 U.S. FISH AND WILDLIFE SERVICE REGIONAL DIRECTOR APPOINTED
 FOR THE NORTH CENTRAL REGION
 MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL, July 20 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director John Turner announced the selection of Sam Marler as regional director for the North Central Region, headquartered at Ft. Snelling, Minn.
 Marler, assistant director for International, Legislative and Public Affairs in Washington, D.C. since 1986, will assume his new post in mid- July. He will replace Jim Gritman, who retired after a 28-year federal career.
 The North Central Region includes Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin.
 "Sam Marler will be missed in Washington but his experience will be a tremendous asset in the field," Turner said. "In a heavily populated region with a wealth of natural resources; a large, active hunting and fishing community; and a wide range of fish and wildlife conservation issues, his background will serve the Fish and Wildlife Service well."
 Marler began his service career in 1977 as an assistant regional director in Denver. Prior to that assignment, he served as director of communications for the U.S. Department of the Interior in Washington, D.C. In 1989, Marler received one of the department's highest career service citations, the Meritorious Service Award.
 A native of Rapides Parish, La., Marler is a graduate of Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge. He served as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps for five years. He and his wife Susan have three adult sons.
