  • NYC health official expects more Legionnaires' disease cases

    Updated: 20 hr ago

    NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City health official says it is likely doctors will diagnose more cases of Legionnaires' disease in the Bronx in the coming days, amid an outbreak that has killed four and sickened dozens. Dr. Jay Varma, deputy commissioner for disease control in the city's health department, told The Associated Press on Saturday that people who live or work in the South Bronx, where the disease-causing bacteria have been found, could be at risk. "It's certainly possible and likely that there will be more cases of this disease identified over the next few days," he said. "And those will be due to people who were exposed to this infection before the cleaning process began.

  • Browns owner Haslam says franchise hasn’t given up on Manziel

    Updated: 21 hr ago

    BEREA, Ohio — Browns owner Jimmy Haslam has made stern public comments about quarterback Johnny Manziel as recently as January. But Haslam has voiced support and softened his stance in the aftermath of last year’s 22nd overall draft pick spending more than 10 weeks this offseason in a rehabilitation facility specializing in alcohol and drug addiction treatment. “Despite what everybody reads and says, we’ve not at all given up on Johnny,” Haslam said Saturday after the third full-squad practice of training camp. “We think he has the potential to be a good football player.

    Updated: 23 hr ago

    “What was broken in a home, must be fixed in a home.” That’s the introduction to the mission driving The House of Eli, a Christian-based, nonprofit home intent on setting right what went wrong with at-risk young men. Tawni Hodge and Ryan Ridenour worked together to create a nonthreatening home for men aged 18 to 24 who have experienced trauma, struggle with substance abuse and are at high risk for incarceration. The house held a ribbon-cutting ceremony and opened its door on Thursday. Hodge, who provides religious services at the Juvenile Detention Center and has been a foster mom with her husband to many teenage boys, sees these young men as kids, she said.

  • Rolling chefs say El Paso food truck parks are boosting industry


    Carlos "Chuck" Ramirez thinks having more food truck parks in El Paso will help grow the food truck industry here. That's why last month he opened the Montana Avenue Food Truck Court at 12525 Montana, near the new Cinemark movie theater in far East El Paso. It operates Thursday through Saturday nights. It's one of only three food truck parks in El Paso, including one opening this week inside an East Side flea market. But another East Side food truck park is under construction and other entrepreneurs are scouting for locations in other areas of El Paso.

  • Charity Hospital replacement opens Saturday in New Orleans


    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Ten years after the levees and floodwalls broke during Hurricane Katrina and flooded New Orleans, the Big Easy finally has a full-scale hospital again — a new Charity hospital. At 6 a.m. Saturday, the new 2.3 million-square-foot University Medical Center New Orleans, built with $1.1 billion of federal, state and private rebuilding money, ambulances and medical staff began the transfer of 131 patients into the new hospital for its first day of operations.

In addition, the system's 2,000-strong staff of doctors, specialists, nurses and office workers will move in too. Since Katrina, medical services h

  • NY's medical pot distributors reflect industry's evolution


    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — America's medical marijuana industry has come a long way from its beginnings 20 years ago. Entrepreneurs, physicians and well-heeled investors are now getting into the business as New York works toward becoming the latest state to authorize cannabis for conditions like cancer, epilepsy and AIDS. State health officials on Friday announced five companies that will grow and dispense the medication when the program begins next year. They include three organizations with experience in other states. Each one will operate one greenhouse facility and four dispensaries located throughout the state. The marijuana itself will be required to be in non-smokable form, such as oils that can be ingested or v

  • CDC's top modeler courts controversy with disease estimate


    ATLANTA (AP) — Last fall, when Martin Meltzer calculated that 1.4 million people might contract Ebola in West Africa, the world paid attention. This was, he said, a worst-case scenario. But Meltzer is the most famous disease modeler for the nation's pre-eminent public health agency, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. His estimate was promoted at high-level international meetings. It rallied nations to step up their efforts to fight the disease. But the estimate proved to be off. Way, way off. Like, 65 times worse than what ended up happening. Some were not surprised.

