HRLL THERTRE 283-1140,469 Main St., Quincy, CA Visit us at Game wardens new TV show a success The "Wild Justice" televi- sion show launched Sunday, Nov. 28, to great success. With 2.1 million viewers, it was the highest-rated series premiere in the network's history, ac- cording to the National Geo- graphic Channel, and ranked sixth in all of cable. The preview that aired the hour before also reached 2.1 million people. Parts of the premiere episode were filmed locally and featured wardens from northern California. The show has moved to its regular time slot: Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. Each week, camera crews accompany California game wardens on patrol working everything from poaching in- vestigations involving deer, wild pigs and abalone to ille- gal drug use/possession, stolen vehicles and illegal marijuana cultivation. "'Wild Justice' shows the public the divoro and dan- gerous job of a game warden," said Nancy Foley, chief of the Department of Fish and Game's law enforcement divi- sion. "The show will also be- gin to tell the story of what is happening to our wildlife at the hands of poachers and polluters." Although the show focuses on the very small percentage that break the law, the series also recognizes hunters and anglers who practice respon- sible conservation of the fish and wildlife populations and their habitats. The producers of the show, Original Productions, also produce the hit series "Dead- liest Catch," "Ice Road Truck- ers" and "Axemen," among others. Their intensive pro- duction style puts the viewer in the middle of the action as wardens conduct investiga- tions of every sort. They even attached camerasto the col- lars of warden K9s to get a viewpoint unlike any other. "We hope 'Wild Justice' will give viewers a greater ap- preciation for California's fish and wildlife resources and the brave men and women who are sworn to pro- tect them," Foley added. For more information, see the National Geographic Channel's "Wild Justice" website, justice. Dinosaurs! A perennial favorite, al- most everyone has had at least a passing interest in di- nosaurs or fossils at some time in their lives. To learn more about the age when these creatures roamed the earth, plan to attend a pre: sentation on the subject given by retired science teacher and paleontology hobbyist Don Dailey of Quincy. Besides studying dinosaurs and fossils, Dailey has also been on an actual dinosaur dig in South Dakota. This free event is sponsored by the Plumas County Muse- um and is suitable for all ages. It will be held at the Plumas County Library Com- munity Room in Quincy Thursday, Dec. 9, at 6:30 p.m. The program will be about 90 minutes in length. Call the museum at 283-6320 for more information.
