An interesting wordsmith from Travis County, Texas once noted that any day when his gratitude exceeds his expectations is a good day. I like that outlook on life. Being thankful is a good thing. Showing appreciation and returning acts of kindness are also good things.

    This week’s column was all set to be about my next vacation to the Frying Pan Tower Bed and Breakfast. But then, out of nowhere, John Levo emailed me about the former Hillsboro Jaycees organization.

    Today, I had the option of: A: Covering what turned out to be a 10-minute meeting of the Highland County Board of Commissioners (Note: It probably would have been less than five minutes if they had continued with those ridiculous and unnecessary Monday morning meetings); or B: Covering what was sure to be a 10-minute hearing before Hillsboro Municipal Court Judge David H. McKenna as he presided over a fourth review in a civil case filed by the city of Hillsboro against J. Steven Fettro, et. al. As a friend told me recently, “Choose wisely, Grasshopper. Choose wisely.” Indeed, that is sage advice.

    The Greenfield community lost one of its finest this month when Charles “Charley” Stevens passed away Saturday, Aug. 24 after a courageous battle with cancer.

    The challenge to State Rep. Wilkin and State Sen. Peterson is this: Instead of HB 6 bailouts to a company already sufficiently greased to own naming rights to an NFL stadium, why don’t you introduce legislation that would be immeasurably helpful to the divided Highland County Board of Elections, the mute representative from LaRose’s office who sat through the hearing, the county prosecutor, and everyone else, and do this: Introduce legislation to amend ORC 733.02 to read identical to ORC 733.24 – “Mayor of village – The mayor of a village shall be elected for a term of four years, commencing on the first day of January next after his election. He shall be an elector of the village and shall have resided in the village for at least one year immediately preceding his election.”

    This week, The Highland County Press has the dual celebration of its 20th year in Hillsboro and its 10-year anniversary with our current ownership. From our most humble beginnings at 113 West Main Street – ironically, just a building or two away from today’s ongoing “mess,” as Hillsboro Municipal Court Judge David H. McKenna calls it – The Highland County Press has continued to grow following our move to 128 South High Street.

    The Highland County Board of Elections will be holding a challenge hearing regarding the residency of Hillsboro mayoral write-in candidate Antony Weissmann on Thursday, Aug. 22 at 9 a.m. in the board office. During the hearing, the right to enter into executive session may be exercised. The public is welcome to attend.

    Will there be a contested race for Hillsboro’s Third Ward city council seat or not? That appears to be the political question du jour – “du jour,” of course, being a fancy French term meaning “Of the Day.” No kidding.

    According to this week’s mail from the U.S. Postal Service, I have been selected to represent voters in Ohio’s Second Congressional District. The envelope was stamped in all caps: DO NOT DESTROY OFFICIAL DOCUMENT. That’s all well and good; and I’ll do my level best to represent Second District voters. I’d be pretty good at it, too.

    First and foremost, let me say that I have missed Harriet’s frequent emails and online comments for some time now due to her own health reasons. For those of you who did not have the pleasure of knowing Harriet, let me say that she was THE maverick of all political mavericks in Highland County politics over the past half-century. A more independent-minded public servant we likely have not seen. Nor will we.