  • Alabama's rural hospitals in critical condition


    WEDOWEE, Ala. (AP) — An ambulance carrying a person with stroke symptoms backs up the emergency room on summer morning at Wedowee Hospital. The tiny, red brick hospital is the closest hospital for about 45 miles in this rural stretch of east Alabama. "We have had people who would not have survived if we hadn't been here," said emergency room physician Dr. Jose Oblena. The hospital could also be the next hospital to be shuttered as rural hospitals struggle to survive. Eight rural Alabama hospitals have closed over the last 15 years, according to the Alabama Hospital Association. Nationwide, 54 rural hospitals have closed since 2010, according to the North Carolina Rural Health Research Program.

  • 2 Republicans, 3 Dems seek nominations for Miss. governor


    JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant appears confident of winning his party's nomination for re-election Tuesday. The Republican is already talking about pushing for tax cuts during a second term, and he's paying little attention to anyone else running for governor. While opponents say Bryant has failed to pull Mississippi out of persistent poverty, he points to the state's decreasing unemployment rate as proof of success. "In my State of the State address, I said my first job is to make sure that every Mississippian who wants a job, has one," Bryant said Thursday at the Neshoba County Fair, one of the state's largest political gatherings. "I've amended that. I want 'em to have a job, even if they don't want o

  • Suicide spike boosts oversight of California women's prison


    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A spike in suicides and attempted suicides has prompted corrections officials to step up oversight at a California women's prison as inspectors try to pinpoint the cause of the troubling increase. Four women have killed themselves at California Institution for Women in San Bernardino County in the last 18 months, according to state records. The suicide rate at the facility is more than eight times the national rate for female inmates and more than five times the rate for the entire California prison system.

  • Substance abuse funding available to Connecticut groups


    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut community organizations will be able to seek newly available federal funding to help address youth alcohol use and prescription drug abuse. The Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services recently received an $8.2 million federal grant over five years. DMHAS will distribute the funds through a competitive grant process to 11 community-level agencies located in medium- and large-size urban areas with a high rate of alcohol and other drug use.

Gov. Dannel P.

  • Social service agencies brace for budget stalemate damage


    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — For the third time in a dozen years, counties and nonprofit agencies that make up Pennsylvania's social services safety net are girding for budget deadlock in Harrisburg. The state government is in its fifth week of a budget stalemate, and the governor's office is halting reimbursements for July's invoices. That means agencies are deciding which services must stop or whether workers must be laid off. To keep things going, some counties may front the money and some workers may go unpaid. Family Services of Western Pennsylvania has increased its credit line to keep paying staff and providing services to people who need daily help with mental illness and addiction.

  • Planned Parenthood: No tissue donations in NNE


    PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Planned Parenthood clinics in Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire say they don't donate fetal tissue for research, even though they say it's legal to do so. Secretly recorded videos have ignited debate over whether fetal tissue from abortions should be used for research. As part of the fallout, Republicans in Congress have introduced a bill to strip federal funding from Planned Parenthood. Nicole Clegg from Planned Parenthood of Northern New England told the Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/1JW3qYu ) that its clinics do not donate tissue from aborted fetuses. Nonetheless, Maine Right to Life Committee, which opposes abortion, is calling for an investigation in the three states.

  • Judge blocks release of recordings by anti-abortion group

    Updated: Fri, Jul 31, 2015

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal judge on Friday blocked the release of any recordings made at meetings of an abortion providers' association by an anti-abortion group that previously revealed secretly recorded videos of a Planned Parenthood leader. Judge William Orrick in San Francisco issued a temporary restraining order against the Center for Medical Progress hours after the order was requested by the National Abortion Federation. In his three-page order, Orrick said the federation would likely suffer irreparable injury absent a temporary restraining order "in the form of harassment, intimidation, violence, invasion of privacy, and injury to reputation.
