Aaron W. Stark, son of Drs. Richard and Mary Ann Stark of Kalamazoo, Mich. and grandson of Robert and Ruth Stark of Norwalk, graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York on May 26, with a bachelor of science degree. Richard B. Cheney, Vice President of the United States, was the guest speaker and presented the graduation address. At the conclusion of the graduation ceremony, the traditional hat toss took place with hundreds of children running on to the field to retrieve a hat. The cadets themselves made sure that every child left the field with a hat. At the conclusion of the graduation ceremony, each cadet had a private Commissioning Ceremony with their families and friends. At this time, the cadets are commissioned in the United States Army as second lieutenants. Stark, along with several other cadets, chose the beautiful Cadet Chapel for their commissioning ceremonies. He had requested his two grandfathers, both of whom had served in the U.S. Navy during World War II, to pin his LT. bars on his uniform.

No one wants to think about end of life issues, such as advanced directives, living wills and funeral planning. Yet, it is something that everyone will face eventually. That is why Fisher-Titus Medical Center is teaming up with Evans Funeral Home in Norwalk to offer an "End of Life" seminar to the community at 7 p.m. June 19 at FTMC's Norwalk meeting rooms A and B, 272 Benedict Ave., Norwalk. "Advance planning with any situation is better than crisis planning," said Sharon Harwood, FTMC risk manager. "When you are already under the stress of having a family member under a terminal diagnosis, you are trying to process so much information. It is helpful to know and have the discussions in advance about what a patient wants and doesn't want and identify who he or she wants to lead the discussion if the patient can't." Speakers will include Harwood, FTMC social worker Rebecca Hoyt and John Evans of Evans Funeral Home. The group will discuss the difference between advanced directives and living wills; selecting assisted living vs. nursing home and benefits of pre-planning a funeral. Advance directive booklets will be available.

For the third year in a row Norwalk Firefighters Local 1199 has formed a special bond with Matthew and Nathan Lucal of Norwalk who have both been diagnosed with congenital muscular dystrophy. These firefighters are dedicated to helping MDA and the many other families like the Lucals. On June 20, Jamie Starcher and John Soisson of the Norwalk Fire Department will rally together any willing participants at the fire station and ride to MDA summer camp at Camp Cheerful in Strongsville for the third annual Hope Ride. This event is a joy for the children at camp to hear the roars of more than 50 bikes riding into camp. But it is also a great pleasure for the firefighters and fellow riders who have a wonderful time raising money to benefit MDA and spending the afternoon cooking, serving lunch and playing with the children attending MDA camp. Proceeds from the Hope Ride will not only fund MDA's Summer Camp, but help families in the Northeastern Ohio area in many ways. MDA provides assistance with the purchases of wheelchairs, leg braces, and communication devices for clients and funds local support groups. MDA also maintains a clinic at Metro Health Medical Center.

Douglas Clifford's former co-workers at the Huron County Public Defender's office miss him now that he is the Norwalk assistant law director.
