  • It’s time to do the research, no matter the color of our feathers

    Merger. I have always considered that to be a dirty word when it comes to our local schools.

  • A karmic nightmare in progress

    I have always believed in karma - both good and bad.

    I know it may be a bit naive, but I honestly believe that when you do some selfless deed out of the pure goodness of your heart, whether it's large or small, something good will happen to you in return.

    That's not to say you should only do good deeds in anticipation of receiving something in return.

    Nevertheless, my karma has been a bit out of whack lately.

    I went to a movie theater a few weeks ago on a Friday night, and apparently, my karma was so off that it came back to haunt me.

    "The conversations concerning SEEK made me very anxious," said Campbellsville Independent Superintendent Diane Woods-Ayers. "The big question was how [the Kentucky Department of Education] was going to make this reduction."
