Where's the money?


Last August, Governor Beshear came to Clinton and brought a check for $730,000 for the sewer rehabilitation project. It's March 2010 and the money the governor brought is somewhere safe - or so we've been told.   Where it's not is being applied to the bond to bring the cost of sewer service down for local residents.  That's why residents will gather in protest Monday evening during the City Council meeting.

On August 12, 2009, Governor Steve Beshear will be in West Kentucky giving out $$$ on Wednesday.
Fulton County at 9:30. Hickman County at 11. Henderson at 1:00.

Why I'm picketing Clinton City Hall on Monday
Below is a portion of the letter I sent to the Hickman County Gazette...

People are doing without to pay their combined water and sewer bills. City government seems deaf to the suffering that the increased sewer rates have caused... 
 
So, come Monday, March 1st, before the six o’clock meeting. I will be on the sidewalk outside of City Hall holding a sign. I invite residents unhappy with their bills to join me in silent witness. We will witness the fact that the City has not used the Governor’s money as he intended it to be used.

Senate Bill 142 - should the Bible be an elective?
As a Sunday school teacher, a Christian and a former educator, I believe that Senate Bill 142 is a terrible idea for a multitude of reasons.
 
First, to me, as a Christian, the Bible is not just any book. It’s not Life on the Mississippi or Silas Marner or Catcher in the Rye. It is a sacred book. It is THE sacred book of my religion. To turn it into a survey course like any other survey course lowers its value to that of any other lit book that students struggle with, are bored by and then never open again. The Bible deserves better than that. It deserves the attention of those who want to read it – not just for a grade on a transcript.
