Dear Editor, Kuna kids are worth the investment, just as all kids are in the state of Idaho. I am a parent of 3 children in the Kuna School District. All eyes are on Kuna to see if the levy will pass on May 20th. It is unfortunate that our state has defunded the schools to the point that we are relying on a vote to operate schools. An 11% cut in the current budget will affect Kuna students. As I have one child that will be entering 1st grade, I wonder what her class size will look like.As two entering high school, I wonder what the limitations will be for them. They currently do a great job with providing a variety of interests that help students find their passion. I just learned that the 2 seniors graduating in my neighborhood are getting 4 year scholarships. Kuna School District must be doing something right. Kuna has amazing teachers, and if funded correctly can continue to give our children great opportunities with a variety of choices within the public schools. Great schools bring in more families and business to the community. Please vote yes for our kids, our future, and our community. — Jennifer Leuck ——————————————————————–
TAKE BACK IDAHO
This country’s original 13 Colonies were once individual sovereign nations; they were Nation States, just as Germany, France, Spain, etc. are independent nations. Our Colonists joined together and formed the Federal government to protect their rights from foreign intrusion. But instead of being the servant of the States, the Fed has become the master. It has run amuck. Idaho State needs a change in State leadership to reclaim its sovereignty, and not the kind of change forced upon it by the present Federal Administration, to which Idaho officials now bow. Idaho’s current leadership has been out of touch with the needs and wishes of Idahoans for years. They promise Idaho values but deliver the goods to the National Tyrants. The following candidates for Idaho’s state seats stand for a free and competitive health-care market instead of Obama Care’s restrictive Federal health care mandates; for State directed education instead of the U.N.’s Common Core intrusion over parental rights; for ownership and control of Idaho lands instead of Federal bureaucratic controls which has effectively wrecked Idaho’s economy; for the people to control Idaho’s destiny instead of governmental inflictions, strings-attached handouts, invoked regulations, and political cronyism. Those candidates are: Russ Fulcher, Idaho State Governor; Lawerence Denney, Secretary of State; Jim Chmelik, Lieutenant Governor; Chris Troupis, Attorney General; Todd Hatfield, Controller; and John Eynon, Superintendent of Public Instruction. These are moral, principled, God-fearing candidates. Let’s take back the State of Idaho!!
