I suggest we see if any of the inventors of Funyuns, Mountain Dew, or Hot Pockets were Ohioans.

No politicians - why honor a liar?

How about Colonal William Crawford, whose horrible torture killing by the Indians caused President Washington to order the conquest of the rest of Ohio.

While there are many great choices including John Glenn and Neil Armstrong, and Colonel Deeds (self-starter), and John Patterson (NCR), and Thomas Edison (lightbulb and just about everything else), the towering inventors are the two bicycle mechanics from Dayton Ohio, Orville and Wilbur Wright. They were named in Time Magazine among the 10 greatest of the 20th Century.

Got to go with the Wright Brothers. This would be fitting since they did not get a nickle of government funding for the invention that changed the world. Might be a good reminder to Congress.

Can you believe it? People searching for a way to waste more money. Why must we have statues of mere mortals? Why must we suffer the naming of buildings after the political parasites who have been living off all of us for all their lives? Then we have to be reminded of them when we pass the buildings named after them. I stopped going to the fair after they named one after Dickie Celeste. This is lunacy.
You are right, not only bad timing, bad taste. People losing jobs, houses. Why now? who gets to decide? This an affront to the taxpayers, the state is in a hole.

How about all the Indians who were robbed of their territory, had treaties broken, families butchered?

How about Frank Lausche, a Democrat who would today despise and reject his decadent and corrupt successors root and branch? If we have to replace a supporter of old-time slavery, it should be with a courageous opponent of the dual forms of slavery that his party all too often has enabled if not advocated, Soviet-style communism and welfare-state Marxism.

Which Indians - the ones who were in Ohio when the English landed at Jamestown? That would be kind of difficult, since the Indians that lived in Ohio then were slaughtered and driven out by Eastern tribes by the time Europeans reached Ohio. You'd have to pick a time, since the Indian tribes that controlled Ohio varied greatly depending on who was doing the conquering.

The Indian wars were a classic example of what happens when a stone age people who had not even invented the wheel interacts with a technologically superior group. If the roles were reversed, they would have done the exact same thing to Europe.

Charles F. Kettering of Colonel Edward A. Deeds are the two that I would nominate. Both made great contributions to Ohio and beyond. Kettering had a 140 patents, did much to build GM into the greatest company (at one time) in the world, advanced cancer research (Memorial Sloan Kettering) and was one great guy with a terrific sense of humor. Deeds was an industrial wizard and he with his business acumen and Kettering with his inventive mind brought more jobs to Ohio than probably anyone else. Deeds contributed a great deal to the aircraft industry, was on the board of Pan Am, TWA, Chairman of the Board of Pratt & Whitney. His contacts w/MIT and the Military saved over 100,000 lives through NCR's work w/the Uboat Enigma code. They also founded one of the first NFL teams, the Dayton Triangle. Deeds gave hundreds of acres to Denison University and over $1,000,000 in 1919, They both gave a great deal and never stopped working. Deeds was Chairman of the Board of NCR in his 80's. Both farm boys with tremendous character and much beloved by all.
