On ISIS, Congress should vote

We have as close to a national consensus as possible in the war against ISIS.Polls show the public wants strong measures. Practically everyone on the political spectrum says the terror group should be destroyed, even Elizabeth Warren and Rand Paul. President Barack Obama has given a prime-time speech committing the country to a yearslong war.And yet Congress can’t bring itself to vote to authorize military action. President Obama doesn’t want to ask for an au...

September is Campus Fire Safety Awareness Month

September marks the beginning of a new school year, the start of football season and cooler weather, but more importantly, it’s Campus Fire Safety Month. Last month I introduced Senate Bill 359 which addresses the very real need for improved fire safety measures in off-campus and rental homes.

Ensuring clean drinking water for Ohio communities

Earlier this month, I visited Put-in-Bay to tour The Ohio State University’s Stone Laboratory. I met with Stone Lab scientists and accompanied them as they collected water samples of Lake Erie to better understand the rise in toxic algal blooms.A high level of phosphorous in the lake is a contributing factor to the algal blooms, and I’ve recently announced funds to help farmers implement conservation practices that reduce phosphorous runoff into the lake. But we must ad...

Bella the social butterfly turning 6

Friday my baby girl will turn 6! It certainly doesn’t seem like it’s been that long since I was writing to you about the trials and tribulations of a pregnancy with type 1 diabetes. Since you’ve been following her since before she was born, I thought I’d let you know how she’s turned out.She is such a beautiful little lady and boy is she ever a lady. You can not get girly enough for Miss Bella. She loves zebras. We’re having a zebra-themed birthd...

Defining cohabitation

In February 2011, a grand jury indicted Jeffrey McGlothan of felonious assault, with a repeat-violent-offender specification, and one count of domestic violence as a result of an incident at the apartment he shared with his girlfriend, Cynthia Robinson. The domestic violence count alleged that McGlothan knowingly caused or attempted to cause physical harm to Cynthia, “a family or household member.”

Grandparenting

Dear Grandparenting: I need your advice about what to do with my youngest grandchild. Beth is eight years old. She has two sets of twins ahead of her in the family. They are 13 and 16 years, two boys and two girls. Beth has started to do all kinds of sexy show-off acts she picked up by watching TV and videos. I scolded her the first time but it didn’t make a dent. She was right back at it the next day.

Remembering Martha, the last Passenger Pigeon

One hundred years ago, Americans across the eastern United States could have looked up into the sky and seen it filled with passenger pigeons. Their flocks numbered in the billions and could turn day into night. Now they are extinct, the victim of overhunting and habitat destruction. The loss of this species is one of the greatest examples of what can happen if we are not committed to conserving our wildlife. We must learn from their example, and work to ensure that species such as the Africa...

Ya know ya make me want to (not) shout

My friend Rex prefaces all of his disquieting statements (which is to say, all of his statements) with the phrase, “I don’t mean this bad, but…” You’ve heard of pre-paid phone cards and pre-arranged marriages? This is sort of like a pre-confession; he’s asking for absolution in advance. If history is any indicator, when Rex begins, “I don’t mean this bad” you are about to hear a criticism that is equal parts hilarious and horrifying.

You can be “ProActiv”; I’m making peace

A lot of my college girlfriends blog on the website wordpress.com, and I have a blog of my own I need to be better at updating. Since we’re all 21 or 22 and either in our final year of college, starting big girl jobs or going to grad school, a lot of the recurring topics include coming to terms with and adjusting to the adult world, with all of its adult nuances.One of my friends, Jenn, is in graduate school now and had an excellent post I read earlier this week about weight,...

Many roles in a Real Estate transaction

You wouldn’t choose a surgeon to diagnose your car’s engine. Nor would you ask your accountant for a physical exam. Every professional specializes in a different field of knowledge.Buying or selling a home requires the services of several professionals. The first will be your lender who will determine the amount you are qualified to borrow to purchase a home. They will explain the different loan programs, the amount of the monthly payments and the amount of down payment...

Letter to the editor:

Letter to the editor:I was so pleased that Rick Hanes wrote his recent column about the wonderful event held for the five PHS athletes last weekend at Edison State. I could not believe that there was no coverage of the event in the paper, especially when they had run all those good articles about each of them. I waited each day to see a picture and an account of what transpired to no avail. I realize that the local staff has little control, but this lapse was inexcusable. Because M...
