Swine flu scare postpones events, trips

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The fear of a swine flu outbreak continues to take its tolls on planned events in Alabama.

A party that first lady Patsy Riley was planning to host Sunday for foster children has been postponed because four probable cases of swine flu have been diagnosed in Alabama.

Organizers said the event called the "Big Birthday Party'"' will be rescheduled. Fear of the flu also prompted school officials in Madison County to order buses full of members of two high school bands headed to Florida to return.

The students from Hazel Green and Buckhorn high schools were headed to a band competition at Sea World near Orlando.
