Longtime KGLO Farm Director Al Heinz dies
Breaking News MASON CITY --- A voice heard on radios throughout north-central Iowa for over six decades has been silenced. Word came earlier this morning that longtime KGLO Farm Director Al Heinz has passed away at his winter home in Texas. Heinz came to Mason City and started at KGLO radio back in 1943 and stayed through 1998. Heinz was also the second voice ever heard on what was then known as KGLO television, now KIMT, when the station signed on back in 1954. Heinz says he didn’t even think about being on television when starting his broadcasting career. Chris Frenz worked with Heinz for a number of years and told us earlier today that Heinz was the ultimate professional in his job. Funeral arrangements are incomplete at this time for Al Heinz, and of course we’ll give you the details of those as soon as they become available here on KGLO.

Mercy officials say man involved in chemical incident at West Campus dead
Breaking News 2:27 PM, January 15th, 2010
by Bob Fisher, News Director

MASON CITY --- One person is dead after a chemical spill last night on the West Campus of Mercy Medical Center-North Iowa in Mason City. A news release from Mercy says that a sodium hydroxide spill happened in the hospital’s “Textile Service Department”. During the situation, one of Mercy’s associates had a medical emergency. The Mason City Fire Department and Ambulance Service was call and unable to revive David Weaver, who has worked with Mercy for 15 years. Four firefighters and four other Mercy associates involved in the incident were also evaluated and later released. Mason City Fire Chief Bob Platts says they assisted hospital officials in containing the leak to the Textile Services area.  He says once the fire department arrived, they realized that chemicals had been released in an area where they are used…that area was cordoned off until a private company came in to clean up the product. Platts says the chemical spill was well contained and has already been cleaned up. He says it was mostly contained to one room, and none of it got out into the environment.  Hospital officials say the investigation into the incident continues.
