    This week, I, like many others, had Monday off of school due to Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. I could not recall running any stories about Dr. King since I’ve been at The Times Bulletin. So, I reached out to friends and teachers who work at local schools, asking if any schools were doing anything in honor of Dr. King. To my surprise, I was told “no” over and over again. “No one is doing anything leading up to MLK Day!?” I thought to myself. I was surprised.

During the game, my mind drifted back to another game, many years ago when I attended a game with best friend, Mert Sprunger. We were sitting at that time in Section 6 and, as was the custom of the time, Mert was listening to the game on his transistor radio along with watching the game on the ice.

    In January we mark National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month – a reminder that modern-day slavery is all too real, and it’s happening in our own backyards. And tragically, the addiction crisis is also giving human traffickers another tool to use to exploit victims.

    Do you realize that many of our fellow citizens rarely, if ever, have a need to go into a bank or a post office anymore? It’s a sign of the changing times that is confounding the generations. Just one of the reasons there are divisions among the population.

    One day last week, I decided to get up, go to the gym, come back home, and enjoy breakfast with my dogs. Typically, I’d get up and rush to work each morning, but last week was the last week before I trekked on another 17 weeks of classes, so on that particular morning, I decided to enjoy a meal the brings back some of my favorite memories.

    At the end of this month, the Ohio General Assembly will consider revisions to the EdChoice voucher program that could include wide-ranging expansions for eligibility and application. Specific language in proposed amendments could include provisions that allow parents to seek vouchers on behalf of their student from a public school district, even if that student had previously not attended that specific district. Individual schools within a school district would be identified as voucher eligible based upon value-added scores from high-stakes testing.

    Thumbs up to Dr. Adams, the heart doctors from Lutheran, and Dr. Stoller and their staffs for the wonderful care I received after my surgeries and stay in the hospital.

    We are only a week into the new year and the world already seems to have gotten crazier and crazier. Admittedly, because the happenings of the world are so depressing, I avoid keeping up with what is going on. I’m saving what I can of my sanity for the March primary election.

    As I recently loaded my grocery cart at a local box store cash register, it dawned on me how much things had changed in the “in touch” conveniences we used to experience at grocery stores, gas stations and certain “front door purchases.”

    The new year is a time to look back on the accomplishments of 2019 and look forward into the new year. Reflecting back on 2019, I’m really proud of the work my team and I have done in Congress to help Ohioans and their families.

    An inspirational quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson for the new year: “What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when we bring what is within us out into the world, miracles happen.”

    I would like to thank the committee people for the work that they did at Fountain Park and the fairgrounds.

    The 4-H kids do a good job at Christmas time for people to drive and see. Keep up the good work.

    Sometime when we were around 40-years-old, a group of six of us couples that attended Fort Wayne Bible College decided to get together late on New Year’s Day for a snack carry-in, reminiscence of laughs on the college campus, memories involving certain professors and board games until well after midnight.

    As you make your resolutions for the New Year, keep in mind optimists, on average, live longer than pessimists, according to a study published recently by the Mayo Clinic.

    Veteran’s Day has come and gone for this year, and as a veteran, I do appreciate the expressions of thanks I often receive if I am recognized as a veteran, and also the parades and programs from area schools. But there is someone besides the veteran who also deserves your thanks, and that is the one who stays behind to keep the home fires burning as they used to say.

    This past weekend I went to a concert at The Clyde Theatre for the first time. The Clyde is located near downtown Fort Wayne. Long before my time, it was apparently a movie theatre. Now, after Sweetwater invested money into it, it is a concert venue and it is an absolute gem.
