By Andy Tsubasa Field   BISMARCK, N.D. (AP)—Two years ago, an Iowa man whom Guinness World Records had named the longest-surviving heart transplant patient died 34 years after receiving his new heart. Records like this cause friends of Richard Gullickson, of rural Center, to believe he might be one of the longest-surviving heart transplant patients alive today, reported the Bismarck Tribune. Gullickson, who turned 83 this month, received his life-saving surgery 29 years ago at the University of Minnesota's Health Transplant Care facility—the same provider that...

2/28/2020 6:05:56 PM

By Joanne Kimberlin   CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP)—Eddie Vincek is a survivor. He's made it to 95. Still stands tall, with remarkably few ailments. Still lives with his wife in their longtime house in rural Chesapeake, where he putters around the flower beds of their 4-acre yard. Seventy-five years ago, Vincek beat some other odds—surviving the Battle of Iwo Jima, one of the last and bloodiest struggles of World War II in the Pacific. More than 6,000 American troops never made it off that tiny island near Japan. Another 20,000 or so were wounded. Vincek hit the...

2/19/2020 4:01:08 PM

ATLANTA (AP)—Students at an Atlanta high school want to rename their school because its namesake was a 19th century newspaper editor who endorsed white supremacy. About 180 Henry W. Grady High School students submitted a petition to the school board on Feb. 3 requesting a name change for the school, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Grady was an editor and part-owner of The Atlanta Constitution. He advocated for a “New South” after the Civil War, but he also campaigned against equality for freed slaves, saying “the supremacy of the white race of the...

2/19/2020 3:57:22 PM

By Lauran Neergaard   WASHINGTON (AP)—Reports one day suggest the respiratory outbreak in China might be slowing, the next brings word of thousands more cases. Even the experts have whiplash in trying to determine if the epidemic is getting worse, or if a backlog of the sick is finally getting counted.

2/19/2020 3:53:57 PM

WASHINGTON (AP)—The Trump administration's effort to remake Medicaid by requiring low-income people to work for health care suffered a serious setback Friday when a federal appeals court ruled it goes beyond what's allowed by law. The unanimous decision by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit means President Donald Trump will have little to show for one of his major health care initiatives ahead of the November elections. The case involves Arkansas, but the ruling is expected to affect other states pursuing work...
