If Hillsboro wants a DORA, that's fine. Just let us know your plan – and our cost – to comply with Ohio Revised Code 4301.82. And, consider this a public records request for the "many" business owners in favor. Seriously, there are not that "many" of us.

    It seems that even so-called sanctuary cities really are not all that. When push comes to shove and shove comes to actual arrival, these liberal mayors aren't as accommodating on their own turf as they are with the red earth of the Lone Star State. They don't think of Texas Hold 'Em as a poker game, but rather as a policy for making homes for millions of illegal immigrants who walk or wade across Biden's wide-open southern border.

    On Saturday morning after John's telephone call, I decided to drive my old Ford pickup truck from my house to his. We live maybe six or seven miles apart, and I hadn't driven the truck for a few weeks. I grabbed a few papers for the southernmost section of Pondlick Road and headed toward Crooked Road off S.R. 247 in Concord Township. I passed two of my former homes, then the former Fred Walker farm, then the former Guthrie residence, and came to a halt in what once was Jack Preston's driveway. The old pickup had had enough.

    In local politics, two political parties had recent summer picnics: The Highland County Republican Party and the Adams County Libertarian Party. I missed the former, but hosted the latter.

    This has been a busy month for a number of reasons. We've had two popular summer festivals on back-to-back weekends for the first time in recent memory. With Independence Day falling on a Monday, the Festival of the Bells in Hillsboro was held July 7-9. A week later, the Greene Countrie Towne Festival in Greenfield was July 14-17.

    I seriously doubt that most major corporations and woke municipalities are anywhere close to being carbon neutral. However, I am – and I've been carbon neutral for more than three decades.

    My personal memories of Concord Elementary School are always revisited with a smile and positive reflection. First, credit goes to Principal Loretta Dean for running a taught ship (pun on "taut ship" intended). Indirectly, Mrs. Dean taught me the definition of the word "rowdy."

    The 56 Declaration of Independence signers in July 1776 came from various walks of life. Most were considered well-educated for the time. They 56 included lawyers, store merchants, farmers, teachers, one surveyor (Abraham Clark) and even one poor soul who was a printer (Ben Franklin).

    To escape the conversation with Sandy, who doesn't understand the King's English as it pertains to pronouns, I walked over to what I thought was the jukebox. I had no idea how to work the machine, nor did I recognize a single song. There were no songs by Hank or Waylon or Willie or Cash or Jones or Haggard or even Kid Rock. What kind of a bar had this become?

    If there's one element of the senators' proposal in which reasonable minds should agree, it's this: Invest in programs to help institute safety measures in and around primary and secondary schools and provide self-defense training to school personnel. Seven years ago, the late Ted Downing as Bright Local Schools superintendent, announced added measures to assist in school safety. He supported staff participation in ALICE training. One more thing: the former superintendent and other responsible adults in the school system were armed. I know for a fact that Ted was. Self-defense instruction and preparation on the local levels are far more essential than overpaid politicians bloviating and pandering ad nauseam on the nightly news.
