Never the less and even though this is a case of more intrusion into our daily lives by government, it is the right thing to do. Every human being should be able to share equally the matrimonial benefit of their love of another, no matter their sexual orientation. We're pretty sure God doesn't differentiate between a gay or heterosexual no matter what the right wing bible thumpers might think and preach.
Even with the SC decision you will still hear the paranoid ramblings from the right wing worried about infringements on religious rights and other nonsensical thoughts like this is a sign of the end of the world. But that's just the way they operate when progress interferes with their narrow minded view of things. Preach hate in the disguise of that's the way God wants it....
In the end though all that matters is a Congratulations to all the gay couples nationwide who if they choose can hopefully enjoy and prosper in a marriage with their loved ones,,,,their time was way overdue...

Certainly every student has their own personal experiences and memories to drawn from but I am curious about the overall picture and conditions that would cause my children to feel this way. They have both grown into fine adults who both furthered their education at the college and professional levels and now both own their own small businesses. So just what is it that brings the strong negative feelings they have toward their alma mater and high school experience.
I didn't attend JHS I went to a private Catholic school so I have nothing to add on a personal level, And I thought at the time JHS was a good option for a diversified experience after being well satisfied with the elementary education they received. Only after becoming adults did both my children say that both Parkview and JHS was not an option for their children's (my grandchildren) education....
Any thoughts or experiences that agree or disagree with their views ??? I'm curious ???

With only minor changes over the years Jeffersonville has basically the same traffic infrastructure that was used in the 60's. Allison Lane, Middle Road and especially Holman Ln. was never meant to handle the huge amount of traffic that has increased the last 50 years and has created a logjam of traffic everyday at rush hour and beyond.
Utica Pike, Allison Lane, Holman Ln.and Middle Road all need to be four lanes and a new route to the Jeffersonville side of Veterans Pkwy. and Clarksville needs to be built and soon. It's almost impossible to make a turn off or on Holman during rush hour Holman Ln. was basically a country road when built and is thirty years out of date.
Every mayoral administration including the present one has ignored traffic patterns and problems for years. The new businesses, jobs and progress is nice but traveling around this area is a nightmare a solution and acrions are needed...

Once again mayor Mike Moore has a plan in the works to develop the main entry into Jeffersonville along the 10th St corridor. Yesterday's proposed development includes two retail centers, three restaurants and hotel. It appears to be an impressive proposal to enhance the major "Gateway" into the city that will bring tax dollars, jobs and improve the aesthetics of this important area.
So let the political games and obstruction begin.....It's no secret that the Jeffersonville city council and the mayor pretty much despise each other. With this being an election year, this is a plum announcement by the mayor with the election being less than six months away. You can almost bet your last dollar head obstructionist Ed (Moe) Zastawny is "googling"(that's his way of doing research) "Keystone in an attempt to dig up some dirt on the proposal's developer. Already Moore's biggest critic NHBSM (Not Honest But Simple Mike) is dissing the chosen developer (Keystone) though he knows nothing about them.
Hopefully the Moore administration has done their homework and crossed their T's and dotted their I's this time so as not to allow another frivolous lawsuit like the one filed last year. Not Honest Mike's lawsuit not only delayed a similar project but scared off the potential developer White Reach from
doing business with the city.
The BatBlog predicts this hapless Jeffersonville city council will now go into their political stall mode to hold up this project as long as possible (remember where you heard it first). They will want no part of breaking ground anytime before election day to minimize Moore's re-election chances.
The last project they (council) stalled over sewer problems, traffic ....drive thru restaurants and other petty issues...and look for more of the same on this project. This councils wants to feel important but they end up looking foolish and stupid like they have with wanting the new Jeff "Green team" manager to have a certification that only 37 people in the whole world have, ending Jeff city court and the ritzy glitzy, over priced soccer complex no one wants.
Moore isn't without fault in this feud between him and the council, but he has shown a propensity to get things done with attractive projects ...Veteran's Pkwy., the riverfront and the east end are thriving under Moore's leadership..... he has earned a second term,... especially when his opponent Dennis Julius has shown NO leadership capabilities during his term on the city council.
As for the new entry way project......Let the games Begin !!!

HT is a Master of Horticulture and has the certificate to prove it and years of experience in the field of horticulture. The only problem appears to be the difficulty HT might have working with the idiots on the council ,none of whom are "certified" to be city council members....It should be interesting....

|Ed "Moe" Z is big on certificates and certification|
The BatBlog believes the reason that only 37 people nationwide and one Saudi Arabian has achieved this certification is because the certificate and it's credibility isn't worth the paper it's written on. This is just another case of Ed. Z and his city council cronies trying to blow smoke up the taxpayer's asses and expecting us to buy into their stupid ideas and actions. Like the decision to eliminate Jeff city court and the soccer facility scam earlier this council has proven their poor ability to provide leadership with our tax dollars...as they continue to play childish political games instead of working toward progress...Most likely the council's cry for certification was just another political jab at mayor Mike Moore's choice for the position...another case of political jealousy and counter productive behavior from an non productive city council...
