There's little question that most Huron County bass fishermen are going to be plying their sport in farm ponds, and it can get a little ho-hum at this time of year after a long spring and summer of fishing. If routine is becoming a problem, I've a new way of enjoying your favorite activity. I call it "the farm pond walk around." A one-acre pond is ideal for this brand of fishing. You can do it in a half acre spot, though it's over then too quickly, or in a two- to three-acre little lake which might take more time than you have available. I try it a couple of times a year in one pond or another, and the basic idea is seeing how many bass I can catch (and almost always release) on the trip.

The city of Norwalk marks its 190th birthday this week. That is, Platt and Sally DeForest Benedict with their five children, arrived on Sept. 9, 1817, to settle on the village plat, which had been surveyed the year before. Their arrival meant that the village actually had permanent residents. However, when they reached the Lockwood and Gibbs cabins on Old State near Gallup, they learned that their log cabin, built earlier in the year, had burned during the summer. Platt had been in Ohio early in the year, built a cabin and hired a man to look after it and clear some land. By accident the cabin was destroyed and a new one had to be built when the Benedicts arrived.
