  • Timothy Jerrell Cunningham called out of work sick at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 10 days ago and hasn’t been heard from since, police say. >> Read more trending news His father, Terrell Cunningham, said something must be wrong.  When the 35-year-old’s parents arrived in Atlanta from Maryland, they used a spare key to enter the house and found Timothy’s car, keys, wallet and phone, WSB-TV reported.  'It's not the type of news you want to hear,” Terrell Cunningham said. “Your child is missing. Thirty-five years old, but always your child.' The father said his son is an accomplished man who graduated from Morehouse and earned a master’s degree and doctorate from Harvard University. As an epidemic intelligence officer, Timothy Cunningham has been deployed for public health emergencies, including superstorm Sandy, Ebola and Zika.  It’s unusual for him not to contact family, his father said. 'This is not normal,” Terrell Cunningham said. “This is definitely out of the ordinary.' Family and friends hope the missing man will be found safe.  Timothy Cunningham is 6 feet tall and weighs about 200 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call 911.

  • A bipartisan group of governors working to strike compromise on hot-button policy issues will take on the health care question at an event Friday. Republican Gov. John Kasich, of Ohio, Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, of Colorado, and Alaska Gov. Bill Walker, an independent, are among governors scheduled to headline a briefing at the National Press Club in Washington to discuss their latest ideas for improving the nation's health care system. Their blueprint, a copy of which was provided to The Associated Press, lays out a host of ideas for improving affordability, restoring stability, promoting flexibility so that states can innovate and eliminating duplicative and burdensome insurance regulations. The governors urge the federal government to restore insurer subsidies that were stopped by Republican President Donald Trump, triggering sharp increases in premiums this year. They also seek more outreach to help sign people up for coverage. Last year, the Trump administration slashed the ad budget for the Affordable Care Act's 2018 sign-up season. The governors also recommend action to shield insurers from the full cost of treatment for patients with very expensive conditions. That's called 're-insurance' in industry jargon. Alaska has already implemented such a program, with the blessing of the federal government, and it helped control premiums in that state. The idea has bipartisan support in Congress, but the outlook is uncertain. Their proposal doesn't merely call for federal government action, it also provides examples of effective state efforts that can be used as examples at both the federal and state levels, said Greg Moody, who leads Kasich's Office of Health Transformation. The blueprint incorporates agreeable solutions that states have found, for example, to streamlining regulations and cutting Medicaid costs, he said. Kasich, Hickenlooper and Walker are joined in the effort by Nevada's Brian Sandoval, a Republican, and Pennsylvania's Tom Wolf, a Democrat. A guiding principle of the group's work, according to the document, is to 'reject false choices' — items that are leading to some of the biggest disagreements around the nation over health care. For instance, it's not necessary to choose between ensuring high quality care and reducing costs, or between being fiscally responsible and being generous and humane, the group argues. They say a quality health care system can foster individual accountability and at the same time support people in need. ___ Associated Press Health Care Reporter Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar in Washington contributed to this report.
  • A man was followed after a Buckhead bar fight and shot as he was driving, police said. Investigators are not sure where the shooting took place early Friday, but say the man managed to drive himself to a Hampton Inn on Piedmont Road and ask for help. According to Channel 2 Action News, the fight originally took place at the Whisky Mistress bar on Maple Drive. After the scuffle, the victim left the bar, got into his Audi and drove off, the news station reported. At some point, the shooter opened fire. “Somewhere between the Whisky Mistress and the Hampton Inn, the suspect fired one shot toward the victim’s vehicle,' Capt. Andrew Senzer told Channel 2. 'That round penetrated the vehicle and struck the victim.' The injured man had a gun, too. However, there is no evidence he returned fire, police said. He was taken to Atlanta Medical Center in stable condition and is expected to survive, Senzer said. The gunman is still on the loose. “We’re trying to locate an actual crime scene where the shooting occurred,” Senzer said. This is the fourth time this week someone has been shot while driving. The others occurred early Thursday. Someone in an SUV drove around the city and randomly shot two people, police said. Two people were arrested in connection with those shootings. RELATED: 2 arrested in connection with series of random shootings A father was killed hours later in front of his children after someone opened fire on their car as they pulled into their DeKalb County subdivision, police said. No arrests have been made in that case, but authorities are investigating if the incident is related to the two shootings in Atlanta.

  • Before his death, Rev. Billy Graham chose one of his favorite Scripture verses from the Bible to be placed on his grave marker. >> Read more trending news Graham selected John 14:6 and the following inscription to be on his marker: BILLY GRAHAM NOVEMBER 7, 1918 – FEBRUARY 21, 2018 PREACHER OF THE GOSPEL OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST JOHN 14:16 John 14:6 reads, “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.'” >> Evangelist Billy Graham dies at 99 The verse was central in Graham’s preaching ministry, and he often referred to it throughout his life. Graham will be buried next to his late wife, Ruth Bell Graham, who died June 14, 2007. The couple’s caskets were designed and built by inmates at the nation’s largest maximum security prison, Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola, Louisiana. >> Photos: Billy Graham through the years While touring the correctional facility after preaching there in 2005, Graham’s son, Franklin, saw caskets being built. Inmates at Angola make caskets for other inmates who cannot afford to buy one. Franklin was moved by this and requested that inmates make caskets for his mother and father. The caskets are made of plywood and lined with a mattress pad. A wooden cross is nailed to the top of the casket. The Graham family requested no upgrades to the plywood casket, only a few modifications to allow the casket to be transported easily.
