  • Are people actually color blind?

    We have never seen him driving. We thought he either doesn’t like to drive or that he just can’t drive. He gets to the stop light, but instead of stopping he asks: “What is the color of the stop light?” with no intention to stop at the red light. That’s how we found out why he didn’t drive; my friend is color blind deficient.

  • Reading impacts all areas of life, important to start early
  • Letting the light shine on legislator pensions

    The State Journal

    Among the blizzard of the bills that appear set to pass during this session of the General Assembly, most have been long-sought Republican initiatives previously blocked by Democrats.

    One bill that hadn’t seen the light of day until now would make legislators’ public pensions public record — and support seems decidedly bipartisan so far. Senate Bill 3, filed yet again by Sen. Chris McDaniel, R-Latonia, passed unanimously out of committee on its way to the full Senate.

    Add us to the list of supporters.
