A medical technician who was charged last week with causing a hepatitis C outbreak in New Hampshire was fired from a hospital in Arizona in April 2010, an official at the hospital said. The technician, David Kwiatkowski, was fired after being found unresponsive in a men’s locker room with syringes and needles; tests found cocaine and marijuana in his system, said the official, Monica Bowman, chief executive of Arizona Heart Hospital. Mr. Kwiatkowski, 33, is accused of stealing anesthetic drugs from Exeter Hospital in New Hampshire and contaminating syringes. His strain of hepatitis C has been diagnosed in 30 patients, and testing has been recommended for about 4,700 people in New Hampshire alone. Officials are still determining who should be tested elsewhere. They have confirmed that Mr. Kwiatkowski also worked in Georgia, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, New York and Pennsylvania before being hired in New Hampshire.

Joanna Guy, 20, of Swanton, Md., is a rising senior at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y., majoring in American Studies. She sings in a university a capella group and, until a few weeks ago, served on the executive board of her sorority as the vice president of recruitment.

Guy was also crowned Miss Maryland June 23, which requires her to serve in the position for a year, and automatically qualifies her to compete in the Miss America pageant in Las Vegas in January.

Realizing that she could not serve both her sorority and the Miss America Organization, Guy wrote an email to the members of her sorority, Alpha Phi, to let them know she would not be returning in the fall semester to serve as vice president of recruitment for her chapter.

She has garnered plenty of sympathy, but her letter has also been mocked and scorned by online critics who, in the case of school-blog commenter J.K. Trotter, found the statement about her decision “ridiculous.”

“Sorority recruitment and pageant publicity are, after all, exactly the same thing,” he cracked.

Guy could not be reached for comment.

Guy had written to her sorority sisters to “inform you about something that I can only describe as very painful, and one of the hardest decisions I have ever been forced to make.”

In the letter, which was released by the Ivy League schools’ blog IvyGate Wednesday, Guy said that being Miss Maryland is a full time job that would prevent her from returning to Ithaca in the fall, and from actively organizing Alpha Phi’s recruitment in the spring semester.

She likened her new responsibilities to managing a business, “except I have no scheduler, no assistants, and no accountant,” she said.

Guy said that her demanding job as Miss Maryland would require her to be “a highly visible public figure who must engage with citizens, government officials, businesspeople, and the media.”

“I hope you can take a few minutes to understand exactly how serious this title is,” she said.

IvyGate commenter Torie agreed, writing, “Like she said, being Miss Maryland is not always about being glamorous, but about getting her message out there, establishing relationships throughout the state of Maryland, and promoting her platform.”

But another commenter found her letter trite.

“The only thing more trivial and banal than than [sic] being in a sorority is being in a f–king beauty pageant,” Common People wrote.”One would think that a woman bright enough to get into Cornell would at the very least possess some modicum of self-awareness. Apparently not.”

Guy said she wanted to return to Cornell in the fall to try to manage all of her responsibilities, but “realized that would not be fair to either the organization who is paying me $15,000 in scholarship to do this job, or to Alpha Phi, which deserves the complete time and attention of its Membership Chair.”

Instead, Guy said she planned to attend Cornell’s program in Washington, D.C., in the fall, where she would enroll in both classes and have an internship, in order to be close to her home state to fulfill her duties.

Claudia Wheatley, director of media relations for Cornell University, said, “That letter was never meant to be public. It was a private letter between her and her sisters. Someone misbehaved in releasing it.”

Wheatley said she is “staggered” by the involvement of Cornell students, and said their ability to juggle is something that they have been doing since they were in middle school and continued successfully into college.

July 12, 2012

A West Virginia man is accused of torturing his wife for nearly a decade, keeping her as a “slave” in their home, burning her flesh with a hot iron and frying pans, and keeping her shackled while she delivered a still-born baby, according to police.

Peter Lizon, 37, will be charged Friday with malicious wounding. He is currently in jail awaiting a hearing on $300,000 bond and has yet to enter a plea.

“This appears to go beyond abuse to what I would consider torture,” Jackson County Chief Sheriff’s Deputy Tony Boggs told The Associated Press.

Lizon was arrested after his wife, Stephanie Lizon, 43, fled her husband on July 2 while the two went to return a roto-tiller at an equipment rental store in Parkersburg. Stephanie sought refuge in the store’s back office and employees there offered to call police. She refused their help in contacting the authorities, but accepted their help in finding a battered women’s shelter.

