Anthrax Fears Spread to Midwest
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - The fear of
anthrax spread to the Midwest on
Thursday with a preliminary finding of
contamination at a Kansas City, Mo.,
postal facility. Investigators established
a link between the death of a woman in
New York and more dian a dozen cases
of the disease elsewhere in the country.
The bacteria that killed Kathy T.
Nguyen were “indistinguishable from all
the others,” including the strain in a letter
to Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle,
said Dr. Steven Ostroff of the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention. Officials
said they had not yet learned how the
woman became sick.
Nearly one month into America’s
bioterrorism scare, the threat seemed to
be receding in the nation’s capital, but

New Jersey asked the Bush administra
tion for hurry-up help in testing more
than one thousand postal facilities. It
appears the state “is the front line of the
anthrax attack on our nation,” wrote act
ing Gov. Donald T. DiFrancesco.
In a cmel irony, officials said the sus
pected spores found in Kansas City had
likely been exported from the nation’s
“The assumption at this point is that
this is a contamination process from
Brentwood,” the main postal facility in
Washington, D.C., that has been shut
down for more than a week, said Rex
Archer, the Kansas City health director.
The idea is that spores “setded out of the
air and got on these envelopes.”
The preliminary test results at a spe
cialty postal facility - coupled with the dis
covery of spores at a private Indiana com
Gene Wilson, R-Watauga, - would have
had to run against each other. Under the
adopted plan the two representatives
were placed in separate districts.
The redistricting discussion conclud
ed on a heated note. House Speaker Jim
Black, D-Mecklenburg, abrupdy ended
the debate even though several
Republican members were waiting for
their chance to speak.
As Black began to call for a vote on
the bill, several Republican members
jumped from their seats and angrily
pany - marked the first known spread of
spores off the East Coast in the nation’s
month-long struggle with bioterrorism.
The results were predictable.
More than 170 area postal workers in
the Kansas City area joined thousands of
other Americans on antibiotics, and local
officials moved to reassure the public.
The positive test results came from
swabs taken on two bags of employees’
trash in the first-day cancellation section
of the Stamp Fulfillment Center, said
Gary Stone, the facility’s manager. At a
news conference, he said that the affect
ed portion of the facility had been closed
and that it had its own ventilation system.
“The mail that we found and
sequestered, which is where the samples
tested positive, did not come through
the mail stream with any letter that
might end up in your home,” he said.
screamed at Black to be allowed to
speak. Black ignored their cries and con
tinued to call for the vote.
Many of the chamber’s Republican
members were already angered by
Black’s unwillingness to allow any
Republican amendment to be heard.
Only one amendment was intro
duced on the House floor Thursday -
and it passed by a 117-3 vote. But
Republicans claimed that they had 10 to
12 other amendments that Black did not
allow them to introduce.
“The idea that you can only intro
duce Democratic amendments is not
right,” said House Minority Leader Rep.
Leo Daughtry, R-Johnston. “You have
not treated the Republican party fairly,
but, more importandy, you haven’t
treated the people of this state fairly.”

bombing campaign by pinpointing tar
gets and coordinating with opposition
forces. He mentioned no specific num
ber but said he hoped for a three- or
fourfold increase from the current num
ber, which is between 100 and 200.
“We have a number of teams cocked
and ready to go," he told a Pentagon
news conference on the 26th day of
U.S. bombing. “It’s just a matter of hav
ing the right kind of equipment to get
them there in the landing zones ...
where it’s possible to get in and get out,
and we expect that to happen."
He said the plan includes placing U.S.
troops with a wider ring of rebel forces, in
both northern and southern Afghanistan.
The United States also is supplying
rebels with ammunition and arms “as
fast as we can,” once liaison forces make
sure the supplies will be used and not
sold, he said.
The Republicans became further irri
tated when Black abruptly ended the
debate and immediately called a press
conference to decry Black’s actions.
“When (Black) decided that the rules
didn’t apply he decided ... that the peo
ple of this state didn’t need a constitu
tion, didn’t need to be represented by
the state of North Carolina,” said Rep.
Sam Ellis, R-Wake.
Republican members said a lawsuit
would be filled because they felt Black
had violated not only the rules of the
House but also of the state Constitution.
“We saw a tyranny today,” said Rep.
Art Pope, R-Wake. “The courts will
intervene to enforce the constitution.”
