“To oppose corruption in government is the highest obligation of patriotism.”

I really don't understand why Julie Berry is mad with State Republican Party. Late last weeks flyer was nothing more than a trade mark Julie Berry campaign. Over promise and under deliver is what a Traditional Julie Berry campaign has been since the late 90's.
When you see Julie Berry on the campaign trail. Just ask her how she is going to lower your taxes? Ask her how she is going.to give small business a break to hire more workers? Ask her how she is going to do wonderful things with the School system?
If she gives any answer. Don't believe her one bit. Because it's impossible to do all those things with a Republican Super majority legislature and a Republican Gov.
The Julie Berry campaign lacks any ounce of substance. Don't be fooled!

Anytime a company ends an employees job as they are about to be vested, is an outright act of COWARD(S). In this world of Corporate greed, we have many CEO's, Directors, Managers, etc.... who care nothing about another employees welfare at all. These morons use people and only care about their own welfare and when these so called leaders retire or die, they are to be held on a * * *-like level. Not so. The few people who treat their workers with respect.....receive respect and loyalty in return.

Boy, have we got any Nominees for "Yerk of the Year of Madison"? I believe alot of these Moronish people go to Church every week just to make themselves feel blessed and redeem ones self from using people for their own greed. To screw with ones future retirement is low on my list.

Mr. Henry, sit out in the bushes and show the thief what a Louisville Slugger feels like. I like JB's formula too. The oposition is so afraid, to resort to stealing signs just cost them another vote........mine! I wish I had the Political gab for running for the School Board, I'd run. One area I would feel comfortable is when Contractors bids are reviewed. Being in construction all my life, I feel I would be aware of the costs of building matters and really be strict on construction and material Warranties. The comparison of salaries for actual work performed would be reviewed and the "BUDDY SYSTEM" for employment would be a thing of the past. Maybe our new candidates will have some of the same ideas.

ERISA protections, which are mandated by federal law, specifically prohibit employers from terminating employees prior to the vesting of their retirement plans in order to avoid the payment of a pension or the issuance of other pension benefits to the employee. What this means is that underhanded tactics such as terminating an employee just prior to being vested in the ERISA-protected pension program can be actionable through the court system.

Understanding ERISA

The Employee Retirement Investment Security Act, known as ERISA, is intended to prevent adverse actions against employee benefits programs, as well as to provide a stable platform for retirement plans so that employees can invest knowing that their money will be safe. Under ERISA, there are a host of rules regarding what employers can and cannot do with retirement accounts. These rules not only set limits on what retirement funds can be used for, they also mandate that the funds be managed with the employee's best interest in mind, and they prohibit employers from interfering with or changing vested pension benefits in any way. Further, when an employee's pension is close to vesting, ERISA prohibits any action on the part of the employer that is taken solely to prevent the vesting.

The ERISA program covers various types of legally protected retirement plans and insurance plans within the United States. Under ERISA, not only are pension benefits protected, but some sick pay and vacation plans may also be guaranteed.

It is the responsibility of both the employer and the employee to know their rights with regard to ERISA, as well as to know what rights the other party has, so that they can apprise themselves of whether or not everything is working as it should be under the law. If you have any concerns at all about your pension plan or about whether your employer has violated the protections available to you under ERISA, it is in your best interest to consult a lawyer.

Don't worry Money Wasted they can use the 50 plus thousand dollars in retirement funds they confiscated from the teachers they let go.... The teachers could not keep their $$$ because they had not met the length of service necessary to be vested. A couple were needing one more year at MCS to be fully vested.

I applaud the school for doing the right thing and cutting these people so the district can save a buck. Very intuitive too to leave the retirement accounts alone until the end of a calendar year... That way they usurped 6 months additional interest as well assisting in making this 5% raise possible... Very Financial Sound!!! You say No WAY ? I Say Oh yes the Did!

The City of Madison mayor, in his infinite wisdom has sent a tree company here to trim this 100 year old half dead water maple instead of removing it..the tree company has said it should be taken down completely, they are the experts, but evidently the mayor thinks he knows more. The next time we have a limb from this damned thing fall and damage my property or my vehicle it will be shoved where he can't see it. Twenty seven years and the tree company has been here at least a dozen times to trim it. With all of the money the city has wasted on tree trimming they could have taken it down and had a small tree planted in its place. Once again, our peabrained city leader is wasting tax dollars...I can't wait until the election!

Why. I heard that they were continuing on what donn Campbell had already gotten approved so thought it was o k. When c Barr's permit ran out they told her to come in to renew it when she found time. So it shows that stop work orders are personnel.

Was wondering why did the Madison Consolidated School Board just give school administrators pay raises that could be up to 5%? Administrators have two year contracts which are very lucrative compared to the average wage of Jefferson County. (Over $70,000 per year) If you sign a contract for a certain wage for two years, that is what you should get. Beginning to understand why there isn't any money to do building repairs.

And so it begins. I put out a Norbert Schafer for County Commissioner sign in my front yard today around 11:30. When I came home after 5, I found that it had been taken/stolen. I've been told a blueish silver car with tinted windows pulled to a stop near it not long after I put it in the yard and after I left for other things I had to do.

Let me be clear, any thefts that happen on my property of signs or anything will be reported to the Indiana State Police. When my signs for school board go out and if they start disappearing as did many of the No New Taxes anti referendum signs, that too will be reported to the Indiana State Police.

Obviously there are some in this community who are very afraid of the change that is coming. Stealing signs will not stop that and it will only motivate those who have committed themselves to bring a new direction to our government to work even harder.

Admin reply: There will be a bad case of lead poisoning for anyone trespassing upon my property to steal any of my personal property.
