One of the more interesting financial searches is this: Select your favorite – or least favorite – member of Congress, then compare the member’s first disclosure report with his or her most recent disclosure. Unless someone went through a costly divorce or some other litigation, it’s a safe bet that the most recent financial disclosure will more than double in pages from the initial year in office.

    "This whole political process is not that complicated. All it takes is having two sides who trust each other and who have the guts to get the big-money lobbyists completely out of the equation. Remove those … (think donkey and aperture in a compound word) from the process and there's no reason that both sides can't give a little and settle this." – Bill Horne

  • Political mailer shows devious side of politics
    Monday, April 9, 2018 7:36 PM
    The next check I’m writing will be to Brian Baldridge, not only because he is an honorable man, but also because this particular tactic in politics is particularly annoying. Cleveland political action committees have no clue about southern Ohio’s 90th House District. They also have no place here. My family will be voting for Brian Baldridge in the May 8 primary.

  • George Washington had more than 50 dogs (but not in Hillsboro)
    Friday, April 6, 2018 7:43 PM
    One of my favorite U.S. presidents – for many reasons – is George Washington. Unlike today’s wannabe-statesmen, Washington knew the difference between a political swamp and a lobbyist hot tub. By the way, the Father of our Country also loved dogs. No kidding.

    The 46th annual Ernie Blankenship Radio-Telethon, hosted by the Hillsboro and Greenfield Rotary Clubs on Wednesday, March 28, raised close to $100,000 for the Highland County Society for Children and Adults, bringing the 46-year total to an incredible $3.6 million. Think about that for a moment. For almost half a century, this telethon – with its humble beginnings – has averaged $78,261 each year in donations from the community. Give yourself a pat on the back. You deserve it.

  • UPDATED: So long, Armintrout, Wilkin, Hastings building; city auditor cancels purchase order on mayor's property
    Tuesday, March 27, 2018 6:44 PM
    The city auditor canceled the $33,100 purchase order for the mayor’s property on March 26 and informed The Highland County Press on March 27, following a request from the newspaper. To his credit, Lewis initially questioned the ethics related to a sitting mayor taking advantage of public funds for his personal property.

    One of my lasting memories and messages from the late Ernie B. Blankenship was a simple one: “You have to give back.” And the time to give back is now. The Hillsboro and Greenfield Rotary Clubs will host the 46th annual Ernie Blankenship Radio-Telethon for the benefit of the Highland County Society for Children and Adults on Wednesday, March 28.

    For many, many years as the owner of Hillcrest Pharmacy on South High Street in Hillsboro, John Fuller was – at one time or another – almost everyone’s best friend. Whether it was filling a badly needed prescription in the middle of the night, or giving away more of the store’s Russell Stover’s boxes of candy than he ever sold, John was, indeed, everyone’s friend. And there was never a better friend.

    Rep. Terry Johnson deserves credit for proving that a Republican can be elected to the Ohio House of Representatives from Vern Riffe territory. I’m hopeful that Adams County Commissioner Brian Baldridge can continue the trend. And If you are interested in an eye-opening perspective on the ongoing heroin/opiate problems and their related costs to taxpayers, read “Dream Land” by Sam Quinones. It is a sobering report on our society.

    The Highland County Press enjoyed recent visits from two newcomers to the southern Ohio political scene. This past week, Highland County commissioner candidate John D. Knauff of Carmel and Ohio House of Representatives candidate Beth Ellis talked about their reasons for running and respective qualifications.
