America and we don’t have rules about mobile phones. I can see the point about safety issues but I believe they can be used responsibly without compromising patient safety.

=====

Watching movies while you are on-duty? Where is the professionalism here? You could be working on CE’s, doing things for the betterment of your department…there is always something to do on “downtime.”

You go to work to get paid to work, not watch movies. Try to justify it anyway you want, that is stealing from your employer’s time.

==============

In 2001, the city of Honolulu agreed to pay $1.5 million to a man who suffered permanent brain damage after being struck by a city employee who was talking on a cell phone at the time of the accident.

Similarly, a jury ordered an employer to pay more than $20 million when its salesman killed a motorist while using his cell phone between sales appointments.

The large investment firm Salomon Smith Barney paid a $500,000 settlement to the family of a motorcyclist killed by one of its employees making a work-related call after hours on his own personal cell phone.

And when a lawyer struck and killed a teenage girl while driving home from a work meeting — allegedly on a cell phone call with a client — the victim’s family filed a $30 million suit against the employer, claiming the law firm was negligent in encouraging employees to use cell phones without providing a safety policy.

=======

Our daughter is correct: Yes, I am old fashion.

==============

  1. I would love to be Old Fashioned too.

    If work days are 8 hrs and pay per hour, I agree. However, that is not the case in many jobs today. Families need that connection during the day b/c of the tremendous time spent on the job and commuting to the job.

    In addition, employers call employees’ cell phones on the weekends and all hours of the night for work. In fact, the work calls pick up during holiday weekends. In my old job, for some holidays we had to give numbers of where we’d be and when if we were traveling to see relatives. This past Thanksgiving, Dave spent at least 8 hrs on the phone that Saturday and then they called him into the office at 2 a.m. Sunday morning. In this time when people are needing jobs, you work the hours and go in at 2 a.m. if needed with no complaining. But because of this lifestyle, I have no guilt for chatting with my husband on his cell phone during traditional work hours.

    I would love to be old fashioned where Dad gets home at 5:30, families sit down for dinner together (home cooked meal), no answer machine and no caller ID. Oh, and don’t forget the sweet tea and Wheel of Fortune.

  2. We can’t be on our cell phones at work. But, depending on who you are is the determining factor as to who gets in trouble for it and who doesn’t. (I would.). So, I keep mine on vibrate and just text the people I need to communicate with (when the boss isn’t looking). Actually, I text everyone but my “old-fashioned” parents…who have no clue how to text. :)

EPA Blocks Oil Drilling in Alaska

Filed under: Misc — Freddie Keel @ 7:52 pm
Tags: ,

Published by The Heritage Foundation – April 25th, 2011

Gas prices in Santa Monica, CA

There are an estimated 27 billion barrels of oil waiting to be tapped in the Arctic Ocean, off the coast of Alaska. But after spending five years and nearly $4 billion, Shell Oil Company has been forced to abandon its efforts to drill for oil in the region.

With gas at $4 per gallon and higher, one might think that more oil would be a good thing. So what’s the road block? The Environmental Protection Agency. Fox News reports that the EPA is withholding necessary air permits because of a one square mile village of 245 people, 70 miles from the off-shore drilling site. From Fox News’ Dan Springer:

The EPA’s appeals board ruled that Shell had not taken into consideration emissions from an ice-breaking vessel when calculating overall greenhouse gas emissions from the project. Environmental groups were thrilled by the ruling.

“What the modeling showed was in communities like Kaktovik, Shell’s drilling would increase air pollution levels close to air quality standards,” said Eric Grafe, Earthjustice’s lead attorney on the case.

Who at the EPA made the decision? Springer writes:

The Environmental Appeals Board has four members: Edward Reich, Charles Sheehan, Kathie Stein and Anna Wolgast. All are registered Democrats and Kathie Stein was an activist attorney for the Environmental Defense Fund. Members are appointed by the EPA administrator.

President Barack Obama said in his weekly address on Saturday that “there’s no silver bullet that can bring down gas prices right away,” but that one thing America can do is pursue “safe and responsible production of oil at home.” Too bad his words and his actions are not one and the same. Aside for the EPA’s decision on Shell, the Obama administration has imposed a months-long moratorium on deepwater offshore drilling that curtailed domestic production and sent some seven drilling rigs elsewhere.

The Heritage Foundation’s Nicolas Loris recommends the following actions for Congress and President Obama if they truly want to expand access to America’s domestic energy supply:

  • Allow access to domestic reserves. Permitting exploration of reserves in Alaska, Colorado, Wyoming, and federal waters offshore would inject confidence into the market, create jobs, and stimulate the economy.
  • Roll back regulatory burdens on companies. Strapping companies with onerous regulatory processes only hinders access. Litigation opportunities should be limited and the permitting process made more rational.
  • Issue offshore drilling permits. Lifting the de facto moratorium on offshore drilling permits would gain companies access to domestic resources and increase our domestic energy supply.

A TOUCH OF CLASS – A LOT OF FOLKS MISS THESE TWO

Filed under: Misc — Freddie Keel @ 6:57 am

There’s a group of ladies in the Dallas area who make and stuff neck pillows for soldiers coming through Dallas Fort Worth airport.  They go to the airport and meet the incoming planes every week and greet the soldiers coming back for a few weeks R&R, give them a pillow, tell them they pray for them, and thank them for their service.  The lady who took the pictures said everyone was so surprised to see George and Laura Bush recently just standing quietly in the waiting area with others who come to meet the troop planes.  She said it was amazing to watch the faces of the soldiers light up in recognition when they spotted them and that many came over to speak and shake hands.

Too bad he’s not still with us. He’d love to see Jill’s boys riding the big tractor, see Kris’s farm, and fish with G-man. :)

Comment by Cindy — April 25, 2011 @ 8:17 pm

I often thought how much he would have enjoyed the tractor for his gardening.  Instead of having a two acre garden, he

could have had a six acre garden and supplied the entire community with produce.. And yes Kris’s farm plus he would need

to change the name of her kids from ‘concrete kids’ to ????.   And hunt, fish and garden with Garrett… And just talk to KJ about

her life and things she enjoys.  And hunt and fish with Brett.  And Lukie would be special as they have exactly the same eyes.

He would have been best buddies with all the great grand-kids.
