Submitted image.JAMESTOWN – A local nature center has broke ground on a new wildlife habitat.The Audubon Community Nature Center this month held an informal groundbreaking ceremony for the new Pamela A. Westrom Wildlife Habitat.For almost two decades, Audubon has been home to Liberty, a non-releasable Bald Eagle that was rescued in Washington state. Every year thousands of visitors enjoy viewing Liberty in her outdoor enclosure and several dedicated volunteers, guided by Thom Armella, provide care for her.With the support of generous donors, this new building will have an animal care room that is large enough for behind-the-scenes tours and three to four animal enclosures. The new habitats will be adjacent to Liberty’s enclosure, creating a corridor of wildlife that will significantly expand the visitor experience.Kim Turner, the staff lead for animal care, is currently training with raptors such as hawks and owls and researching care for these animals in preparation to obtain additional birds.As well as being on display regularly, these birds of prey will be in-hand, educational ambassadors, which requires a different level of training and permitting than Liberty requires.“We are so excited about this project and its potential for enriching the connection between people and nature,” said Turner in a statement. “Our planning for this project began in 2019 and it could be spring of next year before our new residents arrive, but we know it will be worth all the time and effort we’re putting into it.”Once actual construction has begun, Liberty’s enclosure will be blocked off to minimize the stress on her. To accommodate her fans, she has a Facebook page where she will keep everyone up-to-date on her daily routines, what’s new, and how she is feeling about getting some new neighbors.last_img read more

Clippers’ Lou Williams on the verge of scoring history

first_imgFriday’s effort was doubly historic. It goes down as the 28th game Williams has scored 30 or more off the bench, which moved him past Ricky Pierce for the most on record. It also propelled Williams into second on the all-time bench scoring list, past former Clipper Jamal Crawford, whose current career scoring total is 11,104.“Jamal is somebody that I’ve looked up to over the course of my career,” Williams said. “He’s been like a mentor and a big brother to me and so many different guys, so to be in striking distance of history, it just means a lot.” Crawford — the league’s three-time Sixth Man of the Year awardee — still is playing for the Phoenix Suns, but the 38-year-old is averaging 6.4 points per outing these days, compared with William’s per-game clip of 20.2.The Clippers’ current super-sub believes he’s earned the Sixth Man award this season, which history would remember as his third win and second in a row.That too would be meaningful, Williams said.“At this point, with the records I broke this year and the things I’ve been able to accomplish individually, to have a third one in the bag would just seal the deal for me,” he said. “(Montrezl Harrell) and I have made history together, I’ve made history by myself this year, played over 60 games, I’ve been consistent all year, so I think it’s my trophy.”Williams and Harrell (16.3 points per game) have the highest combined scoring average of any reserve duo in NBA history, according to Elias Sports Bureau.Individually, Williams’ 45 points in Minnesota on Feb. 11 were the most by a reserve since 2009 and set a record as his fourth career 40-plus-point game off the bench (before he added a fifth such game Friday).The slick-playing 6-foot-1 guard became the player to first log at least 30 points and 10 assists in fewer than 23 minutes on Feb. 13 against Phoenix.His current scoring average is second-most by any reserve in 25 seasons, behind only his own 21.9 per-game average a season ago.And he’s been at the wheel of a Clippers reserve unit that’s averaging 52.8 points per game, most by any bench squad in more than 30 seasons – an output that puts pressure on the starters to keep it close for the bench.“(Normally) when you step on the floor with the second unit, your job is always to bring a lot of energy and play hard and … keep the game close,” said center Ivica Zubac, who starts for the Clippers but previously often played a reserve role with the Lakers.“But with (Williams) it’s different. He’s a starter coming off the bench, him and Trezz. (So) starting game, we just gotta keep the game close and we know when they get in, they’re gonna take us to the win.”Whenever Williams catches Curry — the 38-29 Clippers host Boston on Monday and Portland on Tuesday — he’s likely to continue padding the total. Curry’s 11,147 points off the bench came in 984 games. It’s taken Williams, 32, only 813 to get this close.“It’s history,” Williams said Friday, taking into account all of the records he and Harrell have spent the season writing.  “Something to be proud of … when you walk away, you want to walk away and say you left a mark on the game.” LOS ANGELES — OK, class, please open your history books to the chapter on Lou Williams.No, it’s not complete yet, but it’s already long on feats and records – and set to include, any game now, an account of Williams taking over as the NBA’s top bench scorer since such a thing began being tracked during the 1970-71 season.Williams is 27 points from matching Dell Curry’s off-the-bench career scoring record of 11,147.“It means a lot, that’s part of my legacy at this point,” Williams said after pouring in 40 points off the bench in Friday’s victory over Oklahoma City. “It’s part of my history, part of my career and what people will remember about me when I walk away from the game. To be in striking distance to be the leading scorer off the bench means a lot.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
