  • Tiger Nation, Chillicothe Paints lose ‘The Voice’ in John Wend
    “It's impossible to put into words what John Wend has done for Greenfield. Whether it was coaching, announcing or just supporting our students, John touched so many lives. We were truly blessed to have such a great supporter of Tiger Nation for so many years. He wore his purple with pride whether win or lose. He always was a positive voice for our town. We really did lose a great man." – McClain High School Principal Jason Potts

  • Godspeed: Aunt Patty Krebs (1940-2017)
    Aunt Patty helped Pam and me get through the births of our three children at HDH and the death of my father. All nurses – and doctors – could learn from Patty. She was the best. She will be missed by those who knew and loved her. I cannot imagine a better ambassador for Highland District Hospital.
  • Mary Brown Turner (1925-2017): 'Onward and Upward'
    We talked before she decided to step down from city council. I remember telling her then as I told her on a few other occasions: Mary, you've done enough. In fact, not too many of us have done nearly as much. Mary truly put service before self throughout her long and charitable life. Requiesce in pace, dear friend.

  • Trump, Comey, CHIP grants and Four Minutes With Forsha
    As a longtime local sports fan and occasional sportswriter at-large, it pleases me that Stewart Gardner and Dave Hilliard are teaming up to cover the Indians’ Friday night football games on 101.5 FM. They do a great job. I enjoy their radio coverage when I can’t make it to the games. But about that halftime show: “Four Minutes With Forsha.” Where did you find this guy? Seriously, I enjoy that halftime segment as well.
  • City sidewalks, city ‘considerations,’ mostly lip service
    Hillsboro City Council members Lee Koogler, Dick Donley, Bill Alexander, Justin Harsha, Rebecca Wilkin, Claudia Klein, Ann Morris and Tracy Aranyos will be hearing two appeals in regard to another dubious city sidewalk replacement project in the 100 block of South High Street (west side) at the July 10 council meeting.

  • Congressman Brad Wenstrup passes the ‘gut-check’ test
    I think Congressman Brad Wenstrup has, in fact, made a difference. Is he now just going from one election to the next? At this point, I would offer a guarded no. Time will tell. However, my gut instincts tell me he’s still the best choice for Ohio’s Second Congressional District. He’s earned another term in Congress. Thank you for your service on many fronts, Col. Wenstrup.
  • Joe Cole (1936-2017): Hillsboro loses another community icon
    Former Hillsboro City Schools Superintendent Rick Earley told The Highland County Press that "Joe and Arlene are two great people who will do anything to help our students. They do a lot behind the scenes without a lot of publicity. They're just great people."
  • Happy 90th birthday, Bud Brown
    Clarence J. “Bud” Brown, Jr. will be 90 years old on June 18. He was born on June 18, 1927. I always remember Bud’s year of birth for one simple reason: It was also the year of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Miller Huggins and one of the greatest teams in baseball history – the 1927 New York Yankees.
