This past weekend provided one of the more peculiar events since the day back in the summer of 2009 when I was debating about buying The Highland County Press from previous owner William Latham. My family and I were attending a Cincinnati Reds game and the stadium scoreboard message was “Happy Birthday, William Latham.” I saw it first. I nudged Pam and pointed toward the centerfield digital scoreboard. She saw it, too. Then, in a moment, it was gone. That was our “Field of Dreams” message along the lines of former Major Leaguer Moonlight Graham. The peculiarities have not stopped since.

    Since all of us are sinners in varying degrees, it’s more politically expedient to practice from the Gospel of Matthew than the Book of Proverbs. This is reminiscent of Al Gore’s "settled science" on global warming. But as H.L. Mencken noted, “It is not what one believes about religion, but what one forgets about it.”

    As the nation celebrates its 242nd birthday, and as the city of Hillsboro celebrates its annual Festival of the Bells, there is cause for just a bit more celebration this week. On July 3, Hillsboro City Council member and council president pro tempore Justin Harsha informed me of his decision to run for mayor of Hillsboro in 2019.

    From all indications, the 30 or so elected officials of the Highland County Republican Party Central Committee will have what ought to be a rather arduous task in naming a replacement for former Highland County Board of Commissioners president Shane Wilkin. But are they rushing the process? Or is there a predetermined outcome?

    Walter Brennan also recorded a few popular songs, including the classic “Old Rivers" about an aging farmer and his mule. This was released in 1962. For an Ohio and a Ted Williams connection, on the flip side of the forty-five RPM was “The Epic Ride of John H. Glenn.” Glenn was in Williams’ flight squadron during the Forgotten War in Korea and the two remained lifelong friends in spite of any political differences.

    On his final day as a Highland County commissioner, new State Rep. Shane Wilkin thanked the newspapers for providing an important service to the community. He did not thank any television networks. He did not thank any radio stations. He did not thank social media or the internet. He thanked NEWSPAPERS and their ability to inform the community.

    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.
