PKG On the foothills of the White mountains of New Hampshire--is the town of Gorham--described by residents as a small--tight knit community. ((002248 Jason Watson/Gorham Resident "I grew up here almost all my life. Your parents knew what you did before you even got home" 002253)) That's why residents say they were shocked--to hear that 34 year old Nathaniel Kibby--was arrested Monday--for the kidnapping of Conway New Hampshire teen--Abigail Hernandez. ((000932 David Holt/Neighbor "people come here to get away from this type of stuff I bet you half of these cars in this neighborhood still have the keys in the ignition at night 000940)) Kibby allegedly kidnapped the then 14 year old teen last October. Police say Hernandez returned home--on July 20th--nine months later. ((001423, Jane Young/ Prosecutor " this child is home - she is relatively safe" - 001428, )) Police arrested Kibby at his home in a Gorham trailer park--about thirty miles North of Conway--without incident. He was arraigned Tuesday and is being held on one million dollars bail. And Hernandez was in court Tuesday--to face the man who allegedly kidnapped her. ((001605, Jane Young "I cannot tell you how a child like that can get through nine months and endure - but she has done that 001612, so that proves to us that she has a level of strength that not many of us would have 001617,")) No details further details surrounding Hernandez's disaperance--are being released--including if Hernandez and Kibby--knew each other before--or if Hernandez was even at the Gorham residence. Prosecutors would also not say if Hernandez was being held against her will. But--an active crime scene has been ongoing at Kibby's Gorham home--since early Monday morning. And neighbors describe Kibby--as a loner. ((000545 Gerald Steele/Neighbor "he's quiet he kept to himself he'd say hi every once in a while." 000549)) The FBI--state and local police--taped off a large portion of the Gorham trailer park--including a red storage container in Kibby's backyard--that surprised neighbors. ((00829 David Holt/Neighbor "I didn't know that they allow that in this park. I know it's a problem in the town of gorham I know there's been issues in the past with people putting these containers." 000838)) One Gorham resident describes Kibby--as strange. ((002222 Jason Watson/Resident "just kind of a sketchy individual. I didn't know him on a super personal basis but I've known him from around the area I've known his name he was kind of iffy. "002231)) Again we have very little information about what actually transpired here. The investigation is ongoing--and more information is expected to be released later on. As of now Kibby is the only one charged in this case--but prosecutors say more charges could be forthcoming if they receive information--to indicate others were involved--or if more charges need to be brought against Kibby.

19} CHILDPROTECTION11_INTRO


Vermont Attorney General Bill Sorrell says the state must place a child's safety over the family's rights -- and wants to let the public sit-in on abuse cases. Political reporter Kyle Midura reports.

20} CHILDPROTECTION11_PKG


The State's top lawyer wants the sunlight of open court to shine on some of the state's darkest cases. Attorney General Bill Sorrell says family court should be open to the public when arguments cover child abuse and neglect, or the termination of parental rights. He says doing so would allow more scrutiny of social workers, attorneys, and judges -- all while highlighting the scope of the problem for the public. ((3:37 - :47 - AG Bill Sorrell So more openness for what has thus far been secret proceedings and I think the more the public knows, the more we can protect kids.)) The recommendation is one of five Sorrell made to members of the Child Protection Committee Tuesday. The group formed to answer public outcry following the deaths of two-young children -- left with families despite concerning signs found during visits by social workers. Sorrell's other suggestions include: - creating a state statute expressing the risk posed to a child from an opiate-addicted caregiver - assigning oversight of attorneys working these to the judges - a law to hold parents responsible when they permit abuse but don't commit it - and one expressly indicating the possession or production of pornography as a threat to children ((5:59 - :03 - Bill Young I'm troubled by the idea of opening the cases to the public)) Before his retirement a decade ago, Bill Young led the department which dealt with child protection at the time. He worries opening proceedings to the public won't be better for children -- especially sexual assault victims. ((8:26 - :35 I can't get past a law that would make what was done to them as a small child -- when they had no control over thier life -- follow them publicly)) Young says he supports Sorrell's other suggestions. During his testimony today, the Attorney General highlighted nine horror story cases where children were allowed to remain with homeless, drug-addicted, parents manufacturing meth in the home, and one put in the custody of a relative too feeble to care for the child.

