The first meeting of Highland Lodge No. 38 was held in Hillsboro on March 3, 1817. Yes, that was more than 200 years ago – the lodge received its dispensation in the 1817, but didn’t receive its charter until 1819, so it was decided at the state level that this year, 2019, would be the year the lodge would celebrate its bicentennial with a Reconsecration Ceremony by the Grand Lodge of Ohio.

  • Is Trump really about to attack Venezuela?
    Wednesday, March 20, 2019 11:03 AM
    So is President Trump about to attack Venezuela? At a recent U.S. House hearing, one of the expert witnesses testified that such an invasion would require between 100,000 and 150,000 U.S. troops, going up against maybe three times that number of Venezuelan troops in a country twice the size of Iraq. With a lot of jungle. All for a “prize” that has nothing to do with U.S. security.

    If a roller rink were to open in Hillsboro at the old Kmart, I really believe it would benefit our town. It would bring in more money, it would create jobs, it would bring in more people into our town, and it would help keep kids off the streets and would give them a place to hang out. It would also benefit the many families within our county as a safe place to take their children for some family fun.

    If we want hard work to pay off, we have to get the cost of college under control.

    At first pass, this commercial brings me back to my pre-teen years and my pre-teen friends. Hmmm, we might think. How about we fill the old box with something from the neighbor’s cow pasture? Let them analyze that scat. Or maybe one of the family dogs had too many leftovers. No good can come from that. Just pay postage and handling. And don’t forget to tip your UPS driver – with a can of Lysol. By the way, my last health-care provider was John Fuller. I trusted him more than anyone.

  • National emergency declaration: A primer
    Monday, March 18, 2019 9:39 AM
    The administration declared a national emergency so it could use additional tools to strengthen border security. The ability to declare a national emergency was granted to the executive branch via the National Emergencies Act in 1976. Since then, 59 national emergencies have been declared, 30 of which remain in effect. Under the National Emergency Act, the president is given wide latitude to determine which situations are emergencies, and I believe the president is on sound legal footing.

    According to revised seasonally-adjusted data released by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services the state added just 44,700 jobs last year. Jobs grew by just 0.8%. The nation gained 1.8 percent. The data revision essentially hit the reset button. The data were so substantially revised that 2018, which had been initially reported as one of the best years for job growth since 1994, is now tied with 2016 as the second worst since the end of the recession.
