    There is a battle in our country. It is going on every day and it is being fought without many people even knowing it is happening. It is the battle for our American way of life and the freedoms that we treasure and enjoy.

    Pink is the new black – at least at PHI Air Medical.  No, it is not a fashion statement, rather a statement about life and health.

    October is breast cancer awareness month. PHI Air Medical is on a mission to touch the lives of moms, grandmothers, sisters, daughters and female friends this month.  

    One in eight women will be diagnosed in their lifetime, 40,000 die each year and every 14 minutes a life is lost to the disease – the reality is that precaution and awareness are the best defense.

    Those of us in Grant County have a special service in our community that some may not know about.

    Recently, I had to have surgery for cancer that required radiation twice a day for five days consecutive days and occurring six hours apart, at 6 a.m. and 4 p.m., on Thomas More Parkway.

    Due to some circumstances, I was not able to drive myself and needed help. I called the coordinator of the American Cancer Society and talked to Darlene Houchens. She in turn called volunteers that take their own time and expenses to help those in need like myself.

    Thanks to the 87 people who paid for and attended the Spears Foundation Feed the People Benefit for the Free Lunch Kitchen on Oct. 14. It was an awesome event and if you missed it, you missed something special.

    Tickets sold out two weeks before the event. We even added a surprise or two, but that’s what we always do when we have a Hogan House dinner or one of our other dinner events.  

    Taylor Henry put on a wonderful show mixing his own songs with a couple of favorites of his grandmother who was in the audience.

    I have known Brian Linder for several years and for the last couple of weeks I have been able to help him with his campaign for magistrate. That has been an experience that is out of this world.

    I’m writing this letter as an endorsement for Brian Linder of Dry Ridge, who is a candidate for one of our local magistrate races.

    Harvey Perleberg has my vote for jailer on Nov. 2. I know he has the ability and knowledge to lead the jail in the right direction and he has twice the experience of his opponent.

    Perleberg is a World War II historian. His father was a waist gunner on a B-17, who went on 36 missions over Europe. When a B-17 came to Lunken Airport, he took his father to see it. When he asked his father what he thought of it, his dad answered, “Well, I remember it being a whole lot bigger.”
