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?

    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.”

    The fact that Trump – after internal pressure – was more forceful on Monday than on Saturday may prove to be a good thing and a learning moment. Let's hope there's not a next time for him to have to draw on this type of experience. And to the law-breaking protesters on either side, one can't help but wonder: When was the last time you actually put in a 60-hour work week or a 40-hour work week or even a 20-hour work week? Try it sometime. You'll be a lot less energetic about causing public and private property damage, making idiotic signs and even more idiotic rhymes – and trying to kill one another.

    The passing of legendary Coach Ara Parseghian this week was yet another grim reminder that I’m not getting any younger. Someone asked me why we have a story and an obituary on Coach Parseghian in The Highland County Press. That’s a fair question.

    After all this time and after all the sordid overlapping affairs of public business in the city of Hillsboro and the county of Highland between Bob Lambert and Drew Hastings and funded by the taxpayers, the only remaining question is this: How much is enough?
