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.

    "During World War II, American soldiers from every city and walk of life rolled through North Platte on troop trains en route to their ultimate destinations in Europe and the Pacific. This small town, wanting to offer the servicemen warmth and support, transformed its modest railroad depot into the North Platte Canteen. Every day of the year, every day of the war, the Canteen – staffed and funded entirely by local volunteers – was open from 5 a.m. until the last troop train of the day pulled away after midnight."

    Whether city voters – and taxpayers – realize it or not, Lee Koogler is one of the few remaining voices of reason in city government. I’ll include City Auditor Gary Lewis and three other honorable members of council (I’m sure they’re better off not being named here) in that observation. Former Hillsboro Mayor Betty Bishop warned us five years ago that this day was coming. But no one listened. When will you?

    Fast-forward to 2018 and we all know the answer as to whom brought us to this unfortunate predicament. And now it’s time to pay the Paint Creek fiddler.

    Randy Mustard has served Paint Township, Highland District Hospital and his community with a strong, yet humble, work ethic. He deserves voters’ support for county commissioner.

    I’ve written this before, but it’s worth repeating. Roughly 20 years ago, Adams County Prosecutor David Kelley was in my office at The People’s Defender in West Union. A customer came in and asked him “As prosecutor, who’s your boss?” David replied: “The 29,000 people of Adams County.” That’s how all public officials should view their positions. You are not rulers. You work for the people – or at least that’s the theory. We boss you. You do not boss us. Period.
