What doesn’t seem to be going on in my neighborhood is increased truck traffic. Clifty Drive is my neighborhood. The plan I thought with the closing of Hanover Hill to through truck traffic, was to send trucks along Clifty to get them out of downtown and then go south at the roundabout to get back to Rt. 56. I’m on Clifty regularly, and I can’t say the amount of truck traffic on Clifty changed a bit after July 1st. Just my anecdotal observation. Have people on West Main notices less truck traffic there since July 1st. ? Sure there has always been a truck here and there on Clifty. Still is just a truck here and there. MHO.

Well I can see it is time the Sheriff is starting to campaign for re-election. Don’t hear nothing from him most of the time and all a sudden several news release about how great his deputies are and how much the citizens support them. What a crock of you know what. I bet he is in fro a rude awakening when the others come out and throw their name in the ring. I wonder if he will stay in the running then or bow out so he doesn’t feel the agony of defeat.

Quick updates: KDH DID RESCIND $11.50 charge on Convenient Care bill as per my grievance that I was originally instructed total of $65.00 was all I owed. Way to go CEO/President Dozier!! Grate at NE cnr. of Main & Jeff./US421 WAS HELPED by City Street Dept. effort ( way to go Sorrels/Peak & Co.!! ) but INDOT still dragging feet on total repair. ******* Not sure I have overall clarity on Regatta situation??; JCBT AND City of Madison matching $50,000 contributions to hydroplane race?? Hmmm? Will there be a set of eyes from BOTH funders to make sure money is spent properly? There is no insult stated or implied to ask if monies will be appropriately monitored. Pass The Peace And Peace Be With You.

Would Diogenes find an honest man or woman in Jefferson County government/organizations? I wonder. Money is a great temptation and it appears that Jefferson County government/organizations have little or no systems to prevent abuse. Theft/fraud should be punished not rewarded. It appears that the local law enforcement and judicial system turn a blind eye to both.

If local officials took as harsh approach as they do with drug cases, this corruption would stop. A few days/years in jail for some of the corrupt "powers at be" would set an example and some of the problems would disappear and the rest would go away with proper controls over the money.

It also would help if people elected and/or appointed had some common sense not just be someone's relative, friend, neighbor, or just a nice guy/gal. Also not a past history of bad acts.

Great, pick and choose what to teach children, teach all to some, a little to a few and nothing to the rest. Then we can throw our hands up and wonder why we have an AIDS or other epidemic when an ignorant segment of the population hits the world and has to learn the facts from fast-talking strangers with ulterior motives. Deny and cover up the existence of things, then when a 15 year old boy introduces your 13 year old daughter to the concept, she'll have just one side to base her decision on. By that logic, I should go buy a car based only on what the salesman tells me, since prior knowledge, research or education only hinders decision making abilities, right?

The concern or rather lack of concern was originally posted to the MCS page which I monitor for JB. The issue is how a parent videoed her "meltdown" on the MCS community page because she was so distraught her daughter had been taught venereal disease is a risk with oral or anaal s*xx even if pregnancy is not. In addition the parent confessed she DID sign the consent for the class but did NOT review the content ahead of time- even though she obviously has issues with what is or isn't taught to her child. Subsequently & logically she found certain topics to be inappropriate for her daughter. At no time in between tears & verbal outrage and calls for the community to support her personal feelings was there any indication she had a reasonable discussion with the teacher or member/s of the school board. Instead she videoed the entire emotional outburst- posted & spoke of how her daughter was "confused & upset". Which obviously should have provided the perfect time to have a parent- early teen discussion about whatever she felt appropriate for her daughter. Instead she choose to broadcast her substantial moral indignation concerning the activities discussed being "wrong".

Some tried to explain the importance of teaching risks no matter the type of "encounter"- others commented on the fact she signed the consent (including myself). At least one c of course they should be. I commented that she signed a written consent & obviously failed to research the material.

For what its worth JB- this topic is probably going to violate your page standard because it seems her and few others take issue with certain types of "encounters" rather than the actual core content which is entirely appropriate- that being young persons need to know that just because a female cannot get pregnant from these activities doesn't mean the activity is risk free- obviously you can acquire VD during these activities. Having viewed the curriculum- (unlike the mother) the class does not encourage promiscuity, nor does it encourage annal or oral or for that matter what some consider "normal" female/male interactions. Bottom line- parents need to review & become informed about their students courses- not just human health but math, English, history etc etc. Get engaged with your students, help with homework and never-ever-never sign a consent for something with which you have no familiarity. Hope this helps JB. Take care Tams
