County officials leave CD program future up in air

A two-hour exchange of views among 28 county officials on the future of Huron County’s Civil Defense program ended last night with all decisions boomeranging back to the office of the Huron County Commissioners.

Should Civil Defense continue as a county-wide program, should a paid or unpaid full or part-time director be appointed, what method is best for financing a program, are some of the questions still facing the commissioners.

They called last night’s meeting to sample county opinion on the program “that is losing interest,” and perhaps find sufficient sentiment for guiding the program in a specified direction.

Many of the townships, all villages except Monroeville, and all three cities were represented. Mayors of Norwalk, Bellevue, Willard, North Fairfield, Greenwich and New London were present as well as Paul Schlosser, Norwalk’s CD director. Herbert Napka, Huron County CD director, did not attend the meeting because of prior commitments.

Be my Valentine

Pictured on the front page of the paper exchanging Valentine’s Day cards were Stanley Rion and Diana Ziemke, at the Valentine party in Maplehurst kindergarten room 106. “Stan looks like he might also be interested in a little friendly kiss, but Dianna is not too sure about that Valentine idea.”

Scouting news

Hawaiian decorations and music set the scene Tuesday evening when 34 members of Norwalk Senior Girl Scout Troop 99 met at the home of Pam Martin on Southwood Drive for a luau.

The supper menu, decorations, music and program were planned by patrol leaders Pat Moehlman, Carolyn Kluding, Diane Lee and Susan Dobbs.

Mrs. Lawrence Hilson and Mrs. J.J. McBride, advisors, and Mrs. Claude Martin also attended.

City League results

Both Lam’s Tavern and Dauch Trucking scored easy wins last night in the Men’s City Basketball League. The Tavern team romped by the Milan Merchants 67-56, while the Trucking squad dropped Barman & Seitz, 78-58.

Bill Burke scored 18, Dave Stouffer, 16 and Gary Byron 14 in the Truckers’ win. High for the losers was Jim Wasiniak and Ralph Shoemaker with 17. Bob Brown netted 11.

In the High School League play, Schild’s IGA dumped the “Y” Station 53-48, while Meyer Chevy rolled to a 64-29 win over Wilkinson’s Paint and Wallpaper.

Ken Nickoli and Eric Albright were the big guns for the grocers with 19 and 16 points respectively, while Keith Rakosky scored nearly half of his team’s points when he ended with 22.

Butch Winchester scored 18 and Mike Dials 13 for the Chevy team. Tom Derby was high for the losers with nine.
