I’m not going to comment on Speaker Boehner’s performance. As with almost all politicians, there has been good and bad. I am going to comment on his “retirement”.
I have a problem with him considering his elected position a job from which he can retire. Stepping down from his position as Speaker of the House is fine, but that doesn’t change the fact that he ran for an office and barring health issues or something else catastrophic, he should honor his commitment to the people of Ohio and finish his term.
Representatives are elected for two year terms. It shouldn’t be that onerous to fulfill his commitment. The problem is that he’s a career politician. I have heard reports that he planned on retiring at the end of 2015 even as he was running for reelection for this term… which ends in 2016. He considers it a job, not a sacred trust with those he represents. It’s another reason so many are fed up with our government representatives theses days… They just don’t get it…

My father, Larry Berger, attended Rose Poly (now Rose Hulman) and was back there for a Homecoming event. He received a Blue Crest and Plaid jacket. He has been a supporter of the school and served on several committees/task forces. Dad is third from the left. One of the cool things here is that he has remained friends with Bill Perkins, just to Dad’s left, since they were fraternity brothers there. They continue to get together socially and both have winter places in suburbs of Phoenix, AZ.
Dad’s pleased that his grandson, Kameron Eisenhour, followed him to Rose and is currently a Jr. in the engineering program.
Hopefully that jacket doesn’t see a lot of wear though! Wow!
Vanadco Signs installed a new awning at Berger Audiology on Thursday. (And just in time for the rain today!) They did a nice job for Becky. It’s an aesthetic improvement that makes the office look more professional. Becky says she thinks it has lowered the temperature in the waiting area by about 10 degrees, plus she is able to open the blinds sooner in the morning. I think that concludes the building improvements and Dr. Rebecca Berger’s office is officially complete. Keep an eye out for a Ribbon Cutting in the near future.
If you want to see the before picture, you can find that in a previous post here.
Happy Constitution Day! Congress created Constitution Day in 2004 and chose September 17 as the day to celebrate it based on that being the last day of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787. Take the quiz at the Washington Post site here if you want to learn more. Hint: Apparently Benjamin Franklin is never the correct answer… <sigh>
Take a moment today to remember the 39 brave men who signed that document in 1787. Their courage and commitment should be celebrated.
Who you’re seen with and who you associate with say a lot about you. Both the gentlemen in the article I copied below have been associated with Easterday Construction Co., Inc. Bobby Cooper, is actually Robert Cooper the third and when he worked with us, he was known as B3 since is father, Robert Cooper the second, has been with us somewhere around forever. Bobby was a “good kid” and we had talked to him about considering apprenticeship classes when the job opportunity came up at Clay. He had attended classes to be a fireman and had served as a volunteer. We were disappointed to see him leave, but still proud to have been associated with him. Fortunately I have not had to see him in action as a firefighter, but I have seen him first hand as an EMT helping with my grandparents and have been pleased with his compassion and professionalism.
Art Jacobs was partially responsible for our signing up for Insurance Services with Gibson Insurance. Art always dealt with us honestly and with a desire to know our business. I always felt like I was being informed rather than pressured for a sale. Again, I’ve been fortunate enough NOT to have seen Art in action as a fire fighter, but I have seen him discuss safety issues on many occasions and I have no doubt that he is composed, professional and knowledgeable in his position as Captain of the Plymouth Fire Department.
Reading the article below, I was not surprised that these two individuals would stop and help someone in distress. They take their compassion for the communities they serve personally. I am proud to know them and say that Easterday Construction Co., Inc. has been associated with them.
