It is sad to see the deception portrayed by the pro-Ohio Lottery add in the paper Friday, May 23. It portrayed a smiling young boy playing (I assume) video games in his room. It went on to say lottery ... provided over $669 million to Ohio schools. 1. By implication it says one of the ways to support our schools is to gamble ... that's a losing bet!

Toast Norwalk Middle School teacher Mary Cillo for being named local "Teacher of the Year" by her peers. Cillo, in her 31 years as a teacher, simply said "Kids can teach us a lot if we let them." And as a special treat at her presentation, Cillo's brother, Fisher-Titus Medical Center President Pat Martin, also was honored with the "Friendship of Education Award." Roast Huron County health department director Tim Hollinger's suggestion of a county-wide rating system to give "grades" posted at the entrances of restaurants. While having some merit, the grading system could be too subjective to be fair and would only create another posting requirement for the eateries. The difference between an "A" and a "B" could be devastating to the customer base of a restaurant and probably wouldn't have prevented the recent salmonella outbreak at Casa Fiesta. All actual inspection reports, showing major and minor infractions, are published in the Reflector for everyone to see and make their own opinions.

mlboose@norwalkreflector.com SANDUSKY Thousands of people took advantage of NASA Plum Brook's open house over the weekend to tour facilities that are developing the newest technology for America's space program.

FITCHVILLE - After the initial firestorm of controversy with the news that Freedom Valley Campground would be the state's first all-male campground catering to gays, the new owners were a little concerned about the community's reaction. Their sexual orientation wasn't a big deal in Cleveland, but they had chosen a rural, conservative area and a gay campground in Fitchville was a big change.

It's a well-known fact of local history (or, it ought to be) that Huron County originally included all of the original Firelands grant. Ruggles Township eventually became part of Ashland County; Danbury Township is now in Ottawa County; and Erie County was formed from Huron County in two divisions - one in 1838 and the other in 1840. Not long ago I was at a gathering where someone expounded a story that when it was proposed to form Erie County in 1838, everyone in Huron County agreed with the idea on the premise that that territory was just swamp and waste. Actually, the story is much different from that and had a number of factors in play at the time.

In 1963, only 17 million Americans were age 65 or older. Today, there are more than 36 million Americans over the age of 65, accounting for 12 percent of the total population. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that, by 2050, 87 million Americans will be age 65 or older - 21 percent of the population. One out of every nine baby boomers will live to be at least age 90. May is Older Americans Month. We thought it was important to take time out to celebrate the older Americans in our community. They play a vital role in our communities by providing volunteer and community service, by acting as historians of our traditions and cultures, and much more.
