Drainage problems were the focus of public participation again at Norwalk Council Tuesday night. Dana Binting told council that her mother's property on Wedgewood Drive was flooded recently and she believed the problem wasn't rain water, but drainage problems with the nearby retention pond. Beverley Neel, Binting's mother, said before the meeting she knew the city added an 8-inch pipe to drain the retention pond after the flooding in June 2006, but she still has problems.

Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul in the Republican Party state primaries and caucuses to date has received about 4 percent of the Republican votes. That is shameful for Republicans. Paul is the only Republican candidate for president who, if elected president, advocates an agenda and program that reduces drastically our federal spending and national debt which in the last seven years has mushroomed from $5 trillion to about $10 trillion; $1 trillion is one thousand billions. Soon you're talking real amounts of money.

To see a splash of color in the heavens, step outside Wednesday night to get a look at the last total lunar eclipse until December 2010. Americans in this part of the country will be able to see the moon turn red and possibly turquoise in the sky. Maximum eclipse will occur at 10:26 p.m. According to the Web site http://science.nasa.gov, the moon will turn red because that is the color of Earth's shadow created by the layer of dusty air surrounding the planet. The eclipse will occur when the moon passes through the shadow of Earth.

The final, correct land survey of the "Fire Lands" of Ohio was being completed and the woods resounded to the shouts of the surveyors at work. The Fire Lands, soon shortened to Firelands, is a tract of 500,000 acres at the western end of the Connecticut Western Reserve, given to residents of Norwalk, New Haven, East Haven, Groton, Danbury, Ridgefield, New London, Greenwich and Fairfield who lost property due to British raids in Connecticut during the American Revolution.

akrause@norwalkreflector.com MILAN The Milan post of the American Legion must deal with an issue faced by many other veterans organizations: recruiting younger members. "The World War II Veterans are rapidly passing away and younger men don't want to become involved," post adjutant Herb Jones said.
