The Highland County Press enjoyed recent visits from two newcomers to the southern Ohio political scene. This past week, Highland County commissioner candidate John D. Knauff of Carmel and Ohio House of Representatives candidate Beth Ellis talked about their reasons for running and respective qualifications.

    By resigning on Dec. 10, did former commission clerk Rhonda Smalley think the matter would simply go away, or were there implications that it might?

    Groundhogs used to be considered target practice in some rural parts of the country. They're almost always in season in Ohio, too. Maybe the fine folks in Punxsutawney, Pa. haven’t heard. Six more weeks of winter, my Ruger Redhawk.

    After many years of poor oversight from the Ohio Republican majority (several of whom were arguably bought-and-paid-for pols) and hundreds of millions of taxpayers’ dollars, the academic boondoggle known as ECOT appears to be meeting its demise. More than any one person, taxpayers can thank William Phillis.

    Sen. Portman’s bipartisan End Government Shutdowns Act would create an automatic continuing resolution for any regular appropriations bill not completed by the Oct. 1 deadline. As noted, after the first 120 days, CR funding would be reduced by 1 percent and would be reduced by 1 percent again every 90 days thereafter until Congress does its job and completes the annual appropriations process. Sadly, the bill makes too much sense to pass.

    Politics is more about the special pleading of selfish interests than anything else. (That’s another reason that gridlock in the Swamp is not always a bad thing.) All one has to do is follow the money. The U.S. has the best politicians money can buy, most of whom were born on third base and thought they hit a triple.

    For all his accomplishments, Gale Sayers does not put himself first. Certainly not before God. And not before his family and friends. In other words, “In humility, value others above yourselves.” – Philippians 2:3. That’s good advice. And we could use a few more Gale Sayerses and Tim Browns in today’s National Football League.

    Believe it or not, it’s that time of year again, folks. Back by popular demand is the obligatory New Year’s Predictions column. And no ILI (Influenza-Like Illness) is going to stand in my way, either. Besides, as the genuine ol’ ball coach Lou Holtz likes to say: “Don’t talk about your problems. Ten percent of the people don’t care, and the other 90 percent are glad you got ’em.”

    For anyone born in Baltimore, this “pattern of public service” brings to mind former Vice President Spiro T. Agnew. Good ol’ Theodore, as governor of Maryland, realized that Cash is King. Granted, he was forced to resign as Nixon’s VP because of corruption charges that stemmed from his time as governor. Still, one ought to expect one’s potentially corrupt public officials to take some reasonable measures to avoid getting caught. Cash is good. Checks are not.

    If I had to choose between fire and the internet, I’d choose fire. (Yes, I know. Feel free to insert your “get used to the heat” jokes any time.) As Grog, the first caveman, realized when he accidentally dropped a big rock onto a smaller rock at just the proper angle, thereby sending a small spark that ignited his woolly mammoth rug, “Fire Good.”
