Enhanced Ebola Screening to Commence in U.S. Airports

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. This week, Washington-Dulles, Newark, Chicago O-Hare and Atlanta International airports will follow suit. These five airports receive over 94 percent of travelers from the Ebola-affected nations. 

Stadium Visits for Bills-Pats Fans: 30 Year Tradition

ORCHARD PARK, NY - Today's game should have the fans at the Ralph at a fever pitch considering the so-called "Brady Bunch" will be in town. And in the middle of all those fans, some guys with Boston accents will be present.

They are actually part of a friendly rivalry with their buddies from Buffalo and this season marks a milestone for them all.

If anyone took note of a Saturday afternoon gathering at the Big Tree Inn in the shadow of Ralph Wilson Stadium, some of those suspect jerseys that were seen were sporting silver numerals of the New England Patriots.

Terry Pegula Talks About Stadium's Future

Orchard Park, NY – Friday, Terry Pegula confirmed he plans on building a stadium for the Bills.

"I realize it seems to be a significant issue, but it wasn't when we bought the team. You know, we wanted to get the team first. You always have to have the prize before you can build the arena," Pegula said during his press conference.

While Pegula never used the word new, he did say Friday that he wants to build a stadium.

"We will gradually proceed to plan and design a stadium for the Buffalo Bills. You know, these things take time," he said.

As far as time goes, the Bills have eight years left on their lease in Orchard Park. A new stadium also, of course, costs a lot of money. Governor Andrew Cuomo has consistently said he is not convinced a new stadium will be necessary.

"I am very cautious about anything that would cost more money," said Cuomo earlier this year.
