Toast Norwalk Middle School teacher Mary Cillo for being named local "Teacher of the Year" by her peers. Cillo, in her 31 years as a teacher, simply said "Kids can teach us a lot if we let them." And as a special treat at her presentation, Cillo's brother, Fisher-Titus Medical Center President Pat Martin, also was honored with the "Friendship of Education Award."
Roast Huron County health department director Tim Hollinger's suggestion of a county-wide rating system to give "grades" posted at the entrances of restaurants. While having some merit, the grading system could be too subjective to be fair and would only create another posting requirement for the eateries. The difference between an "A" and a "B" could be devastating to the customer base of a restaurant and probably wouldn't have prevented the recent salmonella outbreak at Casa Fiesta. All actual inspection reports, showing major and minor infractions, are published in the Reflector for everyone to see and make their own opinions.
