For once, Clinton County Republican and former Ohio House talker Cliff Rosenberger deserves some credit. His sudden resignation amid a reported FBI probe has effectively brought state government to a temporary standstill. Nothing wrong with that.

    Colin (WC class of 2018, magna cum laude) joins his sisters, Caitlin (WC class of 2009, summa cum laude) and Meghan (WC class of 2010, magna cum laude) as a graduate of Wilmington College. Pam and I are understandably appreciative of all that Wilmington College has done for our children. On a personal note, I hope that our children are similarly appreciative of their first schoolteacher. (They all had the same one. Since they began this process with home-schooling, their mother also was their teacher. She prepared them very well. They owe all thanks to Pam.)

    President Richard Nixon had used his executive authority to prevent the New York Times from publishing top-secret documents pertaining to U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War. In a 6-3 decision, the High Court ruled that the president’s attempt to prevent the publication was a violation of the First Amendment. By the way, it’s first for good reason. And the Founders had incredible foresight, didn’t they?

    After returning from a week’s vacation, I opened my email to find 200-300 messages, a great number of which were related to politics in general and the May 8 primary election in particular. One individual sent a copy of the Secretary of State’s website on campaign financial statements. The reference was to the Ohio House 90th District primary and included a snapshot of my $200 donation to Adams County Commissioner Brian Baldridge. Unlike $10,000 (or more) donations, $200 doesn’t get any favors. And I would NOT accept one, anyway.

    One of the more interesting financial searches is this: Select your favorite – or least favorite – member of Congress, then compare the member’s first disclosure report with his or her most recent disclosure. Unless someone went through a costly divorce or some other litigation, it’s a safe bet that the most recent financial disclosure will more than double in pages from the initial year in office.

    "This whole political process is not that complicated. All it takes is having two sides who trust each other and who have the guts to get the big-money lobbyists completely out of the equation. Remove those … (think donkey and aperture in a compound word) from the process and there's no reason that both sides can't give a little and settle this." – Bill Horne

  • Political mailer shows devious side of politics

    The next check I’m writing will be to Brian Baldridge, not only because he is an honorable man, but also because this particular tactic in politics is particularly annoying. Cleveland political action committees have no clue about southern Ohio’s 90th House District. They also have no place here. My family will be voting for Brian Baldridge in the May 8 primary.

  • George Washington had more than 50 dogs (but not in Hillsboro)

    One of my favorite U.S. presidents – for many reasons – is George Washington. Unlike today’s wannabe-statesmen, Washington knew the difference between a political swamp and a lobbyist hot tub. By the way, the Father of our Country also loved dogs. No kidding.

    The 46th annual Ernie Blankenship Radio-Telethon, hosted by the Hillsboro and Greenfield Rotary Clubs on Wednesday, March 28, raised close to $100,000 for the Highland County Society for Children and Adults, bringing the 46-year total to an incredible $3.6 million. Think about that for a moment. For almost half a century, this telethon – with its humble beginnings – has averaged $78,261 each year in donations from the community. Give yourself a pat on the back. You deserve it.

  • UPDATED: So long, Armintrout, Wilkin, Hastings building; city auditor cancels purchase order on mayor's property
    Tuesday, March 27, 2018 6:44 PM
    The city auditor canceled the $33,100 purchase order for the mayor’s property on March 26 and informed The Highland County Press on March 27, following a request from the newspaper. To his credit, Lewis initially questioned the ethics related to a sitting mayor taking advantage of public funds for his personal property.
