ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A New York state lawmaker is demanding a federal investigation into New York state's care for the disabled following a recent Associated Press story that revealed the case of a man infested with maggots in a state-run group home.Democratic Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi, of Utica, told the AP on Saturday that he is asking the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to investigate the group home and other state-regulated facilities for the disabled where there have been allegations of abuse and neglect.A copy of the report was obtained by The Associated Press, which found that New York state is not alone in making it difficult for members of the public to access records about allegations of abuse and neglect in state-regulated facilities for the disabled.

- Giants blow lead and lose again as sellout streak ends
By Henry Schulman - Tuesday Jul 18, 2017
Giants blow lead and lose again as sellout streak endsThe inevitable finally occurred Monday night when the Giants announced a paid crowd of 39,538 for their 5-3 loss to the Indians in the opener of a 10-game homestand.The Giants blew a two-run lead and lost largely by screwing up a fundamental play that winning teams convert 999.5 times out of 1,000.The Giants lost for the 14th time in their past 18 home games, not the stuff you print on ticket brochures.“We’re very proud and appreciative of fans who did what no other National League fans have done, 530 games and six-plus years of sellouts,” Baer said by text Monday night.No matter the team’s criteria, the consistency of their crowds has been impressive since the streak began Oct. 1, 2010, the opener of a three-game series against the Padres that settled the National League West in the Giants’ favor.Matt Moore, who entered with the worst ERA in the National League at 6.04, demonstrated renewed poise and command, holding the Indians to a Yan Gomes solo homer.Moore was leading 3-1 and on the verge of a scoreless fifth when Bradley Zimmer hit a two-out comebacker off Moore’s glove.The error also extended the inning and allowed Francisco Lindor to tie it 3-3 with a broken-bat single.A throwing error by Hwang contributed to the Indians’ fourth run, enough to doom Moore to his fifth straight defeat at home and 10th overall.
- Bald eagle threat: Lead ammo left behind by hunters
By MARY ESCH, Associated Press - Sunday Jul 16, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Bald eagles have made a remarkable recovery across the United States since the pesticide DDT was banned 45 years ago, but the majestic birds are still dying from another environmental poison: lead from bullets and shotgun pellets in wildlife carcasses left behind by hunters.In New York, which has been a leader in the bald eagle restoration in the Northeast for four decades, state wildlife researchers have documented a growing number of eagle deaths from lead poisoning in recent years.In New York, lead poisoning was confirmed as the cause of death in 38 of 336 bald eagles brought to a Department of Environmental Conservation lab near Albany between 2000 and 2015, said state wildlife biologist Kevin Hynes, who does the necropsies."Eagles are doing very well, their recovery is a great success story largely supported by excise taxes paid by hunters" on lead ammunition and guns, said Lawrence Keane, senior vice president of the National Shooting Sports Association.Virginia wildlife advocate Clark said that rather than a ban on lead ammunition, his group is seeking a public education campaign so hunters are aware of the problem and how they can help.
