Couple continues transplant after theft

February 1, 2011

It's been almost three months since a Newton couple was robbed of money for a double-lung transplant.

Patty and Ken Arnold are in the early stages of the transplant process at Duke University Medical Center in Durham and are continuing with Ken's procedure — with or without the money.

The Arnolds never recovered the $1,100 in cash stolen from them Nov. 6 when a supposed stranded driver asked Patty for a ride. The stranger was in the car momentarily before she jumped out of the back seat, taking Patty's wallet and the money donated to the Arnolds from American Legion Post 48.

No timeline for Zahra indictment

February 1, 2011

The District Attorney's Office won't provide a timeline for a possible indictment in the Zahra Baker case, saying they'll take their time reviewing the massive case file.

Hickory Police Department submitted its case file Monday detailing interviews, documents and other data in the investigation of 10-year-old Zahra's death. Now, the District Attorney's Office is charged with sifting through that information, which amounts to more than 30,000 pages of documents.

Reaching for a goal

February 1, 2011

Catawba County is thousands of miles away from Tucson, Ariz., where Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was seriously injured in a Jan. 8 shooting rampage.

But as Giffords recovers, her therapy mimics the therapy received by many Catawba County patients, who struggle every day to recover from once life-threatening conditions.

Giffords is currently undergoing treatment for her injuries at a Houston inpatient rehabilitation center, much like the rehabilitation center at Catawba Valley Medical Center in Hickory.
