Time to cut ties with the tie, NFL

By Garth Shanklin Sports Editor What in the world was that? For most of Sunday morning, I couldn’t answer that question. Like some of you, I had just watched the Bengals battle Washington to a tie, which all things considered isn’t the worst possible outcome. The Bengals in all likelihood should have won the game [ Read More ]

Goldberg’s ‘Patient’ a guide for caregivers

“Call me if you need anything.” When your friend shared her diagnosis, that was all you could think to say but, of course, she’ll never call because she has cancer and she needs more than six words. What to do? Read “Loving, Supporting, and Caring for the Cancer Patient” by Stan Goldberg, and learn what [ Read More ]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Vote yes on Issue 15

Our county parks are a crown jewel here in Clermont County and a vital part of the quality of life we so enjoy. Just recently my wife and I took our 2 year old son down to the bank of the East Fork of the Little Miami river at Sycamore Park in Batavia Township during [ Read More ]

LEE HAMILTON
A sobering look beyond the election

This campaign year has been full of twists and turns. We don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow, let alone on Nov. 8. So talking about what comes afterward seems premature. But it’s been on my mind a lot, because I’m worried. This is not about who wins the presidency. I’m concerned about the aftermath [ Read More ]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Bixler not a real Republican

Dear Editor: Tom Bixler is running for Clermont County Commissioner as a “real Republican.” In The Clermont Sun he wished to spread the wealth around.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Vote yes for park levy

Dear Editor: My family and I have been enjoying Clermont County parks since we moved to Batavia in 1999. I remember taking my oldest daughter, now 17, for her first stroller walk at Sycamore Park. The picture of her by the hollowed out sycamore tree next to the trail is still one of my favorites. [ Read More ]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Demand for police increasing

359… That’s the number of times that other police departments responded into Goshen in the last four months to provide back-up to Goshen PD or handle emergency calls because no Goshen officer was available. The need to restore lost police officer positions and our detective position is of critical importance to the safety and security [ Read More ]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Levy and repeal are connected

In a few short days many of us will be going to the polls to decide many issues facing us as a nation and community. And while most of our attention has been focused on the national issues, we are also faced with some weighty issues in our own backyard. The issues I speak of [ Read More ]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Wenstrup focuses on real problems

To the Editor: This is a trying and divisive time in America. Some say the most divisive. Unfortunately, too many of our political leaders use this as an opportunity to simply attack the other side, without putting forth their own proposals to make things better. Congressman Wenstrup is different. He focuses on solving real problems [ Read More ]
