Milt Miner, the sanctuary's other owner, says it's been very bad. "It's the worst winter we've had in 32 years … we have ice that's two, three feet thick down there."

NBC Network veteran Dennis Murphy was assigned this story and says it tweaked his interest because of the close range shooting death of the popular Clymer Superintendent Keith Reed and the social media ties between the victim and the wife of the Virginia man who was eventually convicted for the murder.

There was a focus on the social media connection between Reed and Mary Taglianetti who had met Reed through an on-line dating site when she separated from her husband Anthony Robert Taglianetti.

Audubon President Giving Eagle Presentation

Audubon President Giving Eagle Presentation

Jamestown, NY – Most of us know that the Bald Eagle is the national bird of the United States and is pictured on our national emblem. But not everyone knows that there is a Bald Eagle you can visit in Chautauqua County.

On Monday, April 7, Jamestown Audubon President Ruth Lundin will give a presentation about eagles at the Hazeltine Library in Busti.

Lundin’s 7 p.m. presentation will highlight Liberty, the non-releasable Bald Eagle that lives in her own outdoor habitat at the Audubon Center & Sanctuary. Lundin will share the story of the effort of many volunteers to prepare for providing a home to an eagle that could not survive in the wild on its own. She will also speak about the great attraction Liberty has been for Audubon visitors.

The talk is free and open to the public.

The Hazeltine Library is located at the five corners in Busti; the address is 891 Busti-Sugar Grove Road, Jamestown, New York.
