Toast the Mill Street Bistro & Bar, which is slated to open Tuesday in Norwalk. Owner Joe Nagy has invested a lot of time, money and effort into the restaurant, the former homes of the Press Box and Friendly Corners at 21 Mill St. It is an upscale restaurant with upscale prices something people in this town have been asking for. No more driving to Sandusky, Huron or even Cleveland for an upscale meal. We hope it works, and with the price of gas, it may just be one of the best deals in town.
Toast Cynthia Kniffin and all of her dancers who performed over the weekend at the Ernsthausen Performing Arts Center. "The Enchanted Forest and "Themes from Camelot" thrilled the packed houses for three straight nights. The every-other-year extravaganza takes months and months to prepare for and all of the performers deserve a standing ovation.
Toast longtime Norwalk Reflector sportswriter Don Hohler, who is cutting back his sportswriting duties after more than 50 years on the local high school beat. Hohler will continue his golf and feature writing, but will no longer cover games. Here's a final game story -30- for a job well done.
Toast the city of Norwalk, Buckeye Excavating and everybody involved in the work on Cline Street. The first phase of the work is completed and it looks great. We know it was tough on the businesses around the work area, but is should pay off in the long run. There is no easy or cheap way to get around roadwork. The infrastructure of any city, town or county must be maintained and updated to keep up with future development.