You could call her a horse whisperer. ((NATS 00:04:41 "C'mon Bosies. Hang in there dear.)) Her clients call her Kreepy. ((Sage Tallman/Bo's owner 00:31:36 "It's not everyday you meet a horse masseuse. But when you need one, Kreepy is your go to person.")) Krietta "Kreepy" Phillips knows when horses are in pain. ((Kreepy 00:01:15 "I'm looking for signs from him. He'll flinch. He'll flick his head.")) Today she's at Northfork Horse Farm in Charlotte -- working with Sage Tallman's 10 year old thoroughbred percheron. Bo is a competitive jumper with a back injury. ((Sage Tallman/Bo's owner 00:31:13 "Bo's been really receptive" 00:30:06 "he basically just got his first massage and had a really good response to it. Now he's just on a maintenance program.")) ((NATS Kreepy 00:00:51 "when I first get a referral on a horse, there are three areas I check: atlas pull, neck/shoulders and back area.")) After 30 years in a kindergarten classroom -- Kreepy hung up her teaching hat to take on a new project. She got certified in equine sports massage and electro-acupressure. Five years later -- her business Vermont Equine Bodyworks -- is booming. ((Krietta Phillips/horse masseuse 00:24:09 "I've done up to ten a day and after that there's not much left of me.")) It's hands on work. A typical session takes an hour. To get horses performing at their peak -- she evaluates, massages and stretches each one. ((JR 04:01 "will any horse let you do this?" KP: yeah, yeah.")) 90-percent of her equine clients require a more intense form of therapy -- called electro-stimulation. Kreepy places electrodes on specific accu-points. Then the electric current goes to work -- deeply penetrating the affected muscles. ((Kreepy 00:14:02 "some horses don't mind it at all. Some it takes a few minutes to just figure out what's going on with their muscles here.")) Bo's were bouncing within seconds. Then ...deep relaxation. ((Kreepy 00:15:49 "His eyes will start to droop. Their head starts going down. They'll start yawning.")) ((JR 27:06 "Do some people think this is hocus pocus and it doesn't work? KP: I think there are. I just say, let me work on your horse and then go see how it performs.")) Despite their size -- Kreepy says horses' muscles are much more sensitive than humans' -- and require less electric current. We put her therapy to the test. ((Kreepy 00:18:19 "we're going to set you up at the same setting. That was Bo's setting.")) My muscles barely moved. Then Kreepy cranked it. With the human setting -- the shock and twitch were intense. ((Kreepy 19:11 JENNIFER: oh my gosh! Yeah, yeah)) Kreepy grew up racing -- and understands the demands of competition. ((Krietta Phillips/horse masseuse 23:30 "It's the most incredible feeling I get throughout my body. It's almost like I've gone an done a race, it's a whole endorphin high for me.")) Knowing her way around the horse show world -- helps business too. ((Krietta Phillips/horse masseuse 00:23:13 "One horse has sort of led me to another." 00:25:46 "There are a lot of people who don't do a good job so when you're good, the word gets out there.")) It's an odd job that rakes in a solid paycheck. Kreepy says equine bodywork specialists can earn upward of 50-thousand dollars a year. ((Krietta Phillips/horse masseuse 00:26:00 "The vets will tell you, it's something that's more new than chiropractic is. It's sort of coming into itself."))

((001605, Jane Young "I cannot tell you how a child like that can get through nine months and endure - but she has done that 001612, so that proves to us that she has a level of strength that not many of us would have 001617,")) No details further details surrounding Hernandez's disaperance--are being released--including if Hernandez and Kibby--knew each other before--or if Hernandez was even at the Gorham residence. Prosecutors would also not say if Hernandez was being held against her will. But--an active crime scene has been ongoing at Kibby's Gorham home--since early Monday morning. And neighbors describe Kibby--as a loner. ((000545 Gerald Steele/Neighbor "he's quiet he kept to himself he'd say hi every once in a while." 000549)) The FBI--state and local police--taped off a large portion of the Gorham trailer park--including a red storage container in Kibby's backyard--that surprised neighbors.

I know it's a problem in the town of gorham I know there's been issues in the past with people putting these containers." 000838)) One Gorham resident describes Kibby--as strange.

Vermont Attorney General Bill Sorrell says the state must place a child's safety over the family's rights -- and wants to let the public sit-in on abuse cases. Political reporter Kyle Midura reports.

9} CHILDPROTECTION11_PKG


The State's top lawyer wants the sunlight of open court to shine on some of the state's darkest cases. Attorney General Bill Sorrell says family court should be open to the public when arguments cover child abuse and neglect, or the termination of parental rights. He says doing so would allow more scrutiny of social workers, attorneys, and judges -- all while highlighting the scope of the problem for the public. ((3:37 - :47 - AG Bill Sorrell So more openness for what has thus far been secret proceedings and I think the more the public knows, the more we can protect kids.)) The recommendation is one of five Sorrell made to members of the Child Protection Committee Tuesday. The group formed to answer public outcry following the deaths of two-young children -- left with families despite concerning signs found during visits by social workers. Sorrell's other suggestions include: - creating a state statute expressing the risk posed to a child from an opiate-addicted caregiver - assigning oversight of attorneys working these to the judges - a law to hold parents responsible when they permit abuse but don't commit it - and one expressly indicating the possession or production of pornography as a threat to children ((5:59 - :03 - Bill Young I'm troubled by the idea of opening the cases to the public)) Before his retirement a decade ago, Bill Young led the department which dealt with child protection at the time. He worries opening proceedings to the public won't be better for children -- especially sexual assault victims. ((8:26 - :35 I can't get past a law that would make what was done to them as a small child -- when they had no control over thier life -- follow them publicly)) Young says he supports Sorrell's other suggestions. During his testimony today, the Attorney General highlighted nine horror story cases where children were allowed to remain with homeless, drug-addicted, parents manufacturing meth in the home, and one put in the custody of a relative too feeble to care for the child.

A new study from the American Heart Association finds heart attack patients who arrive at the hospital during the evening or on weekends or holidays have a 13 percent higher risk of dying compared to patients who arrive during normal workday hours. Researchers blame the discrepancy on hospital staffing. If someone has an emergency in the middle of the night, doctors often need to be paged and called in for surgery and that takes time. (vo) New research links problem drinking in midlife to memory loss later in life. Doctors in England followed more than 6-thousand adults for 18 years. They found adults who admitted to alcohol abuse at some point in their lives were twice as likely to have severe memory problems as they got older. But researchers caution that not everyone has to stay away from alcohol altogether, studies have shown an occasional glass of red wine may actually reduce the risk of dementia. (vo) And a new study suggests parents who spend more time cooking at home, have children who make healthier food choices away from home.
