    Fri, 31 Oct 2014

    Lives not out of the state of Maine near the city of Augusta were Mel leery. A reporter and editor of man public radio standing about a twelve of those above nurse Casey Hitchcock's. Who continues to defy authorities who say she should be staying home because of her exposure to a bald victims in West Africa. Mel good morning thank you for joining us. Morning Ed I hear a picture of Tracy and snow flurries tomorrow as well. You know well we understand New England could be in for a one heck of a storm of all these weather patterns come together to what they're expecting up there as far as whether. That's who we're expecting at some snow flurries might pull reporter up in fort Kent that designed to this news story on the ground up there. Into orbit Boris helped being able to get home over the weekend. Well Boylan okay well I hope you guys of their peoples posted now about mr. Cox one issue being so defiant what's the story. What she and her boyfriend who's also training to be a nurse are saying she has no symptoms. And therefore she is not at risk of spreading this disease it is this inspires. Needs to have someone it's showing symptoms and or look for them to be able to passed it on. And she's saying look. Umps felt more urgent I mean I'm I'm complying we'd be. States can someone in monitoring my temperatures either at that I don't have a temperature. But you know I'm I'm still gonna go out and ride my bike and if I wanna go out and take a walk I'm going to do it. Well the governor is saying he wants church you stay in their self imposed quarantine and she's saying I simply won't do that because it's not necessary. Are what's going out with a court order that they're trying to get. Well debt to that there has been no action in court yet despite the governor continuing to say that this state going to court they haven't yet. There have been negotiations behind the scenes between lawyers for her and lawyers for the attorney general who are saying. Basically. We wanna put on Casey these same restrictions that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention nationally Irsay. Which would allow her to do what she's done so far which is take a bike ride didn't go outside and in their car. But avoid contact where we would individuals for example like going to a restaurant and sitting down having a meal. It killed the he incubation period runs out on November cat so that's her position that's her lawyer extradition. But we still haven't seen it play out in court yet. Doug your lead bike ride with her boyfriend lots of people followed in tag along and we hear that she shook hands with a reporter. Is that true. I don't know I have heard that report our reporter did not adapt. So I can't say that is true I do know that they have been very careful for example our reporter was president went. The local pizza place the most Shaq delivered a peach to Casey and it will over yesterday. It was caddie who actually took delivery at a pizza from the video that I seeing what my reporters that they didn't catch. They didn't touch but they obviously were in close proximity. You know the important thing here and that's what's being stressed by the Maine medical association in the main state nurses association along what they're national delegates. Is that. This woman rate now is needed eight symptomatic she can not pass on me Ebola Virus to any want. Until she does becomes symptomatic. So they're saying that this State's going too far by changing yet to be quarantined in her home and in fact. It's so move either abuse street view is that reporters the governor seems to have backed off and is now no longer ashamed. That should get the quarantine which you at least get to take and other blood test. Well they've medical folks are telling us well that really isn't gonna help Britney and because again. She's asymptomatic. The time to take a blood test is going to start showing symptoms the C indeed if the symptoms of being driven by people of like something else. Yeah okay was a reaction just from regular folks in Maine to the story. It did give split all over the place you have people understandably. Because of the Ebola Virus and what what has happened to a bit terrible epidemic West Africa. I'm very concerned. Yet there are the folks were saying now wait a minute. This woman has not got the symptoms she is not contagious. So no. But let's not get. It's not get carried away let's not give him that year so you have this going on in of course underlying all of this. Is the elections next Tuesday. The governor is up for reelection and he is indeed very close race within with a democratic congressman who's been in office for decade. So it's almost like two incumbent turning against each other every single pole step one of the last month has shown them within a point at each other. So underlying all of this is the governor coming out very clearly saying you know I'm out there to protect the people of Maine and I water quarantine. And some of the political scientist like talking to its most of what I do political reporting. Are saying you know they could have an impact on the election. So you have all of these swirling factors besides the health issues involved you have these political issues involved. Okay ML nice to talk with 2 this morning thank you begin in keep your personal shuttle snowblower ready for the weekend. I always do OK let's Mallory is a reporter and editor at Maine public radio and Augusta.

The Bon Jovi group out of Toronto and Donald Trump and joining us live this morning Peter -- The sports announcer with succeeding news in Toronto hate Peter good morning. Good morning how close you guys following this. Should go followed it closely because world by the Rogers communications. And apparently. Larry tenable on the terminal maple leaf sports and entertainment which is owned by Rogers communications also. Put it in a bid in the of that apparently it's gonna cost a billion dollars told the bills so. Both fortunate Rodgers passed away he was and have been a pretty well. -- everything you know we don't believe we will know rappers we don't want which -- soccer team we don't. -- people we don't meet its current and Alex of course. The Rogers generally on the right percent of the football field and I am -- hockey rink in the. And count as well so why not all the bill. You know you take a lot of calls from fans and listeners -- in the Toronto area. What are folks up there are saying about this whole situation on the Buffalo Bills possibly someday moving to Toronto staying in buffalo what are they saying theater. I don't know that there's an awful lot of buzz about it in recent years we've had the bills play one game here. I in the regular season every year in the process sort of like don't. Gone downward do you buy yourself. I think that of course at the Buffalo Bills were to come to Ronald would be terrific support for that I can't let that there's a real bodies were very excited about the -- right now. Yeah there's no real buzz about the team because you like you sort of insinuated. It's not. Toronto's team that somebody else's team right. Yeah and and quite frankly and I yelled -- up to the football team that they're not drawing well. It is either so it would remain to be seen if we got an NFL team. Just how well it would draw on what one -- would do very well. Well it's almost silent there may be a bidding war for this team because there's a report in the New York Post this morning -- Terry Pakula the owner of the sabres. Bid over a billion dollars yesterday for the bills. And that's what I'm seeing a billion dollar -- and. And -- from a mirror one billion dollar general -- could buy you some. Yeah yeah but yesterday was supposed to be the the low ball offer the initial bid. And it goes up from there. You know what you've got three or four multi billionaires all wanting the team. I mean it's at the end of the day it's it's really like an eagle contest is that I want the people -- into the fourth. -- -- do you believe. Do you believe Jon Bon Jovi what these -- no plans to move the team to Toronto. Don't know don't know. If he said that I guess he's -- to be a man of his word. I will be moving to keep from bottle to -- would be politically a very difficult thing to do don't you. I think I -- yeah -- spyware response would buffalo football and after that. All it could be huge I mean it'd be a -- for share. -- -- -- And then that then there's the issue is job is. But he went -- below a movement until 20/20. And the police. I think the NFL would have been sustainable the size of the stadium here too which only could hold about. How mature couple 50000 for football so I think could be a lot of issues there. Hey Peter nice talking with you this morning thanks for the time. Right that's Peter -- sports announcer with 680 news in Toronto as we can you intend to continue to follow these. Bills bidding developments this morning.

How does it make you feel knowing Buffalo has two designated Ebola treatment hospitals?
