68 -- Sunday. Fee 28 1993 -- News Record STATE Tioga County to monitor offenders IPrvu JVELLSBORO. Pa -- Tioga Coun- ly hopes to soon join the growing ranks of Pennsylvania counties using electronic monitoring and in-house detention of non-violent offenders. Dave Stager, cruef county proba- uon officer, said his department has submitted a request to the Pennsylvania Commission on Cnme and Delinquency for start-up funding for the program The initiative is-part of the county's effort to implement new intermediate punishment programs and follows the formation of an Intermediate Punishment Board to replace the former Prison Board Stager said the program could be imposed on those convicted of moior vehicle violations and minor property offenses Electronic monitoring involves requiring an offender to wear a device that monitors his movements and can be programmed to allow that person to leave home certain hours of the day to go to work or school Stager said the county hopes to use the program to keep prisons from becoming overcrowded A prisoner participating in the monitoring system must agree to pay a supervision fee. Drug testing would also be pan of the system. Stager said the monitoring system gives the judge more sentencing options and would "offer treatment and rehabilitation for an offender rather than the punitive nature of incarceration-*' Jeffery Hubert a criminal justice planner with the Commission on Crime and Delinquency, said 36 counties have or are currently seeking authority to impose electronic monitoring programs. No coyotes killed in most of two-day hunt By Kelly P. Kissel FRENCHVILLE. Pa -- Neither coyotes nor protesters showed up Saturday for a hunting camp's second prize coyote hunt. "Hunters tracked several coyotes but were unable to shoot at any of trrem. Animal-rights activists, who harassed marksmen last winter, were absent at the two-day event in Cameron, Centre, Clearfield, Clinton and Elk counties. "I don't think they can stand this damned weather, those damn vegetarians," said Charles "Stub" Gardner of Clearfield. His mounted coyote, perched atop a coin-operated bowling game, was the only coyote in sight at the Mosquito Creek Sportsmen's Association in Clearfield County. The hunt was to end at 9 p.m. Saturday. As dusk approached, none of the 217 hunters who paid a $o fee had returned with a coyote. JThe $1,085 take was dedicated to the association prize's fund, and awards were to be given for the largest coyote (50^ of the total), second-largest (30^) and smallest coyote (20^). :3f no coyotes were killed, the nBney was to go to the association's game-feeding programs. With no kills last year, $615 went into the feeding fund Several hunters said a 2-foot snow cever made it difficult to walk in the wiods. They said coyotes they had spotted were able to outrun or out- Kidnapping suspect released on bail fox them. Coyotes are particularly wily, and hunters said the animals are among the most difficult game to track- Coyotes have made a comeback in Pennsylvania. The association began organizing coyote hunts out of concern for shepherds and deer hunters. A northeastern Pennsylvania farmer last year lost more than 100 sheep to the predators. One Clearfield County farmer said he has lost about 1,000 sheep to coyotes during the last 17 years. Doug Park, a hunter from Driftwood, Cameron County, said coyotes kill game that is desirable to hunters. "If I shoot one, that's one, less fawn that's going to be killed, one less grouse and one less turkey," Park said. Mosquito Creek President Ray Savel said the weekend was a success, despite the lack of a coyote carcass."The camp signed up 139 new members, giving it njearjy 3,000 It also sold T-shirts, beer and liquor and "probably made $2,000 on gambling," Savel said. The association has a permit for games of chance. Protesters last year said hunting coyotes was cruel and unsports- manlike because, prizes were planned for the smallest kill. On Friday, Savel refused to accept a registered letter from a protest organizer. "We don't accept j u n k mail anymore," he said. .
