EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is an excerpt of Joe Centers' column, which was published in Tuesday's Reflector.
The late, great former Norwalk mayor Louis Frey was a very colorful man who liked to say what was on his mind.
He really didn’t care too much what people said about him or what was written about him. He used to like to say something like this: “I don’t care what you write, but make sure you put it on the front page and spell my name right.”
A lot of people think front-page news is all that matters when you are in the promotion business. And Louis Frey liked to promote what he called the “finest damn little city in Ohio.”
Norwalk is on the big stage right now as the Mill Street Bistro is being featured in a two-part series on Fox’s “Kitchen Nightmares.”
If last Friday’s first part is any indication, this could be another long week for owner Joe Nagy and the restaurant. The second part airs at 8 p.m. Friday on Fox.
