New York Doctor Has Ebola
NEW YORK (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the New York doctor who has tested positive for Ebola sought help with a 100.3-degree fever, not a higher temperature.
In appearance on CNN, the governor said Spencer "presented himself" to the hospital when he had a 100-point-3 fever ... not 103 ... as has been reported." He repeated the comment on another morning program.
Cuomo says Dr. Craig Spencer acted responsibly, even though he rode the subway, bowled and rode a cab. The governor said the doctor obviously felt he wasn't symptomatic" when he went out "in a limited way."
Spencer recently returned to the city after treating Ebola patients in West Africa.
As a doctor, Cuomo said Spencer knew you're not contagious until you're symptomatic.
Spencer tested positive for the virus on Thursday. He is the first case in the city.

Street Painting Man Says He'll Fight Charges
BURGETTSTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania man will hire an attorney and fight a criminal mischief charge for painting the speed limit on a stretch of Main Street. Fifty-five-year-old John Cherok II lives and owns a bookstore in Burgettstown.
When he appeared at before a magistrate on Thursday, he refused to pay $540 to clean the road plus a small fine. Instead, Cherok says he'll fight. The magistrate postponed Cherok's preliminary hearing until Nov. 20 to give him time to hire an attorney. Cherok painted the message "Slow, 25 MPH" on the pavement because he says too many cars speed on the road, some up to 50 mph. Some township officials sympathize, but they say Cherok shouldn't have taken matters - and a paint brush - into his own hands.
