    Law-abiding public must speak up

    My heart goes out to all the people who lost loved ones in Connecticut. This is an awful thing to happen.

    A few years ago I wrote about gun-free zones. Unfortunately, the prediction I made has come true. A lot of people are and have blamed the gun, but it was not the gun’s fault. A gun does not get up off the table and go and shoot people.

    Fiscal cliff climbing perspective

    Has it ever occurred to anyone that the fiscal cliff everyone is talking about is not one we’re going to fall down, but rather, one that must be climbed? So, if those in charge would quit looking down and look up for a change, then maybe someone could figure out how to make a molehill out of a mountain. To those in Washington, I say, “It is your mountain — get over it, for our benefit.”

    Pay attention, retirees

    The governor appointed a Kentucky tax reform panel earlier this year, which is considering a change that taxes retirees’ pensions.

    Lt. Gov. Abramson is chairman of the Blue Ribbon Panel on Tax Reform. On. Nov. 9 he said the panel could recommend tweaking the tax code that exempts taxes on pensions of $41,100 or less. Abramson said panel members are looking at decreasing the pension limit to just $15,000.
