101st Airborne goes into Afghanistan
Editor’s Note: This war has become very personal for us. Our son, John Barger, a Captain in the Kentucky National Guard, is taking his command of Combat Engineers into harms way. His unit is now joining the 101st Airborne Division in Afghanistan. As his family for the safe return of the 500 young men and women who make up Kentucky’s combat engineers joining the 101st, we can only watch in frustration as our political leaders in Washington and Frankfort re-arrange the deck chairs on the “Titanic” ship of state. We support our troops, but we question what their mission is now that we have reached victory as defined by our President.

New Burdern of More Taxes on our Future
One of Kentucky’s cornerstones of economic development is keeping college educated citizens in the state. The highest paying jobs of the 21st Century will be information age or knowledge base jobs. Many of these jobs will be established in areas and fields that will seem like science fiction to the jobs of the 20th Century. The 2009-2010 Kentucky Executive Budget will hurt higher education in profound ways which will limit students access to an affordable education. Already, the University of Kentucky has announced a 9 % increase for next year’s students. Murray State University followed with a 6 % increase for next year. MSU had planned a 9 % increase until the student representative on the board introduced, fought for and won a 6 % increase. In Saturday’s Courier-Journal Editorial page, a well written statement was made concerning the issue of viewing increase tuition when a new form of taxation on students and their families.

Kentucky National Guard 201st Engineer Battalion Deploys to Afghanistan
This war has become very personal for us. Our son, John Barger, a captain in the Kentucky National Guard, is taking his company of Combat Engineers into harm's way. His unit is with the 101st Airborne Division in Afghanistan.

As one of the families praying for the safe return of the almost 500 young men and women who make up Kentucky’s combat engineers joining the 101st, we support our troops, so we can only hope their mission in Afghanistan will get the support and attention as the war in Iraq.

We urge our political leaders to bring the same devotion to duty that our soldiers bring to theirs.
