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.

  • They fought for us
    Tuesday, March 21, 2017 4:07 AM
    Veterans are remarkable for not seeking any special attention for what they have contributed to this country. Yet, they have a right to the best our nation can provide: to uncompromised care, excellence in hospital care, and benefits without strings. So here is what I want our veterans to know: just as you have fought for America, we will fight for you.

  • Kasich, Ohio lawmakers should job-shadow teachers
    Sunday, March 19, 2017 4:37 AM
    In his state-budget proposal, House Bill 49, Ohio Governor John Kasich is seeking to overhaul the state’s teacher-licensure program. Kasich’s proposal would require Ohio teachers to “complete an on-site work experience” with a local business or chamber of commerce to renew their teaching licenses. Effective Sept. 1, 2018, teachers would be required to complete “externships.” In other words, business job-shadowing. Really?

  • Three criteria for serious health reform
    Saturday, March 18, 2017 4:25 PM
    We must lower insurance premiums. Nothing matters more. The current House bill would not achieve this, because it doesn’t repeal all of ObamaCare’s insurance mandates. Of the few it addresses, the bill delays their repeal. We must abolish ObamaCare’s mandates immediately. Americans need relief from higher premiums and cannot wait until 2020 or beyond.

    Peter writes that it will be better for us if we will “sanctify the Lord God in your hearts … For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing” (1 Peter 3:15 and 17). David affirms in Psalm 63:3, “Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.” Are you and I able to agree with that?

  • Why Trump’s Syria 'surge' will fail
    Friday, March 17, 2017 10:09 AM
    President Trump’s escalation in Syria is doomed to failure. He is being drawn into a quagmire by the neocons that will destroy scores of lives, cost us a fortune, and may well ruin his presidency. He must de-escalate immediately before it is too late.
