I sit under my tent, contentedly watching, selling the occasional wine bottle wind-chime and giving away marbles to any children who happen along. It has so warmed my heart, and I am so pleased to report that I have learned today that children can range in age from being pushed by their parents in strollers to sporting canes and hearing aids.

    Everyone in Bainbridge at the Fall Festival of Leaves seemed to be enjoying the beautiful autumn weather while talking with their neighbors. That’s what communities are all about. Hillsboro used to be like that. And then two geriatric men – joined at the hip – showed up from California. Today, one of them is awaiting sentencing. Good riddance on that count. Maybe their local enablers are starting to wake up. Maybe. Hillsboro deserves better. The citizens and taxpayers surely deserve better.

    Then there was the time John Cooper and the OSU football team came over to Parke University Hotel pool. The older players had the freshmen players do a little skit and then tossed the rookies in the pool. Andy Katzenmoyer and David Boston were two of the freshmen who got tossed. That OSU team would go on to win the Rose Bowl. Other big names there that day were Orlando Pace, Joe Germaine, Luke Fickell and Mike Vrabel. Vrabel came to the pool and I had to blow my whistle at him for diving in the shallow end. Yep, a 5-foot-9, 160-pound kid studying journalism threatening to kick out a 6-foot-4, 260-pound All-American defensive lineman who went on to be a star player in the NFL and won three Super Bowl titles. Anyway, he stopped diving in the shallow end and didn’t break his neck on my watch.

    The Gulen charter network is capturing the minds of 60,000 students in 150 charters across the nation. The free trips to Turkey, campaign contributions and other perks from this foreign empire have blinded a lot of public officials to the intent of Gulen.

  • None of us can escape getting older

    Aging happens. I get that. I’m half a step slower. I pause for a moment, after I stand up to make sure I’m steady. I’m more conscious of foods that sit/don’t sit well. It takes a moment longer to flip through the mental rolodex. Aging also brings clarity. Aging can give us the freedom to be less rigid, less frightened. We have a history to draw upon to shine the light on the value of experience.

    Mark 9:50 encourages: “Salt is good, but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it?” Salt can also dissipate, and we are advised in this same verse: “Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.” Please pass the salt!

    As we proudly celebrate the legacy of our Navy, we are all reminded of the duty we share to support our service members, military families, and veterans.

  • What will future generations say?

    The Heritage Foundation’s 2018 Index of U.S. Military Strength found that U.S. military capabilities continued to stand still or erode as world threats proliferated during 2017, reporting: “The result is an increasingly dangerous world threatening a significantly weaker America.” We can’t afford to take these warnings lightly.

    So I have learned, and as I write, I can see four of the Osage fruits I brought back from the field. Even if they do not repel creek valley insects from entering our home, their scent beautifully fills the air, as our wind chimes sing, walnuts ricochet off the barn roof and Osage orange fruit crash to the ground all around.
