WASHINGTON (AP) — A member of Congress is requesting a hearing on the Washington Redskins’ name, calling it “another example of racial insensitivity in sports” in the wake of Donald Sterling’s lifetime ban from the NBA.

Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., sent a letter Friday to the chairman of the Committee on Energy and Commerce citing the derogatory nature of the word “redskins” and suggesting the committee use its influence to persuade team owner Dan Snyder and the NFL to change the name.

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.

DEAR EDITOR:

I want to personally thank the Delphos police officer that happened to be in the right place at the right time.

Recently, my granddaughter, Anna Fitch, and two of her girlfriends were taking a bike ride along Pierce Street here in Delphos. As they were riding, they came upon a baby owl lying on the sidewalk. They went over to the owl and it opened its eyes and appeared to be hurt. They didn’t know what to do. About that time, a Delphos police officer drove by and the girls flagged the officer down. He stopped his car and got out to see what was wrong. The girls explained the owl looked hurt and the officer told them it looks like the owl has a broken wing. He went over to his car, got a box out and picked up the owl, very carefully, and placed the owl in the box. He took the box, with the owl and put it in the police car. He assured the girls he would take care of the owl and drove away.

WASHINGTON — The Cliven Bundy spectacle in Nevada has provided a Wild West backdrop for our hottest political issues as we gallop toward the midterm elections.

Politically, the conflict between the Bureau of Land Management and the Bundy family has highlighted the importance of picking one’s battles wisely. Suffice to say, a smattering of pundits and politicians drank from the wrong chalice.
