Hundreds of people were on hand yesterday, as the ribbon was cut on Norwalk High School’s brand new William and Julia Reagan All-Sports Complex.

During the planning period, the massive structure received a $300,000 boost from the William and Julia Reagan Foundation. A resident of Utah, Reagan is a Norwalk native and a 1963 graduate of Norwalk High School. During yesterday’s unveiling ceremony, he said the complex will benefit student-athletes for many years to come.

 

The 2015 Huron County Fair is underway.

Daily admission is $7, and that does include rides. On tap tonight: country singers Craig Wayne Boyd and Austin Webb. They’ll perform in the grandstand, starting at 7:30. General admission tickets for tonight’s concert are $12 each. Box seats are $18 each, and track and pit seats are $20 apiece. Tomorrow is Kids Day and Free Day. That means there’s no charge for admission until 3. Rides will be extra. Wednesday is Veterans Day, featuring one cent admission for veterans with proper ID. Thursday is Senior Citizens Day…Admission will be one penny for anyone 60 or over.

 

Tomorrow’s meeting of the Huron County Commissioners will begin at 11am, in the Ag Heritage Area, at the Huron County Fairgrounds.

 

An apparent lockout, at a local plant.

A source said Monroeville Industrial Moldings on Ontario Street in Norwalk chained the doors this morning. We’ll have more, as information becomes available.

 

Bond is set at $1,000,000, for a Norwalk man accused of raping multiple children.

As we first told you last week, 72-year-old Hershel Prater Jr. is facing a single count of rape, for crimes involving a child under 10 years of age. More charges are expected, as Norwalk police detectives continue to interview more potential victims. Investigators believe the alleged acts occurred for years, all in Norwalk.

 

The U-S Department of Agriculture will invest an additional $5-million-dollars to help improve water quality in the western basin of Lake Erie.

The goal is to help farmers implement conservation practices that benefit water quality and reduce toxic algae.

 

The numbers are in, and they show, so far this year nearly 60,000 new businesses have been formed in Ohio.

In July, the number of start-ups topped 9,000. That’s up from 7,000 last year.

A Bellevue man is in the Erie County Jail, charged in connection with crimes committed Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning.

According to reports, 27-year-old Alan Osborn is facing eight charges, including fleeing and eluding and driving under the influence.

He was turned over to Erie County deputies on a previous warrant from Bellevue and then was taken to Firelands Regional Medical Center for treatment of wounds caused by drugs. Osborn was able to sneak out of the hospital, and steal an SUV from a nearby home. From there, he led authorities on a high-speed chase from Sandusky to Vermilion and back. He eventually jumped out of the SUV and fled on foot, then surrendered.
