LIMA — Ohio Gov. John Kasich made one of his first campaign stops in northwest Ohio Friday, visiting Wannemacher Logistics on Hanthorn Road in Lima.

Kasich was quick to outline his successes in his first term at the helm.

“When I started, the unemployed in Ohio could have filled 3 1/2 Ohio stadiums,” he said. “We have created 263,000 private sector jobs and given our workers back their dignity. Having a job is a morale issue.”

When Kasich took office in 2011, the state’s debt was $8 billion. Today, there is a $1.5 billion surplus.

“We were carrying this huge debt. We just had to sit down at the table and decide what we needed and what we didn’t need,” Kasich said. “And along the way, we cut taxes and we are poised for more economic growth. We not only have agriculture and manufacturing, which are doing great, we are also involved in energy and are attempting to become independent. We are expanding our service and upgrading our logistics. When you see those orange barrels, that means people are working, we’re moving things.”

Kasich also touched on the elimination of the “death tax” in Ohio.

“You shouldn’t have to visit the undertaker and the tax man on the same day and walk away without your [family] business,” he said. “We got rid of that and are encouraging the federal government to do the same. Small business is the engine of economic growth.”

Paws to Consider — The circle of life at the vets

We have a new picture in our waiting room. A Norman Rockwell print, “At the Vets” depicts a young boy holding a Beagle puppy with a make-shift bandage around its head. Surrounding the pair is a colorful bunch of clients and pets only Mr. Rockwell could create.

This picture was the first thing I saw when I entered the office of Dr. E. F. Laman on a cold Saturday morning in December nearly 20 years ago. I was a 24-year-old senior veterinary student who made the trek from Columbus to Delphos to ask him about a job. Edward Franklin Laman was a big man then, a rather imposing figure to this nervous, skinny kid. He proved to be as warm and friendly as they come, though, and made me feel very welcome.
