Touching citizenship story

I was touched by columnist Tom Eblen’s account of his recent visit to the citizenship ceremony presided over by U.S. District Court Judge Joe Hood. I am sure Eblen’s account brought back memories to others like me who witnessed their parents or other family members go through this impressive and meaningful ceremony.

School redistricting on the sly

The Jessamine County Board of Education is attempting to quickly and quietly redistrict the same neighborhoods they redistricted a mere four years ago without directly notifying parents and without adequate opportunity for public input.

Power of freedom

Few societies have ever experienced freedom. Some attempts began with the ancient Greeks and with the Magna Carta in the 1400s. Later, some European countries tried to allow citizens more freedom.

Bevin uncivil servant

Kentucky’s teachers, and retired teachers, demand an apology for Gov. Matt Bevin’s tirade against us, our professional organizations and legislators who stood up for public education. Calling us liars and making unfounded accusations about our motives while testifying to the House Education Committee is beyond the limits of civility.

Mein Trumpf

President Donald Trump appears to have adopted a technique of Adolph Hitler, who coined the term “The Big Lie” in his book, “Mein Kampf.” The technique uses a lie so “colossal” that no one would believe that a person “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.”

Free press helps all

Recently, President Donald Trump called the press “the enemy of the people,” and then barred some respected news outlets from a daily briefing. This is a sinister attempt to avoid accountability and control information.

Tighten immigration laws

College professor Roger Guffey’s Feb. 25 commentary is correct in naming many immigrants who went on to be recognized for their worthy achievements. However, none of those named entered this country in violation of the laws of the United States.

Justify the hypocrisy

Could Sen. Mitch McConnell — or any other Republican — tell me and the majority of voters (Hillary Clinton did get almost 3 million more votes than President Donald Trump) why we should not be protesting against Trump, when the Tea Party protested against President Barack Obama while the Republicans in Congress did everything they could to sabotage Obama’s presidency?
