Given the city’s lack of acknowledgment of the May 8 records request, I doubt there will be a response to today’s request. In fact, unlike many of the recent building inspections and condemnations, I’m guessing there are no such records related to members of city council or the mayor’s administration. They are welcome to provide records to the contrary.

    No taxpaying citizen deserves to be called “stupid” by a mayor whose salary is paid by the taxpayers. In the private sector, try calling your boss “stupid” and see where it gets you. What passes for the Republican mayor of Hillsboro who calls citizens “stupid,” is very similar to Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” comment a few years ago. The GOP must be so proud. Stupid. Deplorable. Whatever. You work for us. You are paid by us. And the only thing you need to say to us is “thank you.”

    Imagine. Imagine one of these small towns and its powerful political majority supporting someone – with absolutely no ties to the community – who appoints others in his chain of command – with absolutely no ties to the given community – to various and sundry public bodies and that someone ends up in prison for doing unspeakable things to young boys. Imagine that.

    One of my former co-workers, Joanna Mahan, contacted me about recording an audio tribute to Pat. I initially declined, but for only two reasons: I have a face for radio and a voice for newsprint. But I may reconsider and let Jo record one of my heartfelt tributes to the Lofty Vox Populi (voice of the people).

    The basic purpose of the Fourth Amendment, which is enforceable against the states through the 14th, through its prohibition of "unreasonable" searches and seizures is to safeguard the privacy and security of individuals against arbitrary invasions by governmental officials. With certain carefully defined exceptions, an unconsented warrantless search of private property is "unreasonable." Thus, local property owners may want to decide whether to welcome a warrantless intrusion on their property.

    The recent passing of John Havlicek, a Martins Ferry, Ohio native and Hall of Famer in both NCAA and NBA basketball, brings not only a measure of sadness, but also some great memories of a true “team player.” In fact, Hondo was the epitome of a team player.

    More often than not, it is reasonable to believe that when a small-town politician receives $23,000 from three power-players on the same day – March 2, 2018 – that politician will follow his marching orders. As such, some Ohio Republicans appear ready to reconsider left-wing Congresswoman AOC’s Green New Deal. Get on board, already, C-Bus. As always, follow the money: https://www6.sos.state.oh.us/ords/f?p=CFDISCLOSURE:45:203331229730678::NO::P45_ENTITY_ID:14861.

    Let us begin this week’s offering with two quotes from two respected legal eagles in the city of hills. First, there are these words of wisdom from the office of Highland County Prosecutor Anneka Collins: “Those who labor within these halls seek only the truth.” Next, there is this gem from Highland County Judge Kevin L. Greer, as spoken at The Highland County Press office on April 9 and quoting President John Adams: “We are a nation of laws.”

    This evening, after teaching at West Union High School, my son, Colin, stopped by the Prather’s deli for one last order of their delicious fried chicken. Colin said he was told that Prather’s may have set a one-day record for fried chicken orders. I believe it. The ladies in the deli have always made great food, from breakfast to lunch to supper. I just hope they know how much we have appreciated them for all these years. I hope Chase Prather knows it, too.

    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.
