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.

By Connor Letourneau - Tuesday Jul 18, 2017
Golden State is expected to name former Warriors point guard Aaron Miles as the head coach of their NBA Gatorade League affiliate in Santa Cruz, a source confirmed with The Chronicle. Miles, 34, comes to the Warriors after spending last season as an assistant coach under Joe Dooley at Florida Gulf Coast. Before helping the Eagles to a 26-8 record (12-2 Atlantic Sun) and a second straight NCAA Tournament berth, Miles served one season as Kansas’ assistant director of student-athlete development. A pass-first point guard, Miles is the all-time assists leader for both Kansas and the Big-12. After going unselected in the 2005 NBA draft, Miles totaled 16 points and 24 assists in 19 games with Golden State.
