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.
