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.

- Piedmont’s embattled ex-mayor is leaving City Council
By Kurtis Alexander - Thursday Aug 31, 2017
Piedmont’s embattled councilman and former mayor, who gave up his honorary mayor’s post Sunday after being criticized for insensitive Facebook posts, announced Wednesday that he’s stepping down from the City Council altogether. Jeff Wieler, 65, told The Chronicle that he had become a distraction for the city and wanted to do the right thing. His critics had claimed that it was not enough for him to resign as mayor, a mostly ceremonial job that is assumed by one of the council members and not an elected position. “Frankly, I’m tired of being a problem for the city,” Wieler said.
