What parent hasn’t felt a little twinge of jealousy when their child names a famous person who has influenced their life choices? Be it LeBron James or some other sports star or perhaps a movie or music star. How scary are the last two? Right now, it’s easier to find famous people in rehab than it is on Rodeo Drive or in Hollywood. Few fit the mold as role model except for drug abuse, eating disorders and somewhat questionable behavior.

I would like to thank the two families who have agreed to be host families for our German exchange students this Fall. However, I am still trying to find host families for the remaining six students. The deadline for placing the students is April 28.

I believe in the power of expanded exports to spur the creation of good jobs, but at the same time, it is critical that we enforce the international rules of trade. When our competitors manipulate markets, engage in illegal dumping, or raise barriers to trade, the United States must take action on behalf of Ohio workers, farmers, and service providers.

Enforcing our trade laws is not a partisan issue. It is a jobs issue and I am proud to stand with the people I represent when their jobs are threatened by the illegal trade practices of our competitors.
