For the first time since 1939, the Oregon Ducks are headed to the Final Four. The last time the Ducks were in the Final Four of the NCAA men’s DI basketball tournament they were the Webfoots. For a bit of local history, the last time Oregon was in the Final Four, they played Ohio State. The 1939 NCAA tournament MVP and top scorer was Greenfield’s Jimmy Hull, who scored 58 points for Ohio State.

  • Great Oaks graduates leave high school with experience, independence and a bright future
    Monday, March 27, 2017 11:11 AM
    We enjoy opening people’s eyes to realize that career-technical education is a viable option for all students. It’s not for just anyone, and it’s not always easy – students must learn complex academic and professional skills – but Great Oaks graduates can tell you that the hard work pays off.

  • Celebrating the women in Congress
    Monday, March 27, 2017 1:14 AM
    As we celebrate Women’s History Month, I want to recognize the women in the 115th Congress for their commitment to public service and policy, their examples of leadership, and their mark on history.

  • House conservatives kept their word
    Sunday, March 26, 2017 1:02 PM
    I applaud House conservatives for keeping their word to the American people and standing up against Obamacare Lite. I look forward to passing full repeal of Obamacare in the very near future. Earlier this month, I introduced the Obamacare Repeal Act (S. 554), which is the same legislation, with an updated timeline, to repeal major components of Obamacare that an overwhelming Republican majority sent to President Obama’s desk in January 2016.

  • Why I support Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation
    Saturday, March 25, 2017 1:48 PM
    Judge Gorusch understands that his job is to be fair—not to impose his views on people. As he put it in his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, his job is “not about politics…If judges were just secret legislators, declaring not what the law is but what they would like it to be, the very idea of a government by the people and for the people would be at risk.“ I think he’s right. Judges should not try to legislate from the bench.

    God operates on the pinnacle of the superlative! The apostle Paul writes in the Ephesian letter that our Creator “is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20). We have no comprehension concerning the limitless possibilities He can turn into realities. It is all much more than we can get into mind and heart.

  • Homeland Security: Rhetoric vs. Reality
    Thursday, March 23, 2017 9:35 AM
    It is no secret that ISIS and other violent extremists want to exploit our nation’s generosity and welcoming spirit to sneak terrorists onto American soil. We can, and must, take reasonable measures to prevent that. It is reasonable, responsible in fact, to put a pause on accepting refugees from these nations in order to fix the flaws in the process and instill confidence in the system.

    Country living has also taught me that taking the time to stack firewood is somewhat like taking the time and to plant straight rows across our fields. There is nothing quite like climbing down off of the tractor at the end of a spring day and looking with pride across a field well sowed.

  • Boys of summers past: The King of Diamonds, Part II
    Wednesday, March 22, 2017 1:43 PM
    How great would it have been to have stood on the pitcher’s mound, ball in hand, or in the batter’s box in Crosley Field, or Ebbets Field, or Forbes Field, or the Polo Grounds, or Sportsman’s Park in the 1940s and 1950s? Clyde King got to see all of those places – and many more – during his six-plus decades in baseball.

  • ObamaCare Repeal vs. Reality
    Tuesday, March 21, 2017 12:00 PM
    Ohio Governor John Kasich said, “We cannot turn our backs on the most vulnerable. We can give them the coverage,… and make sure that we live in a country where people are going to say, ‘At least somebody is looking out for me.’” In fact, Gov. Kasich, your congressman, the CEO of UnitedHeath Group, CareSource in Ohio (probably the chief beneficiary of Ohio’s Medicaid expansion), or the AMA are not looking out for you—but don’t mind using you to promote their own interests.
