Just as Johnny Paycheck made the connection from Greenfield to Nashville, Dayne Puckett made the connection from Sinking Spring to Nashville. He knew the stars from the 1970s and '80s, including Charley Pride, Dolly Parton, Jerry Lee Lewis, Merle Haggard and many others.

    Aside from a moment or two in the country's history, men have held the POTUS office since 1789 when Commander in Chief of the Continental Army George Washington became the nation's first president. Maybe it's time for an all-female presidential ticket and Cabinet. Could they be any worse than the current hot mess in Washington, D.C.? Without further proprieties, let us consider the following for future leadership of the greatest nation on earth.

    As reported this week, several Democratic senators have spoken out against raising interest rates – less than one week before the midterm election – the horror. The Dems say this will put more Americans out of work and result in a painful recession. I thought the president's mouthpiece has insisted we are not in a recession. Why are top Democrats breaking from the team's talking points just before the general election?

    After writing roughly 2,000 columns in the past three-plus decades, I was asked this week if I am tapering off – somewhat – on the opinion front. Well, the short answers are yes – and no.

    With early voting already under way, allow me to somewhat belatedly endorse Ohio Issue 1 and Issue 2. These issues – in addition to races for Ohio governor, the U.S. Senate and several General Assembly and state office seats – are important for Ohio voters.

    In a most bizarre speech during a conference on hunger last week, President Joe Biden called out a deceased U.S. congresswoman for public recognition, addressing the lawmaker for applause as if she were alive and in attendance.

    This has been an incredibly emotional, roller coaster week for the students, families and staff of Whiteoak High School. In less than 48 hours, the Bright Local School District went from a celebration of outstanding academic achievement to a time of mourning for a young student's tragic death.

    Someone suggested we become "Whiskey on High," "Headlines and Moonshines," "Sports and Spirits" or "Brews & News." I'll drink to that last one. Welcome back to the future of 1970s uptown Hillsboro.

    The Highland County Press reported that Bill has served as county auditor since 1990. I told Bill this week that since I have been a newspaper editor in one form or another for the last 32 consecutive years, I should retire as well. But Bill corrected me and actually acknowledged that I am much, much younger than he is. Bill's public service began well prior to 1990. He was a schoolteacher beginning in 1969. If memory serves, he also worked in the public realm (today's Word of the Day is "realm," by the way) for Congressmen Bill Harsha and Bob McEwen. Thus, Bill has maybe parts of seven decades in public service. (Forgive me for pointing this out, Bill.)

    Major League Baseball is a bit contradictory in its reasoning – or lack thereof – for this change. On the one hand, MLB wants more offensive production, i.e., more hits and more runs. On the other hand, MLB insists fans – what's left of them – say the games are too long. If the stated goal of eliminating defensive shifts on certain hitters who have a tendency to hit the ball to a certain spot is to increase offensive production, wouldn't that make games even longer? Of course it would.
