I would like to express my appreciation to the staff of the Norwalk Reflector and to Domino's Pizza for their support in our first annual Eagle Creek garage sale. A percentage of all sales is being donated to Stein Hospice. We hope to raise close to $1,500 by the time all checks are in. We all had a good time and the shoppers were wonderful. I think this was a real win-win experience and will hopefully become an annual affair.

Jim Westerhold was a success at what he did for one reason and one reason only he did it his way. Westerhold hosted a 45th anniversary party Sunday for employees of WLKR Radio. He was the first employee of the station when it was started by Ohio Radio in 1962 and he purchased it in 1979. And for the 18 years he owned it until selling the station Jan. 2, 1997, Westerhold called all of the shots.

"The Impossible Dream" seems surprisingly achievable in director Amanda Dehnert's commendable production of "Man of La Mancha," the opening show of the Cleveland Play House's 2007-08 season. The award winning musical, on-stage through Oct. 7, is perhaps best known for its inspiring anthem, which refers to the quest of righting the world's wrongs. It is the objective of lead character Don Quixote, an aged knight who refuses to believe the age of chivalry has died and that a prostitute named Aldonza is not a refined lady really named Dulcinea.

Toast Norwalk Mayor Sue Lesch and other city leaders for their efforts in starting a new drug education program in the schools. They have made drug testing kits (donated by local businesses) freely available to parents and they are holding educational sessions tonight and Thursday for anybody interested. The sessions only last an hour and everybody is invited. The sessions are at 7 tonight at the St. Paul Convocation Center and 7 p.m. Thursday at the Norwalk High School, Fisher-Titus Learning Center. Roast the gas station owners in Norwalk who have been sitting on the $2.99 gravy train the last couple of weeks. It appears the gas wars in town are over and everybody is happy charging the same price. Gas has been 25 cents cheaper in New London and Saturday in Bellevue it was selling for $2.76. A quarter a gallon adds up in a hurry. It comes down to supply and demand and right now the demand side is winning.
