Much discussion recently has focused on a new vaccine that helps protect girls and young women against cervical cancer. The vaccine wards off the virus the human papillomavirus, or HPV that causes the disease. This medical breakthrough, however, does not protect against all cancer-causing HPV types and is only FDA-approved for girls and women aged 9 to 26. Therefore, it certainly won't help women aged 65 and older, who account for nearly 20 percent of all new cervical cancer cases in the United States and more than 35 percent of all deaths from the disease. Another technology a DNA test for HPV can better protect these women. And now, a proposal before Congress will ensure that older women get access to this test by requiring Medicare to pay for it.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) The race to replace U.S. Rep. Paul Gillmor comes down to two political names familiar to voters in a heavily Republican northwest Ohio congressional district. Republican State Rep. Bob Latta wants to be the second Latta to represent the 5th Congressional District. His father, Delbert, held the seat from 1959-1989 and helped cement Republican dominance in the district since the 1930s. Democrat Robin Weirauch's name has appeared on the ballot before in the district and may be the best hope for her nationally buoyant but locally marginalized party. In the 2006 general election against Gillmor, she received more votes 43 percent than any other Democrat in the district's history. On Tuesday, she cruised to a 72 percent to 28 percent victory over challenger George Mays in the Democratic primary.

There was silence in the sanctuary as actor Brad Sherrill offered a rock for someone without sin to "throw" at the accused adulteress. The Atlanta actor's eyes locked with several people's as he walked down the middle of the aisle during his one-man performance of "The Gospel of John." Berlin Heights resident Tracy McGinley was hesitant at first to bring her two children, Hannah, 8, and Connor, 9, to Sunday's performance at First Presbyterian Church, Norwalk. She wasn't sure how the story of Jesus Christ's crucifixion would be portrayed or if Sherrill's drama would hold her children's attention.
