A baby born two years ago with the AIDS virus in Mississippi may have been cured. The little girl, now 2 years old, was put on antiretroviral therapy within hours of birth. Researchers say whether the cure is complete and permanent, or only partial and long-lasting, is not certain. Either way, the highly unusual case raises hope for the more than 300,000 babies born with the infection around the world each year.

A follow up story from last week: Three days after dropping an African-American talk format, Milwaukee Radio Alliance launched "1290 Martini Radio". Core artist of the new format include old timers Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Tony Bennett and newer artists like Michael Buble, Adele and Norah Jones.

Sign-ups for the 15th Annual Brewers Racing Sausage's 5K Run/Walk began Friday. Participants run the course along side the Klement's Racing Sausages at Miller Park. The overall top male and female finisher will receive a year's worth of Klement's meat products. This Brewers Community Foundation event will be held on July 20th.

The Wisconsin-Illinois Cat Fanciers present their second annual "Cat in the Hat" Pedigreed & Household Pet Cat Show, Friday through Sunday at the Cudahy Kennel Club in St. Francis. Cats and their humans will arrive from across the country to compete for national points in what is one of the region's biggest shows. Visitors can meet-and-greet unusual breeds like the Ragdolls and local rescues will have kitties available for adoption.
