DEADLY VIRUS ALERT! OUTBREAK In Southeast USA!

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has issued a serious warning to all hospitals, clinics, and doctors offices across America. 

A vial of deadly virus disappeared from a LAB in Houston a few months ago (no known antidote or vaccine.) A couple of months later (February) young people have died from a “mysterious” illness in the same Houston area; now this month (May) it appears to have spread to neighboring Alabama. Symptoms are the same. Could this be  “bio-terrorism.” ? The beating around the bush, in the news reports, only serves to galvanize this opinion. Where will this lead and how far will it spread?

MONTGOMERY, Ala. –  A mysterious respiratory illness has left five people hospitalized and two dead in southeast Alabama, state health officials said Tuesday.

Seven people have been admitted to hospitals with a fever, cough and shortness of breath in recent weeks, Alabama Department of Public Health spokeswoman Mary McIntyre said in a statement.

Two of the seven have died. The Alabama Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control Respiratory Laboratory are analyzing lab tests from all seven patients. McIntyre says officials hope to have preliminary results on the samples back by Wednesday or Thursday morning.

The illness was first reported late last week and the last of the seven patients was hospitalized Monday, McIntyre said.

Pirate Radio Station Tells FCC to go Walk a Plank

Nine months after the Federal Com­mun­i­ca­tions Commission moved to shut down an unlicensed Austin radio broadcast, the pirate station is still on the air, openly defying the government order.

“I’m not giving up, because this is about the truth,” said Deborah Stevens, the public voice behind the station, as she eats quiche at a South Austin diner. Her voice rises a couple of octaves when she mentions “the truth,” Barack Obama’s birth certificate, or “the cartel” – especially the cartel. “It’s all about the cartel, the monopoly cartel, the Texas Association of Broadcasters and the FCC protecting their cartel illegally,” said Stevens, part of a group loosely known as Radio Free Austin.For more than a decade, the group has used frequencies at 90.1FM and 100.1FM to broadcast shows discussing what they see as the government cover-up of 9/11, the growth of the police state, and the accuracy of various prophecies. Their guru is Alex Jones, self-styled leader of Infowars, man’s last hope against the much-discussed and constantly feared New World Order. Some commuters may know the station from the handmade signs touting liberty and the station’s frequency occasionally unfurled on a fence along MoPac, north of Downtown.

Last November the FCC ordered Stevens and her husband, Jerry, to pay a $10,000 “forfeiture” for operating the station without a license. Also fined was former Travis County Sheriff Raymond Frank, 84, who served as sheriff in the Seventies and ran for the post again in 2008 on a platform that included reducing penalties for marijuana possession. For many years, the station broadcast from a transmitter on an old 80-foot-tall wind tower on Frank’s Mount Larson property.

San Remo, Sulphur Springs, TX – Nasty Italian Restaurant – Obnoxious Staff

Be careful where you eat

I have been to the restaurant a few times over the years. It is the only Italian restaurant in the area. Their attitude has always been flippant and the food just ok. This past weekend 8/11/12 we took a friend to eat here. Again the borderline rude attitude prevailed. We all ordered salads. When the salad arrived I ate a few bites then noticed a long blonde hair in the salad. We sent all the salads back as we had lost our appetite for the salads at that point. A few minutes later the main dishes arrived. They were ok – but my chicken was not done thoroughly – but I ate around the poorly cooked area.
