The top stories in the Norwalk Reflector on this date 39 years ago:

Commission OKs Schild expansion

The Planning and Zoning Commission recommended a change in a building ordinance and approved plans Friday night for an addition to a supermarket.

The commission also indicated it would reject an application for a mobile home park on St. Mary's Street unless the plans are changed.

Schild's IGA store won permission to construct a 48 by 20 foot addition to the northwest side of the store on Milan Avenue.

The addition will come closer to the store's property line than 20 feet, which violates the ordinance covering B-3 (commercial zones) in Norwalk.

However, service director Morley Price pointed out that B-1 and B-2 zones, which are normally more restrictive than B-3, allow commercial buildings to be constructed to the property line.

Local GS leaders honored

Six Norwalk women attended the fifth annual meeting of the Erie Shores Girl Scout Council April 22 at Midview High School, Grafton.

Delegates attending from the Norwalk neighborhood were Mrs. John Meacher, Mrs. Robert Vogt, Mrs. Henry Wilson, Mrs. Edward Reichert and Mrs. Howard Hersey. Mrs. R.W. Dobbs served as alternate.

Mrs. Alan Johnson of Norwalk will continue to serve on the nominating committee.

Jr. Highers win

The Norwalk Junior High track team defeated Margaretta 110 to 79 in a meet at Margaretta Wednesday.

Six seventh-graders and three eighth graders took first place.

For the seventh grade, the winners were Kirk Mason (50 yard dash), Robert Legg (75 yard dash), Mike Shullick (high jump), Dave Calhoun (pole vault), and Dave Kerkhoff (discus). The team of Joe Turnley, Doug White and Kan Kerkoff and Kirk Mason combined to win the 440 yard relay.

In the eighth grade division the winners were Mike Wilde (120 yard low hurdles, broad jump and discus), Mike Simons (440 yard dash), and Phil Daniels (220 yard dash).

Miller pitches no-hitter

MONROEVILLE Steve Miller, a junior right handed pitcher, hurled a no-hitter as Monroeville over powered York 14-3 Friday at Monroeville.

Steve's brother Tom teamed with Ron Schneider a week and a half ago to pitch a no-hitter against this same York team.
