(Elmira Advertiser, Feb. 17, 1906). The
decision by Kennedy Valve to locate in
Elmira came after a vigorous competi-
tion over two years with twenty- one
other cities. According to the Advertiser,
“Elmira was chosen because of its un-

active Chamber of Commerce here with
a substantial working fund to back up

Daniel Kennedy (1849-1928), the
founder of the company, emigrated
from Ireland in 1866, at the age of sev-

tracks the tragic outcomes. An investi-


gation by Kaiser Health News and the
USA TODAY NETWORK has discovered
that more than 260 patients have died
since 2013 after in-and-out procedures
at surgery centers across the country.
Dozens — some as young as 2 — have
perished after routine operations, such
as colonoscopies and tonsillectomies.
Reporters examined autopsy records,
legal filings and more than 12,000 state
and Medicare inspection records, and
interviewed dozens of doctors, health
policy experts and patients throughout
the industry, in the most extensive ex-
amination of these records to date.
The investigation revealed:
z Surgery centers have steadily ex-
panded their business by taking on in-
creasingly risky surgeries. At least 14
patients have died after complex spinal
surgeries such as those that federal reg-
ulators at Medicare recently approved
for surgery centers. Even as the risks of
doing such surgeries off a hospital cam-
pus can be great, so is the reward. Doc-
tors who own a share of the center can
earn their own fee and a cut of the facil-
ity’s fee, a meaningful sum for opera-
tions that can cost $100,000 or more.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


NRA has earned its disrespect

People are up in arms about all the corporations


severing ties with the NRA. But if you ask me, they
and their supporters have done everything they
could possibly do to make themselves look bad since
the Parkland shooting in Florida.
People are online spreading hoaxes about survi-
vors being actors, and saying people who watched
their friends get shot aren’t allowed to make com-
mentary because they aren’t “political experts.”
Wayne LaPierre goes out during CPAC and reminds
us that the real victims are him and the NRA, and that
they are the ones who should be worried.
The NRA is always talking about respecting its
rights, but if you want to receive respect, you have to
give it. And the NRA has never given respect to any-
one. They never want to listen to opposing views, or
compromise on even the most ridiculous stances,
like background checks for gun purchases, which is
almost universally supported, even by gun owners.
If the NRA wants to save face, they’re going to have
to actually change. And for an organization whose
members have never ideologically challenged them,
they might not be able to. So don’t expect things to
get better. The levee has officially broke.

New designs on Haddish
EDWARDS/
WIREIMAGE “Girls Trip” star Tiffany Haddish, who famously
wore her own white Alexander McQueen dress
twice last year, is finally taking advantage of designer
loaners like this green lamé Maria Lucia Hohan gown
she wore to Thursday’s Cadillac Oscar pre-party in Los
Angeles. But she promises, “You will see the white dress
again.” (Just not at the Oscars. She says she’s leaning
toward a dress from a designer from Eritrea.)

The man was identified by the Se-

Presidents of black colleges wait for


‘next step’ after Capitol Hill conference
Deborah Barfield Berry
Montgomery Advertiser
USA TODAY NETWORK

WASHINGTON – Dozens of presidents from black


colleges and universities met last week with members
of Congress, but said they’re waiting for what concrete
steps come next.
The conference came a week after Concordia Col-
lege in Alabama announced it would close its doors
this year. Rep Terri Sewell, D-Ala., said the closing is a
sign of the struggles facing historically black colleges
and universities.
“It says that lots of HBCUs have funding problems,”
said Sewell, whose state is home to several HBCUs.
“It’s just sad because that’s 100 jobs in my hometown
of Selma. ... Keeping our doors open for HBCUs that
have been such thriving part of our educational sys-
tem” is important.
Nearly 70 presidents of HBCUs attended a daylong
conference Tuesday hosted by Sen. Tim Scott and Rep.

A better flu
vaccine is on its
way, experts say
Anne Saker
Cincinnati Enquirer
USA TODAY NETWORK

In as soon as five years, when you head out to get


your flu shot, your doctor might be offering a version
that would pack years of protection against the viral
infection that sickens thousands every winter.
Several prospects for the dreamed-of big weapon
against flu are showing promise in federal clinical
trials, says Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the Nation-
al Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in
Washington.
Demand for a universal vaccine escalated this
year as the nation struggled through the worst flu
season in 10 years.
“I’ve made a universal influenza vaccine one of my
top priorities,” Fauci told the Cincinnati Enquirer. He
also is scheduled to testify before Congress this
month about the push.

