The Elkhart County Parks Board today has a better idea what needs to be done to shore up the Goshen Dam.
An engineer’s report recommends covering the rock-filled mesh gabions with a grout.
The study also calls for working on the earthen bank between the dam and the mill race to retard erosion...
The county is also waiting for a department of natural resources report to find out what work will be needed on the spillway itself.
Parks officials anticipate the D-N-R will recommend redoing the face of the dam… pressure grouting inside the structure… and installing a permanent stilling basin to fight erosion downstream...
There’s no estimate at this time how much the work will cost… or when the D-N-R report will be complete.
In health news today…
Stem cell research is pointing scientists in a new direction concerning cardiovascular disease.
Researchers from Emory University and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute compared levels of endothelial progenitor
cells in forty-five men and found the lowest levels had the highest risk for developing the disease.
The two worst common forms of cardiovascular disease are heart attack and stroke.
The study can be found in the New England Journal of Medicine.
And in related health news…
Emory researchers have also established a link between two classes of AIDS drugs and cardiovascular disease risk.
The study finds two forms of anti-retroviral therapy may alter the way the body metabolizes triglycerides, or blood fats.
Researchers studied men and women who took either protease inhibitors or drugs called “N-N-R-T-I-S” and compared levels of a triglyceride marker to volunteers not on the therapy.
They found all patients on the drugs had elevated levels of the triglyceride marker.
Experts say further study is needed to confirm these results, but this finding could mean anti-retroviral therapy elevates the risk of cardiovascular disease.
This study is being presented today at the 10th conference on retroviruses and opportunistic infections in Boston.
A new study is yielding good news for parents of children with peanut allergies… research suggests some patients may eventually outgrow the allergy.
The study of 80 children with established peanut allergies found that more than half had no reaction when exposed to the nuts.
But two of those 64 had suspicious reactions after eating peanuts again.
Experts say the findings suggest that in some patients, the allergy may come and go.. And recommend kids diagnosed with peanut allergy be re-tested every year or two.
This study was conducted at Johns Hopkins children’s center and is published in this month’s issue of the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
President Bush is making the last stop in his five-nation African tour in as many days, with a visit to Nigeria this morning.
President Bush arrived in the Nigerian capital Saturday morning to a ceremonious welcome.
Bush was greeted by Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo, who
has been at the forefront of resolving regional disputes in Africa.
The two heads of state are expected to discuss the situation in Liberia and the possibility of the United States contributing peacekeeping troops to help bolster a multi-national African force already in the war-torn West African nation.
