cashby@norwalkreflector.com Convicted drug dealer Susan J. Terlizzi plans to appeal a jury's decision finding her guilty of selling marijuana. "It's just wrong. I plan to appeal absolutely," the 44-year-old Wakeman resident said. "My attorney is aware of that. I'm going to prove my innocence." On April 19, 2006, she sold "less than 100 grams" of marijuana to a female confidential informant at the Firelands Manor Mobile Home Park, Wakeman Police Chief Tim Hunker said. Terlizzi was one of several people accused in connection with the drug bust organized by the METRICH Drug Task Force.

Most producers who have worked with the Farm Service Agency are aware that low interest loans are available on grain they harvest once it is stored in the bin or at an approved warehouse. These loans are for a nine month period and offer the producer an opportunity to use the funds disbursed under the loan for operating capital or other needed purposes. The current interest rate on loans is 5.125 percent. This will be the rate used for any loans disbursed in November. In January all outstanding loans will have the interest rate adjusted to whatever the rate is on Jan. 1. The process for obtaining a loan is very simple. You just stop into the FSA Office and fill out a CCC-666 to start the process.

Ohio's archery season opened Sept. 29, but it didn't mean much to many area bow hunters. Lots went out on opening day, of course, because it's traditional, and some made a few trips later. But it's during the rut that bow and crossbow hunters become serious, because deer move then, and the big bucks get silly. It's the year's best chance to put antlers on the wall and meat in the freezer.

"You would think that these guys who are so nasty to each other belong to opposing political clubs," stated McBeane to start the morning. "I can't believe the things they say about their primary opponent in several renditions of multi-colored, slick campaign literature which showed up in our mailbox recently. Frankly, I didn't like it. I think the stuff influenced my vote, but not in the way they intended." "Well, I think you had to read the fine print a little bit. One bunch of propaganda was paid for by a group from Washington. If you looked carefully you could see that the group took full responsibility for some of things which were said, leaving the candidate off the hook," reminded the historian. "It reminded me of actions taken before when Bush campaigned against John McCain several years ago."

Sunday is Veteran's Day, a national holiday which originated to commemorate the signing of the armistice which ended World War I on Nov. 11, 1918. It was called Armistice Day way back "when I was a boy," but has been designated for several years as a day to honor all veterans. We still have Memorial Day, of course, to offer special honors for deceased veterans, especially those who died in the line of duty. One veteran with local ties is probably completely forgotten now, but I intend to tell her story and (I hope) preserve it. During the Anzio Invasion in Italy during World War II, a hospital tent on the beach behind the invading Allied troops was bombed by the Germans on Feb. 6, 1944. The chief nurse and her assistant were among the casualties. One of the wounded was a surgeon. All of the dead were buried in a common grave in the new American Military Cemetery in Nettuno, Italy.

Play is natural for young children. It is also important because it impacts their social, emotional, cognitive and physical development. Through play, children learn about shapes, colors, cause and effect, and themselves. Play is a way of communicating joy, fear, sadness and anxiety. Parents know that play is good for children. When at play, children are busy and enjoy themselves. Seeing your child smiling and having fun brings joy and satisfaction to you as well. What you may not always know or focus on is how play is really helping your child develop. Play is essential to a child's healthy growth and development.

Children learn by moving, touching, tasting, seeing, smelling and hearing.

mlboose@norwalkreflector.com It took 62 years, but William Rupp has finally gotten the bronze star he earned searching for Japanese holdouts in the Philippine jungle in World War II. Rupp, 83, of Norwalk, was drafted in 1943 after his first semester at Bowling Green State University. In boot camp, he volunteered to train as a paratrooper and entered the 511th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 11th Airborne Division. His company's job was to capture any Japanese soldiers left on Leyte, an island in the Philippines, after the U.S. Army's first wave moved on. "It was a lot of walking and a lot of rain," Rupp said. "We landed on the east side on Thanksgiving Day and we started inland."
