2 The Outdoors: Strength Through Adversity


DELEVAN, NY - Life can be tough for small animal sanctuaries. The high cost of feeding and caring for animals can be overwhelming in itself, but throw in a cruel twist of weather and the odds can seem insurmountable.

Unfortunately, that's just what happened this winter at Gooseneck Hill Waterfowl Sanctuary in Delevan. Owner Rosemary Miner describes one of the most daunting tasks this winter. "Chopping ice, chopping ice, and more chopping," she lamented.

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."

Dateline NBC Profiles School Official Slaying


CLYMER, NY - A murder case which gripped Western New York with the death of a popular school superintendent was profiled Friday on Dateline NBC.

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.

The Dateline program showed the police interview with Mary Taglianetti who had contacted police about her husband's anger towards Reed.

Murphy interviewed her about the threatening e-mail sent to Reed and how she found out about Reed's death.
