Boy Scouts Merit Badge Study at Nature Center

Boy Scouts Merit Badge Study at Nature Center

Jamestown, NY – The Audubon Nature Center is pleased to announce that they will offer a Boy Scout Bird Study Merit Badge program on Saturday, April 25, 2015, from 8 a.m. to noon.

The program is planned so that Scouts who are just beginning their Bird Study Merit Badge can get a good start and those who have already begun can be tested. Bird Study Merit Badge Counselors will be on hand from both the Allegheny Highlands and the Cornplanter Councils.

Several learning stations will be set up to help Scouts learn about or review bird anatomy and songs, field guides, and binoculars. Boys will select the stations they need to visit in order to complete requirements of the badge.

Walks with birding experts will be scheduled at 8 a.m., 9:30 a.m., and 11 a.m.  In addition, there will be a bird feeder building station.

Wellsville reacts to Ceglia disappearance


WELLSVILLE, NY – Two On Your Side's Jeff Preval spent the day Friday talking to residents of the Town of Wellsville in Allegany County. Just about everyone we talked to knows about the Paul Ceglia case, and they all have opinions about him.

Those opinions are getting stronger.

Not only is Ceglia at the center of an alleged scheme to defraud Facebook, but he's also got the title of being a fugitive.

That has people paying attention.

What concerns neighbors is that his wife and two boys are also missing.

"As far as his wife and children go, I hope no harm has come to them," said Judy Coen. "I hope they find his kids. I can't imagine him doing it to his family his parents or his children. It just doesn't make any sense."
