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.

- 10 new lakefront condos hit market at Lake Tahoe
Monday Dec 12, 2016
A flurry of construction and redevelopment in north Kings Beach has brought better roads, more retail and the Tahoe Beachfront Residences, 10 lakefront condos just released to the market. Dale Cox Architecture designed the townhomes, GLA Morris served as general contractor and Marti McElhinney of the Open Door handled the interior. Ten units with lake views, open floor plans and designer finishes sprang from this collaboration. Coffered wall panels establish a Craftsman or farmhouse element in the great room anchored by a chef’s kitchen with Thermador appliances. Turn to the home’s two gas fireplaces and three heating zones to stay cozy on windy winter nights. Sunlight kisses the suite’s gabled and picture windows while illuminating the spa bathroom’s walk-in rain head shower and soaking tub. A laundry room on the entry level serves as a place to shed snowy or sandy accessories before unwinding upstairs. A homeowners association tends to the development obsessively, and the continuous maintenance commonly associated with a vacation home isn’t a concern for Tahoe Beachfront residents. Grill, mingle around a fire pit, sip on something at the bar or simply lie in a beach chair with a book as the lapping waves provide the soundtrack.
