We have a presidential administration beset by internal problems, vacancies and Cabinet appointees struggling to perform effectively. This at the same time very few voices in Congress speak up for sustaining its role as a co-equal branch of government — let alone for congressional dynamism and policy leadership.
  • Partisanship, polarization among politicians and the people

  • A better farm bill for all Ohioans
    Saturday, June 23, 2018 4:37 AM
    It’s a pretty simple idea – why should Ohioans buy raspberries from California, when they could buy them from a farm in Knox or Clinton County? When we make it easier for Ohioans to buy food grown or raised in Ohio, everyone wins.

    America was founded upon the principles of Christian liberty. A primary reason that our forefathers added the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was to prevent tyrants in the government from forging the demand of a state church. Freedom of faith was woven into the fabric of America in order to enshrine truth into our citizens’ lives.

  • Holidays let us think about values
    Friday, June 22, 2018 12:50 PM
    Memorial Day has passed; July 4th is around the corner. Both are fitting occasions to think about the values and the idea of America, and all we used to hold dear.

  • Create your own health care 'system'
    Friday, June 22, 2018 12:23 PM
    Let’s face it. Many Americans have been duped into ignoring responsibility for their own health. With the drug companies’ relentless ads, prescription drugs have become the equivalent of “As Seen on TV” products.

  • Looking down on creation from atop the hay wagon
    Friday, June 22, 2018 11:19 AM
    The part about the baling of hay to me above all these wonderful sights was when the men had loaded a wagon full of hay, tossed a rope from the back to the front and tied it down so it would successfully make the trip from the hay field to the barn where it was to be stored. Once that load was secured, we would climb up to the top of the load which probably was four or more bales in height. Once on top, you could just sit there and look out over all the land around you as far as you could see.

    Ladies and gentlemen, George Washington Barrere (1770-1838) was a Highland County pioneer who settled in the New Market area in 1802. As we mentioned last week, Barrere was a state senator, landowner, businessman, postmaster, commissioner, surveyor, judge and soldier.

    In terms of scale, the infamous Tom Noe “Coingate” scandal in 2006 involved $50 million in unemployment insurance money (technically not taxpayer money). Even with this relatively conservative estimate, the ECOT scandal could be four times larger than Coingate – likely even more. Noe was given more than 20 years in prison for his scandal. Will this much larger, taxpayer funded scandal produce similar results?

    On his final day as a Highland County commissioner, new State Rep. Shane Wilkin thanked the newspapers for providing an important service to the community. He did not thank any television networks. He did not thank any radio stations. He did not thank social media or the internet. He thanked NEWSPAPERS and their ability to inform the community.

    Today it was amazingly hot at the creek. There was not even the slightest breath of air, and the parched ground actually felt hot under the soles of my shoes. I remembered back to the hot city sidewalks of my childhood.
