Lawmakers would have done the small businesses owners a much better service by changing the mandate to restore full-time employment for any changes made between March 27 (when Trump signed the act) and April 26 and given them until Aug. 1 to fully restore employment. Unlike the bloated and incompetent federal government, small businesses across the nation had to take necessary steps to survive, beginning in mid-March.

    President Thomas Jefferson famously said: "The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter."

    The Baseball gods know. This pandemonium rests solely with the gods, who are crying heavenly tears because they miss Marty. They are not alone. We must call upon them to lift us from the corona pandemonium. The baseball season needs to begin. They've already taken the NCAA basketball tournament from us. They've taken Opening Day. They've closed schools, colleges, bars, restaurants, theaters, salons and others. We get it. I hope they don't force our own state rep to close his Muntz Street business. The horror.

    Earlier this week, Gov. DeWine closed local hair salons and barber shops. Our dear friend Lisa Leeth from across The HCP on South High Street put the best spin on the sad situation: "In a few weeks, everyone's going to know everyone's true hair color." On the bright side, I won't have any barbers asking me anymore why a chunk of my right ear is missing. (My answers vary, based on mood. When getting a haircut in Gulf Shores, Ala. a few months ago, I was asked if I had ear cancer. I replied: "What? You'll have to talk in my good ear, lady.")

    As the COVID-19 (coronavirus) has reached a number of Ohio communities – and may have reached Highland County – we need to remember that we are all in this together.

    On March 7, I was in line at a Community Markets (Great Scot) grocery store in Hillsboro. A young man in front of me was on his cell phone and showing people how many others have contributed to a "Go Fund Me" account set up for the Hillsboro student's family. I thought that was a very kind and generous way to use social media. Donations to the family may be made by visiting https://www.gofundme.com/search/us/hillsboro-oh-fundraising.

    After watching this debacle for a little more than an hour, two things were readily apparent: CBS lost control of the so-called debate less than 10 minutes into it, and not one of these empty-suit pols deserves any consideration for the presidency. If this is the best that the socialist, er, Democrat party, can do, it should simply concede and save future campaign donors from wasting their money.

    Yes, I am old-fashioned. Yes, I realize this issue has been debated on social media. But the rules of civility demand that it stops. Calmer heads must prevail. One final rule of civility is this: When you must give advice or criticism, consider the timing, whether it should be given in public or private, the manner and above all, be gentle.

    Giving a more protective status to a nuisance animal is most likely going to accomplish two things: A few more dollars in the ODNR coffers and a heckuva lot more of the protected nuisance animal.

    The thought occurred to me over the weekend: Does anyone remember the last time an Ohio high school sectional or district basketball tournament was held in Highland County? Do we have to go all the way back to the Class A, AA and AAA high school breakdowns?
