(AP) – Pennsylvania’s government ethics agency said Tuesday a retired state Game Commission official who had once been considered for the agency’s top job agreed to pay a $75,000 ethics fine over his side business helping land owners negotiate natural gas drilling leases. The State Ethics Commission said the penalty was imposed as part of a consent agreement with William Capouillez, who in 2014 was among several people being looked at to become the hunting agency’s executive director. His job as director of the Bureau of Wildlife Habitat Management involved oversight of gas leases for state game lands, while he moonlighted by running a business that helped landowners make deals with some of the same drilling companies. The ethics commission said he improperly received a valuable benefit by virtue of his state job, but noted he had informed his higher ups of his outside work. Capouillez’s lawyer, Bob Davis, said the commission originally sought millions of dollars in fines and restitution. “It is a vanishing percentage of what they said they were after,” Davis said. “There are times when it’s just smarter to just bite the bullet and get it over with.” Capouillez spent three years at the Department of Environmental Protection before going to work for the Game Commission in 1993. His salary was $84,000 when he retired in May 2015. The ethics commission said the statute of limitations was a “critical factor” in the case, restricting what of his conduct it could review and how much of a penalty it could order. “We note that there are times, such as in this case, where the legally correct result is not particularly satisfying,” the commission wrote.

Based on what we did here in Beckley that first year when the community came together, it was spread across the state, he said. Im proud of that because we started it here in my department. Although Target Red is something Blume can point to and claim as his own, its not what hes most proud of in his police career. We set a record in West Virginia last year with the lowest number of (highway) fatalities with 268, he said. Before that, it was between 330 and 400 a year. Target Red, Click It Or Ticket, DUI checkpoints, safety seat installations, distracted driving laws and everything each of the highway safety programs work for help reduce that number each year, he said. Everything we do is to reduce the number of fatalities, he said. Even the DUI checkpoints. The idea is not to arrest someone who comes through the checkpoint. Its to deter the behavior. The whole idea is awareness. Blume celebrated his 21st anniversary with the Beckley Police Department Sept. 1 and his 22nd year in law enforcement in August. A decade ago, he was joined on the force by his nephew Jamie, James H.
