Slang Smack, Horse, Mud, Brown Sugar, Junk, Black Tar, Big H, Dope, Skag Heroin affects your brain. Heroin enters the brain quickly. It slows down the way you think, slows down reaction time, and slows down memory. This affects the way you act and make decisions. Heroin affects your body. Heroin poses special problems for those who inject it because of the risks of HIV, hepatitis B and C, and other diseases that can occur from sharing needles. These health problems can be passed on to sexual partners and newborns. Heroin is super-addictive. Heroin is highly addictive because it enters the brain so rapidly.

WILLARD - The Willard Community Diversity Council is again inviting the entire community Sunday to join in celebrating the life of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. at a pancake breakfast. King was the most visible leader of the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s. He believed in a brotherhood of mankind, and he fought to break down barriers between races. His non-violent activities to help bring about cultural acceptance and improvements for the poor led to him becoming the youngest person ever to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964.

For some time I've been researching the story of a Norwalk man who "made good' with his musical talent, but never rose as high as he might have, probably due to the times in which he lived. I speak of Jay W. Noble, born as Jacob Noble, Jr., in Norwalk on April 23, 1874. His parents were Jacob Noble and Charlotte Scott, who lived at 185 Milan Avenue in a house which has been moved to 15 W. Willard. Both Jacob and Charlotte had been born in slavery and settled in Norwalk after escaping their bondage.

No surprises Wednesday night in front of a big crowd at the convocation center. Those who came to see Monroeville's "Big Three' wrestlers at work were not disappointed. Hunter Stieber, one of two Monroeville freshmen, worked just over a minute total in his 103 pounds matches, getting pins in 37 seconds and 28 seconds. Equally impressive was the second freshman, 171 pound Chris Phillips. He took on one of the best from both Western Reserve and St. Paul, winning by technical fall in 2:27 over Western's J.J. Boyce and then bumped up a weight to 189 in facing St. Paul's Alex Welfle. He got the fall in 1:33 in that one. Read the rest of this story in Today's Reflector...

Ice fishing season will be upon us just as soon as area lakes and farm ponds reach a safe ice thickness, and that means it'll be time to catch those first of the winter meals of bluegill and crappie fillets. Coming out of ice water they'll be unusually tasty. But after four or five trips for panfish, it can get a little dull. You know where they are and what they'll bite, and shortly you'll be looking around for something new and different. Rainbow trout are definitely new and different.
