I have just completed the reading of our local socialist professor, Pat Saunders, and his most recent diatribe that is so willingly published by the Reflector. Mr. Saunders chides Mayor Lesch for her honesty and, let's face it, despite Mr. Saunders' eloquent rewrite of history the fact remains that Kucinich was a failed mayor and is so extreme in his views that he is not even seriously considered by a majority of his own party. Why this letter was published as a "visiting viewpoint' and not a standard letter to the editor is beyond me. The letter is more than 300 words, so I guess that kicks it into the "visiting viewpoint' slot.

Roast the Norwalk Post Office, a reader said. The post office has been going through extensive foundation work and had to remove its handicap ramp. It appears the ramp is done and they are just waiting on the railing. The reader says he misses the ramp and is encouraging the post office to speed up so he can buy his stamps. Toast local residents Tom Root and his son, Travis, a cadet at the United States Air Force Academy, for their quick work last week saving the U.S. flag and a Missing In Action flag that had come off the poll in front in the Norwalk Post Office. Sheri Thomas, owner of Sheri's Coffee House in Norwalk, reported the two were sitting in her shop when the rope snapped on the flag poll. The two rushed across the street and with the help of an unidentified man, picked up the flags, folded them, and left them in lobby of the post office with a note explaining what happened.

Willard resident Delores Ceja submitted to a drug test before her arraignment on a possession of heroin charge Monday. A few minutes later, her bond was revoked. Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper said Ceja should be held in custody without bond because she tested positive for opiates and Oxycontin. Huron County Assistant Public Defender David Longo said revoking his client's bond was inappropriate because Ceja had made her other court appearances. He also noted that any defendant being charged with drug possession could have a "dirty test" unless the person was seeking treatment.

Janet Freehling could have used some encouragement after editors of a Christian magazine had rejected two short stories the Norwalk resident and avid writer had submitted. People who shared Freehling's interest might have been able to offer her not only support, but pointers. Freehling did not know such a group existed in Norwalk, until local author Becky Warner told her about the Scribblers Club.
