Opinion: Across the table comes a forecast

0

We had occasion to dine with a customer and his bride recently. The discussion, of course, turned to politics, as inevitably is the case when we all get together. Our guest is a rather astute fellow, well educated and on the corporate fast track, it seems. We talked about the Republican Party, and whether it really knows what the heck it is doing. Our guest was quick to point out that presidential aspirant Donald Trump (R-Billions) would fade after the holidays. Then came forth the poll results showing Trump trailing Ben Carson (R-Md.) in Iowa. Is this the beginning of the end, as our guest believes? It well could be, but we all agreed that after the holidays is the time to really zone in on results. You may find it as interesting as we did that our guest was quick to note John Kasich (R-Ohio) is, in his opinion, an “incredibly viable challenger” and “I think his numbers will improve” in the new year. We’re not so sure, but that would be interesting to watch.

Here’s another noteworthy improvement to traffic flow for Westfield: The new, $1,328,503 roundabout at West 161st Street and Oak Ridge Road is scheduled to open at 1 p.m. Nov. 2. The city says the roundabout will feature asphalt trails along the perimeter and comes as Westfield is beginning work with engineering consultant Parsons Brinckerhoff on a Safe Routes to School Plan for Oak Trace Elementary School. The plan will identify recommendations in the areas of education, encouragement, engineering and enforcement to improve the safety of students that walk or bike to school. The idea is to increase those numbers.

We salute Riverview Health, which earlier this week hosted its annual Breast Cancer Celebration of Life at Purgatory Golf Club in Noblesville. We’re told it was a phenomenal event. The crowd came from far and wide to honor those who have or have beaten breast cancer (including many of the ladies on today’s cover) and their supporters. This is a great community event that recognizes our residents’ perseverance in the fight against this insidious disease and it helps to bring to a close Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The battle must continue, and we ask that our female readers opt for increased awareness and earlier detection through screening.

With the Nov. 3 municipal election all but at hand, placement of candidates’ signage becomes, believe it or not, a safety issue. Once upon a time, pre-Current, we placed signs for candidates, and in some cases it was done incorrectly. INDOT has a timely reminder: Don’t obstruct views of motorists. Signs should not block visibility for traffic entering and exiting a roadway at intersections and driveways. Indiana Code 9-21-4-6 authorizes INDOT and local governments to remove advertising signs from their public thoroughfares. We urge the candidates and their supporters to be vigilant of the rules when placing signs.

We salute the Hamilton Southeastern Future Famers American Skill-a-Thon Team, which won the 4-H State Skill-a-Thon Championship. The skill-at-thon contest takes a large range and deep look at the livestock industry in several areas such as nutrition, medications, raising of the animals and more. Contestants had to correctly identify feeds, livestock equipment and breeds of animals as well as correctly judge meats and live-animal classes. There were individual and team competitions. The team will go on to the National Skill-a-Thon Championship in Louisville on Nov. 16, and we wish the members good luck there.
