The occupants of a motorcycle were flown to a Toledo hospital with serious injuries after a rear-end collision with a minivan Monday. Olvera Baldemar, 51, and his passenger, Carolyn A. Olvera, 27, both of 19 Glover St., are listed in good condition at the Medical University of Toledo Medical Center, hospital spokeswoman Aimee Falk said this morning. Norwalk Police Officer Jared Ferris, in his report, said Baldemar was not wearing a helmet, but Olvera was. Both people were partially ejected from the bike at 6:13 p.m. when Baldemar hit the rear of the 2001 Ford Windstar driven by Todd T. Tanzillo, 38, of 27 W. Chestnut St., at the intersection of Milan Avenue and Westwind Drive.

I have a few things to air to you that concern me. I don't understand how we got so mislead. How can a few judges make decisions like the removal of God from our constitution and bend it to suit ACLU, and other atheism groups?

I have a few things to air to you that concern me. I don't understand how we got so mislead. How can a few judges make decisions like the removal of God from our constitution and bend it to suit ACLU, and other atheism groups? Shouldn't it be by the vote of the common people to make these important decisions such as "in God we trust," abortion, same sex marriages and removal of ten commandments from public places.

For me, theater is magic. It can take you from the present to any place you want to go. The cast and crew of Norwalk High School's play, "Beauty and the Beast,' took an entire audience on a magical trip. What a journey it was! A friend and I were absolutely amazed and truly impressed by the outstanding performance put on by the entire organization. The technical aspects (lighting, sound, special effects, and sets) were fantastic. The parents and volunteers who helped with the play should know that their efforts added so much to the audience's magical trip.

I was sitting in church before Mass Sunday and people continued to jam into the pews. Being Easter, the C&Eers (those who come to Mass on Christmas and Easter) flooded the church. Wayne Babcanec, a regular usher at the 11 a.m. service each Sunday, was busy trying to find seats for everybody. As he walked by, he leaned over and commented. "I should be selling tickets.'

Blankety-blank, it's another sheepshead! Ever hear those words before? If not, you'll hear them a lot this summer along Lake Erie, because they're a mighty common up there, and have been for long years. These silvery, flat-sided critters might be hard fighters (much better than walleye), and they might spice up many an otherwise wasted trip, but they've got a bad reputation. And for good reason. It's because they're lousy eating. The flesh of a sheepshead is absolutely the worst you'll ever try: rank, strong smelling, evil to the tastebuds just awful. How do I know? Because an old timer who lives down the road told me so. Did he ever eat one? "No siree, and I don't ever plan to eat one." So, how did he know they're so poor in a skillet? Because another old timer who lives even further down the road told him so. And he never ate one, either. Sheepshead or silver bass or freshwater drum or whatever have received a lot of bad press when it comes to eating qualities, and every single bit of it is undeserved. They're downright good eating! But most folks won't believe it and they keep swearing and throwing them back. Sheepshead are insect eaters, minnow eaters, and crayfish eaters just like walleye, not trash and garbage eaters as many think, and in other states their table qualities are rated high.

The full hearing in the civil protection order case of Sharen and Michael Gravelle was delayed Monday because neither person had hired an attorney. Huron County Magistrate Bradley Sales confirmed the estranged Clarksfield Township couple hadn't hired attorneys yet in the domestic violence case. He then stressed multiple times that he wouldn't be "clearing" the new court date, next Tuesday morning, with the attorneys' offices because no attorneys had appeared in Huron County Common Pleas Court in connection with the case. "I won't clear dates with any attorneys," Sales said. Sharen Gravelle, the plaintiff, said she contacted attorney Linda Fritz-Gasteier, who couldn't be reached for comment.

CLARKSFIELD - The Huron County Sheriff's Office and Clarksfield Township officials are investigating a botched theft that led to a fire at the township hall. Details are sketchy at this point, but it appears a pair of culprits were trying to steal gasoline. In the process, they spilled some of it, creating a trail that somehow ignited and started a fire that destroyed the car they were using and damaged the township's road grader. The burned-out car was transported to the sheriff's impound lot. Police tape was put up around the grader while deputies gathered evidence.
