The Knights of Columbus is selling "Keep Christ in Christmas" vehicle magnets to promote the true spirit of Christmas. People often forget the real reason for the Christmas season while they are buying presents, decorating their homes, and attending parties. These magnets are a way to silently evangelize this sentiment. The illustrated magnets in the shape of the nativity scene are sold nationwide by hundreds of local groups to raise funds for their causes. They are displayed on vehicles in all 50 states and several foreign countries. Last year 200,000 magnets were distributed, and this year the number will be at least 360,000.

How do you make the decision to close school? As superintendent, making the decision to close school during inclement weather is often very difficult. A variety of factors are taken into consideration before a decision is made. When school is closed, many families are affected adversely and need to make alternative arrangements for child care. The safety of our students, however, is always the top priority in our decision whether or not to open or close our schools.

Toast the Missouri Tigers and West Virginia Mountaineers for graciously stepping aside and allowing THE Ohio State University Buckeyes to play for the national championship Jan. 7 in New Orleans against LSU. After losing to Illinois and dropping to No. 7 in the polls, the Buckeyes set their sights on beating Michigan and playing in the Rose Bowl. They beat Michigan, then sat in the clubhouse for two weeks and watched everybody ahead of them drop like flies. Unlike last year when the heavily-favored Buckeyes were trounced by Florida in the title game, Ohio State goes into this year's contest as an early five-point underdog. No respect. This year the Buckeyes have something to prove. Toast the efforts of the Main Street Norwalk officials for Saturday's uptown holiday kickoff. The visit from Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland helped liven up the festivities, while Santa Claus was there for the children. It's too bad they had to scrap the parade, and we have to roast the lack of support for the uptown efforts. Where are all of the businesses and politicians who line up for the Fourth of July parade? Isn't there one school band out there that would like to participate in a parade? We thought everybody loves a parade.
