Thought for the Day:


Apparently  I'm supposed to be more angry about what Mitt Romney does with his money than what Barack Obama does with mine.

Bearenting

Parenting, bear style:





No 'time out', no excuses, no ignoring the offense and the offender.

Just punishment - and - forgiveness, sure and swift.

A lot of 'modern' parents could learn from this.

Fallen Heroes: 4 From Ohio

Capt. Nicholas Rozanski, 36, was one of three Ohio National Guard soldiers killed on Apr. 4 in Afghanistan's Faryab province.

Along with Master Sgt. Jeffrey Rieck, 45, of Columbus, and Master Sgt. Shawn Hannon, 44, of Grove City, Capt. Rozanski, who is from Dublin, made the ultimate sacrifice when terrorists attacked his unit with a suicide vehicle borne improvised explosive device.

 

As the state of Ohio mourns these devastating tragedies, including the death of Army Staff Sgt. Christopher Brown, 26, of Columbus, who was killed in action the previous day in Kunar province, the family of Capt. Rozanski has quickly and selflessly set up a memorial fund that will be used to fund scholarships for children in the Dublin community. 

 
"The scholarship will enable future generations of young, courageous men and women like Nick Rozanski to follow their dreams," the website says.

Please consider contributing to this memorial fund while keeping the Rozanski, Rieck, Hannon, Brown, and families of all our fallen heroes in your thoughts and prayers. Because after all, the brave men and women of our military are all part of one big family to which we also belong: the United States of America.

"Nick, a graduate of Dublin Coffman High School and The Ohio State University, was an amazing father, husband, son, brother & friend to all who knew him," the website says.
