In Ohio, one out of every seven jobs is connected to growing, processing, or distributing the food we eat and the products we use every day. In fact, agriculture and food contribute more than $107 billion to our state’s economy each year. That’s why, when I talk to farmers around the state, I hear how important the farm bill is and how the lack of a farm bill has led to uncertainty that makes it tougher for farmers to do their jobs. In fact, the lack of a farm bill has even affected farmer’s planting decisions. That is not good for Ohio farmers and it is not good for Ohioans.

The Thanksgiving leftovers are put away, the mountains of dishes washed, the football games taken in and the dog is snoring contentedly on the couch.

Another successful Thanksgiving meal with family.

Now it’s time to turn my attention to the bare Christmas tree.

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

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.

 
Letter to the Editor

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
