BOSTON (AP) — As it seeks investors, the Cape Wind offshore wind farm faces fast-approaching benchmarks that it must meet or risk missing out on hundreds of millions of dollars in critical funding for the oft-delayed project.
To qualify for a tax credit that would cover a major portion of its capital costs, the wind farm off the Massachusetts coast must begin construction by Dec. 31 or prove it's incurred tens of millions of dollars in costs by then.
Also, a $200 million investment from a Danish pension fund is conditioned on whether developers can finance the rest of the $2.6 billion project by year's end.
Cape Wind isn't discussing progress on construction, the tax credit or financing. But spokesman Mark Rodgers said the project remains on track and will be built.
ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) — A former Lindenwood University student faces additional charges accusing him of exposing four more people to the HIV virus that causes AIDS without the victims' knowledge.
St. Charles County prosecutors charged 22-year-old Michael L. Johnson in October with potentially exposing a 19-year-old Lindenwood student to the virus. Police said Johnson and the victim had unprotected sex in the wrestler's Lindenwood dorm after Johnson was diagnosed as HIV-positive.
Police asked anyone else who had an intimate relationship with Johnson to contact investigators.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports prosecutors last week added four felony charges to the initial charge. The St. Charles County prosecutor's office says the additional counts of recklessly risking infection of another with HIV were developed in the investigation.
Johnson's lawyer didn't immediately return a call for comment.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Hundreds of pending child welfare investigations are at risk of being thrown out because they weren't completed fast enough.
The Kansas City Star reports that Missouri law requires child welfare workers to complete abuse and neglect investigations within 30 days after the initial hotline call unless there's "good cause" for a delay. The law also requires that those accused be notified of the conclusion within 90 days of the hotline call.
Two accused women, one from West Plains and another from the Kansas City area, sued to clear their names. Lower courts sided with the women, finding the 90-day deadline wasn't met. Now, the Missouri Supreme Court is preparing to hear arguments in the cases.
Child welfare advocates say the litigation has created uncertainty.
