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."

Historical status in the sport of racing is upon us. Revenue for our "big city" is at the checkered flag. Seize it! Ninety-nine percent of us will steer straight in the park and the others will be impounded by our no nonsense Norwalk police. In response to some concerns: Kids know right from wrong. Also, we have the greatest pro business major alive. Let's put Norwalk on the map.

A September 2006 court ruling could cost Stan Obrenovich his place on the November ballot, derailing his quest to return to council as an independent candidate. But the ruling has far wider implications than one man's campaign. The court case, Morrison v. Colley, was heard by the 6th district U.S. Court of Appeals. According to an Ohio Secretary of State's directive, the ruling changes Ohio law and now requires independent candidates to be entirely unaffiliated with a political party, a claim they must make in so-called "good faith."
