Norwalk's First Baptist Church is fast approaching its 190th birthday, dating its official organization as Jan. 28, 1819, though informal meetings had been held several months earlier. The congregation has worshipped at its present location since 1836, with the present building having been completed and dedicated in 1880. The Rev. Jeremiah Hall was pastor of the church only from March of 1845 until September of 1846, but he had a decided effect on Baptist education in Norwalk and elsewhere. In 1845 the Methodists were operating the Norwalk Seminary in a building which stood where the Main Street School now stands. Methodist interest in this school was waning, however, as there was little room for expansion and Ohio Wesleyan University at Delaware was drawing support from all over the state. Accordingly, the Methodists closed their Norwalk Seminary in January of 1846.

If Joseph Frederick had been in his Juneau, Alaska, school that day in 2002 when he unfurled a 14-foot banner that read "Bong hits 4 Jesus," we'd say that then-principal Deborah Morse would have been within her rights to make him take it down. It could plausibly be interpreted as a message promoting the use of an illegal drug, although it could just as plausibly be interpreted as what it apparently was a publicity stunt. But Frederick was across the street from school, with a group of students watching the Winter Olympics torch relay pass by. Frederick was suspended from school for 10 days and he sued, saying his free speech rights had been violated.

We have long been a proponent of Huron County attempting to find ways to benefit from the large tourism industry in Sandusky, especially in terms of economic development. However, a recent proposal by Ohio Sen. Randy Gardner (R-Bowling Green), approaches the issue in the wrong way. Gardner has proposed a law that would prohibit schools from starting the year before Labor Day. He cites Cedar Point figures showing an increase of attendance from Michigan residents in the two weeks before Labor Day after that state enacted a school calendar similar to the one Gardner proposes.
