It’s not easy to get folks from coal companies and environmental groups in the same room. What’s even harder is finding something they can agree on. But after years of pushing for realistic energy policies that bring all sides together, I’m working to bridge that divide.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused last week, Mrs. Marie Thompson Rives, daughter of temperance pioneer Eliza Jane Trimble Thompson, was reading an account from The Union Signal of Nov. 16, 1903 when 500 delegates of the National Woman’s Christian Temperance Union made a pilgrimage to Hillsboro to pay tribute to Mother Thompson and the Hillsboro crusaders and visit the Mother Thompson home.

  • Portman on Obamacare: ‘I don’t think it’s appropriate just to repeal, we’ve got to put a replacement in place’
    Tuesday, July 18, 2017 6:16 PM
    "I don’t think it’s appropriate just to repeal, we’ve also got to put a replacement in place to help deal with the very issues I just talked about. Over the past year, as I’ve said, we’ve had a lot of destabilization of our insurance market in Ohio. That’s true around the country." – Sen. Rob Portman

  • It’s not about health care – it’s about control
    Tuesday, July 18, 2017 11:27 AM
    We’re moving toward the end-game of single payer, which assures the continued diversion of funds to the Swamp. These funds are no longer available for people to choose to spend. And worse, the system will carefully control the funds that actually provide care, say by punishing doctors for deviating from government-dictated “best practices.”

    This past weekend, I spent some time being envious of the owners of these cars and tractors. From the old Ford tractors – similar to ones I’m used to – with their handy 3-point hitches, to the old Farmalls, Internationals and green-paint models, it occurred to me that a farmer or land owner could actually work on these tractors, himself, without calling a dealership or mechanic who specializes in tractor repairs.

    Last December, the Ohio General Assembly overwhelmingly approved a bill that for the first time set up a permanent process to review the $9 billion-plus in annual exemptions, deductions and credits in the state tax code. House Bill 9, which was to create a committee to review these tax breaks, was approved by votes of 87-0 in the Ohio House and 31-0 in the Senate. Yet, seven months later, and nearly three months after the law required the House speaker and the Senate president to appoint members to the new committee, no one has been selected.

    As life-long residents of Hillsboro, Joe and I have often known the kindness of our neighbors and fellow citizens. Thank you for welcoming Joe and me and our family over the years. It has been our pleasure to be so active in our community and to the best of my ability, I will continue to be involved for my remaining years.

  • Healthcare critical to loved ones
    Sunday, July 16, 2017 10:08 AM
    I don’t have the magic answer to healthcare. But I do know what it isn’t. It isn’t the white noise we’re hearing from our national delegations – on both sides of the political divide. It’s not tax cuts, income distribution or a nameless/faceless industry. It’s our parents, children, siblings and spouses. It’s us. We deserve more.

    ARPANET – the government got it right. Amtrak – still a waste of money after all these years.

  • Shaking up the status quo in Washington
    Saturday, July 15, 2017 8:50 AM
    I was part of a group of Republican senators who sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at the end of June, requesting that rather than spending the whole month of August away from Washington, we remain in D.C. for a few weeks longer to get our work done.
