Sometime in the fall of 1998 when I was the janitor – and publisher – of Adams County's People's Defender, I had a meeting with the late Charles (Chase, if you please) Prather, owner of Prather's IGA and the best damned fried chicken in the county. Chase gave me some elderly advice, based on his many years in business and his many years of knowing and understanding the human condition.

    Barring any further investigation or criminal charges, members of the community are owed three things: An approximate expense report from all taxpayer-funded agencies involved in this, a reimbursement of donated funds, and a sincere apology from whoever was involved in causing the so-called panic.

    House Bill 6 should go down in Ohio political history as about as feckless as the never-ending gerrymandering and musical chairs played every four (or eight) years in Columbus.

    Given the nonstop, 24/7 media coverage of the COVID-19 coronavirus, one major story has been largely dismissed amid all the handwashing and handwringing. That story is the absolute travesty of justice perpetrated against former national security adviser Gen. Michael T. Flynn. On a completely separate note, allow me to publicly thank singer, songwriter and entertainer Adley Stump for accurately summing up my sentiments with the incessant COVID-19 coverage.

    Miss Claudia (an Ohio State Fair 4-H champion, by the way) produced, narrated, starred in and submitted a wonderfully humorous video of her take on the Spanish-American War, a war between Spain and the United States in the Caribbean and the Philippines in 1898. She dedicated it to Mr. Sheets. Lord knows, I hope he has a sense of humor. I would encourage our friends and readers to take a break from COVID-19 and watch this humorous history lesson at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnPHkpqHkYA.

    The best thing for most of us to do is to respect what our politicians are saying while they enjoy their daily moments in the sun. But it is also important to keep at least one jaundiced eye wide open at all times.

    Through it all, though, we have a job to do, and we'll continue to do it to the best of our ability. We will keep you updated on breaking news about the virus, of course. But we'll also share heartwarming and uplifting stories about local volunteers who are putting others first. Like Kenley Juillerat, whose inspirational bookmark project has received an order all the way from Healdsburg, Calif. Like 4-H members and local educators who are giving of their time and resources to provide masks and face shields for those in need. Like local pastors R.D. Hottle and Fr. Mike Paraniuk, who shared their Easter messages with our readers this past week.

    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.