According to the criminal complaint, confirmed by police, officials at the shelter described Stephanie as “gaunt and filthy” and covered in scars and burns, including one in the shape of a clothes iron on one breast. She had “mutilated and swollen feet,” according to a witness interviewed by police.

Stephanie told officials she was treated like a “slave” and made to kneel before Lizon each time she entered a room for nearly 10 years since the couple moved to West Virginia from Maryland.

She said she was shackled to a bed when she delivered a still-born baby, which Lizon later buried on the property of their farm in Leroy, W.Va.

The date of that delivery is currently unknown. The couple also has a 1-year-old son, who was born under similar circumstances, officials said.

According to police records, Stephanie’s burns and wounds were photographed at the shelter. Police says they have 45 images depicting abuse. On July 5, officers executed a search warrant of the couple’s home and seized items that included a Sunbeam iron.

Jackson County sheriff deputies said neither member of the couple had police records in West Virginia, but they were arrested together in Maryland in 2004, after shredding a Bush-Cheney campaign sign with a bayonet, according to reports.

“The allegations are heinous, but the real question is whether the allegations are meritorious,” said Lizon’s defense attorney Shawn Bayless. “The allegations are a fabrication, levied by a third party and everyone is rushing to judgment.”

“A domestic battery charge is noticeably absent. The facts will bear out what did or did not happen,” he said.

County prosecutors would not comment on the charges until the hearing.

July 2, 2012               1:04 AM

See if this tale sounds familiar: A 15-year-old from Maryland comes out of nowhere to make an Olympic team.

No, not him.

Kathleen Ledecky of Bethesda, Md., last year’s junior national champion in the 400- and 800-meter freestyles, became the youngest member of this year’s United States Olympic swimming team on Sunday night. She pulled away from world championship bronze medalist Kate Ziegler to win the 800 free in 8 minutes 19.78 seconds, breaking Katie Hoff’s 2008 Olympic trials record by more than one second. Ziegler never made up ground the second half of the race and finished in 8:21.87.

“Four years ago, I never knew how to qualify for an Olympic trials,” said Ledecky, whose swim club, Curl-Burke of Burke, Va., produced Olympic gold medalists Tom Dolan and Ed Moses. “I thought it was an unreal thing.

“It’s just unbelievable to think back at where I was, and think about the work I’ve put in these last couple of months with my coach, Yuri Suguiyama. He’s really prepared me and I had a lot of confidence.”

Last Tuesday night Ledecky just missed making the team in the 400 free, finishing third, less than one second behind the runner-up Chloe Sutton. But her time of 4:05 broke Janet Evans’s age-group record of 4:05.45 for 15- and 16-year-olds, which had stood since 1988. Evans still holds the American senior record in the 800, going 8:16.22 in 1989, a world record that stood for 19 years.

Sunday, Ledecky posted the second-fastest time in the world this year.

“I don’t think I was supposed to go out that fast,” she said. “I wasn’t really planning to go out that fast. I went out with it, and I just kept trying to hold onto it.”

Ziegler, who swam in the lane next to Ledecky, congratulated her right there in the pool.

“I can remember being 15, making my first international team, certainly not the Olympics,” said Ziegler, 24, a first-time Olympian. “But just the experience that she has ahead of her is so exciting, and I’m excited for her, because I’ve been there and it’s the coolest.”

Saturday June 2, 2012            6:19 PM

 

For someone whose name won’t be on the ballot in November, the stakes this year could hardly be higher for Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley’s political future.

Over the next few months, O’Malley (D) will try to convince Marylanders to uphold the state’s new same-sex marriage law in an expected referendum. He’ll also make the case for another ballot measure that would allow in-state college tuition breaks for illegal immigrants. Defeat on either would be a blow to O’Malley.

And during the same stretch, O’Malley, aschairman of the Democratic Governors Association, will be judged on his efforts to promote gubernatorial candidates in a dozen states around the country.

“By any measure, he’s got to be one of the three or four top rising stars in the party right now, so I think all of these things matter in terms of building a national following,” said Joe Trippi, a longtime Democratic consultant who ran former Vermont governor Howard Dean’s 2004 campaign for the presidential nomination. Trippi lives in Maryland.

As he travels the country, the impression O’Malley leaves with party activists in key states also will matter if he plans to seek national office in 2016, as many suspect.

