For some time I've been researching the story of a Norwalk man who "made good" with his musical talent, but never rose as high as he might have, probably due to the times in which he lived. I speak of Jay W. Noble, born as Jacob Noble, Jr., in Norwalk on April 23, 1874. His parents were Jacob Noble and Charlotte Scott, who lived at 185 Milan Avenue in a house which has been moved to 15 W. Willard. Both Jacob and Charlotte had been born in slavery and settled in Norwalk after escaping their bondage.

It might seem that hunting is essentially over for the year. Nearly all of the deer seasons have gone, fall wild turkey is only a memory, and some other hunts have passed into history. But there's one season that Buckeye hunters can still enjoy, a season that will see you in the woods alone or nearly so, and that's early winter squirrel hunting. Ohio's 2006 bushytail season began Sept. 1 and will end Jan. 31 with a six-animal limit, but the last weeks draw few hunters.

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.
