Here in southern Ohio, we are facing a skills gap, and it’s holding back our economy from reaching its full potential. I hear regularly from employers in logistics, transportation, manufacturing, health care and information technology that they have jobs available and no one to fill them. The JOBS Act will help to close that gap and make students at Southern State Community College in shorter-term technical programs eligible for federal Pell Grants.

  • Flight-sharing could transform air travel, but the government won’t let it take off
    Monday, August 19, 2019 9:17 AM
    Flight-sharing – when private, licensed pilots communicate with passengers to share flight expenses – has the potential to transform air travel in the United States by providing more travel options at lower prices to airports throughout the country. Yet even in the face of a federal law requiring the Federal Aviation Administration to issue guidance to the public on how flight-sharing can be safely and effectively conducted in the United States, the FAA has refused to act.

  • Words hold a great deal of power
    Saturday, August 17, 2019 9:47 AM
    Words are humans’ most powerful ability that separates us from other species. It’s unfortunate we are less careful or deliberate in what and how we wish to communicate.

    The truth is the best and the highest place to exist, in both this life and the next. We have all tried to avoid it one time or another and quickly stepped into the consequences.

    Greg and I still have many adventures and projects planned, but never in a million years could I have ever imagined such a perfect anniversary gift that I would so happily drive in the tractor parade.

    It is bad enough that we have to pay fees for participation in music and theatre programs. In the past 25 years, we have come to expect that such "extracurricular" activities cost money. But this "technology fee" and the accompanying "insurance" – this is for something that kids will supposedly need in class, every day. A Chromebook, which the school district has already paid for. A Chromebook, which my kids will not need at home. A Chromebook, the use of which will end up costing my family $612 – four times its worth.

  • We stand with Israel
    Friday, August 16, 2019 8:37 AM
    The United States has been a long-time friend and ally of the Jewish state of Israel. For decades, our country has rightly supported the nation of Israel as one of our greatest allies on the international stage. But in recent years, Israel has been subject to an increasing amount of unfair criticisms.

  • Taking out the trash
    Thursday, August 15, 2019 10:15 AM
    Monday evening, I called up a friend of mine to talk about a business matter. He was in the midst of taking out the trash at his girlfriend’s house. She lives in the Washington, D.C. suburb of Georgetown. He was grousing about the precision of can placement required by sanitation crews.

  • Economic growth from regulatory relief
    Thursday, August 15, 2019 9:56 AM
    Through a combination of issuing executive orders, utilizing the Congressional Review Act to overturn unnecessary regulations legislatively, enacting new laws focused on providing relief from onerous regulation and appointing pro-growth agency officials, deregulatory actions are creating more freedom for innovation and job growth.
