Corbin, whose heroic deeds in Iraq have garnered national attention, is going back for three more weeks of military training on June 9. The problem is, by Ohio law, the sheriff's office can only pay him for 176 hours of military training, which the Huron County Sheriff's deputy already has reached.

CLEVELAND The mother of a 24-year-old Norwalk man who died in August 2004, shortly after receiving his second injection of the drug Magnevist, has filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court here against Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals of Wayne, N.J., an arm of Bayer AG of Berlin, Germany. She is claiming that the drug a contrast agent containing the heavy metal gadolinium caused her son's death. Beverly Rockwell, who is seeking compensatory and punitive damages on behalf of the estate of her son, Trevor A. Drake, maintains he was injected at the Cleveland Clinic with Magnevist prior to his magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for end-stage kidney disease. The purpose of the drug is to help diagnosticians to visualize internal organs and blood vessels. Filed by the Cleveland litigation law firm of Spangenberg, Shibley & Liber, the suit claims that Magnevist caused a skin and joint disease known as nephrogenic systemic fibrosis or nephrogenic fibrosing dermopathy (NSF/NFD), which was fatal to Drake, an apprentice carpenter. Berlex Laboratories Inc. in Montville, N.J., the U.S. arm of Schering AG, also headquartered in Berlin, originally manufactured Magnevist. Bayer bought Schering in 2006 and continues to manufacture Magnevist.

We are fifth graders at Western Reserve Elementary school and we are very upset that Mrs. Link, our school librarian, is being laid off. Mrs. Link always encourages us to do our best in reading. She helps us find good books to read. She also taught us how to use CAT junior to find good books to read and then to take AR tests on. When kids reach a certain amount of AR points for reading books, she gives us prizes. When we reach 100 points, she gives us a certificate and a trophy.
