WASHINGTON, D.C. — Chief United States District Judge William K. Sessions III of Cornwall was confirmed today by the Senate as chair of the United States Sentencing Commission. Sessions had been nominated for this post by President Barack Obama on April 20, 2009.
An update just rolled in from the Vermont Department of Health: The department has confirmed cases of H1N1 influenza in all regions of the state, and increased levels of influenza-like illness are being reported in most regions.
Vermont will report “widespread” influenza activity for the week ending Oct. 17 to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Most U.S. states (41) have already reported widespread activity levels.
That "widespread" activity was slower to hit New England than other parts of the country.
