I’ve been following a thread on local social media that has upset many. Theres a S*xEd program at MCS (I’m also told Southwestern) that kdh first brought in & is clearly someone’s idea of a faith based program. It might be Methodist or Baptist, Evangelical, Catholic, Muslim, Episcopalian, Protestant or Lutheran or who knows. But clearly the program was designed by and is instructed by self appointed prophets of right & wrong. I just don’t know which prophets of which faith of which church. And no, in this day & age of Christian White Knights- simply saying one is a Christian is not enough to ease my mind. We are predominantly a Christian nation- beyond that I believe we are predominately a nation of kind people, Christian or not. None the less, I was raised a Bible school attending, Sunday School Baptist who was warned of false prophets & the dangers of wicked messages.

JB- I know The Free Press does not do G-0d or S* ex and this is both -but behind this story is the fact that a small group of persons from a certain faith forced their way into the schools. Supposedly all our community’s kids have to take this class which as far as I can tell is being taught by who knows who because none of them are willing to say if they are licensed teachers & none have been willing to submit their resumes because I’m doubtful they have formal training or education in human sexuality related diseases -the psychology of abusive relationships-birth control etc.

It’s a very hot topic & rightfully so but for me the bigger issue is how did one small group of people infiltrate our schools to become the authoritarian voice on matters of faith and religion. Such things belong to the parents & the family’s church, not public schools & self made prophets. Regardless, if the school is going to allow a human sexuality course - (which I agree should be available- but optional)- it above all other courses should be taught by licensed teachers who are exceptionally qualified in the areas of psycho-sexual human development, STDs, birth control, healthy-safe relationships & of course personal & family resources for additional information. Otherwise, “Lay” teachers in this particular field of study quickly dissolve trust in our public schools. My rant for the day... rivers rising. Tami

Marriott is investing zero money. They come in after the project is complete and only to manage a hotel and restaurant.

I will clarify a few points concerning the youngest mayoral candidate - and, again, I wish him well. I did not SAY nor do I BELIEVE that his youth ( in and of itself ) renders him unelectable. I also did not refer to any degree of inexperience that he may or may not have eschewing him as a viable choice; after all we must start somewhere. My ONLY point was the ambitions that were quoted in the M.C. as taking up his time, involvements and efforts to where I cannot understand how he will be able to focus on his public duties. Case closed! ######### Let's take a step back from this Old Cotton Mill ( Meese, Inc. ) renovation. It's STILL in the floodplain. The rising waters of years-to-come may never reach the actual building, BUT, there was a lot of landscaping and what looked like a few partial roads/driveways on the south or river side of the proposed bldg. that would definitely be inundated. Are the MARIOT and other investors aware of this likely possibility? And why are they locating downtown as opposed to hilltop where there is ample space available? The last several hotel/motel franchises have opted for the hilltop. Also what about the Hillside Inn just up above the Meese property a few blocks? Pass The Peace And Peace Be With You.

Andrew said on Inside Indiana Business the Cotton Mill project will be a part of the Marriott Hotel chain. It will succeed if that is true and be a actual destination.

"I think it is often easier to make progress on mega-ambitious dreams. Since no one else is crazy enough to do it, you have little competition. In fact, there are so few people this crazy that I feel like I know them all by first name."

Mr. Warren: While the life of our country and the party system depend on the young people getting involved, I have the same concerns as you about Mr. Hernandez. It would appear that he is a very intelligent young man but, my guess is that he has not had enough life experiences to become Mayor on his first attempt in politics. I truly wish he had started as a council person in order to learn what would be required of him as Mayor. But on the other hand we have had mayors who were a figure head only. You only need to be smart enough to hire smart people to do the work, or maybe some not so smart!

The M.C. has given MR. HERNANDEZ some needed publicity. No fault/no foul and fair and square! But - and let's take a slightly closer and somewhat analytical view here - he's got some Grade-A serious and quite admirable further education, military service and life plans. All this is splendid and I do APPLAUD his youthful ambitions... way to go MR. HERNANDEZ!! But my brow is deeply furrowed and tightly knit in earnest confusion!??! Where is he finding the time to serve as local mayor should he win amidst all the aforesaid future goals? Did the M.C. err in his bio.? Was something miscommunicated between interviewer/interviewee? ########### What is going on with article length? The " AND THEN THERE WERE 2 " M.C. story, Sat. 2/9/19, by TALI HUNT went on endlessly, front and back pages. It didn't seem to say much. And the EDITORIAL was pretty much the same spiel rehashed. Yeah, lots of print but not much content. Are we reporting news or merely filling up page space? Two of the four articles on the Thur., 2/7/19, M.C. front page was about a musician - lead story - and the M.C. being delivered by the U.S.P.S. Soooo, a story in the M.C. about the M.C. I guess the music/musician stories are worthwhile, but I do not see them as front page material. So can they be relegated to the inner pages? Pass The Peace And Peace Be With You.
