NEW LONDON - New London is a very small town, but it can boast of three healthcare professionals, each of whom has served the community for many years. Chiropractor Mike Collins has worked in the village for 33 years, he has raised his family there and both his wife and daughter are involved in his practice. He likes the obvious advantages of a small town, such as no traffic jams, knowing almost everyone and being able to treat "friends and neighbors."

It's been a bad winter so far, worse than most, and still a long time before spring. If the cold, snow, bitter winds, and ice are starting to get you down, there's really only one choice - head south, and for most of us, that means Florida. But it's a big state, and the question is: where should you go? I've covered this long state from top to bottom, fishing for bass in swamps and blackfin tuna off Key West, and since I love saltwater fishing the place that draws me back is territory along the west coast from Sarasota south. There's good fishing and lots to do, both for you and the family.

Experience counts. That's why I will be voting for Larry Silcox for Huron County Commissioner on March 4 and I urge all eligible voters to do the same. Larry has a background which makes him uniquely qualified for this position. As a former commissioner, he is ready to hit the bricks running. He knows county government, he knows government budgeting, he knows the art of teamwork. As former chief deputy sheriff, Larry knows Huron County. He knows every corner of the county and the people who live here. As a small-business owner, he is aware of the current economic situation. As a parent of two school-aged children, he is concerned about the quality of education, negative influences and the future. In the years that I have known Larry, I have found him to be honest and honorable, personable, intelligent, and always ready to listen. The greatest compliment I can pay, however, would be to quote my late father-in-law, Kenny Earl, who himself was a deputy sheriff for many years. He often said, "I've known Larry all his life and he's always been straight." Anyone who knew Kenny would know that he could find some good in everyone, but he only used the word "always" when it was justified! Ruth Niver Earl North Fairfield

Toast the many people who pulled off another special evening that raised between &#036;25,000 and &#036;30,000 for the Endowment Fund for Norwalk City Schools. Many volunteers, the NHS Key Club, Fisher-Titus Medical Center, the Firelands Area Art League and the Hen House worked together for an evening featuring fine music, great food and a wonderful showcase for the schools. Roast the presidential candidates both Democrat and Republican for bypassing Norwalk and Huron County as they criss-cross the state in their attempts at a primary win. In a presidential election where, finally, the "late" Ohio primary means something in the nomination process, they are ignoring a very pivotal area that may well be important to their chances. But who knows, their schedules can be subject to change at a time like this, so we could see one of them before it's all over next Tuesday. Toast the 11 area wrestlers who will compete at this week's state tournament in Columbus, led by Monroeville's Fab Four Logan and Hunter Stieber, Cam Tessari and Chris Phillips. Also competing will be Chris Doughty from St. Paul, Tim Majoy and Craig Ritz from Edison, J.J. Boyce from Western Reserve, Bret Essenmacher of New London and South Central's Payton Oney and Nick Hamilton. Good luck and congratulations on a great season. Bring back the gold. Toast the Norwalk Police Department for cracking down on traffic violations. The police issued 1,818 traffic citations in 2007, half of which were for speeding. While it may be tough love, the aggressive effort has contributed to a decline in traffic accidents despite an increase in the level of traffic.

Driving down Highway 52 last Monday morning at high speed so as not to be late for an MRI of my cranium, I passed a semi as it was barreling through a snowdrift and suddenly I was in a cloud of whiteness, much like the Rapture will be, but with zero visibility. I was talking on a cell phone at the time to someone walking through Central Park, which seemed, she said, on the verge of spring. I was also trying to fast-forward a CD to a cut of "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?" And then the whiteness swallowed me up. As so often happens, I was OK by virtue of doing nothing. I blew through the cloud and out the other side and the person in New York said she wished I were there, walking around the Great Lawn and over to the Met to see the Manets and Monets, and then I hit another patch of snow. It does get to you, winter. Some people quit shoveling and nest in their beds like rodents and live on water chestnuts and fruitcake and call up AM talk radio and light into the president. If it weren't for the fact that alligators can run as fast as 42 mph in short bursts and that deadly snakes can squeeze through a hole the size of a No. 2 pencil, these individuals would fly to Florida. Myself, I would not mind a few weeks on the semitropical archipelago of Hawaii, which if compressed would just barely squeeze into North Dakota, which, if it were to happen, would upset a lot of golfers.
