Easter bonnet sales depressed

If you show up in church Sunday with a new Easter bonnet, you're among a minority of women still clinging to tradition.

At least that's what Norwalk businessmen say who still have spring hats for sale.

Wigs, falls and fancy hairdos have all but killed the market for spring bonnets, and one businessman said he really can't blame milady.

"If she spends $15 on a hairdo, I can't blame her for not wanting to cover it up," said C. Eugene Jones of Spector's Junior Department Store.

A photo accompanying the story showed 9-year-old Cathy Stein, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Stein, wearing a new Easter bonnet.

Who's the yegg who stole eggs?

Could the Easter bunny have run short?

He wasn't beyond suspicion today as the Huron County Sheriff's Department investigated the theft of 35 dozen eggs from a rural Wakeman egg house.

C.A. Todd, Route 303, reported to the sheriff's department Friday that someone had broken into his egg house and taken the eggs.

Six Eagles back from last year

Six lettermen are the nucleus of what Monroeville coach Jerry Everhart hopes will bring the school its fifth straight Firelands Conference championship

Heading the list of veterans is pitcher-infielder Dick Miller, a mainstay on the mound last year.

Assistance on the hill will come form another senior, Jeff Eby. Two outfielders, Steve Moore and Rich Herner, and two other infielders, Tom Krick and Bill Laux, round out the veterans list.

Capital gets Jim Lawrence

Jim Lawrence, two-year letterman for the Norwalk High School football team, announced plans to attend Capital University in Columbus on a combined athletic and academic scholarship.

Lawrence was a defensive linebacker and offensive halfback on the 1969 Trucker football squad which finished the season with four wins and six losses.
