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

County mulls voter sign-up

A decision on whether voter registration will be established on a county wide basis will be made before the end of June.

This was the word from County Board of Elections Chairman John Hogsett this morning after board of election members and the county commissioners met behind closed doors for 55 minutes.

Hogsett said problems the board has announced in moving voting machines from one location to another also were considered.

New London and Bellevue have asked for the establishment of voter registration and under the law the board of elections must set it up for those to communities.

Paffenbarger quits Airport Authority

The Huron County Commissioners have been side-stepping a decision on a letter of resignation from Huron County Airport Authority President T.L. Paffenbarger for more than a month.

The letter, dated May 2, is tucked deep in a folder of pending business in the commissioners' office.

Paffenbarger submitted the letter after he and County Prosecutor Bernard Freeman reportedly got into a heated exchange in the commissioners' office over questions of whether legal work Paffenbarger has done for principals in Erie Air Service might represent a conflict of interest.
