Cause of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) found?
Brainerd MN 506 James St. / PO Box 974 56401

Finally, a possible explanation for SIDS. Babies that die suddenly and unexpectedly have been found to have underlying brain stem abnormalities that are not normal, before death. The brain stem affects the breathing, the heart rate, blood pressure and temperature during sleep. These abnormalities prevent sleeping babies from waking up when they re-breath to much carbon dioxide because they're not getting enough oxygen or become overheated.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
