We have an opportunity in next week's election to select an excellent candidate to serve as one of our Huron County Commissioners. I have known Chuck Furey for many years and have been able to observe him in both business and community settings. Chuck has demonstrated his talents as a banker and would bring years of experience and understanding of the unique financial issues facing our county.

I hit the big 5-0 last year and I'm four days away from my 51st birthday. A lot of people say things change when you hit 50 ... you don't feel as peppy as you once did and you have a lot of health concerns.

FEB. 28, 1933 The top stories in the Norwalk Reflector-Herald on this date 75 years ago: Community supports temporary restrictions The people of Norwalk and Huron County clearly showed today that they realized that local banking restrictions resulted wholly from outside influence and that the action constituted the best possible protection for each and every depositor in view of the developments elsewhere. This was shown by the normal processes of business in the banks here today. Also many people voted these sentiments. Even more concretely this favorable reaction was expressed in new deposits received yesterday and today by the local bank. There are no limitations on new deposits.

I encourage Huron County voters to strongly support and vote for Chuck Furey in the Huron County commissioners race. Chuck has been a friend, counselor and colleague for many years and is without a doubt an excellent candidate with a wide range of business and finance skills. In business life, Chuck was the vice-president and regional manager for corporate banking with National City Bank. Through his position he was responsible for more than $450 million coming to the area for commercial loans, which through his efforts has helped Huron County grow.

The photo was sent to me as an e-mail attachment. It shows a vehicle that would never have been invented if madmen were not loose in the world. The rear half of the vehicle in question bears a resemblance to a Chevy Suburban. But the fenders and undercarriage are covered with armor, as is the entire extended hood and front fenders. A rod carrying a rectangular black sensor of some sort protrudes 10 feet ahead from the front bumper. Another antenna or sensor sticks straight up from just behind the rear window. On top is more armor and what looks to be a crow's nest of some sort. The truck has huge tires with heavy treads, and it is painted the same brown color as the desert through which it is driving.

NEW LONDON - New London is a very small town, but it can boast of three healthcare professionals, each of whom has served the community for many years. Chiropractor Mike Collins has worked in the village for 33 years, he has raised his family there and both his wife and daughter are involved in his practice. He likes the obvious advantages of a small town, such as no traffic jams, knowing almost everyone and being able to treat "friends and neighbors."
