The top stories in the Norwalk Reflector on this date 34 years ago:


Mrs. Larry Felver and her two-year-old daughter Shannon, were pictured on the front page relaxing at their DeRussey Road home. The evening before, Shannon shifted her mother's car into "drive" when Mrs. Felver left the car running at the Benedict Avenue branch of the Citizen's National Bank. The car crossed Benedict Avenue, jumped a curb, passed between two trees on the lawn of Fisher-Titus Memorial Hospital, then hit two parked cars. Shannon came out of her short drive unscathed.
