- Lawmaker seeks probe after AP reveals maggots in NY facility
By DAVID KLEPPER, Associated Press - Saturday Aug 12, 2017
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.
- Graceful menace: States take aim at non-native swans
By MARY ESCH, Associated Press - Sunday Sep 17, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — With its snow-white plumage and elegant posture, mute swans are exalted in European ballets and fairy tales as symbols of love and beauty. But to many wildlife biologists, they are aggressive and destructive invaders in U.S. habitats and must be wiped out.Native to Europe, the mute swan has multiplied in New York, the upper Midwest and along the Atlantic coast since it was imported in the 1800s to adorn parks and opulent estates. Citing threats to native wildlife, plants and unwary humans, six states now have swan-removal policies that range from egg-shaking to shooting or gassing adult birds.New York is now on the third draft of its anti-swan program.
- 49ers’ RB Hightower making a healthy contribution
By Eric Branch - Wednesday Aug 2, 2017
49ers’ RB Hightower making a healthy contributionIn 2012, Tim Hightower’s first season out of the NFL, teams regularly contacted his agent to inquire about his services.[...] by 2014, when Hightower still wasn’t fully recovered from the knee injury he sustained in 2011, the calls nearly stopped.[...] Hightower, 31, took advantage of it after going more than four years — 1,484 days to be precise — between regular-season carries after he sustained a torn ACL with Washington on Oct. 23, 2011.Before signing with the 49ers in April, Hightower, who ranks 19th among active running backs in rushing touchdowns (32), enjoyed a two-season career renaissance with the Saints.With the 49ers, he’s expected to assume a backup role behind Carlos Hyde and fight for carries with a group that includes rookie fourth-round pick Joe Williams.Did he ever experience an I-did-it emotional moment after he finally returned to the NFL in 2015?Hightower says his arduous four-year absence created a resolve and he now wants to end his career “stronger than when he started.”[...] that would be an accomplishment given the promising start to his unique career.Hightower went to the Super Bowl as a rookie with the Cardinals in 2008, ranked second among running back in receptions (63) in 2009 and averaged a career-best 4.8 yards a carry in 2010 before his knee injury the next season sent him on a odyssey searching for medical answers.During his ordeal, Hightower underwent multiple surgeries, while accumulating countless frequent-flyer miles.Hightower spent his abbreviated 2011 season as the starter in Washington with 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, who was the offensive coordinator, and 49ers running backs coach Bobby Turner.Hightower says he was fortunate to learn from legends at an early age:[...] as far as the running backs and our meetings, he brings it every day.[...] Turner makes it clear that Hightower was signed to play meaningful snaps, not merely be a mentor.
