"It was tough going but I focused my energies and persevered. All that effort tuckered me out for Fathers' Day, but I still managed to see most of the Indians' victory between cat naps," reported McBeane as he flexed his shoulders. "I had some new muscles yesterday, I'll tell you. It's a good thing that home workout doesn't happen too often," he concluded with a big sigh. "It is getting a bit late for turning over your garden," responded Doberman. "My clay-laden dirt is getting pretty solid in this heat. What on earth did you do?"

This summer, I've made a resolution. I'm going to get rid of a lot of "stuff." What, exactly, is "stuff?" Well, a house can be divided into two categories: stuff and space. Space is the area that people walk around in. Stuff is the rest of it everything from furniture to books to papers to piles of miscellaneous items. Space is what allows a person to move comfortably around. Stuff is what takes up precious space.

In writing about Dr. William Merritt last week, I find that more information about him might be in order. The family was a vital part of the Norwalk scene for several decades and the Merritt House is an integral part of the West Main Street Historic District. Merritt was born in North Fairfield and came to Norwalk about 1890 to practice dentistry. He was married to Mary Ford in 1896. She was a daughter of Dr. James Ford, a physician whose home and office stood at 10 and 12 Benedict Ave., opposite the courthouse. They lived at 203 W. Main St. for 10 years until building a new house at 123 W. Main St. in 1906.

Pat Norris said the Norris Auto Mall in Medina, a dealership in Norwalk and two dealerships in Burbank, Ohio, are all for sale. Though no official number of layoffs has been released, it is estimated 25 to 30 people worked for the Norwalk dealership, which sold Chevrolet, Chrysler, Pontiac, Cadillac, Dodge, GMC, Jeep, Hyundai and Buick vehicles.

Let's see.Two weeks ago it was cicadas, last week it was bees. What infestation could I possibly write about this week? (Believe me, I've got plenty.) I think I'm going to call this my "Guess what's living under my porch" column. There is something under the porch. Every time I take a step I can hear the thing scamper from one side to the other. Maybe it's related to whatever is living in the ceiling above the living room. Sometimes in the evening, I can hear something scurrying around up there, too.

How many household cleaning products are sitting under your sink? Americans plunk down billions of dollars each year on germ warfare to keep their homes more sanitized and better smelling. Seeing that we all probably have at least a couple of cleaning products, the question is, are they all necessary? The even bigger question is: are they safe? Many say no. According to the EPA, many everyday household cleaners present a real health risk, and it's no wonder given their ingredients. Formaldehyde, petroleum and sodium hypochlorite (bleach) are just a few toxins proven to contribute to memory loss, asthma attacks and dizziness, to name just a few.

MILAN - On the average day in the United States over 11,120 babies are born. That means that there are more than 3 million women in the United States that are pregnant on any given day. Although giving birth to a new baby is a momentous and extraordinary event, it is often times painful to go through, and some times quite difficult to recover from. For the 30 percent of women who give birth in the United States via C-section, including Kelly Bleile Dete of Sandusky who gave birth to her first child two months ago, recovering from childbirth can be even more challenging. Dete recalls, "When I was pregnant with Joslyn Elizabeth and was told that a C-section procedure would be the best way for me to deliver, I had many questions for my doctor. I was told that the surgical incision would be sore and most women report that walking the first few times after birth is very painful. Most women I knew needed narcotics to cope with the pain, but I was concerned about how that would affect the baby and me. When Dr. Dorman told me about a new non-narcotic therapy that was being used in lieu of narcotics and would keep me pain free, I did some online research and decided because of the positive patient experiences I read about, I decided to give it a try."
