To this day, if I am driving across the country midday and come upon a stock auction operation on the day they are having a sale, and, if I have just a bit of time, I stop. I’ll stop and have lunch and sit in on the auction for a bit. I tell my city-slicker friends the best and cheapest lunches you can find are church women’s auxiliaries serving at a stock sale. Great food, great prices. I have stopped at them all over the country.

  • What it would take to make me a Democrat
    Thursday, March 7, 2019 7:54 AM
    Democrats, and most of today's version of Republicans, are of the same ilk. Spend more, let us solve your problems. The parties are virtually indistinguishable.

  • The need to know
    Thursday, February 28, 2019 5:04 AM
    When one looks back in history, public education was established, not to train people for employment, but to train voters to be intelligent in a democratic society. Education has lost this purpose and, as mentioned earlier, today's voters' knowledge of critical issues is often nearly as ignorant as the fine citizens of old Salem, Massachusetts.

  • Is it better to give than to receive?
    Monday, February 18, 2019 10:03 AM
    Among the many things the federal government has taken from us, the joy of giving may just be the most serious.

  • Demeaning is mean
    Tuesday, January 29, 2019 7:35 AM
    Many in the press demean people today – just look at the headlines in some of the well-known newspapers or the stories on some of the news channels. Sadly, I have to confess there have been times when I have demeaned people, too. That's not good, and I hope I have matured enough through my walk with Jesus Christ to check myself when I am about to do this. The act of demeaning says more about the one doing the demeaning than it does about the target.

  • Not everyone is unhappy about the cold weather in Highland County
    Tuesday, January 22, 2019 1:58 PM
    However, I have some friends in Highland County who I am sure are very happy about the recent temperatures you have been experiencing. I heard from one of them around the first of the year who casually remarked they had run out of ice. For those of us who live with modern appliances, that would mean either filling the ice cube trays or checking on the water tubing that feeds the automatic ice maker. Not for these friends.

  • The comma key
    Friday, January 18, 2019 5:41 PM
    OK. Maybe it is my age, but I have my eyes checked routinely. What is with the comma key on my keyboard and the representation of the comma on my computer screen?

  • Danger ahead: Abrogation of the Monroe Doctrine
    Wednesday, January 9, 2019 3:36 PM
    While we wring our hands over some relatively mundane headlines at home, China and Russia are playing for keeps. This will be to our detriment if we don’t wake up.

  • For Highland County high school juniors and seniors
    Wednesday, January 2, 2019 7:40 AM
    Provisions of the Paperitalo Scholarship at Miami University state that, all else being equal, a qualifying student who graduated from a high school or was home schooled through high school in Highland County shall be given preference for this annual award.

  • Are these better times?
    Thursday, December 27, 2018 9:16 AM
    The Boy Scouts recently announced they may file for bankruptcy. The Weekly Standard, a conservative magazine founded by News Corporation, just printed its last issue. Are these related events? Perhaps in one way they are, that way being beyond the obvious one of financial problems.
