On the Other Hand — Things are finally looking up PDF Print

I’m sure everyone has heard the fantastic news about Lakeview Farms making a commitment to Delphos and bringing its Bristol, Wisconsin, operations here.

President Gene Graves is a quiet hero. He looked at his options and saw a win-win for everyone. He believes in Delphos, he believes in the local workforce and he believes his business will thrive here. His faith in his company, Delphos and our people might just save us all in the end.

On the Other Hand — You get to decide where money comes from to fix budget PDF Print

I’ve been to all the meetings, I’ve been looking at the financials for months and I still come to the same conclusion: I am voting yes on the city’s .25-percent income tax on May 6. It is 25 cents on every $100 of earned income from a city resident. That’s $125 for someone who makes $50,000 a year.

If you had the stack of financials I have sitting before me, you would see there really is no painless way out of this hole the city is in without it. There’s been a lot of finger-pointing and blaming going around but ultimately, we are here and we need to work to fix it. It’s going to take “all” of us.

Dance dad extraordinaire PDF Print

We are welcoming another writer to the family this month. My brother-in-law Tim has been fortunate enough to find someone to publish his book “All In: My Amazing Journey as a Dance Dad.”

Tim is the father of Lotus, our little dancer.

A little known fact about Tim is he was once a professional bowler. He was really good at it but it wasn’t his true passion so he moved on. He’s familiar with the feeling of doing something because you do it well, not because you love it.

When he met our little Lotus, he quickly became enamored. Who wouldn’t? She is awesome.

He slid into the role of father with ease. He was there for the right reasons and he was in for the long haul. We all embraced him because he made Lotus and her mother happy. After all, isn’t that what we all want?

I know I have to; I just don’t want to.

It is inevitable. It is my destiny.


On the Other Hand — Hail to the leftie PDF Print

Today’s column is a tribute to southpaws or lefties. My brother is a leftie. (I’ve always thought he was odd but not because of that.)

Representing only 10 percent of the general human population, left-handers have been viewed with suspicion and persecuted across history. The word “sinister” even derives from “left or left-hand.”
