Yost: Proposed GASB rule wrong for Ohio

Ohio’s state auditor says that an additional reporting requirement for local governments to add future healthcare liabilities to their annual reports “would inaccurately state the position of the government and would be misleading.”Dave Yost traveled to Chicago on Thursday to testify before the Government Accounting Standards Board (GASB) in opposition to a proposal that would require local governments to begin reporting future healthcare liabilities for public em...

‘Honey Do’ list for our nation continued

The list of illegal, immoral and/or unconstitutional actions of our Federal government that should be corrected continues.The first item in my “honey do” list was to audit the Federal Reserve System, a private corporation that charges our nation six percent interest, every year, for the “money” they create out of thin air (they create it by making a journal entry) and loan to the Federal Government to pay its bills. The book entry is a form of interest beari...

Pro-athletes: Predisposed to violence?

From the O.J. Simpson trial of the early 1990s to the current Ray Rice scandal, domestic violence seems to continually plague the world of professional sports. As evidenced with the naming of two African American athletes in the opening line of this piece, a great deal of the media attention is focused on black males involved in these incidents. Regardless of how it’s spun, however, race shouldn’t be the primary focus of this issue; abuse is abuse.Domestic violence shou...

The ‘old men’s’ cancer: Part 2

It seems to me that the most chilling words I have ever had spoken to me waswhen my urologist told me I had prostate cancer. I had already experienced a heart attack and some years later underwent multiple heart bypass surgery - both of which were kinda scary, but the word “cancer” was in an entirely different league. To my generation “cancer” meant a death sentence. My mother, sister, and brother all died lingering deaths as cancer slowly ate away at their very being ...

Build it and bikes will come

Did you see the baseball movie Field of Dreams? Even if you didn’t, you’ve probably heard the phrase “If you build it, they will come” — which it immortalized.Well, how about “If you don’t build it, they won’t come”?When it comes to bicycles, cars, and public transportation, both sayings are true (even though one is decidedly catchier than the other).I recently moved back to Madison, Wisconsin after spendin...

Taming modern monopolies

We need to expand the struggle against privatizers.Analysts at the OECD, the Paris-based research agency, have just shared a grim prediction: If current trends “prevail,” all developed nations will show by 2060 “the same level of inequality as currently experienced by the United States.”If we let those current trends continue, that conclusion sounds about right. But why on earth should we let those trends continue? The trends that have made our wo...

Moving is a four letter word

To me there’s nothing worse on the planet than one particular sentence.It causes me heart palpitations, anxiety and pain.To some its mere utterance has brought about broken friendships and even divorce.I’m talking about this, ‘Hey, can you help me move?’Just mentioning it I broke out in a cold sweat.Moving someone from point ‘A’ to point ‘B’ is never easy.No matter who it is and h...

Ohio Supreme Court Justices at Xenia High School

What a great treat it was to listen to and speak with Justices Sharon Kennedy and Judith French at Xenia High School. It is a rare opportunity for most citizens to be able to talk with some of our most important judicial leaders. The audience got to know something more about the Justices and were able to view them as people rather than just a name in a black robe or on a ballot.

The God of angel armies

The verse of the day is Psalm 34:7. “The angel of The Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and rescues them.”This verse came to me one morning as I lay in bed thinking about a wonderful evening we had at your Grandma & Grandpa’s house recently listening to missionaries Leon & Lorraine Dillinger tell stories about their experiences in Papua, Indonesia.

There’s nothing scary about trick-or-treaters

Well, another Halloween is on it’s way to our little corner of America.What I have noticed in past years is that there were lots of the trick-or-treaters who stopped at my house were wearing blue jeans and t-shirts instead of Halloween costumes.What’s happened to Halloween?When I was a kid dressing up was the best part of going trick-or-treating.Kids complimented each other on their costumes and everybody, it seems, wore some kind of mas...

Playing toxic whack-a-mole

Flame retardants in everything from couch cushions to tents may be poisoning us all for no good reason.Popular activities like hiking, camping, and backpacking come with all kinds of risks. You can get heat stroke or hypothermia, run out of water, fall off a cliff, and bump into cougars or grizzly bears. If you get close enough to an infected ground squirrel for one of their fleas to hop onto your skin, there’s a chance you’ll catch bubonic plague.Perhaps the...

Do you want some hogwash with that burger?

A sneaky tax dodge is driving the Burger King-Tim Hortons merger.Burger King bills itself as “home of the Whopper,” a name intended to convey to burger eaters that this one is a whale of a deal. But “whopper” also means a prevarication, a crock, a tall tale — hogwash.
