Surely, the Republican-controlled Ohio government has some respect for the First Amendment. If not, the thin-skinned leaders of the Free Rent Party – not to be confused with the Free Soil Party – ought to find real work instead of trying to supersede the U.S. Constitution. But then again, we must remember the words of former Columbus newspaperman Oscar Ameringer who said, “Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other.”

    A very attractive young lady in Daisy Duke's cutoffs asked if she could help me. Well, how exactly does one tell an auto parts professional that he's somehow managed to break his dipstick? "This is probably an unusual request," I began. "But I need a dipstick for a Chrysler Town and Country."

    For those of us being forced to pay thousands of dollars for new cement on South High Street, the very least Mr. Koogler could do is answer a simple question: How many of you on city council have ever written a check to the city of Hillsboro for a new sidewalk? Is that so difficult?

    The former Cincinnati mayor and cocotte connoisseur clearly has more name recognition than any Democrat candidate thus far. And as far as the GOP 'goober-natorial' opposition next year, that’s looking to be about as lame as what passes for Ohio 'leadership' now. Let’s face it, if Trump can win America, Springer can win Ohio. The sleaze factors are about the same. And we probably deserve both of them.

    Surely, no city official would have the unmitigated gall to send a bill for $11,648 to a property owner unless they, themselves, have first paid for their respective sidewalks. Surely, they are not akin to members of Congress who exempt themselves from the onerous laws passed on "the rest of us."

  • So long, June Gregg, Bainbridge’s finest ambassador
    Saturday, April 8, 2017 8:01 PM
    When asked the secret to living a long life, June said it was simple. "Work hard. Stay young. That's what I tell everyone. Take advantage of being young and don't get old.” Then she smiled and laughed at her own philosophy on life. And what a great philosophy – one that began prior to the first World War and continued to 2017. June, you are a true treasure, and you will be missed. Heaven has yet another angel. You earned your wings long ago.

    In other words, Kasich is alleging that local schools and governments have plenty of cash. If so, there should be no new taxes, at least by the governor’s logic. Let’s hope he’s right. Meanwhile, local officials across the state – particularly county commissioners and township trustees – can expect little help in the next state budget, which takes effect July 1.

    For the first time since 1939, the Oregon Ducks are headed to the Final Four. The last time the Ducks were in the Final Four of the NCAA men’s DI basketball tournament they were the Webfoots. For a bit of local history, the last time Oregon was in the Final Four, they played Ohio State. The 1939 NCAA tournament MVP and top scorer was Greenfield’s Jimmy Hull, who scored 58 points for Ohio State.

    As much as I’d like to agree, I’d find it even more amusing to see a city trash collection service and the public records that would accompany it. That would be funnier than Ho-Jo’s on amateur night.

  • So long, Richard Blankenship, and thanks for the sweatshirt
    Tuesday, March 7, 2017 7:55 PM
    “If you were a friend of Richard, you knew it,” said Cincinnati attorney and family friend Tom Tepe. “He could be hard-headed, and he spoke his mind, which wasn’t easily changed. He loved his church, his family, his country and his farm. He was proud of his students’ accomplishments. He loved teaching and coaching. He was my friend, and I will miss him.”
