bonnieb@herald-mail.com On Oct. 13, 2003, Tom Donohue received the news that changed everything. About a week after a routine physical, his doctor called him and said he wanted to discuss his test results. "I knew what he was going to tell me. I curled up and cried hysterically," he recalled Monday afternoon to an audience of about 50 Penn State Mont Alto students and staff members. He and his partner drove to the doctor's office - "the longest drive of my life" - where Donohue was told that he was HIV-positive.

Although a steady rain shower over the Eastern Panhandle early Sunday afternoon kept turnout low, it couldn’t dampen spirits. Only about a dozen people braved the poor conditions to attend a vigil at War Memorial Park to recognize the 28th International AIDS candlelight memorial, which is celebrated by tens of thousands of people across the world each year. Sponsored for the first time by the Shenandoah Community Health Center and Community Networks Inc. after the AIDS Network folded in September 2010, the memorial is used to remember those who have lost their lives to AIDS, to support those living with HIV and affected by its impact, and to spur calls to action for greater awareness.

A Washington County Circuit Court jury took about 10 minutes Monday to convict a Hagerstown man of spitting on a Hagerstown police officer, unaware that the man was HIV-positive. That fact was revealed in court when Judge Daniel P. Dwyer sentenced Jeffrey Lynn Black, 44, of 914 Kuhn Ave., to five years in state prison for second-degree assault. "It's on my mind ... every three months I have to go back and get tested," said Officer Richard Cook, who told Dwyer he will have to be tested periodically for at least a year.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Scientists believe they have found a "missing link" in the evolution of the virus that causes AIDS. It bridges the gap between the infection that does no harm to most monkeys and the one that kills millions of people. That link is a virus that is killing chimpanzees in the wild at a disturbingly high rate, according to a study in Thursday's journal Nature. Chimpanzees are the first primate besides man shown to get sick in the wild in significant numbers from a virus related to HIV. Chimps are also man's closest relative among primates.

In 1996, Jenny Taylor-Gray thought taking a job as an HIV and AIDS counselor was an unwise career move. By the mid-1990s, it was well-known how human immunodeficiency virus, the virus that leads to AIDS, is spread. And since HIV infection is easily prevented by taking certain precautions, Taylor-Gray figured it wouldn't be too long before HIV was eliminated and she'd be out of a job. Today, as the Washington County program supervisor for HIV services, Taylor-Gray's job security is guaranteed.
