    Helloooooo Cleveland! That’s what I’ll be saying a week from today. Cleveland is my favorite place in the world, but with a job that demands a lot of my time, it’s been quite some time since I’ve been there, but that will change next Saturday.

    What a precious unexpected provisional gift from the Giver of Gifts a few days ago. I was driving down State Line Road north of Dixon and my eyes caught the glimpse of a pile of discarded apples in the field.

    From a very young age, I have loved to read. Perhaps the catalyst for my affection for books was the fact that I was a sickly child and spent a good amount of time indoors. If an illness was going around, I got it. I missed more than 80 days my first-grade year with such maladies as chicken pox, mumps, etc. During my second-grade year, my parents and I learned I was allergic to just about everything and I started taking allergy shots. Still, my summers and falls were spent inside so I could breath. Breathing is important.

    This month, we learned that 143 million Americans’ – about half the country – had their personal information exposed to criminals by the company Equifax during a massive data breach. That’s dates of birth, social security numbers, addresses and more.

    I’m doing everything in my power to protect Ohioans’ personal data.

    It’s one of those emotional, divisive issues that has ardent, impassioned supporters on all sides…what should America do about illegal immigrants?

    President Donald Trump riled members of both political parties recently when he announced plans to rescind DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) a program launched by President Barack Obama in 2012.

    Movies can be a great escape for people. I know I certainly love watching a movie I’ve never seen before and getting lost in it. Watching movies at home can be nice and relaxing, but there is nothing quite like going to a movie theater and seeing a movie on a screen so big that it fills your entire line of sight, and hearing it so loud on surround sound that it feels like you’re right there.

    We’re all guilty of committing confirmation bias. That’s the tendency to interpret new evidence as confirmation of our own existing beliefs and theories.

    I wanted to take a second and thank the United Way, its donors, and local partners for all they do for Van Wert County. For those who are unaware what a huge role the United Way provides to the community, it is important to know that last year, through its supporters, the United Way provided over $400,000 of support to over 25 local Van Wert County charitable organizations.

    It has always been my nature to read between the lines when issues of giving more of my money to a government source is presented. And, I have always maintained that only a fool would vote to raise his own taxes. More often than not, once that tax revenue is in hand, that is when the “kid in a candy store” mentality goes into full operation mode. The substantive earmark gets buried all too quickly while fire inspectors become city employees.

    In the Saturday, Sept. 9 edition of this paper, Mr. D.J. Muse, CPA, had a letter offering a glimpse of area tax rates. This man is highly educated and knows more about area taxes. state and federal taxes than our mayor or city auditor combined. Mr. Muse does our taxes and is very knowledgeable.

    We are writing this letter to notify area farmers and customers of the changes occurring within our business. Homier & Sons Inc., would like to set the record straight!

    Thumbs up to all those who sponsored me and supported the PLC Health Clinic Walk!

    Thumbs down to “all” city/county and so-called pet lovers.

    The topic of suicide has been on my mind a lot lately. A small part of that is because September is Suicide Prevention month.

    A bigger part of that is because I’ve felt very down at periods of my life and can empathize with people who feel that way so much so that they just want it all to end. The largest part is, 7 years ago, on Sept. 8, my cousin hung himself.

    I looked at the old home place in disbelief earlier this week as I took my weekly pilgrimage past the ground our family once stood on and worked on as I was growing up as a child.

    About a month ago President Donald Trump declared the opioid epidemic a national emergency as drugs now rank as the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 50. Opioid overdoses have quadrupled since 1999. Over 52,000 died in 2015.

    It’s time American companies invest in their greatest asset: the American Worker.

    As Washington turns its attention to tax reform, I want to cut taxes for working families and for businesses that support good-paying American jobs – not multinational corporations that ship our jobs overseas or squeeze American workers. I want to see tax reform that puts Ohio workers first.

    This week, I rolled out two pieces of my plan to make hard work pay off once again – two bills that work together to encourage businesses to invest in American workers.

    The Veterans Service Office would like to thank the following for their help in making the Veterans Day at the Fair a success. The fair board member in charge of Veterans Day was Ron Owens. Kim Hughes who helped at the race track with checking in the veterans and whatever else that was needed. The corn bread muffins were made and donated from the Van Wert Manor, and Community Health Professionals who served the ham and beans.

    Mark Britton and I will be hosting a question and answer session on two Civil War regiments that had many men from the surrounding area in them. The 99th O.V.1. and the 118th O.V.1. (Ohio volunteer infantry) both formed at Camp Lima in late summer 1862.

    Mr. Muse is correct that our tax increase will make Van Wert the highest income tax rate of the communities he chose to compare. Along with the comparison of income tax rates, we should also look at the services provided by those income tax revenues and the revenue sources those communities have. Of the 18 communities Mr. Muse chose to compare, nine are villages that do not staff full time police or fire. Van Wert provides excellent police and fire services which consume over 70 percent of the General Fund revenues.
