Roast the Norwalk Post Office, a reader said. The post office has been going through extensive foundation work and had to remove its handicap ramp. It appears the ramp is done and they are just waiting on the railing. The reader says he misses the ramp and is encouraging the post office to speed up so he can buy his stamps. Toast local residents Tom Root and his son, Travis, a cadet at the United States Air Force Academy, for their quick work last week saving the U.S. flag and a Missing In Action flag that had come off the poll in front in the Norwalk Post Office. Sheri Thomas, owner of Sheri's Coffee House in Norwalk, reported the two were sitting in her shop when the rope snapped on the flag poll. The two rushed across the street and with the help of an unidentified man, picked up the flags, folded them, and left them in lobby of the post office with a note explaining what happened.

In the course of my research I have learned of a fourth man from the Firelands area who sat on the Ohio Supreme Court. He was Selwyn N. Owen, and joins with Ebenezer Lane of Sandusky in the 19th century and Clifford Brown of Norwalk and Thomas Moyer of Sandusky in the 20th Century as members of that judicial body. Selwyn N. Owen was born in 1836 in Steuben County, New York and was about six months old when his parents (Horatio and Clarissa Ransom Owen) settled in Norwich Township of Huron County. As soon as the railroad was built through that township and the village of Havana was established as a station, Horatio Owen established his home there and built a store and a grain warehouse.

What is the function of the board of education? School board members are citizens whose decisions affect our children - what they learn, who will teach them, and what kinds of facilities are available in the district. A board of education is charged with the duty of managing the public schools within its jurisdiction. The Ohio Revised Code gives boards the authority to make rules and regulations as it deems necessary for the governance of the local schools. The board hires a superintendent and a treasurer. The superintendent is hired to administer the established rules and regulations. The board hires the treasurer to serve as the Chief Financial Officer, responsible for the prudent accountability of all money received and spent by the district. The board has the primary authority to exercise supervision and control for both academic and extracurricular activities. There are 723 school boards in the state of Ohio with more than 3,415 members.

Toast Jack Kuhlman of Monroeville, who is giving the gift of life to a friend and co-worker at CertainTeed in Avery. Kuhlman is donating a kidney later this week to Jim Kimberlin, of Bellevue. Kuhlman, 39, and Kimberlin, 42, met 11 years ago at work and became friends. After and industrial accident in 1994, Kimberlin discovered he suffered from a genetic kidney disease. Once a healthy kidney is transplanted, the recipient can live a normal, healthy life. A benefit fundraiser was held Saturday and was a huge success. It's great to see such an outpouring of support and we wish all the best to Kimberlin in his recovery. Roast the continued problems plaguing the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections. With the Ohio primary just seven weeks away, the county's new director, Jane Platten, has ordered a change in voting systems three weeks ago . With absentee voting starting in less than a month, time is not on Platten's side. In 2006, county voters first voted on touch-screen machines. The board had nearly a year to prepare, but the election still was a headache, with final results delayed nearly a week. The machines have been scrapped and on March 4, voters will fill out paper ballots with pens at nearly 600 polling places in the county. The ballots will be taken to the board's warehouse where they will be read by 15 optical scanners. Previously, votes have been counted at board of elections offices. While we applaud Platten's efforts, this is nothing but a step backwards as we try to move forward in the technology age.
