Notebook: Greensburg man named to SCI committee

A Greensburg man is one of two Pennsylvania residents named to Safari Club International committees.

Larry Rudolph will serve as vice chair of the SCI government affairs committee over the next year. In that role, he will help monitor legal issues affecting wildlife management, hunting rights and SCI members.

In the recent past, his committee has helped defeat a lawsuit brought by the Fund for Animals and other groups that challenged the right to bring legally-harvest game back to the United States.

The other Keystone state man named to a committee post is Franklin’s Michael Drenowski. He will serve as a member of the SCI convention committee, acting as a liaison between SCI and the exhibitors who attend the group’s annual convention, set for Jan, 21-24 in Reno, Nev.


Charlie Meck, the noted fly fisher and author of several books on fly fishing, will speak at the Oct. 8 meeting of the Tri-County Trout Club.

The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. in Fischer Hall in Burrell Lake Community Park.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
