Larry Flynt doesn't want man who shot him executed

Friday, 18 October 2013 04:27 Published in Local News

   LOS ANGELES (AP) - Porn publisher Larry Flynt says he doesn't want to see the man whose gunshots paralyzed him 35 years ago put to death for his crimes.

   In an essay published Thursday in The Hollywood Reporter, Flynt says that while he'd love to take pliers and a pair of wire cutters to Joseph Paul Franklin, he doesn't believe in the death penalty.

   The Hustler magazine publisher says keeping Franklin locked in a tiny prison cell for the rest of his life is a greater punishment.

   Franklin has been in prison since 1980 for a string of shootings that left five people dead and others wounded.

   He is scheduled to be executed November 20th in Missouri.

   Franklin targeted blacks, Jews and people like Flynt, who he believed promoted interracial relations.

Mississippi River city mayors meet in Memphis

Friday, 18 October 2013 04:19 Published in Local News

   MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Mayors from cities along the Mississippi River are calling on Congress to increase funding for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for infrastructure improvements and dredging projects that keep commerce flowing on the waterway.

   Leaders of the Mississippi River Cities and Towns Initiative and the Delta Regional Authority addressed media Thursday after meeting in Memphis to discuss the Mississippi River economy.

   River ports have dealt with flooding and drought since 2011, causing water levels to reach near-record highs and hazardous lows in a span of months.

   Mayor Larry Brown of Natchez, Mississippi said the Corps does all it can to maintain river commerce, but it does not get enough congressional funding to deal with dredging and infrastructure problems. Some ports relied on local funding for dredging projects in recent years.

 

Report: Illinois hospitals lower infections, falls

Friday, 18 October 2013 03:40 Published in Local News

   NAPERVILLE, Ill. (AP) - The Illinois Hospital Association has issued a report on efforts to improve care by reducing the number of patients who get infections in the hospital and other conditions.

   The report is based on the achievements of 200 hospitals and health systems in Illinois. The report finds that those hospitals reduced the number of falls, pressure ulcers, infections and other harmful events from 2011 to 2012. The estimated cost savings amount to more than $18 million.

   Hospital association president Maryjane Wurth says the group's Innovations in Care and Quality provides innovative programs, resources and tools to help member hospitals with their efforts to improve.

   Not all the news was rosy. The report finds preventable hospital re-admissions remained at about 14 percent from 2011 to 2012.