“I think we’ve been very successful


with the annual vaccine. But because
(flu) changes and shifts every year,
we haven’t been able to find a
universal target.”
Carl Fichtenbaum
University of Cincinnati Health infectious-disease specialist

“It’s going to be an iterative process, with a gradu-


ally improving version of the vaccine,” Fauci said. “It
will be a long time before we have a vaccine that cov-
ers every single potential strain of flu. But before we
get there, we’ll have universal influenza vaccine 1.0
that will cover some major strains, and we’ll get that
in five years or so. Then a few years later, we’ll have
universal influenza vaccine 2.0.”
Dr. Carl Fichtenbaum, a University of Cincinnati
Health infectious-disease specialist who closely
watches flu, said he doesn’t want the distant possi-
bility of a universal vaccine to dissuade people from
getting the yearly shot.
“It’s what we need, but it is probably a while away
yet, so I don’t think it’s something we’re going to get
very soon,” he said. “I think we’ve been very success-
ful with the annual vaccine. But because (flu)
changes and shifts every year, we haven’t been able
to find a universal target. That universal target is de-
sirable, but not on the immediate horizon.”
Influenza is a wily creature, with dozens of varie-
ties. The strains take turns predominating every sea-
son, which is Oct. 1 to March 30. This year, a fierce
version called H3N2 took hold, and by early January,
the illness was widespread and severe in all 50
states. The effect was particularly hard on children;
by mid-February, nearly 100 children had died of flu.
In the late winter of every year, federal authorities
make an educated guess about what flu strain will
circulate the next season. Based on that guess, drug
makers manufacture seasonal vaccines to meet that
year’s flu. Sometimes, they guess right, and the vac-
cine’s effectiveness approaches 65 percent. This
year’s seasonal vaccine, however, didn’t land a heavy
punch and delivered only 35 percent effectiveness
against all flu strains.

HOROSCOPE
Aries (March 21-April 19).
One scientific tweet claim-
ing that men are six times
likelier to be struck by light-
ning than women spurred a
long stream of questions. A
claim you make today will do
the same.
Taurus (April 20-May 20).
Often what’s needed is just
to act. Sometimes thinking
is more important. And then
there are the times when it
gets “meta.” Thinking into
the thinking will be neces-
sary. Observe the thoughts.
Open them for inquiry.
Gemini (May 21-June 21).
You’ve strong feelings about
something others don’t
seem fazed by. It doesn’t
mean that your feelings are
incorrect or that no one
would share them. You’re in
one situation with a few peo-
ple. Get a larger sample.
Cancer (June 22-July 22).
Some of the best speakers in
the world had terrible ner-
vousness about it, including
Mark Twain, Winston Chur-
chill and even Abraham Lin-
coln. So you’re in good com-
pany when the nerves hit
and you go on and do it any-
way.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22). Magi-
cians, politicians, filmmakers
and entertainers of all kinds
learn to control the perspec-
tive of others, drawing at-
tention to what they want
others to experience. You’ll
be called on to do this to
some extent today.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).
Read your surroundings with
attention so you can capital-
ize on opportunities that
others don’t notice. Howev-
er decent your plan may be,
you also need that backup
plan. It wouldn’t hurt to re-
verse-engineer the situa-
tion, either.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It’s
nicer to have supportive
people around you. It helps.
Sometimes it makes all the
difference. But when they’re
not around or they’re not
acting right, just remember
that it’s not their job to be-
lieve in you; it’s yours.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
Someone disappointed you,
but instead of condemning
the person, you tried to un-
derstand the situation, and
that got you over your dis-
appointment. The maturity
you gained back there will
help you with today’s situa-
tion.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec.
21). You might detach from
others slightly today, but it’s
not because you don’t care.
It’s about giving others the
room they need to handle
what matters without get-
ting in the way of the lesson.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Some say the people around

Thomas sets course record at


WGC-Mexico Championship
Steve DiMeglio
USA TODAY

MEXICO CITY – Golf is a funny game.


Justin Thomas, a winner of last
week’s Honda Classic and the No. 3-
ranked player in the world, was totally
lost in Thursday’s first round of the
World Golf Championships-Mexico
Championship, saying afterward that
he felt helpless and had never felt worse
standing over the ball.
On Friday, he found something on the
practice range.
On Saturday, he set the course rec-
ord.
Thomas, the reigning FedExCup
champion and PGA Tour player of the
year, made eight birdies and an eagle to
offset a lone bogey en route to a 9-un-
der-par 62 at the Club de Golf Chapulte-
pec. Jordan Spieth held the previous
course record with a 63 in last year’s
third round of the WGC-Mexico Cham-
pionship.
“Obviously, it was a great day,”
Thomas said. “Who knows what’s going
to happen, but I’m definitely moving in
the right direction.”
