In the middle of the night a little more than a year ago, Michael P. Durham woke up in his Moreland home, popped a couple of night-time pain relievers and tried to go back to sleep. A short time later, however, Durham “began experiencing abdominal pain, brownouts, blackouts and a general sense of lightheadedness.” Then he developed an ulcer that “produced pain and caused an enormous amount of blood loss”¿that eventually required transfusions to keep him alive. It wasn't the Equate brand Rapid Release PM¿Pills that made Durham sick; it was the cannister inserted in the bottle meant to keep the pills dry that Durham inadvertently swallowed along with the tablets in his mid-night state of mind.

On Monday, Stanford City Commission will hold a called meeting to have a second reading of an ordinance to annex about 70 acres that includes Wal-Mart and surrounding businesses.
