The fact that Trump – after internal pressure – was more forceful on Monday than on Saturday may prove to be a good thing and a learning moment. Let's hope there's not a next time for him to have to draw on this type of experience. And to the law-breaking protesters on either side, one can't help but wonder: When was the last time you actually put in a 60-hour work week or a 40-hour work week or even a 20-hour work week? Try it sometime. You'll be a lot less energetic about causing public and private property damage, making idiotic signs and even more idiotic rhymes – and trying to kill one another.

    The passing of legendary Coach Ara Parseghian this week was yet another grim reminder that I’m not getting any younger. Someone asked me why we have a story and an obituary on Coach Parseghian in The Highland County Press. That’s a fair question.

    After all this time and after all the sordid overlapping affairs of public business in the city of Hillsboro and the county of Highland between Bob Lambert and Drew Hastings and funded by the taxpayers, the only remaining question is this: How much is enough?

    This past weekend, I spent some time being envious of the owners of these cars and tractors. From the old Ford tractors – similar to ones I’m used to – with their handy 3-point hitches, to the old Farmalls, Internationals and green-paint models, it occurred to me that a farmer or land owner could actually work on these tractors, himself, without calling a dealership or mechanic who specializes in tractor repairs.

    While I typically do not take requests, it’s always interesting when friends email other perspectives. This week, Craig Myers from Jacksonville, Fla. and Barb Cole from Hillsboro shared a couple of editorials that I found of interest. Maybe you will, too. Just for fun, maybe you can guess which column was shared by whom.

  • City sidewalks, city ‘considerations,’ mostly lip service
    Friday, July 7, 2017 7:05 PM
    Hillsboro City Council members Lee Koogler, Dick Donley, Bill Alexander, Justin Harsha, Rebecca Wilkin, Claudia Klein, Ann Morris and Tracy Aranyos will be hearing two appeals in regard to another dubious city sidewalk replacement project in the 100 block of South High Street (west side) at the July 10 council meeting.

    While we still don’t hear much in the way of political clamoring from the Rob Portmans, et al., of the world for new livers for alcoholics or new lungs for cigarette smokers, we do hear a constant din of inequity related to the “opioid/opiate/opium crisis.” One thing is certain, though: If there’s $51 billion in the money pit, politicians and assorted moneychangers will be diving in. All in the name of humanity. For now.

    Where in Hades is Petroleum Nasby when I need him? If I could employ just one self-writing columnist in my stead, it would be Honest Abe Lincoln’s favorite Ohio scribe, good ol’ Petroleum V. Nasby. (Not to be confused with Kerosene A. Nasty, of course.)

    I think Congressman Brad Wenstrup has, in fact, made a difference. Is he now just going from one election to the next? At this point, I would offer a guarded no. Time will tell. However, my gut instincts tell me he’s still the best choice for Ohio’s Second Congressional District. He’s earned another term in Congress. Thank you for your service on many fronts, Col. Wenstrup.
