AMID WHAT THE C-D-C CALLS THE "BIGGEST AND MOST COMPLEX EBOLA OUTBREAK IN HISTORY," THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL PUT ITS EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTER ON ITS HIGHEST STATE OF ALERT -- BRINGING IN EXTRA STAFF AND WORKING THEM LONG HOURS.

OFFICIALS HAVE ALSO REACHED OUT TO THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION AND OTHER INTERNATIONAL AGENCIES.

THERE, THE CASES INCLUDE A SPANISH PRIEST WHO CONTRACTED THE DISEASE; HE'LL BE TREATED IN MADRID -- HAVING BEEN FLOWN BACK TO SPAIN JUST AS TWO AMERICANS WERE TAKEN BACK TO THE UNITED STATES.

"Look, we've had two people who got it but you want to wait a couple of weeks to see that they don't get terrible side effects, livers aren't destroyed, they don't die all of a sudden from some unexpected consequence."

THE PRESIDENT ECHOED THOSE CONCERNS AT THE U-S/AFRICA LEADERS SUMMIT ON WEDNESDAY.

"I think we've gotta let the science guide us. And I don't think all the information's in on whether this drug is helpful."

INVESTIGATORS ARE STILL NOT SAYING WHO PULLED THE TRIGGER.

NBC2 CONFIRMED THE STATE ATTORNEY'S OFFICE WILL REVIEW THE CASE.

JUST YESTERDAY A JUDGE DISMISSED A PETITION FOR A RESTRAINING ORDER.

MONROIG'S EX-WIFE, SAYS SHE AND HER CHILDREN ARE AFRAID OF YOUNG, BECAUSE THEY DON'T KNOW WHETHER YOUNG KILLED HIM.

SHE SAYS IT WAS HIS TURN TO HAVE THE KIDS THAT WEEKEND, AND THEY COULD HAVE BEEN SHOT.

YOUNG'S ATTORNEY DISAGREED WITH THE NEED FOR THE RESTRAINING ORDER. Return to index of stories...


AMY YOUNG COURT-SOTVO, PLASMA


Donald Day/ Young's Attorney: Simply saying i'm afraid is not enough there must be some sufficient factual basis for the court to conclude. 8

Nina Diaz-Monroig/ Requesting Restraining Order: I don't know her state of mind. I havent been given any information by the Lee County Department to feel where I am secure that my children are going to be safe. 12

THE JUDGE SAID THERE WAS NO ADMISSIBLE EVIDENCE FOR HIM TO ISSUE A RESTRAINING ORDER.

SINCE THE CHILDREN HAVEN'T TESTIFIED, HE CAN'T KNOW IF DIAZ-MONROIG IS TELLING THE TRUTH.

WE ASKED DIAZ-MONROIG IF SHE WAS GOING TO PURSUE THIS ANY FURTHER, AND HOW SHE KNEW WHAT HAPPENED THE NIGHT OF THE SHOOTING.

NBC-2'S LUCAS SEILER IS LIVE IN THE STUDIO - LUCAS, WHY DOES LEE NEED TO HIRE SO MANY NEW TEACHERS? Return to index of stories...


BACK 2 SCHOOL-PLASMA


WELL, THERE ARE A FEW REASONS BEHIND IT - THE BIG ONE IS THE FACT THAT LEE SCHOOLS ARE GROWING AT A VERY FAST PACE EVERY YEAR. ALTHOUGH WE FOUND OUT SOME SCHOOLS AREN'T PERFORMING AS WELL AS THEY SHOULD BE, SO THAT'S ANOTHER REASON THEY'RE BRINGING THESE NEW EDUCATORS IN. Return to index of stories...

THIS WILL ALL BE HAPPENING AT SOUTH FORT MYERS HIGH SCHOOL STARTING IN ABOUT AN HOUR AND A HALF.

HERE'S WHAT'S INTERESTING - A LOT OF THESE FIRST-YEAR TEACHERS ARE GOING TO BE TEACHING MATH AND SCIENCE. THE SCHOOL DISTRICT TELLS US THOSE ARE THEY TYPES OF TEACHERS WHO ARE REALLY IN HIGH DEMAND. BUT THEY'RE REALLY BEING PICKY ABOUT WHO THEY HIRE.
