Some of my go-to newspaper websites are in places I’ve enjoyed visiting, like Sheridan, Wyo., for instance. After arriving in Sheridan some three decades ago in cowboy boots, a flannel shirt and Levi’s, I was asked by a few locals if I was in town as part of the big rodeo. I wasn’t. But the timing was funny, since almost every other out-of-towner was dressed like me – and there for the rodeo – the annual Sheridan-WYO-Rodeo that began in 1931.

    "During World War II, American soldiers from every city and walk of life rolled through North Platte on troop trains en route to their ultimate destinations in Europe and the Pacific. This small town, wanting to offer the servicemen warmth and support, transformed its modest railroad depot into the North Platte Canteen. Every day of the year, every day of the war, the Canteen – staffed and funded entirely by local volunteers – was open from 5 a.m. until the last troop train of the day pulled away after midnight."

    Whether city voters – and taxpayers – realize it or not, Lee Koogler is one of the few remaining voices of reason in city government. I’ll include City Auditor Gary Lewis and three other honorable members of council (I’m sure they’re better off not being named here) in that observation. Former Hillsboro Mayor Betty Bishop warned us five years ago that this day was coming. But no one listened. When will you?

    Fast-forward to 2018 and we all know the answer as to whom brought us to this unfortunate predicament. And now it’s time to pay the Paint Creek fiddler.

    Randy Mustard has served Paint Township, Highland District Hospital and his community with a strong, yet humble, work ethic. He deserves voters’ support for county commissioner.

    I’ve written this before, but it’s worth repeating. Roughly 20 years ago, Adams County Prosecutor David Kelley was in my office at The People’s Defender in West Union. A customer came in and asked him “As prosecutor, who’s your boss?” David replied: “The 29,000 people of Adams County.” That’s how all public officials should view their positions. You are not rulers. You work for the people – or at least that’s the theory. We boss you. You do not boss us. Period.

    Does the Don John Trump administration even comprehend that Rocky Fork Lake State Park and Highland County are regularly opined to be “Trump Country?” Doesn’t Don John care? Or is the POTUS simply too busy embracing and loving an evil North Korean dictator to worry about Highland County? By the way, one must wonder how the Ohio family of Otto Warmbier feels about the Trump/Kim love affair.

    “In this country, the PC culture is continuing to fuel conflict where none should exist and in places where common sense prevails,” Mr. McBride told the DDN. “As a person of Irish heritage and with a name of Patrick McBride, I could take offense of Notre Dame’s mascot, the ‘Fighting Irish.’ I don’t, because I have better things to do with my time.” Leave it to an Irish Mick (can this Irishman call another Irishman a “Mick?”) to make sense of all this nonsense. Surely, all school boards, administrators and faculty have far more important issues than whether the Warriors should be called the non-Warriors.

    From a personal perspective, Dave Hilliard and Stew Gardner are a great team. They may be at their best in the fourth quarter of an already-delayed game when penalty flags outnumber players. And leave it to Dave to make observations like this one when they announced the Reds’ score against the Miami Marlins, and Dave noted: “I bet there aren’t more than 10 people at that game.”

    After all the public meetings and proverbial sidebars, executive sessions and political arm-twistings, here we are almost a year later, and some on city council are still thinking of joining the PC district – and with confirmation of eliminating the additional city income tax. That is sheer audacity. I’ll give you that much. The citizens and taxpayers of Hillsboro need to make their voices heard. Many of you, admirably, did so last November. You can send another message on Nov. 6 to distance our community from the king and his court.
