For the Republicans who control Ohio state government from the governor’s office to the Senate to the House to the auditor to the AG to the SOS to the treasurer (etc., etc.) the really bad optics here is DeWine’s timing with this proposed 64-percent increase. DeWine’s Republican colleagues in the House and Senate just voted themselves – and many of their friends in government across Ohio’s 88 counties – a nice little pay raise after the November 2018 election. None of them, to my knowledge, campaigned on a platform of “Vote for me, and I’ll give myself a raise, courtesy of your hard-earned tax dollars.” However, that is exactly what they did.

    The Saturday USPS mail included an interesting postcard from Rob Anfinson of SurfNewMedia.com with an equally interesting offer to change our internet web host from a Kokomo, Ind. company to a Naples, Fla. company. Given that I received this in the dead of winter in Ohio, I quickly thought less of Kokomo and more of Naples. Maybe Rob would invite the staff down to the sunny Florida Gulf Coast to have a look-see at SurfNewMedia.com.

    Given today’s polar vortex political climate, this column is by no means intended to influence, change, alter, support, bolster or conflict with anyone else’s predetermined opinion on this – or any other – topic. In fact, if most of us are honest, personal opinions are often formed early and rarely change, regardless of the facts. It used to be said that we are entitled to our own opinions, but not to our own facts. Welcome to 2019.

    If Bubba can come up with 20 varieties of shrimp, I’d like to know how many private-sector working people and private business owners can come up with at least 20 varieties of taxes. While taxes will never be the fruit of the sea, you can only imagine how many ways ’til Sunday you really are being taxed.

    Is it just me, or has the tambourine-pounding, so-called Vietnam veteran (who, by many accounts, wasn’t in Vietnam) just about used up his 15 minutes of fame?

    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.
