Trump demonstrates his maturity with 'Rocket Man' tweet
The fear remains that Kim Jong Un may soon develop the ability to target the U.S. with a powerful, nuclear-tipped missile. The President, from his personal account on Sunday, tweeted, "I spoke with President Moon of South Korea last night".

IDPH Director Nirav D. Shah said in a statement that although cooler weather is beginning, West Nile virus is still a concern.

Mosquitoes transmit the virus after feeding on an infected bird.

Health experts recommend to protect yourself from the virus by using insect repellant and wearing long-sleeved shirts and trousers, particularly during the hours between dusk and dawn. Four out of every five people who get West Nile never show symptoms. Common symptoms include fever, nausea, headache and muscle aches. Older adults and people with compromised immune systems are at an increased risk of severe disease from the virus, according to the report.

Crews will be spraying for mosquitoes Tuesday night after a second person in Rock Hill was diagnosed with West Nile virus. Consult a physician before using repellents on infants.
