Buckeye Back Roads Tour: We campaigned in West Union, Ohio, where I was interviewed by People’s Defender newspaper reporter Carleta Weyrich. She lives on a farm and said she is concerned about rural issues, as are many people in Adams County. County Commissioner Brian Baldridge told me that many people here are now doing the “6 O’clock shuffle,” as he colloquially refers to it. That is, with the relatively new, four-lane Route 32 coming out of the Cincinnati area, many here are now commuting an hour each way into Cincinnati to work. This, for one, sends continual plumes of global warming emmissions upward. And with the advent of Route 32, Adams County will soon be in the jaws of urban sprawl, a cancer that is eating away at farmland all over the country. As a solution, we propose the “20-hour-work-week-shuffle.” Translated: We ask people to cut back dramatically on their lifestyles, go to things like house sharing to halve expenses, and job share in local settings.
