     Since July 1 have you noticed a 6 percent sales tax added to previously untaxed services?  This is a tax passed by Kentucky Republicans, including Sen. Paul Hornback, the first of this year.  If you use any of the below, you are paying extra.

  • Retired teacher- Oct. 3, 2018

     As a retired teacher, I hear all the time how young people need to take civics courses and learn about our country and government.

    After watching the Kentucky Supreme Court pension hearing last week, I think Gov. Bevin’s attorney needs a few lessons on the different branches of state government and our constitutionally guaranteed system of checks and balances.

    I am a grandmother, and my granddaughter went to New Castle Elementary School for three years. During that time period, I myself spent many hours at the school helping. I am really upset I guess is easy way to say it.

    It’s that time of year. School has started, kids are getting back in the groove and the notes are starting to come home. You know the notes–the one where the teachers ask you for items for the classroom all year, the one where the band has a fundraiser, the one where a team needs help. As a friend of many school teachers and as a past band booster president I would like to ask all of the parents to do just one thing this school year. Don’t make someone beg you for help.

    Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions should be charged with kidnapping and convicted for their crimes against immigrant families at our borders. There is no other reasonable and just response to this outrage. Americans must acknowledge and actively resist this lawless president and his administration and its enablers. I, for one, have had enough.
    Democrats and Independents must get up off the couch and vote in the upcoming midterm election. A twenty or thirty percent response from voters is shameful and inadequate, because our democracy is under threat.

    I believe we should start by reforming and protecting our elections. Everyone eligible to vote should be able to do so without unnecessary inconvenience, fear of being purged from voting rolls, or concern that machines that can be hacked in five or six minutes won’t count their votes correctly. And wherever possible, state and national legislative districts should be dawn by nonpartisan bodies to more fully represent the diversity of opinion and interests that is one of the greatest assets of our nation.

    As director of student services at HCPS, I am given the task of enforcing mandatory student attendance. Not always a fun job, but very rewarding when I see the pictures in the Local at the end of the year of all our perfect attendance students.  To me, there is no better student accomplishment than having the fortitude and support to make it to school every day in a given year. It is a quality that transfers well into the “real world” of employment and domestic success.