In a colorful speech to Democrats in New Hampshire on Saturday, he both talked up the need to keep the governorship there in Democratic hands and took aim at Republicans, accusing the “constipation Congress” of hindering President Obama’s job-creation efforts.

While the year holds promise for O’Malley, it also carries substantial risks, both for his legacy and for any political ambitions he might harbor beyond Maryland.

Voters in no state have ever approved a ballot measure allowing same-sex marriage. Leading the charge in the nation’s first would bring O’Malley a wave of national attention and secure part of his record in Maryland.

On the other hand, falling short in one of the nation’s bluest states would be an embarrassment, particularly in a year when Obama and others have brought so much attention to the issue.

O’Malley’s standing also will be shaped in part by how fellow Democrats do on the ballot in a year that he acknowledges is a tough one for some of his party’s candidates for governor. A better-than-expected showing would impress Democratic donors and activists, whose support could be crucial down the road. But a poor showing could haunt him like a bad note in a personnel file.

In an interview, O’Malley acknowledged he has “a very busy summer” ahead with much to juggle, including his stewardship of Maryland.

“All of these thing are coming together at one time, and you do the best you can with the hours you have,” he said. “I feel very committed to both the marriage equality referendum and the Dream Act [immigrant tuition] referendum. They’re evidence our state is moving forward.”

Between now and November, O’Malley also is expected to continue to press Obama’s case on the Sunday talk show circuit, and he said raising money for the president’s reelection will be a priority.

 PHOTO: The Illinois Mega Million Lottery winners, Merle and Patricia Butler, were announced today, April 18, 2012.

April 18, 2012

The last of the Mega Millions lottery winners are Merle and Patricia Butler, a married couple from Red Bud, Ill., and they came forward to claim their share in the biggest jackpot in lottery history today.

The lifelong residents of Red Bud discovered they had won the night of the drawing with a $3 quickpick ticket. They watched the numbers be read on the news and Merle Butler, 65, jotted down the numbers on a pad. He went to his wallet to get the tickets and immediately noticed he had the Mega Ball number.

“I thought, ‘I might win something,” Merle Butler said at the news conference. “The further I went, the more they matched. After I looked at it for a couple minutes, I turned to my wife and said, ‘We won.'”

“She kind of looked at me funny and I said, ‘No, we won.’ And then she started giggling,” Merle Butler said with a laugh. “She giggled for about four hours.”

The couple took the winning ticket to a bank lock box first thing in the morning and recalled a teller jokingly asking if they had come to lock up their winning ticket.

Merle Butler said he laughed and said lightly, “Yeah, I won and I have to put this thing away.” The teller laughed, not knowing he was telling the truth.

The couple were coy about how they would spend the money, saying they had a good team of financial advisers and lawyers that were helping them set things up.

The couple were required to have their identities revealed and appear at a news conference today. Illinois officials have said winners are required to come forward in order to prove to the public that the money is being rewarded.

The other two Mega Million lottery winners were from Kansas and Maryland and those states do not require the winner to go public.

Illinois lottery officials have been tight-lipped about the winner, saying only that he or she is a single winner, as opposed to part of a pool. The news conference will be held at 11 a.m. ET at the village hall in Red Bud, a town in southwestern Illinois. The winning ticket was sold at a gas station in the small farming town.

The newly-minted multimillionaires can decide between 26 yearly payments totaling $218.6 million or a one-time lump sum of $157.8 million.

The drawing for the world’s largest jackpot was on March 30. The winning numbers were 2-4-23-38-46 and the Mega Ball number was 23.

The Kansas winner was the first to claim a piece of the prize on April 6.

Kansas Lottery authorities presented a jumbo check for an estimated $218 million to a cardboard poster figure with a smiley-face head and the words “anonymous jackpot winner” printed on its chest.

Lottery officials would not reveal the gender, age or any other details about the winner, saying only that the winner played “quite often,” but not “a lot.” The winner chose to take the cash option of $157 million.

The Maryland prize was claimed on April 9 by three teachers, identified as the “Three Amigos.” Lottery officials released a photo of them holding an oversized check in front of their faces.

The winners were a man in his 40s, a woman in her 20s and a woman in her 50s and they had pooled their money to buy 60 tickets.

The Maryland trio chose the cash option of $158 million. After taxes, they will take home a little less than $35 million each.
