If the fees are not paid within 10 days, the tenant or property owner can have a suit field against them for recovery of these costs. Or, the costs may be collected as an assessment.

Since this is the first "School Matters' column of 2008, I decided to take some advice and talk about some New Year's resolutions. By now you are tired of hearing about diets, health clubs, and exercise regiments (not that I couldn't benefit from all of the above) and I will refrain from mentioning them again. Instead I will offer some resolutions inspired by some events at Norwalk Catholic School. My first resolution is to remember and honor the institutions and people who have influenced your past. Just the other day I was helping set up for a luncheon in the St. Paul Parish Center. In the distance I saw a man walking about the room, looking at pictures and checking out the facilities. He asked a few questions about the building and then asked for a pen. He signed a book and placed it into a bookcase. I approached him to retrieve the pen and introduced myself. He introduced himself as Mike Gottfried, and he began to explain his early years at St. Paul in the late sixties. As he spoke, what really struck me was a genuine sense of gratitude he felt towards St. Paul High. Even though he knows none of the current teaching staff, he gave me a donation to pay for their lunch because, in his words, "the people of St. Paul's were so good to me.'

The stories of shipwrecks and near-wrecks on Lake Erie fascinate me, not because I would wish to be any part of them but because I admire the brave people who have so many times tried save lives and make the lake a safe place. Several of these stories center around Huron, and I've told some of them before. Just after midnight on Nov. 6, 1842 the steamboat Vermillion came into Huron harbor with the usual crew and some 40 to 50 passengers sleeping. Capt. Brundage was in charge on a Detroit to Buffalo run. Within 20 minutes of docking the ship was ablaze. A can of turpentine was being loaded when it broke open and spilled into the hold. Some of the turpentine splashed against the furnace and ash pans. The ship being wooden, it didn't take long to become totally involved in fire. The moorings either burned or were cut before the passengers could be awakened and gotten off. The burning Vermillion drifted out of the harbor as the lifeboats were being launched. At least one of them was swamped. Most passengers saved themselves by jumping into the water and swimming to shore. The steamboat Chicago was close by and picked up some of the passengers. It also towed the Vermillion back into harbor where the hulk burned out and sank. It was known that three passengers had died, but all of the crew was saved and it was noted that the crew tried hard to fight the fire. There were times that the crew abandoned ship even before the passengers could. We have to remember that these steamboats burned rapidly once they ignited. The passengers and crew lost all of their luggage and some 800 to 900 barrels of flour in the hold were lost. There was also some damage to the pier and light, both of which were wooden at the time.

mlboose@norwalkreflector.com Move over, thin mints. When Girl Scouts hit the sidewalks today they'll have a new cookie to sell Cinna-Spins with only 100 calories per pack. Of course, the Scouts will also have the popular mints, the best selling variety for years. Caramel Delites, Peanut Butter Patties and four other varieties they have sold for years also are still available. Cathy Robustellini, leader of troop 555, said cookie sales help her troop with both fun learning activities and in community service. Troop 555 was the top selling group in Norwalk last year with the 18 girls selling 291 cases or almost 3,500 boxes of cookies.
