Becky’s Open House was Friday. She had a lot of friends show up. Mayor Senter was there for the Ribbon Cutting. The Pilot News was there and took the above picture which appeared in the weekend addition of the Pilot.
Becky was pleased that some of the Doctors that originally hired her came to wish her well. Her office wasn’t the same after they left.
Thanks to everyone that showed up to support her!
I lost another good friend at the end of last month. Bobetta (Bobbie) Ruhnow passed away on October 31st. You can read her impressive obituary here. But that obituary hardly does her justice…
I first became acquainted with Bobbie as a friend in the early nineties shortly after I moved back to Culver. Dad said that part of the business was public service and soon after attending a few Chamber of Commerce meetings as Easterday’s representative I was asked to join the board. Bobbie’s involvement there led us to work together on many Culver projects including the inception of the Second Century Committee, the Mary Means Study, the Osborn Square Study, the Ratio Charrette and the Ratio Comprehensive Plan. Eventually we were involved with so many things together she quipped, “If you show up for Thanksgiving Dinner next week, I won’t even bat an eye. I see you enough that you’re like part of the family.” There were many times she joked about wanting to adopt me… I felt honored that she felt that way about me.
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.
