They say people don't read books anymore, but that's not true. How do I know? Well, for one thing, look at the growth of gigantic book stores like Barnes & Noble. We even have one at the Sandusky Mall, which is much, much bigger than the older Waldenbooks store. Business people don't build brand new stores unless they think they're going to make a profit. Thus, my conclusion: people ARE reading books - or at least they are buying them.

Twenty two individuals have lost a total of 222 pound and raised $250 for Relay for Life. Since the beginning of the year, the people have been meeting once a week in Willard. Additionally, organizers Fitness Trainer Janet Cok and Wellness Coach Anne Nossaman started a challenge at Sheri's Coffee House in Norwalk to promote healthy lifestyle changes and raise funds for American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. This group of 11 lost 90 pounds in eight weeks and raised $127 for Relay for Life. The program was inspired by the "Biggest Loser" Television Show and results were based on total percentage of body weight loss which levels the playing field for different body types and sizes. The two groups met separately and had their own prize pots into which each participant initially placed $30 so larger the group the larger the payouts. On a rare occasion if someone missed a weekly weigh-in or gained a pound during the week they contributed another dollar bill to the prize pot. The Norwalk and Willard groups were not competing against each other but comparing the weekly results was rather fun and motivational for both groups. This was Willard's second challenge and their group was twice as size which definitely contributed to their impressive results.

"It is an ongoing thing," he said, because of annexations and new homes built. "We knew Norwalk was a problem and it has been fixed."
