Yes, this time of year is special for so many reasons – holiday craft sales, family gatherings, dinner plates piled high with the most amazing foods – but for one brief instant, perfection surrounds me completely in the still warmth of the fire. Eyes closed, I smile. I could not be more thankful.

    School board members are to be commended for putting an end to a political boondoggle – rife with potential conflicts of interests as it was. Sadly, for the board’s appropriate – and thoughtful – action, they were – like many others – insulted by the Republican mayor of Hillsboro – and for the record, the insult was made in his official capacity as mayor. Oh, well, you can lead a jackass to water, but it's still a jackass.

  • Dr. C. Ted Roush and the days of smiles and stories
    Monday, November 20, 2017 6:47 PM
    I never realized as I walked out the door on a warm, sunny day in June that I wouldn’t be walking back through that door to see him on Dec. 18 – or ever again for that matter. Instead of celebrating Dr. C. Ted Roush’s 80th birthday on Dec. 9, there will be a celebration of his life at 2 p.m. that day at Hillsboro Christian Academy. I was fortunate to see Uncle Ted the day he passed from this earth. The last thing I told him was, “We love you and will miss you, Uncle Ted.”

  • Leave no taxpayer behind

    The legislation that emerges from these deliberations will ultimately be judged by the prosperity it produces and the relief it brings to ALL American families. If it’s done right, the tax reform now taking shape in Congress can deliver that day. If it’s done wrong, we will have squandered the most important chance the American people have given us to materially improve their lives.

  • It’s always good to feel grateful
    Sunday, November 19, 2017 12:07 PM
    As the calendar turns swiftly toward Thanksgiving, it seems a fitting time to try and focus on the areas of gratitude and joy that do exist, even if it takes a bit more effort today. I think of how quickly the year has passed. Today, I’ll slow down and consciously think about that for which I’m most grateful.

  • Giving thanks this holiday season
    Saturday, November 18, 2017 10:04 AM
    Especially during the holiday season, I encourage Americans to find ways to give back to their communities. There are food pantries and churches in nearly every town collecting donations, so that all of our neighbors are able to put a good meal on their Thanksgiving table.

    Every real Christian is called to be a missionary for Christ. The mission is laid out before him or her: They are to encourage others to be forgiven of sin through “repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ” (Acts 20:21).

    U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio is introducing legislation that would allow underfunded private pension systems to borrow from the federal treasury, with no interest, in order to shore up their members’ retirement fund.

    It seems that of late we have heard more of the screeching caw of our neighboring eagles as we go about our creek valley lives, but it is still rare that we actually see them. Mid-summer, we saw one sitting high in a tree on the upper edge of our upper field.

  • Money, media and medical care
    Wednesday, November 15, 2017 4:32 PM
    The problems with the marketing penetration of drug companies and insurers go beyond simple unseemliness. At the patient care level, when insurance companies demand authorizations prior to agreeing to pay for treatment, they are dictating what care we receive. What good is health insurance if the treatments your physician recommends are not covered?
