Many fourth graders in Huron County got a valuable treat last week - hands-on lessons on conservation, forestry, wildlife and agriculture. Huron County Soil and Water Conservation puts on an annual day for fourth graders every year and this year more than 330 students visited 12 stations to learn about where their food comes from and how to maintain the planet. Teachers from Maplehurst Elementary, Norwalk Catholic School, Monroeville, St. Joseph Elementary, Western Reserve and Trinity took advantage of the opportunity to bring students to the event.

Incorrect information was reported in a recent story about firefighter training May 3 at the Huron County Fairgrounds. The story said a van used in the training was donated by the Monroeville School District. The van actually belonged to Cindy McItire and was used at ger expense to help the Monroeville High School Marching Band.

Toast the boards of education of the Monroeville and Norwalk schools for recognizing good work and promoting from within. Monroeville chose David Stubblebine as Superintendent, while Norwalk selected Brad Cooley to be the new high school principal. None of those jobs are easy ones and both men are to be congratulated for their dedication. Roast the Democratic Party for failing to name a replacement for the 58th district seat in the state house of representatives, leaving our area without representation in Columbus. They knew the resignation of Matt Barrett was going to happen and they've had plenty of time since it did happen to get someone in the seat. It may all be a political game, but it shouldn't take this long to finish.

I read a statistic once that said half the people in Ohio had been fishing at least once, and the same statistic noted that many of these fished once or twice a year. Or more. That's a lot of fishermen. Some of those anglers are hard core, working out of glittery bass boats, trolling for muskies, hitting Lake Erie for walleye, fishing hard for smallmouths. But I suspect that most just like to go fishing. You see them everywhere. Drive around big lakes like Charles Mill, Knox, Pleasant Hill, Delaware and Clearfork, and they'll be scattered along the bank. They frequent city reservoirs, loaf along streams and rivers, usually with two forked willow sticks to hold their rods, maybe a lawn chair and a cooler, and they have a good time. The kids play some and fish some, adults talk and watch redwing blackbirds singing on cattail stems, a relaxing, good time way to spend a weekend afternoon. Bank fishermen. I've done a lot of bank fishing myself, and talked over the years to hundreds of shoreline sitters, and I've found they fall into two categories. One is the type that just wants to fish, and doesn't really want to catch much. They need a few bluegill or a bullhead or three to justify the trip, but too much action means too much baiting, fishy smelling hands, swallowed hooks to be extracted, all interfering with peaceful contemplation of lapping waves and that passing muskrat.

As the saying goes, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going.' The employees at Christie Lane Industries, the sheltered workshop operated by the Huron County Board of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities in this northern Ohio community, have a different take on that adage. When the going got tough, the tough elected to make stylish ceramic tiles.
