Roasts & Toasts

Toast Norwalk Mayor Sue Lesch and other city leaders for their efforts in starting a new drug education program in the schools. They have made drug testing kits (donated by local businesses) freely available to parents and they are holding educational sessions tonight and Thursday for anybody interested. The sessions only last an hour and everybody is invited. The sessions are at 7 tonight at the St. Paul Convocation Center and 7 p.m. Thursday at the Norwalk High School, Fisher-Titus Learning Center. Roast the gas station owners in Norwalk who have been sitting on the $2.99 gravy train the last couple of weeks. It appears the gas wars in town are over and everybody is happy charging the same price. Gas has been 25 cents cheaper in New London and Saturday in Bellevue it was selling for $2.76. A quarter a gallon adds up in a hurry. It comes down to supply and demand and right now the demand side is winning.

Toast Christie Lane Schools and Workshop, which celebrated Sunday its 40th anniversary 50th anniversary for the school, but 40th for the state MRDD (Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities) program. "This highlights where we've been and where we are going," Superintendent Dee Zeffiro-Krenisky said Sunday. "It's been wonderful. From the people coming and going we've seen about 150 people today." The people at Christie Lane do a great job for the mentally challenged residents of Huron County.

Toast the Town and Country Garden Club for Sunday's dedication of the Blue Star Memorial at the Veteran's Memorial Park in Norwalk. "We had a great turnout and the speakers were wonderful," club member Dee Battista said. "Some of the speakers have been in the service and they are so supportive of our efforts ... the whole program was so nice." There are now 18 Blue Star Memorials in Ohio.

gas in this town has been higher for years now. i travel to ashland every weekend and can tell you they are always cheaper than norwalk...anywhere between 10 - 25 cents per/gallon. my advice to everyone is never buy gas in this town unless you have to. maybe if enough people quit paying their ridiculous prices they will be forced to be fair like other towns!

Reads like there is a conspiracy afoot in the Norwalk petrol markets to negate the laws of supply and demand. Sweet God, perhaps it's time to call in the Ohio AG and break up this unseemly cabal. Has anyone from the paper spoken with gas station owners and attempted to get their views regarding the price disparities when compared to the surrounding communities or is it easier to fan populist flames?

Re: Roast the gas station owners in Norwalk. Kindly be aware that gasoline is a commodity and that for the retail store the profit margin is very small. Stations make the majority of their profit on impulse item purchases - mostly cigarettes and pop.
