I'm glad the Reds convinced Marty to endure his "farewell tour" for the sake of Reds fans. We need that. We need to see the "We Love You, Marty" banners hanging in Great American Ball Park this summer. We need to know that we must cherish each Reds broadcast this season. We need to listen just a little closer. And we need to be thankful. Not every Major League city has a Marty Brennaman. Not even close. We have been spoiled. And we have been blessed. Thanks for 46 years, Marty. I wish I could add "and here's to many more."

    How about that. The same former governor just two years ago warned Ohio lawmakers that Ohio is “on the verge of a recession.” Meanwhile, he can ride off into the New Hampshire primary with 2020 vision, knowing that he left DeWine with a considerable “Rainy Day Fund,” Ohio counties and townships with considerable cuts in local government funding and the state of Ohio as home to the country’s worst oversight of charter schools. Cha-ching.

    Whether or not you grew up a Reds fan, John Erardi’s book is well worth your investment and time. Thank you, Mr. Erardi, for sharing this amazing story of the heart and soul of the Big Red Machine.

    After seeing votes by Republican majorities in the Ohio House and Senate last week to override a few of Kasich’s vetoes – particularly Senate Bill 296, in which Republicans sneaked in a nice pay hike for themselves and many of their supporters across Ohio’s 88 counties, I’m left thinking of the words of former Cincinnati Reds third baseman Chris Sabo after the 1990 World Series: “We've got the rings. We've got the money. We've got everything.”

    This just in: At this time, the James A. Garfield National Historic Site in Mentor, Ohio is closed. I repeat: At this time, the James A. Garfield National Historic Site in Mentor, Ohio is closed. Sorry, if that disrupts anyone’s holiday travel plans. Meanwhile, federal workers will get paid for doing nothing and the Swamp is anything but shut down.

    Anytime you can simply raise your own pay arbitrarily, why not do it (sarcasm)? And if you can pass legislation to ensure a decade of annual raise – all at taxpayers’ expense – why not do that (more sarcasm)? But you shouldn’t be campaigning as a conservative Republican once you choose this tax-and-spend philosophy. And you sure shouldn’t slip your raise into a bill for law enforcement and first responders. All of you knew what the job paid when you spent thousands of dollars campaigning for it. Cry me another Olentangy River, already. Maybe there’s room for more “idiots” in the Google search engine.

    In October 2016 – with several Republicans up for re-election from Highland County to Columbus to Washington, D.C. – the headline – as quoted from the meeting – was: “It’s a great day for Highland County.” On Dec. 5, 2018, the headline is borrowed from Gilda Radner “Never mind.”

    In a 1974 speech, the late Academy Award-winning actor John Wayne said this about the United States: “This is a good country, with good people in it. Good people don’t always agree. Maybe the best thing we do in this country is agree to disagree once in a while. (But) we’re shouting when we should be talking. We’re arguing when we should be conversing. We’re angry when we should be reasoning. I think the best single thing all of us can do is calm down. And maybe think a little bit more and talk a little bit less.”

    Like most of you, I know that I will miss Willard Parr on WSRW radio as much as I miss Ernie Blankenship. Both men were very good to me as a young man looking for work in Highland County. I know that they gave a lot to the community in return for their respective talents and successes.

    Some of my go-to newspaper websites are in places I’ve enjoyed visiting, like Sheridan, Wyo., for instance. After arriving in Sheridan some three decades ago in cowboy boots, a flannel shirt and Levi’s, I was asked by a few locals if I was in town as part of the big rodeo. I wasn’t. But the timing was funny, since almost every other out-of-towner was dressed like me – and there for the rodeo – the annual Sheridan-WYO-Rodeo that began in 1931.
