The Centers for Disease Control discovered the possibility after investigating four patients who received organs from a Georgia donor-- a woman who possibly became infected through transfusions.

Leon Whitmer and his neighbors live on Trinkle Avenue... This summer-- signs went up along Williamson Road making it illegal to turn left onto their street between nine at night and three in the morning. The city is hoping to discourage folks from cruising Williamson Road-- by making it harder to find a place to turn around. But Whitmer and his neighbors say NOT being able to turn into their neighborhood just isn't fair.

Preston and Christian Avenue are the other two streets also affected. Yesterday-- Whitmer took his concerns and a petition signed by a little more than 100- people to city council. He says, for the most part, he left the meeting satisfied. Council admitted the signs are an inconvenience for the neighborhood-- and agreed to study the problem in more detail.
