There is an endless array of outside farm chores, all queued up, patiently waiting for my attention. It is that time of year when sitting with my feet up, warmed by the woodstove, has become a wistful dream. I could, and quite likely should, head down to the pasture and brush the little horses.

  • Public health priorities
    Thursday, April 22, 2021 7:00 AM
    Diabetic shoes, if you are on Medicare, require a prescription that can only be written by a doctor. I recently cosponsored the Promoting Access to Diabetic Shoes Act, which Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio introduced in March, to address this problem. This bipartisan bill would give physician assistants and nurse practitioners the ability to certify a patient’s need for these shoes, not just doctors.

  • Packing the court strikes out independent judiciary
    Wednesday, April 21, 2021 10:08 AM
    Chief Justice John Roberts recognized the importance of impartiality in his confirmation hearings in 2005. He said, “Judges and justices are servants of the law, not the other way around. Judges are like umpires.”

  • Sermon for the Fourth Sunday of Easter, John 10:11-18
    Wednesday, April 21, 2021 9:48 AM
    From the cross, Jesus looked down at Satan. It’s as if Jesus was telling the devil. “You’re nothing. You have no power over Me. I died freely for my people. I planned this all along. Obey My power. Now go away. You bother Me.”

  • 'Re-imagining' mice and men
    Wednesday, April 21, 2021 7:21 AM
    Who would have imagined that the media-government complex would silence the reasoned opinions of renowned epidemiologists, virologists and clinicians who raised questions about the response to COVID-19? Who would have imagined that "1984" would cease being fiction?

    Of the $3.4 million from OHCA, $365,000 went to Generation Now, a dark money spender that pleaded guilty earlier this year to its alleged role in a pay-for-play political scheme. Federal prosecutors accused then-House Speaker Larry Householder of secretly operating Generation Now to field nearly $61 million from FirstEnergy Corp. He then allegedly spent it to engineer passage of House Bill 6, a lucrative package of energy legislation including a nuclear plant bailout worth $1.3 billion to FirstEnergy.

  • Biden's overreaching budget outline
    Tuesday, April 20, 2021 8:46 AM
    President Biden has released his discretionary spending outline for fiscal year 2022 – also known as a “skinny budget.” Unfortunately, instead of addressing issues facing Americans right now, what was instead laid out consisted of a series of progressive wish list items and disturbing cuts in our national defense.

  • How did we get here? Part 8
    Monday, April 19, 2021 6:59 AM
    We are approaching, but not quite at, the middle of my list of people who shaped our modern world. Up through John Harrison – our subject last week – you might have thought of these people as living in very olden times. I think the tone will begin to change now, as we start talking about people of what I would consider more modern times.

  • When redbuds and dogwoods come together
    Sunday, April 18, 2021 12:00 PM
    For the last half-century, give or take, I've had the southern Ohio pleasure of watching the change of seasons. By the calendar, each year begins with winter's hangover from the previous year. The coldest season soon gives way to spring, which passes the seasonal baton to summer, which, much to my chagrin, seems to surrender far too soon to autumn, which similarly throws up a white flag to winter in late December. And so it goes. Year after year. Season after season.

  • Infrastructure – then and now
    Saturday, April 17, 2021 7:56 AM
    By streamlining the process and forcing government agencies to make determinations in a timely manner, taxpayer dollars will go to repairing roads, building bridges and maintaining our waterways. That’s what most of think of when we hear “infrastructure” and that’s what Americans expect their tax dollars to produce.
