In 2012, then-Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, lied on the floor of the Senate by saying that presidential candidate Mitt Romney had not paid taxes in over 10 years. This allegation was labeled “pants on fire” by Politifact. In an interview years after the election, Reid said, “Well, they can call it whatever they want. Romney didn’t win, did he?”
Recently President Biden made a statement that gas was over $4 a gallon when he really took office. That may be right, but on Election Day 2020, I bought gas for $1.74. From that day on, gas increased weekly and peaked at over $4 a gallon.
I was told in 1988 that I had Alopecia Areata Universallitus Totallis. I was told this after a trip to the Cleveland Clinic and a dermatologist specialist.

In the final weeks of this session, the Ohio General Assembly must prioritize House Bill 165, legislation that would increase access to Unleaded 88 fuel. This legislation was unanimously passed by the House in November 2021. Unfortunately, the Senate Ways and Means Committee has only held one hearing on it.

Lima is a great place for musicians. We have some outstanding music stores that go above and beyond. Rettig Music and Goodwin Music are staples in our community, and the staff never disappoints!
I had such hope after the election. Finally, they are going to work together and do something for us.
I was a teenager in the 1950s and supported the changes made in the 1960s. Even the Catholic Church loosened its rules a bit. Those changes revealed sexual abuse by priests, sports coaches, and men in positions of power, including politicians.
The political climate in this country has been going downhill since Newt Gingrich came on the scene and encouraged the nastiness that we now see from the MAGA crowd by telling the party that the next generation of Republicans would have to learn to “raise hell,” to stop being so “nice,” to realize that politics was, above all, a cutthroat “war for power” — and to start acting like it. The GOP certainly took that message to heart.
The college crybabies continue to whine about their student loan debt. Unless they got a “full ride” scholarship, did someone tell them college would be free? Every year, I laugh to myself when local media shows college freshmen unloading their belongings to begin their college life. And of course, Mommy and Daddy are there to help them unload and get started.
