Students in LeRoy display unusual neurological symptoms

A number of organizations and experts are examining a strange rash of neurological symptoms that have struck at least fifteen high school girls in LeRoy.

The symptoms include involuntary twitches and verbal outbursts that reflect the symptoms common with Tourett's syndrome.

Environmental activists, including Lois Gibbs and Erin Brockovitch, are investigating a possible connection to a toxic chemical spill in the area in 1970. Brockovitch claims that remediation of the spill was never performed.

Saturday & Sunday 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
