    There were times during a Thursday rally Barack Obama couldn’t help but talk about himself, even though he was supposed to be talking about other people. There were other times he could barely talk at all. During the Cleveland rally for Rich Cordray and Betty Sutton, Obama repeatedly talked about himself, despite the candidates sitting behind him. Several times, he stuttered as he attempted to attack President Trump and the success of recent Republican initiatives.

The 27-year-old from McAdoo has been on the radar of U.S. Marshals,...

    Ohio State University employs nearly 90 diversity-related administrative employees, which costs taxpayers in the Buckeye State about $7.3 million in salaries and benefits annually,... The 88 administrators receive an estimated $7.3 million in total compensation, which includes $5.38 million in salaries and an estimated $1.89 million in fringe benefits. “To put that administrative expense into perspective, about 750 in-state students could get a full scholarship for tuition and fees if those dollars were directed to student financial aid. Stated differently, it takes the entire tuition dollars from 750 in-state students to pay for those 88 diversicrats,” economics Professor Mark ....

Sarah Gillam, a 35-year-old Language Arts instructor at Hilliard Bradley High School, was placed on paid administrative leave pending the results of an internal investigation, the Columbus Dispatch reported. “Last night, we were made aware of a classroom activity that should never have taken place,” school district officials said in a statement obtained by the paper. “We absolutely share the outrage of our parents and community...”

    After an Ohio parent blew the whistle on a morality test given to a high school class, the Hilliard City School District sent the teacher who gave the test to time out. Students were given a 36-question test about various ethical situations in which they were asked to choose what actions were OK and which were not. But the questions, given to a 10th-grade language arts class at Hilliard Bradley High School, crossed a line as far as parent Todd Sandberg was concerned, The Columbus Dispatch reported. Sandberg said the test was graded in a way that it would tell...

    Association of Mature American Citizens ^ | September 7, 2018 | Outside Contributor
    Democratic Party power-player Steve Phillips is behind the rise of four potential far-left governors who have already won their primaries. The San Francisco attorney is a mega-wealthy self-identified student of “Marx, Mao, and Lenin” directing huge resources into socialist and communist-led groups, with the goal of putting his personal far-left proteges into governor’s mansions in Maryland, Georgia, Florida, and Arizona. Phillips and his partners in the highly secretive group Democracy Alliance hope that by electing far-left governors into four currently Republican-led states, the drive to impeach President Donald Trump and destroy his “Make America Great Again” agenda will be accelerated....

    The midterms are just around the corner and the Republican Party is struggling, Ohio Gov. John Kasich said Sunday on CBS' “Face the Nation.” “Unfortunately, our party is shrinking,” Kasich said. “We’re now down to about 25 percent. It’s all becoming like a remnant. Parties go through this, but the party has shrunk. And in my state and in my community and in my district, we had a congressional race that the Republican who took my place was able to win by 17 points. And in this election — yes, just a couple of weeks ago — he won by...

    COSHOCTON, Ohio — These days, three souls bring Sam Bennett hope — his wife, Debbie; God, and President Trump. Like most of his neighbors in Coshocton — population 11,000 — Mr. Bennett hasn’t once looked back since voting for Mr. Trump in 2016. Mr. Bennett is a soft-spoken man of 60 with close-set eyes and an easy smile, devoted to Christ and the collection of mining artifacts in his kitchen. The support he showed Mr. Trump at the voting booth remained unshaken through the Stormy Daniels fiasco and the recent outcry over family separations — two moments when, Mr. Bennett...

    Englewood — When businesses sell products, they need packages. And that’s where a company like Value Added Packaging comes in. The Lau Parkway box and package manufacturer is growing, planning a new research and development lab and hiring more workers. The company needs the space. It is leasing an additional 30,000 square feet across Lau from its main facility. But that leasing will end when the company expands behind its current building in 2019. In all, Value Added Packaging — sometimes called “VAP” — is expanding by some 40,000 square feet. The total value of the investment in the lab...
