Norwalk business flies Ohio flag daily

"Quite simply, I am an American citizen and proud of it," said Jim Zuber.

Inside his restaurant, Zuber has a collection of etchings of every president. Each etching is an actual reproduction of the official presidential engraving. Washington's, for example, is identical to the one on the dollar bill.

"The etchings generate considerable curiosity and have been well received," Zuber said. "It took me several years to find the complete set of identical pictures. I found the collection in a Cleveland department store and frames cost more than the pictures."

"I've always been interested in the presidents and display their pictures as well as the flags simply to reflect the pride I have in this country," Zuber said.

Local man appointed

Edward McManus, 60 1/2 N. Foster St., has been appointed district deputy state president of district nine of the Fraternal Order of Eagles.
