The 25,000 or so folks who call Cookeville home are not preternaturally opposed to big corporations. To the contrary, none of the seven banks in town are locally owned anymore and they haven't suffered for business as a result. Similarly, you wouldn't know there were any family-owned eateries from the solid wall of fast-food joints that lines the stretch of road between town square and the interstate. But the residents draw the line at franchised health care.

St. Jude administrator Richard Shadyac called it "a holiday miracle." Game rules bar the legal transfer of winning pieces from one person to another.

A woman being treated for a stomach ailment was missing for 16 days before a Nashville hospital nurse came across her body three flights up--on a storage floor. Distraught relatives demanded to know how Mildred Lancaster, 69, could have been overlooked during repeated searches of Meharry-Hubbard Hospital and its grounds. Hospital officials are seeking to learn how Lancaster managed to get to the 10th floor, which is not in use.

On one side of this capital city sits Hubbard Hospital, a gleaming 400-bed facility managed by historically black Meharry Medical School. The 11-story hospital, built 13 years ago, is struggling to find enough patients to fill its beds and clinic. It is so under-utilized that two whole floors are empty. Without enough patients to train its physicians, Meharry, a school that has produced nearly four of every 10 black doctors and dentists in the nation, could quickly go under.

One day after a drag-racing car plowed into a crowd at a charity event, witnesses questioned why the driver was allowed to speed down a multilane highway with no guardrails, lined on both sides by hundreds of spectators. Two more people died, raising the death toll to six. A Tennessee Highway Patrol spokesman said the victims were in their teens and early 20s. The accident injured at least 18 others, including a 5-year-old boy, who were taken to hospitals in Tennessee and Mississippi.

Other students tackled the gunman minutes after he stalked through the tiny campus of the Appalachian School of Law where he wounded three others during the shooting spree.
