I know that calendars can be confusing. They've been tampered with for ages, and 11 days were even eliminated back in 1582 to get the Gregorian calendar up to date, so to speak. A governor's aide conceded that the office had erred and promised to do better next year. Still, it might be a good idea to hold off on your Valentine cards until we can be assured that it will remain on the traditional day, whenever that might be..

Kasich agents of change Include Dr. King's birthday :
THE KASICH ADMINISTRATION arrived in Columbus trumpeting historic change. But little did we ever suspect that such change would include the Jan. 17 commemoration of the late Dr. Martin Luther King' Jr.'s birthday. Incredible as it may seem, Kasich signed a proclamation mistakenly declaring March 17 - St. Patrick's Day! - as the day to honor the civil-rights icon. Even for a person so confident of his ability to make things happen, it's unlikely that the governor would get very far with that idea.
