mlboose@norwalkreflector.com When the Mill Street Bistro & Bar opens up in June, two chefs with international experience will be preparing the meals for Norwalk's newest upscale restaurant. Owner Joe Nagy hired Adriano Orrao and Bob Boutin as chefs. Orrao, an Italian who grew up in France just across the border from Italy, started working in a restaurant when he was 13 because his older brother worked in an Italian restaurant just across the border.

The week preceding Memorial Day has been designated as "National Recreational Water Illness Prevention Week." The goal of this year's recognition is to highlight the importance of healthy swimming behaviors in preventing recreational water illnesses (RWIs). State and local health departments across the country investigated more RWI outbreaks in 2007 than ever before. This upsurge is being driven by an increase in the number of RWI outbreaks caused by Cryptosporidium ("Crypto"), a chlorine resistant parasite, and is primarily associated with treated recreational water venues, such as pools and water parks.

Through the years I've found several complimentary descriptions of Norwalk in the 19th century. Visitors would note the high and dry location of Main Street, which before the Civil War was the principal part of the town, and would comment on the fine maple trees which literally grew over the streets in the days before utility wires. As early as 1847 when Henry Howe published his Historical Collections of Ohio, he noted that Norwalk "lies principally on a single street, extending nearly 2 miles and beautifully shaded by maple trees." These trees had been set out only ten years earlier, but must have thrived in the sandy soil of Main Street. At that time they extended through the business district as well as the residential area, but I doubt that any of the originals remain.

LAKEWOOD - One of the potential problems with nostalgic shows is that a character fondly looking back on a certain time can get overly sentimental. Such a show might include too much narration and not enough action, in essence boring someone who didn't live through that time or share the character's enthusiasm. Thankfully, the charming, amusing musical comedy "My Favorite Year,' which opened Friday at Lakewood's Beck Center for the Arts, isn't guilty of either.
