Mayor considering ban on sprinkling
Dry weather is taking its toll on Norwalk’s water supply, but there is no immediate danger of running short of water.
Mayor Wayne Goodsite said today he is keeping “close tabs” on the level of Memorial Lake Park, the main reservoir in the city’s water supply system. The lake is down nine inches from last week and is 57 inches below its capacity.
Carol Newton, story lady at the Norwalk Public Library, was pictured on the front page telling a story to twins David and Andrea Leake. The two-year-olds accompanied their 11-year-old brother John to the library to sign up for the summer reading program. John was expected to have no trouble reading the required 13 books over the summer — he read 70 during the school year. The three youngsters are the children of Anne Leake, 153 E. Main Street.
50th anniversary celebration set
Mr. and Mrs. George Schaechterle, rural Norwalk, will celebrate their 50th anniversary with an open house from 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 19th, at First United Methodist Church.
Their daughter and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. Lee (Regina) Yurkowtz of Appleton, Wis., will celebrate their 25th anniversary at the same time.
The Schaecterles have three grandchildren, Susan, Karen and Richard.
Hackers shine in Bino Golf Tourney
The fifth annual Bino Invitational is history. Many say “Thank goodness.” Others, like winner Ed Snyder, who enjoyed every one of his 140 strokes, enjoyed it thoroughly.
Played for the first time at Sycamore Hills with a team format, there were more than the usual number of surprises. Probably the biggest shocker was that participants are improving. The “dubber” that took home the trophy, in this case Snyder, used some thirty fewer strokes than Doug Barman did last year.
The honor of having the lowest score was a dog-eat-dog battle. Don Bieile was the eventual winner with an 87, while newcomer Dan Obringer and Don Hohler each recorded 88s.
Schoenegge zooms to second
Jim Schoenegge of Norwalk took the top honors in Sunday’s Bike Eliminator for the second week in a row Sunday at Norwalk Raceway. The talented ace driving a Yamaha defeated James Griffin of Huron driving a Kawasaki.
