“As a Christian who takes seriously our Lord’s commandment to love God and love our neighbor, I will be attending the Pride Month drag-queen events, loving my neighbors however they dress and appreciating the amazing diversity of God’s creation.” 

“To the person asking why ODOT can’t just provide fill dirt for the bike-path-extension project east of Athens. The answer is wetlands. Much of the property the bike path borders is protected wetland. This requires strict storm-water permits and is a lengthy one- to two-year process. It’s not an easy fix." 

“Why are summer camps for children in Athens so expensive? Does OU not realize they are in Appalachia? Yes, let’s expose our children to many fun forms of art and music... but only the children from wealthy families!”

“Yes, I would much rather use the regular check-out lanes to help keep people in business, but unfortunately, I have dealt with numerous errors over the years (at more than one store) and have learned, if I want to be charged correctly, I need to use the self checkout lanes.

“Nice little Pride parade, Athens. Thanks to all who planned, participated and came out in support. However, with the exception of Mayor Patterson (thanks Mayor Steve!), no local office holders showed their support. I hope everyone remembers this come election time.” 

“Using Hocking College funds, President Betty Young ‘traveled to a labor law and labor arbitration conference in Miami Beach, Florida, for two days in 2018. […] Young said… the college had to prepare for the next round of labor negotiations.’ So, Hocking College funds were used to help prepare the president to further destroy the small number of remaining faculty members and staff?”

“A backyard compost ‘heap’ becomes a banquet for everything from roaches to raccoons. Works great if you have your own back 40, but gets ugly in a dense housing area. Composting needs to be done in a container of sorts. A managed composting facility can do it right, but you have to believe that the costs of hauling stuff around and keeping it segregated from all the other stuff getting hauled around is worth the effort (and fees).” 

“John Dean is a hero, no doubt about it.”
