Back in my early days of Ohio deer hunting it was considered terribly unsportsmanlike to kill a doe. Bucks were the target almost every time and even when it was legal to take one of the female gender those who did were looked down on as little more than poachers. "Save the females to reproduce more deer" was the motto, but that's definitely changed now with deer populations at an all-time high, and the Division of Wildlife taking near desperate measures to reduce the herd. There was an estimated population of 675,000 animals before last year's seasons began, up 25,000 despite a record kill in 2006 of 237,316. And next year there will likely be more. Even ordinary citizens are becoming unhappy with the growing population. My sister lives in a Cincinnati suburb well inside the urban zone there, and in a recent phone call said "They're everywhere down here. Last night just before dark over a dozen came walking across our backyard, and there were three this morning at the end of our driveway. We can't plant flower beds or shrubs because they eat them. I wish somebody would do something." The Division of Wildlife is trying to do something, but it's a juggling act. According to Dave Risley, executive administrator for wildlife research, the problem is not a magic statewide number for the population, but setting proper habitat-based deer densities by region or state. "It depends on what the landscape will support." he said. He noted widespread complaints of deer that have become so abundant that they're regarded as little more than rats with hooves by many home and landowners.

In partnership with the Norwalk Economic Development Corporation (NEDC), the city of Norwalk plans to once again honor those businesses in Norwalk which have been in continuous operation for 100 years or more by inducting them into Norwalk's Century Club.

The event will cap off NEDC's fifth annual Business Appreciation Week, scheduled for April 21 to 25. Conceived by Mayor Sue Lesch in 2004, the Century Club currently includes 23 businesses and organizations. "For 2008, we have identified five additional businesses and organizations that fit the criteria," Lesch said.

This is to the coward who was riding a snowmobile on private property last Wednesday night on North Old State Road when you hit my dog (who was on our own property). Besides the fact that you weren't man enough to stop and let me know you hit her, she was injured badly enough I had to have her back leg amputated this morning. We are here visiting from Georgia due to my father's illness, and it's a shame my dog was not safe on my father's property because of losers like you. Just so you know, it cost me $1,000 to pay for the surgery, not to mention her pain and suffering. I hope your joyride was worth it.

This may seem to be a simple question at first, but if you have never made a real-life 9-1-1 emergency call, it may be more difficult question than you think. Everyone knows what number to dial when an emergency strikes, but have you ever thought about these questions? What kind of emergency do I call for? What do I say? Who am I going to be speaking to and where are they located?

mlboose@norwalkreflector.com Flooding was the topic at city council's work session Tuesday night as a company presented two alternatives to solve problems on the south side of the city. Arcadis, the company that has worked with the city in the past, gave two ideas - adding a new storm sewer outlet to carry the runoff from undeveloped property to the trunk sewer to the north on Executive Drive or adding a new storm sewer and an additional pipe segment from a new catch basin to the Manchester Meadows detention basin. The company has not figured costs for either alternative. About a dozen residents attended the meeting to let council know of their continuing problems with flooding.
