ROB PORTMAN

 

Part of my job is to fight for American workers who are encountering unfair and illegal trade barriers in other countries. Even though those fights can sometimes go on for years, when we can create a level playing field for Ohioans and Ohio companies, everyone wins.

Ohio is home to countless innovative businesses, ranging from high tech job creators to advanced manufacturers and service providers. Since we compete in a global economy, many jobs at these Ohio companies depend on exporting products to customers around the world. In fact, over one quarter of Ohio manufacturing jobs are dependent on export sales.

 
The Gettysburg Address, remembered

BY SENATOR ROB PORTMAN

There are two paintings beside the desk in my office. One is of George Washington, the man who helped establish the Union. The other is of Abraham Lincoln, the man who saved it.

One hundred and fifty years ago — or seven score and 10 years, as he might have put it—Abraham Lincoln stood on a wind-swept battlefield at a tiny railroad crossing in southern Pennsylvania. He was not the featured speaker that day. That honor fell to Edward Everett. Everett’s speech would last two hours; his first sentence was more than seventy words long.

DEAR EDITOR:

Wednesday morning, we the City of Delphos, lost one of our most dedicated public servants we had, Tom McCabe.

Sgt. Tom McCabe worked, lived, and died supporting the Delphos Police Department and the City of Delphos.

Tom was my superior officer when I started in law enforcement and was basically in charge of breaking me into law enforcement. He did his most to lay the groundwork for me in law enforcement; just wish I had absorbed his photography skills.

Tom was not only one of my most loyal and dependable officers I ever had served with, but one who had moral and ethical qualities. He was a friend you knew was forever.

Thanks for being a good cop Tom and loyal employee.

If I may borrow a favorite saying from Tom, “This is a bunch of bull----,”; we wish you still were here.

May your soul rest in peace but you be spiritually with us forever.

Dennis M. Kimmet

Retired Police Chief

Delphos

DEAR EDITOR:

I want to say “thank you” to a very special organ donor who in November 1997, allowed me to be alive today!

I received a heart transplant at the Cleveland Clinic. I will always remember the day my donor’s little sister asked if she could hear her brother’s heart beating in my chest. I will never forget the big smile and happy tears on the face of that 11-year-old younger sister. She just hugged me and said Aaron, her brother’s name, and looked up and smiled.

Have you considered being an organ donor? You could help to give the gift of life to another. Thank you for considering it.

Someone else has less

Where has the year gone?

It’s already November and we’ve had our first snowfall.

To many people’s surprise, we’ve already had a Christmas story in the paper.

I’m sure with the economy, the Delphos Community Christmas Project will need every bit of time they have to pull together a nice holiday for those who need a little boost. It’s tough out there and every penny will count.

It will be that way for many of us, I fear. Most of us are fortunate and have jobs. It may not be the one we want or need but a job none the less.

And here comes the quandry: What place will Thanksgiving have this year?
