    Conservative Firing Line ^ | 10/19/2017 | Joe Newby
    On Monday, the Wapakoneta Daily News in Ohio published a photo of President Trump that had been edited to give the president what can only be seen as a “Hitler-style” mustache, angering a number of people. The paper later apologized, claiming that it “would never intentionally” insult the president. According to the apology, the edit was characterized as “sloppy.” “The Wapakoneta Daily News regrets the image of President Donald Trump published on Page 1A of Monday’s newspaper,” Deb Zweb wrote. Zweb added: "While we edit photos on a daily basis, this particular photo was edited in a sloppy manner to...

    Rep. Pat Tiberi, a Republican House member from Ohio, is expected to resign as early as this week, The New York Times reported late Wednesday night. Tiberi has been a member of the House of Representatives since 2001, and is an "influential member" of the House Ways and Means Committee with "close ties to his party's leaders," The Times notes. Tiberi was in the running to chair the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee in 2015, but lost out to Rep. Kevin Brady. According to The Times' report, Tiberi is expected to join the Ohio Business Roundtable.

    Two students at one of America’s most elite liberal arts colleges recently decried America as not offering “anything worth being proud of.” In an opinion essay for The Oberlin Review, student field hockey team members Kennedy Kline and Ua Hayes boasted of taking the knee during the National Anthem at their most recent field hockey game:

The 70-year-old retired banker said he is unhappy with infighting and turnover in the White House. He does not like Trump's penchant for traveling to his personal golf resorts. He wishes the president would do more to fix the healthcare system, and he worries that Trump might back down from his promise to force illegal immigrants out of the...

    The New York Slimes ^ | OCT. 5, 2017 | Thomas B. Edsall
    Democrats point to a thousand reasons that Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election. Here is another. In political circles, it’s common knowledge that in four key states President Trump unexpectedly carried counties that Democratic presidential campaign strategists had failed to recognize as crucial terrain — sparsely populated areas of Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania. In “What I Got Wrong About the Election,” for example, published right after Clinton lost, David Plouffe, who had managed the Obama campaign in 2008, wrote that Trump’s margins in rural and exurban counties were off the charts. For example, in Madison County, an exurban area...

    Cleveland businessman Allan Jones has instructed his advertising firm to halt commercials during NFL games after the Tennessee Titans and other teams snubbed the National Anthem. He instructed an official of the Tombras group, "Effective immediately, please remove all commercials for Check into Cash, Buy Here Pay Here USA, or U.S. Money Shops from airing during NFL games this entire season. "Our companies will not condone in any form the unpatriotic behavior demonstrated by the NFL." "For the 29 states we operate in, this isn't much for them, but it's a lot for us. The Tombras group is our ad...

    On Friday, the Ohio Department of Health released the 2016 Ohio Abortion Report, revealing a decrease in the number of abortions last year. This marks the lowest level since 1976, when record-keeping first began. A total of 20,672 abortions were reported. “This report is further proof of how successful the pro-life movement has been in Ohio” said Mike Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life. “This past year alone, we saw 304 lives saved from the pain and suffering of abortion. We continue to advance groundbreaking legislation to protect the unborn, and we thank Governor John Kasich and the Ohio...

    Associated Press ^ | Sep 27, 2017 5:05 PM EDT | Brian Witte
    Maryland is suing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for failing to act on a petition requiring power plants in five upwind states to reduce pollution, the state’s attorney general and an official in Gov. Larry Hogan’s administration said Wednesday. The Hogan administration says 70 percent of Maryland’s ozone problem originates in upwind states. Maryland petitioned the EPA in November for a finding that 36 power plant units in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia are emitting air pollution affecting Maryland in violation of the Clean Air Act’s “good neighbor provision.” In January, the EPA issued a six-month extension to...

    Geauga County Sheriff Scott Hildenbrand on Sept. 25 issued a notification restricting all deputy sheriffs from accepting any off-duty work at National Football League games. He said the ongoing controversy involving professional sports players not standing for the National Anthem, and their team and league management apparently backing them, is the reason why. "Yesterday I attended the Browns game in Indianapolis with some friends. The stadium was almost full with 70,000 fans in attendance. During the National Anthem at least 21 Browns players kneeled as the entire stadium, made up of all races, ages, sex, religion and careers stood and...

    CENTER OF THE WORLD, OH -- In 1845, noted academic, businessman and admitted-eccentric Randall D. Wilmot from New York City came to a plot of land along the Mahoning River in Braceville and decided to settle here and establish a business. It was a smart move at the time: The land was located along the vibrant Pittsburgh-to-Akron stagecoach route; every day, scores of travelers and merchants came through, hungry, thirsty and looking for a place to spend the night. So he went about establishing an inn and general store. It thrived for more than 20 years and made him a...

    CHARDON, Ohio -- The Geauga County Sheriff on Tuesday barred any of his deputies from working off-duty security at future Cleveland Browns games because of their protest during the national anthem. Sheriff Scott A. Hildenbrand in a memo to his employees posted on Facebook said the Browns protest, which came in response to President Donald Trump's statements that NFL players who kneel during the national anthem should be fired, was "disrespectful" to veterans and police officers alike. "I'm concerned when the main act stands in front of the crowd, before the game even starts, and commits a blatant disrespectful act...

    To cleanse the palate, I think he means “education” in terms of civic education, i.e. familiarity with policy and the candidates’ backgrounds, not grade-level achieved. It’d be weird if he didn’t since James himself famously skipped college after being drafted number one out of high school. Still, how often do you get to watch a mega-star athlete call the voters of his home state ignorant? This’ll be an interesting test to see if there’s anything Ohio’s favorite son can say or do to piss off his fans. Besides committing to play for another team at the end of a...

    There are racist emblems. Chief Wahoo isn’t one of them. “Everything about the Indians is awesome except their very racist logo,” proclaimed a USA Today headline last Monday. Cleveland’s baseball team was at that point 18 victories into an amazing winning streak that would stretch to 22 — an American League record, and the longest winning streak in major league baseball in more than a century. But baseball writer Ted Berg devoted only a few sentences to the Indians’ brilliant performance before moving to his main subject: “the extremely racist logo they insist on wearing on their caps.” On any...

    CAMPBELL, Ohio — Forty years ago, on Sept. 19, thousands of men walked into the Campbell Works of Youngstown Sheet and Tube along the Mahoning River before the early shift. Like every fall morning, they were armed with lunch pails and hard hats; the only worry on their minds was the upcoming Pittsburgh Steelers game on “Monday Night Football.” The only arguing you heard was whether quarterback Terry Bradshaw had fully recovered from the dramatic hit he took from a Cleveland Browns player the season before. It was just before 7 a.m., and the fog that had settled over the...
