Question of the Day
ALBUQUERQUE — A special curriculum aimed at tackling the growing prevalence of diabetes among American Indian children has been developed by health officials, tribal leaders and educators from across the country.
Teachers who work with Indian students in New Mexico and neighboring states will have a chance this fall to incorporate the curriculum into their lessons.
Officials with the national Diabetes Education in Tribal Schools project say the disease is an epidemic in Indian country, and prevention needs to start with children in the classroom.
A handful of educators were being trained Monday in Albuquerque to introduce the program to schools throughout New Mexico, Arizona and parts of Colorado and Utah. The effort follows testing of the curriculum last year by a few dozen tribal schools.
American fugitive back from Israel
HARRISBURG — A Pennsylvania man wanted for questioning about a fire that damaged a judge’s car was in a U.S. jail Monday after spending 20 months as a fugitive in Israel, authorities said.
Micky Mayon of Steelton was being held at a jail in Dauphin County, Pa., in lieu of $2 million bail after his arraignment on charges of flight to avoid apprehension, illegal possession of firearms and failure to appear in court, Steelton police said.
Mr. Mayon, who is in his early 30s, was apprehended in a Tel Aviv rooming house last week by Israeli immigration officials who said they planned to deport him. Agents of the U.S. Marshals Service accompanied Mayon on the flight from Israel, and Steelton police took him into custody when he arrived Monday at Philadelphia International Airport, police said.
Steelton police want to question Mr. Mayon about the June 2007 torching of a car at the home of Harrisburg District Judge Steven Semic, who had ordered him to stand trial on disorderly-conduct and related charges stemming from a disturbance two months earlier.
