Arizona Republican Governor Jan Brewer has vetoed the “religious freedom bill” passed by the Republican legislature. While there is no mention in the bill of same-sex marriage, or even homosexuals, most people believe same-sex marriage and homosexuals were the targets of the proposed law.
Samantha Fuhrey, NCSS superintendent of schools, believes the Newton County School System is experiencing gains.
Business in the Georgia House intensified last week. We considered 77 bills and resolutions on the House floor in a number of lengthy sessions, while at the same time producing several dozen bills per day from numerous committee meetings.
I have often referred to California and Hollywood in particular as Granola Land. You know, because it is home to so many fruits and nuts. I have visited Hollywood and Vine on a few occasions and seen a lot of very strange things that have strengthened my opinion.
Whether anything Obama says or does would stop anyone remains questionable. But surely the West has more financial clout than Russia’s kleptocratic extraction economy that exports little but oil, gas and vodka.
With mid-term elections still more than eight months off, this column might be premature. Then again, I’m already hearing political ads on the radio, so maybe my timing isn’t so bad—especially since I hope to start a grass-roots movement.
Obama and the Democrats still believe that no one who works full time should have to be poor. Despite their new rhetoric, Republicans obviously disagree.
Try as I might I cannot ignore the fact that baseball season is just a few weeks away and while we are still watching our forecast for possible mixed precipitation, in Florida and Arizona the big leaguers and want-to-be big leaguers are getting ready for the season. Every year I get just as excited as the year before about the coming season.
After much criticism from conservative quarters, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has decided, at least for now, to withdraw plans for its proposed study of how media organizations gather and report news.
The House began shifting gears towards more floor work last week as the intensity of the session ratcheted up. We voted on 33 bills and resolutions. I’m going to focus on four that were rather out of the ordinary.
Common Core’s mission includes the provision of “a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them.”
It was a wise man, indeed, who said, “One should never watch laws or sausage being made.” I assure you, you won’t care for either if you do.
Last Friday, Obama ostentatiously visited drought-stricken California. Surprise! He blamed climate change. Here even The New York Times gagged, pointing out that far from being supported by the evidence, “the most recent computer projections suggest that as the world warms, California should get wetter, not drier, in the winter.”
Things have really changed in education since I first entered a classroom in 1958. To my parents, being in school was the most important task I would have for the next 12 years — or 16 years — or 55 years. Being in school was my job and if Tommie and Homer Huckaby passed anything along to their second child it was their work ethic.
