While Timken and Vance are trying to convince Ohio voters that they are rock-solid, pro-Trump conservatives, there's a certain congressman who has more claim to the Trump base. That would be U.S. Rep. Mike Turner, who used to represent Highland County in the old Third District, after easily defeating Roy Brown (yes, the former newspaper exec, whose company went into bankruptcy a decade or so ago) in the GOP primary and Rick Carne in the 2002 general election. Turner could win the Senate race next year. In fact, if he enters, he most likely will win.

    A friend of mine stopped by The Highland County Press office on Monday, July 12. He brought a packet of copies of "documentation" seeming to confirm that he had won $2.5 million in an international lottery for which he'd never purchased a ticket. When he showed me the letters, I immediately told him he'd been scammed. The fact that he was, in fact, scammed truly surprised me. I wouldn't have thought anyone could have taken advantage of this tough and stubborn hombre.

    I think those publicly denouncing Neil Clark's book most likely have employed their respective attorneys to comb through it, page by page. They're reading it – at least in my opinion. I have not read Clark's book. But I will soon. I ordered a copy on Amazon this week. It's tough to imagine that Neil Clark's final words – with his knowledge that these were indeed his final words – would be anything less than truthful to the best of his memory.

    The 56 Declaration of Independence signers in July 1776 came from various walks of life. Most were considered well-educated for the time. They 56 included lawyers, store merchants, farmers, teachers, one surveyor (Abraham Clark) and even one poor soul who was a printer (Ben Franklin).

    Knowing a long drive south to the Gulf of Mexico was on my evening itinerary, I thought, what the heck, I'll order a nice meal. After placing our respective orders, the lovely waitress at the Saltine Hogshead returned with portions of those respective orders. She then informed us that "We're out of gravy. We're also out of biscuits – and cornbread. Not to mention sweet potato casserole." For an old Ridgerunner like me, there's just something not quite right when you have to choke down mashed potatoes and chicken fried cube steak – sans gravy.

    Hillsboro and Highland County have lost two more icons in the community in recent days. As it is with so many of life's inevitables, these losses are reminders of how precious our own time is, but also how much others have contributed to our respective memories. Maybe some even lended a helping hand to us somewhere along the journey. These men did.

    An interesting telephone call this week resulted in a new columnist for The Highland County Press. Dr. Andy Bowman and his wife, Renie, made their HCP debut with "Sandlot optimism," an uplifting column about baseball – and life. When we spoke on June 1, Dr. Bowman volunteered that he doesn't write about "COVID-19, religion or politics." He had me at COVID-19.

    I hope all of us appreciate what men and women like Donald Stratton have given and sacrificed for this country. For its citizens. For everyone. Let’s try to live up to their standards as one nation under God.

    Last week, DeWine unveiled a lottery system to encourage more people to get COVID-19 vaccines. He is offering – not his cash, of course – a weekly $1 million payout, plus college scholarships in a lame effort to make everyone get vaccinated. How about that?

    Citizens' participation and engagement in their own government are perhaps the greatest ammunition against secrecy. One way to do that is for everyday people to take up the cause. Otherwise, in the words of Thomas Jefferson, we get the government we deserve. On May 4, citizens did take up the cause. That's encouraging. But let's not forget the fact that public officials and the local media have tried to inform and enlighten along the way.
