    For this column, I’m going to speak about the new “Joker” movie. If you haven’t seen it and don’t want spoilers, stop reading this now. I’ll try to be as vague as possible, but I can’t promise that I won’t let something slip.

    A neighbor used to catch the biggest fish to ever be removed from the Wabash River, or so he claimed. While my dad and I would throw our lines in by an old covered bridge to catch blue gills and sunfish, he had a knack for coming back with catfish as long as an old “boiler tub,” (the way he measured them).

    The printed newspaper is a life force —“the beating heart of a community.” It is a “warm and comfortable medium, a product able to command and sustain an audience. This week is National Newspaper Week and I’m here to tell you publishers and editors are working hard to make the changes necessary to earn your trust.

    I’ve noticed a number of Confederate battle flags being displayed in the Van Wert area, often adjacent to the Stars and Stripes. I implore those who are doing so to please reconsider. This practice besmirches our national flag and dishonors the memory of the over 35,000 Ohio soldiers who sacrificed their lives to preserve our Union.

    Thumbs up to Rich Riley, owner of Young’s Trash Service.

    “Relax.” That’s something I’m not very good at. Over the weekend, I had a lot on my “To-Do List.” Do you ever have so much to do that you decide to do nothing at all because it’s all so overwhelming? That’s sorta how my weekend went. I kept putting things off and the next thing I knew, it was Sunday night.

    It was late on Sunday afternoon when my stomach asked the embarrassing, but understandable question, “What are you doing to me and how long will it continue?”

    A nationwide USA Today/Suffolk University Poll conducted in late August found a sharply divided country that views next year’s presidential campaign as a sobering test of the fundamental values of the United States.

    I was impressed with how much the letter of Robert Hartman in the Sept. 25 Times Bulletin’s Your Opinion section echoed what Noah Girod had written earlier. Basically, they admitted that they had messed up, but have demonstrated that they have their act together and want a chance to prove it.

    Thumbs up to the Van Wert Fire Department and the Van Wert Sheriff Dept. along with the Senior Class Vantage Career Center Criminal Justice class for their help with the “Stuff the Truck” event that was held on Sept. 7 and 8 at Walmart in Van Wert.

    We have so many generous businesses that support our mission at the Council on Aging.

    On behalf of our board of directors, I wanted to thank you for attending our recent Quarterless Auction. This event is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we so appreciate your support!

    Despite waking up Friday with a sinus infection that only worsened on Saturday, I still decided to go hiking in Cuyahoga Valley National Park with Caesar this weekend. This was our third trip, and this time I took my mom along for the hike.

    Earlier this week, I was in the break room of a local business. Suddenly, it dawned on me that there was a cleaning person very quietly sweeping floors, reaching beneath tables and sofas and reaching deeper to enhance the cleaning effort and occasionally reaching over to pick something up off the floor to put in a waste basket.

    At the end of each summer, Congress typically adjourns, letting me spend more time in Ohio instead of commuting back and forth to Washington every week. I love it because I get more time to travel the state and meet people in every corner of Ohio. This summer was no exception. I traveled over 4,000 miles in my pickup truck, and had 75 meetings with farmers, small business owners, factory workers, police officers, drug counselors, recovering addicts and so many others in 39 different counties throughout the state.

    Over the years, I’ve made it clear millionaires and billionaires should pay their fair share of income taxes but I’ve also said we should not demonize all of them and call them sinister and evil. Success is to be celebrated. Successful people are usually rainmakers for the rest of us.

    My name is Robert Hartman and I am incarcerated at North Central Corrections and correction is what I sought. This brings up a question. Exactly what kind of man is the community looking for? In the years I’ve spent behind the fence, I’ve witnessed many repeat offenders return for yet more time.

    I have been all go since school started back up, so it will be nice to slow down a little today when I head to Cleveland to see a band called Angels and Airwaves.

    There are very places whose footprints remain in my heart after 70 years. But this isn’t just any plot of ground. It represents a shelter where my grandmother and my mother would walk with me. Even now, the sound of their shoes echoing from its wooden floor opens a tender spot in my heart.

    As technology evolves, we need to make sure our workers are growing with it.
