Plans continue for growth at Norwalk Commons as developer David Conwill started annexation proceedings for the site of the old Batesville Casket Company on U.S. 250 from the township into the city.

Toast Casa Fiesta for voluntarily throwing out its entire inventory of food after the Norwalk restaurant was linked to a salmonella scare. As owner Ramon Ornelas said, "It is 100 times better to lose inventory than to have customers get sick." Before Casa Fiesta re-opened Friday, Ornelas said, workers disinfected every inch of the restaurant just in time for today's Cinco De Mayo celebration. Roast the lack of security at the Shady Lane Drive storage area where law enforcement officials were keeping about 160 pounds of marijuana seized in a traffic stop. We realize hindsight is 20-20, but after jurors and others including one of the defendants were taken to the barn to see the marijuana as part of the trial proceedings, one would think it might be a good idea to have a guard there 24/7. But instead, thieves broke in and made off with more than 100 pounds of the stuff. Prosecutor Russell Leffler estimated one of the stolen container's street value is between $100,000 and $120,000. Cheech and Chong would be set for life.
