There’s an old saying on the college football coaches speakers’ circuit that no one should speak after dinner – or after legendary Coach Lou Holtz. Coach Holtz was always a tough act to follow. At the 38th annual Highland County Women’s Hall of Fame induction ceremony Aug. 14 at Southern State Community College, 2018 inductee and Germany native Luise Curtis was a very, very tough act to follow.

    "The boyhood life of Col. Barrere was similar to that of other boys of those pioneer days. He received his education in the common schools and finished at the Hillsboro Academy under the instruction of Prof. Isaac Sams. When a young man, he came to Hillsboro to live, clerking for a time in the store of the late James W. Patterson and later being employed in the bank of which his uncle, Benjamin Barrere, was president."

    For a country that allows a city such as Chicago to record more than 70 shootings in a weekend without one arrest is indeed spiritually broken. For a country that allows a congressional district in Ohio to have a multitude of voters on its rolls whose age is above 116 years is clearly broken. For a great city, such as New York, to allow safety on the streets and in the subways to degenerate to a level that is significantly impacting tourism is clearly broken.

    Given Highland County’s current political landscape, one thing is certain: Randy Mustard will either need Republican cross-over voters in order to win (much like Highland County Sheriff Donnie Barrera received cross-over support from many Democrats en route to his impressive, county-leading vote total of 14,017 less than two years ago) or Randy will need a number of Republican voters to skip over their central committee’s chosen candidate on the Nov. 6 ballot. The Democratic Party has a solid candidate for county commissioner on Nov. 6 in Randy Mustard.

  • Pay attention this election season

    I’ve been reading and seeing some of the news stories for a few weeks but I haven’t paid as close attention as perhaps I should. There seems to be a resurgent theme that has been simmering for some time, not just the past few months. The theme is one that isn’t very appealing or productive.

    In their tax giveaway to corporations last year, Republicans in Congress gave companies new tax incentives to close auto plants here in the U.S. and ship those jobs to Mexico or other foreign countries.

    We all aspire to diligence. It is part of our nature to appreciate it, even if we do not always make it our practice. Noah Webster notes in his 1828 American Dictionary that diligence is “steady in application to business; constant in effort or exertion to accomplish what is undertaken; attentive; not idle or negligent; prosecuted with care.”

    Immigration policies should serve the interests of the American people and of the nation—they should not be viewed as acts of charity to the world. Putting America first is a rational goal. It is the essence of sovereignty. And the sovereign nation-state is the only home of citizenship—as it is the only home of constitutional government.

    Keith Faber continues to mislead Ohio voters and the media about his long history of abetting Ohio’s for-profit charter school scam – the biggest political scandal in state history – which has bilked at least $80 million from Ohio taxpayers.

    This Putnam County Sentinel article (https://putnamsentinel.com/MobileContent/News/Local-News/Article/County-schools-bilked-by-ECOT/1/1/28254) is the kind of reporting that should be replicated in newspapers throughout the state. School officials should be in contact with the media to report the loss of funds to charters.
