Last week, I traveled to schools around the state to hear from students, nurses, parents, and health professionals about what severe allergic reactions can mean when they occur unexpectedly in a classroom, playground, or sports field. These severe allergic reactions – known as anaphylaxis – can occur within minutes of exposure to any allergen. The most common allergens that cause anaphylactic shock are food, insect stings, and medications.

“Common sense is not so common.”

- Voltaire from “A Pocket Philosophical Dictionary”

 

Every day the U.S. federal government and its agencies appear to do their best to prove Voltaire correct.

Right now the safety of the vast majority of small communities around the country is under attack. As the Affordable Care Act - Obamacare - limps and stumbles its way toward full implementation after three years, Americans continue to discover new items within the legislation that will affect them adversely.

 
On the Other Hand — That four-letter word

As I sit here writing this I am anticipating our impending snowfall. A check at 11:15 p.m., the white stuff was falling.

I know, I know, most don’t like to hear that four-letter word — S - N - O - W. It means shoveling and salting and vehicles getting stuck, difficult driving, longer commutes, etc.

I was talking to my mother a few days ago and she said something that struck fear in my heart. Yes, my gentle, loving mother said what no one wants to hear: “Ya know, it’s just three weeks until Christmas!”

Aaaaaaahhhhhhh!

 
Fighting for a fair Farm Bill

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.
