For the past decade, I’ve seen Shane Wilkin on more Wednesday mornings than I care to – or probably can – remember. From my perspective – with absolutely no entangling alliances – Shane has been a hard-working county commissioner. As president of the Board of Commissioners since 2009, he has been forged in fiscal fire on many occasions.

    “There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one's safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to, he was sane and he had to.”

    Highland County Prosecutor Anneka Collins told me in 2012 that a spokesperson from the Ohio Ethics Commission said that "as long as there was a clause allowing the contract to be vacated upon the city joining the Paint Creek Joint EMS/Fire District there is no problem." Perhaps, that explains why the Resolution No. 18-30, “A resolution to join the Paint Creek Joint EMS/Fire District,” is up for its first reading on Monday, June 11.

    Cathy Griffith, executive director of the Southern Ohio Pregnancy Center in Hillsboro, said of Pamela: “She was a wonderful woman who loved her family and her community. Pam will be missed. My prayer for her family is that the Lord will surround you with His arms of comfort and wonderful memories of this special woman.” Pamela was, indeed, special.

    On Memorial Day, Judy McCray has often read “The Symbols for the Folds of the Flag” at the Highland County Courthouse ceremony. The first three folds are as follows: “The first fold of our flag is a symbol of life; the second fold is a symbol of our belief in eternal life; and the third fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veteran departing our ranks, and who gave a portion of his or her life for the defense of our country to attain peace throughout the world.” On Memorial Day 2018, let us not forget that third fold.

    For once, Clinton County Republican and former Ohio House talker Cliff Rosenberger deserves some credit. His sudden resignation amid a reported FBI probe has effectively brought state government to a temporary standstill. Nothing wrong with that.

    Colin (WC class of 2018, magna cum laude) joins his sisters, Caitlin (WC class of 2009, summa cum laude) and Meghan (WC class of 2010, magna cum laude) as a graduate of Wilmington College. Pam and I are understandably appreciative of all that Wilmington College has done for our children. On a personal note, I hope that our children are similarly appreciative of their first schoolteacher. (They all had the same one. Since they began this process with home-schooling, their mother also was their teacher. She prepared them very well. They owe all thanks to Pam.)

    President Richard Nixon had used his executive authority to prevent the New York Times from publishing top-secret documents pertaining to U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War. In a 6-3 decision, the High Court ruled that the president’s attempt to prevent the publication was a violation of the First Amendment. By the way, it’s first for good reason. And the Founders had incredible foresight, didn’t they?

    After returning from a week’s vacation, I opened my email to find 200-300 messages, a great number of which were related to politics in general and the May 8 primary election in particular. One individual sent a copy of the Secretary of State’s website on campaign financial statements. The reference was to the Ohio House 90th District primary and included a snapshot of my $200 donation to Adams County Commissioner Brian Baldridge. Unlike $10,000 (or more) donations, $200 doesn’t get any favors. And I would NOT accept one, anyway.

    One of the more interesting financial searches is this: Select your favorite – or least favorite – member of Congress, then compare the member’s first disclosure report with his or her most recent disclosure. Unless someone went through a costly divorce or some other litigation, it’s a safe bet that the most recent financial disclosure will more than double in pages from the initial year in office.
