Here are the top stories in the Reflector-Herald on this date in 1963:


Assign patrolman to Norwalk post

Sgt. Frank C. Nedveski, commander of the Norwalk Post of the State Highway Patrol, announced today a new patrolman will be assigned to duty at the local post beginning Monday.
Patrolman R.E. Rench will report to the Bucyrus District Post at 9 a.m. Monday for orientation and will arrive here later in the morning. He graduated yesterday from the State Highway Patrol Training Academy in Columbus.

Also joining the local post Monday will be two patrolmen transferred from the Castalia Post. They are F.A. Elliott and William Ruggle. Patrolmen A.E. Nelson and J.R. Farrell will be transferred to the Castalia Post from the local post.


Egg hunt preparation

Working on the project are Barbara Kocik, Mary Ann Strong, Linda Rogers, Alice Schlegelmilch, Virginia Bright, Barbara Wechter and Mrs. Borgia. Not pictured are Sally Spangler and Wanda Speigel.


Big bigmouth

(Photo caption) The conqueror of this largemouth bass, Evelyn Maria Kricha, was a mighty happy angler following her Wednesday afternoon catch. The ’daddy of them all’ tipped the scales at  5 5/8 pounds, measured 21.5 inches long and 16 inches in girth. Miss Kricha, vacationing from a practical nursing job, took just 10 minutes to land the fish after tempting him with a small bluegill. She caught the fish in a large pond in the Fitchville area. Just where in the area is a trade secret.


Dairy service unit record is cited

Dean Lawrence, president of the Huron Dairy Service Unit, was congratulated on behalf of the Dairy Service Unit for their work done in their dairy production program.

For the first time since dairy herd testing began in Huron County in 1921, cows on test have averaged over 400 pounds of butterfat.

A photo accompanying the story was from the award presentation ceremony and featured Larry Miller, Lawrence, Ginger Dobbins and Gilbert Dobbins.
