If I had to choose between fire and the internet, I’d choose fire. (Yes, I know. Feel free to insert your “get used to the heat” jokes any time.) As Grog, the first caveman, realized when he accidentally dropped a big rock onto a smaller rock at just the proper angle, thereby sending a small spark that ignited his woolly mammoth rug, “Fire Good.”

    For the second time in three decades, I managed to lock myself out of the house. But neither that fact or the Saturday afternoon snow could put a damper on my otherwise productive day.

    Perhaps Willie Nelson’s most popular Christmas song was the one he wrote about Frankie Brierton, a disabled street vendor who sold “pretty paper, pretty ribbons” for pennies while crawling along a downtown Fort Worth, Texas sidewalk.

    “The good news is that obamacareplans.com summarizes all the key info for you, making it easy to compare your options and decide. Whether you prefer to lower your monthly premiums with a bronze or silver plan, or need to lower your out-of-pocket cost with a gold or platinum plan – we have you covered.” To that statement, two words come to mind. The first one is “bull.” I’ll bet you can figure it out, especially if you are among the millions of middle-income workers who are not receiving taxpayer-funded medical coverage – not even an aluminum plan.

    School board members are to be commended for putting an end to a political boondoggle – rife with potential conflicts of interests as it was. Sadly, for the board’s appropriate – and thoughtful – action, they were – like many others – insulted by the Republican mayor of Hillsboro – and for the record, the insult was made in his official capacity as mayor. Oh, well, you can lead a jackass to water, but it's still a jackass.

    In the next seven weeks, Hillsboro City Council has a chance to do the right thing by postponing crucial votes on the mayor’s personal agenda until January. The question is: Do you have the intestinal fortitude to do what’s right or would you prefer to aid and abet the likes of Hastings and Lambert? (One indicted – subsequently acquitted, the other convicted.) If the latter, please explain yourselves and put it on the record.

  • Tiger Nation, Chillicothe Paints lose ‘The Voice’ in John Wend
    Friday, November 3, 2017 8:42 AM
    “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)
    Sunday, October 29, 2017 6:59 PM
    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.

    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.
