Page 2A — Herald-Zeitung — Saturday, June 25, 2005Second case of mad cow disease confirmed in US
WASHINGTON (AP) — Tests have confirmed mad cow disease in what appears to be the first case in a U.S. bom animal, the Agriculture Department said Friday. Officials would not specify where the case turned up, but Agriculture Secretary Mike fohanns said there is no evidence the cow was imported.
An internationally recognized laboratory in Weybridge, England, con-finned the case after U.S. tests produced conflicting results, Johanns said. The animal had been tested last year and cleared of having the disease.
New tests were ordered two weeks ago. Those results came back positive, leading officials to seek confirmation from the Weybridge lab. The department also performed more tests at its lab in Ames, Iowa.
The first case of mad cow disease in the United States was confirmed in December 2003. It turned up in Washington state in a dairy cow imported from Canada.
I Inman health is not at risk in the new case, Johanns said. The animal was a 'downer,’’ meaning it was unable to walk.
“I am encouraged that our interlocking safeguards are working exactly as intended," Johanns said at a news conference.

INFANT DIES AFTER BEING LEFT IN TRUCK 4 HOURS - A
6-month-old girl died after her father forgot to drop her off at a day-care center and left her in his truck about four hours, police said.
Mika Michele Terry was pronounced dead Thursday afternoon at a hospital.
The 32-year-old father had gone to Ranch I louse Cowboy Church in Maypearl to do some construction work, and several hours later he realized his daughter was in the back of his four-door pickup, said Et. Danny Williams of the Ellis County Sheriff’s Department.
The father, whose name was not released, is cooperating with
authorities, Williams said.
When the investigation is completed, the Ellis County District Attorney’s Office will determine whether any charges will be filed, Williams said.

The blaze has burned about 46,000 acres and forced the evacuation of 250 homes.
FIREFIGHTERS GAIN UPPER HAND ON WILDFIRES -
Residents who fled a windblown wildfire began returning home as the blaze turned away from their upscale community near Phoenix, and firefighters also gained ground on a wildfire that burned homes in California.
“We want to get a message out: Come back home,” Sheriff Joe Arpaio said Friday as evacuees returned to the Tonto Hills neighborhood. “We’ll protect you. We’ll escort you to your residence."
The order was lifted late Thursday, and Arpaio said about 67 people had returned by Friday morning to the subdivision of some 120 million-dollar houses 20 miles northeast of Phoenix. Authorities were still assessingTEHRAN, Iran
HARDLINE TEHRAN MAYOR WINS IRAN PRESIDENTIAL RACE - The hardline Tehran mayor steamrolled over one of Iran’s best known statesman to win the presidency Saturday in a landslide election victory that cements conservative control over nation’s political leadership. The outcome capped a stunning upset by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who many reformers fear will take Iran back to the restrictions imposed after the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
The Interior Ministry gave Ahmadinejad 61.8 percent of the vote over his relatively more moderate rival, Ayatollah I lasheini Rafsanjani, who had 35.7 percent.
