Sick Of Hearing About Donald Trump

Let me be upfront here. I voted for the guy that seems to be the most loved / most hated man in America. If he and Joe Biden are the only two choices on the ballot, I’ll vote for him again (and I am desperately hoping for better choices by then) But this aforementioned idolization…

They Are The Definition Of Cute

We often go over the things in this space that seem wrong with the world, well, at least in one man’s opinion. This week, please allow me to share a little bit about what’s right. Not too long ago, I had the distinct pleasure of watching two of our grandpups play in their first T-ball…

Continuing Discussion On Morals

I’ve been writing newspaper columns since my junior year in high school, almost 50 years ago. A couple of them produced death threats that the law enforcement folks deemed credible enough to have a chat with me about watching my back for a few days. Not sure I’ve written any that generated as much response…

Morals, Standards Gone

I saw a commercial the other day for a product similar to Narcan – a prescription medication used in case of suspected opioid overdoses. The TV spot showed a cheery young woman who could pass for the all-American girl next door. She’s happily getting ready to go out with friends. She’s smiling, petting her dog,…

Local Fund Needs You More Than Ever

It’s June and for most of us, the annual fund drive for the organization formerly known as MUFFY is months away. But not everyone. The United Way of Montgomery County, led by Gina Haile, is already working on this year’s drive. Why should you care? Because this may be one of the most important drives…

Timmons Tinkers With This, That & ‘Tuther

Did you see the news that Purdue top man Mitch Daniels is stepping down? Let me take a second to make something perfectly clear – I’m a big fan of our former governor. His book, Keeping the Republic: Saving America by Trusting Americans, came out a decade or so ago and was brilliant. His take…

Find Answers To Rising Prices, Or Risk The Consequence

I may not always succeed, but I try very hard to be a man of my word. Some time back, in this very space, I suggested that those of us who constantly run down the sitting president (or governor or mayor or county commissioner or whatever office) are not helping. My two cents was that…

While Argument Rages, Innocents Die

I have written several times about school shootings in the past. If there is a more heinous crime in today’s world, I do not know what it is – and that’s saying something. What I fail to understand is the outcry every time for more gun control laws. STOP! Before you take me behind the…
