  • Pre-filed bills run the gamut for 2015 legislative session

    A few weeks from now, the General Assembly will return to the Capitol as it does each January to begin a new legislative session. Since this will take place in an odd-numbered year, it will only last for 30 working days, and the first four of those will be dedicated to electing House and Senate leaders and establishing most of the chambers’ committees for the next two years. Bills and resolutions will be considered in February and March, but the state’s budget will not be one of them, since that is completed in even-numbered years.

  • Letter to the editor: What about public input?

    The Marion County school board voted at its Nov. 25 meeting to hold its regular meetings on Thursdays at 4 p.m. for 2015. Jerry Evans cast the only opposing vote and was the only board member who advocated on behalf of his constituents for more convenient public access. It is reasonable to consider the contempt that this administration has for the public they purport to serve.

  • Education heading in the right direction in Kentucky

    As students near the end of the semester, they are invariably starting to think about the grades that will determine whether their Christmas break is actually a joyous one.
    For Kentucky’s educational system, our “report cards,” so to speak, have already arrived. They came earlier this fall from the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence, a non-profit organization that has been a driving force behind education reform since the 1980s, and the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE).
