KCCC chair: let’s pass the referendum

For almost three years, the school board and the district staff have been working on a referendum proposal for Phase 2 of the Facilities Equalization Program. The process to develop this proposal has been consistently transparent. There have been countless public meetings and the district has maintained a visible link on its website for almost a year to engage citizens and keep them informed. The district did a great job of managing the projects in Phase 1 and two of my nieces, along with all of their student peers, have already benefitted from the new Jackson School in Camden.

Business owner supports Davis and Williams

As a long-time downtown business owner, I am, naturally, very interested in any changes in our City government. I've been encouraged by the actions of certain city council members and dismayed by others. I have never taken a public stand for or against anyone wishing to serve the public. In fact, I have made it a point to not declare myself publicly to any particular candidate for local, county or state office. That position stops right now.

Where are the women?

Women form more than half of the U.S. voting population and hold up half the sky. We should consider carefully issues that profoundly affect not only the economic security, health and well-being of our sex, but of the country itself. Many aware, thinking, and caring men join us -- recognizing it is for their benefit, also, to promote policies that help American families. Working families are struggling. Women are the sole or primary breadwinners in four out of 10 American families.

Domestic violence

The National Football League has found itself on the wrong end of unfavorable publicity recently, most of it stemming from the league's longtime stance of doing little to punish players who are convicted of domestic violence. A video of Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice punching his then-girlfriend (she's now his wife) in an elevator, knocking her to the floor in a violent gesture, brought the issue to the forefront. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has caught considerable heat from those who say he shoved the issue under a rug until the video forced him to take action. The same ...
