This is to the coward who was riding a snowmobile on private property last Wednesday night on North Old State Road when you hit my dog (who was on our own property). Besides the fact that you weren't man enough to stop and let me know you hit her, she was injured badly enough I had to have her back leg amputated this morning. We are here visiting from Georgia due to my father's illness, and it's a shame my dog was not safe on my father's property because of losers like you. Just so you know, it cost me $1,000 to pay for the surgery, not to mention her pain and suffering. I hope your joyride was worth it.

This may seem to be a simple question at first, but if you have never made a real-life 9-1-1 emergency call, it may be more difficult question than you think. Everyone knows what number to dial when an emergency strikes, but have you ever thought about these questions? What kind of emergency do I call for? What do I say? Who am I going to be speaking to and where are they located?

Dear Jane, I am struggling on how to create a home office/guestroom in the space I have. I need the room to function well as an office because I have my own home-based business, but I want it to look great for guests. My thoughts are to create a wall bed, desk and shelves, but I don't know the first place to start. Can you help? Sincerely, Melissa

mlboose@norwalkreflector.com Flooding was the topic at city council's work session Tuesday night as a company presented two alternatives to solve problems on the south side of the city. Arcadis, the company that has worked with the city in the past, gave two ideas - adding a new storm sewer outlet to carry the runoff from undeveloped property to the trunk sewer to the north on Executive Drive or adding a new storm sewer and an additional pipe segment from a new catch basin to the Manchester Meadows detention basin. The company has not figured costs for either alternative. About a dozen residents attended the meeting to let council know of their continuing problems with flooding.

My mail is so disappointing - mostly catalogs and fliers and advertisements. I am sure that the people who send it all have visions of me reading their offer carefully and leaping into action to buy or call or contribute as requested. Instead, I throw away most of it without a glance.
