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.

- Allmendinger hoping to duplicate his lone NASCAR Cup win
By John Kekis - Sunday Aug 6, 2017
WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. — Three years ago AJ Allmendinger didn’t want the second Sunday in August to end, so he lingered in victory lane at Watkins Glen International to soak in the atmosphere with his crew.The victory on the road course stamped the Los Gatos native as a threat to win every time NASCAR’s Cup series visits the two twisting layouts on the schedule.With the playoffs looming, he’s 27th in points and needs a victory to qualify for the postseason as the series stops at The Glen, his best shot left to produce that needed result.If there’s any added pressure, he says he doesn’t feel it.Honestly, said Allmendinger, who drives the No. 47 Chevrolet for JTG Daugherty Racing.“The racetrack will always be special, obviously, being my first win, reliving those memories,” said Allmendinger, an expert road racer from his days in open-wheel racing.Ambrose had been dominant in NASCAR’s top two series at The Glen, winning two straight Cup races and four straight events in the second-tier series.The previous year Allmendinger also won on the road courses at Elkhart Lake (Wis.) and Mid-Ohio in NASCAR’s second-tier series, but success at the top level has been elusive.“This year, we’ve been a little off on speed kind of everywhere we’ve been to,” said Allmendinger, who has one top-five finish and four top-10s in 21 starts this year.Xfinity practice on Friday gave a handful of Cup regulars a chance for extra time on WGI’s 2.45-mile layout as they prepared to race in Saturday’s Zippo 200 with an eye toward Sunday.“There’s so much a feel of, ‘I’ve got to get it done, I’ve got to win this thing,’” said Wallace, a two-time winner at The Glen who will work the race as an analyst for the Motor Racing Network.
