As my college football Coach Frank Broyles repeatedly told my Razorback teammates and me, there are two types of people in this world: givers and takers. Live your life as a giver, not a taker.

  • Constitution better than alternatives
    Thursday, May 25, 2017 7:23 PM
    We all talk about our wish for change and the need for a good house-cleaning within our political ranks. I concur with this. But, we still go to the voting booth and only look at the “R” or “D” next to the name and do not ask ourselves the deeper questions.

  • Will the Trump administration overdose on authoritarianism?
    Thursday, May 25, 2017 11:41 AM
    The war on drugs is a war on the Constitution as well. The Constitution does not give the federal government authority to regulate, much less ban, drugs. People who doubt this should ask themselves why it was necessary to amend the Constitution to allow the federal government to criminalize drinking alcohol but not necessary to amend the Constitution to criminalize drug use.

    I feel as though the sound of the falling rain is a soothing backdrop to my thoughts, sometimes picking up in intensity, other times slacking off to gentle patter. It occurs to me that all of the creek creatures, Greg and I included, have slowed our pace and adapted to the wet day outside.

  • The Russians are coming!
    Wednesday, May 24, 2017 2:29 PM
    The media is obsessed with allegations of interference in the presidential election of 2016. There were two candidates. One promised to make America great again, to rebuild the military, to bring back our industry, and to make us energy independent. The other promised more of the same, only worse.

    Ladies and gentlemen, as I sit on the porch of the Mother Thompson Home, chatting with the daughter of early temperance crusader Eliza Jane Trimble Thompson, I talk with her about the historic edifice.

  • Portman comments on White House budget
    Tuesday, May 23, 2017 2:06 PM
    “I was also pleased to see that the budget request proposes an increase in funding for the cleanup work at the former uranium enrichment plant in Portsmouth (Piketon). This request would ensure there are no layoffs and that cleanup of the site stays on track."

  • A snapshot of Ohio’s state transportation budget
    Tuesday, May 23, 2017 11:20 AM
    One of the most primary and necessary roles of the government is to fund our infrastructure – the vast system of roads, highways, and bridges that make up our country. The creation of these thoroughfares is at the discretion of the government for the public’s use, and therefore, it is the government’s responsibility to ensure they are properly maintained.

  • The Left’s war on free speech
    Monday, May 22, 2017 8:23 AM
    Our country is best when it is engaging in vigorous debate. The Framers of the Constitution envisioned a multiplicity of interests that would argue their way to a common good. We succeed with more voices, not fewer, and we should have enough confidence in our arguments to hear out our opponents.

    Surely, the Republican-controlled Ohio government has some respect for the First Amendment. If not, the thin-skinned leaders of the Free Rent Party – not to be confused with the Free Soil Party – ought to find real work instead of trying to supersede the U.S. Constitution. But then again, we must remember the words of former Columbus newspaperman Oscar Ameringer who said, “Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other.”
