T-R photographer Jim Cummings snapped this photo of a pair of cardinals on a wintry day. The Tuscarawas Valley had a little break from the cold weather earlier this week before the latest storm made a visit. Can spring get here fast enough? [Read More]

For months now, I have been inundated with mail addressed to a woman with the same last name as me, but a different first name, although it starts with a J, just like my name. The mailings are coming from all different sources such as companies affiliated with Medicare-related matters (particularly during the change your plan window), and also things like TV or online products or retailers.

Native to North America, this oddly-named knobby tuber, Jerusalem artichoke, is often compared to potatoes when cooked, but compared to a water chestnut when consumed uncooked. The Jerusalem artichoke is... [Read More]
Among the many innovations happening in biomedical research today, one of the most exciting is our ability to study "organs-in-a-dish". Called organoids, these three-dimensional structures grown in a laboratory culture dish enable a wide array of research studies heretofore impossible.Organoids are small, sesame seed-size clusters of living cells that resemble tissues and organs when examined under a microscope. They are grown under precise conditions in a laboratory dish... [Read More]

One blue surgical drape at a time, the patient disappeared, until all that showed was a triangle of her shaved scalp."Ten seconds of quiet in the room, please," said Dr. David J. Langer, chairman of neurosurgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, part of Northwell Health. Silence fell, until he said, "OK, I'll take the scissors."His patient, Anita Roy, 66, had impaired blood flow to the left side of her brain, and Langer was about to perform... [Read More]

They clean federal office buildings in Washington and nurse older people in Boston. They are rebuilding hurricane-wrecked Houston. And working on the Atlanta Falcons' new stadium. The plumbing and heating systems at Fannie Mae's new headquarters, the porterhouse at Peter Luger Steak House and even the Disney World experience have all depended, in small part or large, on their labor.They are the immigrants from Haiti and Central America who have staked their livelihoods...

I respond to the Tuesday Dispatch article "Regulators reject Trump administration proposal to support coal, nuclear." Coal is on a struggling last leg, and the idea that it should receive financial support to stay in the energy market is ridiculous. If a better resource comes along and out-competes dirty, dangerous coal, that is simply the market at work.We move past faulty, old products regularly without a problem, and yet the administration cannot seem to let go of...

Every day seems to bring a new outrageous action or statement by our president. His comments on Thursday about various "s***hole" nations simply follow in a direct line from his campaign rhetoric and actions, and even statements before that.This is not only embarrassing to us as citizens and insulting to Americans from these national backgrounds, but dangerous to our international relations, engendering passionate rebukes from around the world. Perhaps most disturbing is the... [Read More]
The Tuesday op-ed column "Gov. Kasich has year to rescue his legacy" by Matt Mayer asserted that Gov. John Kasich's failure to turn Ohio into a right-to-work state was his biggest failure. A further investigation into Ohio under Kasich would indicate that is far from his greatest failure.In April 2017, a Ohio House of Representatives report said that the Ohio's education system fell nationally from fifth to 22nd under Kasich. The average household income in Ohio ranks 32nd... [Read More]
I respond to the Wednesday cartoon by Dispatch Editorial Cartoonist Nate Beeler, which showed gubernatorial hopeful Dennis Kucinich in a spaceship. If Kucinich is a space cadet, as the cartoon implied, then bring in the Martians.I'd take Kucinich's "zany" thoughts on how to run a government (rationally, intelligently, sanely) over the entire lot of third-rate, corrupt, foolish Republicans currently running the show into the ground. This country desperately needs sane, morally... [Read More]
