NC Zoo welcomes 3 kudus

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

ASHEBORO, NC (AP) — The North Carolina Zoo has welcomed three newborn kudus.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported two of the newborns of the species of antelope from Africa are now on display. Zoo spokesman Tom Gillespie says the third kudu calf is undergoing medical treatment.

The kudus are living in the zoo’s 37-acre African Plains exhibit, which has nine different species, including rhinos.

The zoo has added a female baby giraffe in the past three weeks. Another kudu and two fringe-eared oryx calves also were born in the past two months.

Gillespie says the zoo now has 15 kudus.

Adult care home plan for NC under way

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

Associated Press

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina’s state health agency is moving ahead with a plan to help move mentally ill residents from adult care homes to affordable housing and less restrictive living conditions.

The state Department of Health and Human Services unveiled the plan Thursday that will cost more than $10 million this year and as much as $67 million over eight years.

The plan responds to allegations made in 2011 by the US Department of Justice that the state was failing to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act because so many mentally ill people were living in segregated settings.

It’s unclear whether the plan is enough to prevent federal attorneys from suing the state.

Acting HHS Secretary Al Delia said his agency is moving ahead because it’s the right policy.
