Everyone in Bainbridge at the Fall Festival of Leaves seemed to be enjoying the beautiful autumn weather while talking with their neighbors. That’s what communities are all about. Hillsboro used to be like that. And then two geriatric men – joined at the hip – showed up from California. Today, one of them is awaiting sentencing. Good riddance on that count. Maybe their local enablers are starting to wake up. Maybe. Hillsboro deserves better. The citizens and taxpayers surely deserve better.

    Poor President Trump. Now it’s the comedians who’ve got his dander up. Granted, not all comedians are actually funny, so maybe the Trumpster has a point. Still, comedians from Johnny Carson and before – and many since – have made fun of presidents. It’s grist for the old humor mill. And Trump’s grist is the gift that won’t quit giving.

    As a nation, as a people and as fellow human beings, we need this to end. Not tomorrow. Not next year. Now. We are better than this. For more than 200 years, Americans have done more to promote peace, humanitarianism and economic development in more parts of the world than any other nation. Let’s promote some of that at home. Beginning with peace. Now. Pax tibi.

    Thanks to the courage of Bill Alexander and Rebecca Wilkin (with commendable support from Lee Koogler), the full council may soon have an opportunity to do the right thing and let the citizens and taxpayers know that you represent them – not the administration.

  • 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.

    If David Meade is correct about the world ending next Saturday, I’m left with this cruel reality: I’m gonna have to eat those 2004 navy beans sometime in the next six days, and it’s not going to be pretty. Maybe I can flush ’em down with 10 or 12 gallons of our emergency water supply. And eggs. We’ve got lots of eggs. Maybe I should pass on the eggs. Beans are magical enough. Happy End Times. See you on the other side.

    At the December 2015 council meeting, Steven Williams referenced the history of fighting against racism in the city of Hillsboro, including the case against desegregation in 1954. Those brave “Marching Mothers of Hillsboro” from 1954 are being inducted into the Ohio Civil Rights Hall of Fame on Oct. 5 at the Ohio Statehouse. How much time did the mayor and city council devote to this important part of Hillsboro history (and national history) at the Sept. 11 meeting? Anyone?

  • 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.

    I can only imagine the reactions from USPS carriers to the FedEx and UPS drivers when they end up with a truckload of these poop-filled boxes on their respective routes. It reminds me of the time I tossed the last cell phone I ever had out the window of my truck. Some things – especially stool samples – are just too hazardous to transport in the summer months. Now, where’s that damned box…

    Performing before an almost all-white audience in Tennessee, Ray Wylie Hubbard paused to offer his support for the First Amendment and rap music, which had been under considerable public tension. “In music, Ralph Stanley and Bill Monroe killed more people than Ice T and 50 Cent. And just think of all those great bluegrass murder ballads we wouldn't have without the First Amendment. I’m a great believer in the First Amendment. First is first.” Hubbard also said that all of us should remember to “keep our gratitude higher than our expectations.”
