  • How much is enough?

    People have differing views on matters concerning our school system in Marion County and I respect different opinions on these issues.

    Kentucky Retirement Systems stakeholders are shocked and appalled by the actions of the General Assembly regarding public pensions. Last week, in the space of about nine hours, the majority party produced a 291-page pension bill and voted it out of the House and Senate. Senate Bill 151 awaits Gov. Matt Bevin’s signature.

    Dear citizen,

    “The advantage of being armed…the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation…in the several kingdoms of Europe…the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” (James Madison, The Federalist, 46) (p.107, vol.71, firearms news)
