Enhanced Ebola Screening to Commence in U.S. Airports

 

On Oct. 11, 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Department of Homeland Security’s Customs & Border Protection (CBP) commenced screening for the Ebola virus at select U.S. airports. Starting with New York’s JFK Airport, all travelers from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone will now undergo enhanced entry screening in an effort to detect overt signs of the deadly illness.

Early Morning Fire at Playground Causes $20,000 in Damage


BUFFALO, N.Y. - Buffalo Fire Department investigators need the public's help to find out who set fire to a playground.

The playground at the Northwest Buffalo Community Center on Lawn Avenue was damaged after it was set on fire at about 2 a.m. Saturday. No injuries were reported but fire investigators say about $20,000 worth of damage was done.

Now they're asking for the public's help to figure out who's responsible.

As Two On Your Side's Andrea Marvin learned from North District Councilman Joe Golombek, it's a devastating loss for residents who say this neighborhood has dealt with enough.

The playground belongs to the Head Start program at the Northwest Community Center, which provides social services and is somewhat of a hub for this area. Golombek says whoever set the fire is just hurting the kids.

Teen Girl Fatally Shot Identified as 17-year-old Shmerea Nailor


BUFFALO, N.Y. – Police have identified the 17-year-old girl fatally shot Thursday night at Shmerea Nailor, a student who had been attending Burgard High School.

The shooting happened in front of a church at the intersection of Riverside and Ontario last Thursday night.

On Friday, 2 On Your Side met friends and family in mourning over the loss of a young woman they say was taken too soon.

"She was a good kid, and it happened to the wrong person," a friend said.

At Burgard, friends say she played basketball.

Buffalo Interim Superintendent Donald Ogilvie said, "As a school community, we will do all that we can to comfort those students and staff who are most affected by this tragic end to a young life."

Recently, though, friends also say Nailor had been hanging out with the wrong crowd.
